South Africa set India a target of 208 in the opening cricket Test after being bowled out for a paltry 130 in their second innings at Newlands here on Monday. Resuming from Saturday's total of 65/2 as the third day's play was completely washed out, the hosts failed to get going and could only manage to add 65 runs before losing the final eight wickets.
