GraemeSmith49

Jacques Kallis ended his Test career a winner as South Africa beat India by 10 wickets to take the best-of-two series 1-0 in Durban.

Kallis also marked his final Test appearance for South Africa with a century, as the world's number one side claimed a dominant win after the first Test in Johannesburg ended in a draw.

Alviro Pietersen and captain Graeme Smith were the unbeaten batsman as the home side wrapped up the win in the final session of day five after claiming the eight wickets they needed to set up the victory push.

Pietersen was unbeaten on 31 and Smith made 27 as the home side made 59 without loss to celebrate Kallis' retirement in style.

Kallis's final Test

Kallis had announced on Christmas Day the match with India would be his final one and responded with a century as the hosts hit 500 in reply to India's 334.

A fine morning with the ball set up South Africa's victory charge and, when the tourists were dismissed for 223 in the afternoon session, it left South Africa in sight of victory.
