Johannesburg, Mar 31(ANI): South Africa has won the sole Twenty20 international against India at the Wanderers by 11 runs after rain played spoilsport during the Indian innings.

India had swiftly rushed to 71 without loss after 7.5 overs when heavy rain curtailed the match, handing the Proteas a win by Duckworth-Lewis method, after they had earlier set a target of 220.

India would have required 83 runs without a wicket falling to win the match one ball short of eight overs, Sports24 reports.

In form Lonwabo Tsotsobe, who conceded just 15 runs off his three overs, was the pick of the Proteas bowlers.

The T20 match was played for South African all rounder Jacques Kallis' foundation, and he himself starred with the bat, scoring 61, as South Africa scored 219 in their stipulated 20 overs.

Colin Ingram played a belligerent innings of 78, and along with Kallis, had a blazing 119-run partnership off 81 balls.

The score kept ticking over with contributions from Farhaan Behardien (20), Justin Ontong (22) before Albie Morkel came in for the final three balls of the innings, which he dispatched for consecutive boundaries. (ANI)
