BBC Online :
South Africa secured a 2-1 series victory over India with a seven-wicket win in the third Test in Cape Town on Friday.
Keegan Petersen, who top-scored with 72 in the Proteas' first innings, hit 82 as they completed a chase of 212 on day four at Newlands.
The target had been set up by India's Rishabh Pant, whose entertaining 100 not out on Thursday underpinned India's second-innings 198.
The teams will play a three-match one-day series starting on Wednesday.
It is only the fourth time in history India have lost a series after winning the first Test.
Petersen fell with 57 needed, but Rassie van der Dussen, who made an unbeaten 41, and Temba Bavuma, with 32 not out, guided South Africa home.
Petersen's fluent innings spanned only 113 balls before he was bowled by Shardul Thakur.
