India ripped through South Africa's middle and lower order on Wednesday to win the second test at Kingsmead by 87 runs and level the three-match series between the top two test teams.
Fast bowlers Zaheer Khan and Shanthakumaran Sreesanth had three wickets each in South Africa's second innings as top-ranked India took 7-114 on day four, bowling out the home team for 215 an hour after lunch.
Khan finished with 3-57, Sreesanth 3-45 and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh had 2-70 to lead India to just its second test match win in South Africa. Ashwell Prince top-scored with 39 not out for the home team.
India has lost all four of its previous series in the country. The teams will now contest a series-deciding match in Cape Town, beginning on Jan. 2.
