BLOEMFONTEIN - Lance Klusener struck his fourth test century in a startling return to form to help South Africa to a decent first-innings lead on day three of the first test against India on Monday. Resuming 327 for three in their first innings overnight, South Africa were dismissed for 563 after tea, a lead of 184, with Klusener the ninth out for 108. The total was South Africa's highest ever against India, passing the 529 for seven declared in Cape Town in 1996-1997. Left-handed Klusener reached his hundred with a pull through midwicket off Anil Kumble after tea, having taken a little over three hours to get there, facing 117 balls and hitting 18 fours. ends
