India declare in 2nd innings after Rahane ton

Sun, Dec 06, 2015, 12:41 PM
New Delhi, Dec 6: Ajinkya Rahane completed his second century in the match as India declared their second innings at 267/5 and South Africa made 5/1 in their second stint at lunch on Day Four of the fourth and final cricket Test against South Africa at the Ferozeshah Kotla here on Sunday.

Rahane remained unbeaten on 100 with eight boundaries and three sixes. The Mumbai lad, who had scored 127 in the first innings, thus notched up back to back centuries in the same Test for the fifth ton of his career.

Rahane is the fifth Indian batsman to achieve the feat. The others who earned the distinction earlier were Vijay Hazare, Sunil Gavaskar (thrice each), Rahul Dravid (twice) and current skipper Virat Kohli (once).

Wriddhiman Saha was unbeaten on 23 at the other end.

India built up a lead of 480 runs when the declaration came. The Proteas trailed by 475 runs at lunch with opener Temba Bavuma and Hashim Amla at the crease.
