South Africa win series after India fall short

5:57 am on 24 January 2011

The South African cricketers have beaten India in the fifth and decisive one-day international at Centurion by 33 runs to take the series 3-2.

Yusuf Pathan's blistering century proved in vain for India as Morne Morkel bagged four wickets and Dale Steyn and Lonwabo Tsotsobe two apiece for the hosts, who dismissed India for 234.

India had been set a Duckworth/Lewis revised target of 268 to win in 46 overs following a rain delay.
