12:19 pm on 31 March 2012

South Africa defeated India by 11 runs at home in a one-off Twenty20 international at the Wanderers this morning on the Duckworth/Lewis method after their batsmen had plundered 219 for four.

India raced to 71 for one from 7.5 overs when the rain came with the visitors behind the Duckworth/Lewis target.

Jacques Kallis struck 61 and man-of-the-match Colin Ingram hit 78 in the South Africa innings.

Gautam Gambhir lashed 49 not out off 28 balls as India made a bright start in reply before the weather thwarted their victory charge.
