SOUTH Africa won Jacques Kallis' last Test to take the series against India with a 10-wicket victory on the final day at Kingsmead.

South African openers Alviro Petersen and Graeme Smith comfortably chased down their victory target of 58 on Monday without loss in the home team's second innings to claim the short two-game series 1-0.

Top-ranked South Africa powered toward victory over No.2 India early on the final day when Dale Steyn struck off the first ball and the Proteas' bowlers took eight Indian second-innings wickets for 155.

Steyn and fellow fast bowler Vernon Philander finished with three wickets each and left-arm spinner Robin Peterson had 4-74.

Only Ajinkya Rahane resisted among India's batsmen to make 96 before falling four short of a maiden test century.
