Rahane slams century as India sets 481-run target

NEW DELHI (AP) -- Ajinkya Rahane scored his second century of the match Sunday as India declared its second innings at 267-5 on the fourth day of the fourth and final test to set a 481-run target for South Africa.

Rahane struck 100 not out with eight fours and three sixes but captain Virat Kohli missed out on a three-figure mark as he was out for 88.

Wriddhiman Saha was the other not out batsman, on 23.

Rahane, whose first innings knock of 127 had helped India gain a 213-run lead, carried on from his overnight score of 52 to pile on the agony for South Africa.

India is in a strong position to go 3-0 up in the series.
