Warne takes six as Australia triumph

Written by: Staff

DURBAN, South Africa, Mar 28 (Reuters) Shane Warne grabbed six wickets to spearhead Australia to an unbeatable 2-0 series victory over South Africa today.

Leg-spinner Warne claimed six for 86 as Australia won the second test by 112 runs.

The visitors won the first match in the three-test series by seven wickets in Cape Town. The final test starts in Johannesburg on Friday.

South Africa, who were set a target of 410, were dismissed for 297 with less than eight overs left in the match.

Mark Boucher fought hard for his undefeated 51.

Warne, who began his first spell unchanged from the 16th over before lunch until an hour after tea, bowled to a field that at times featured a silly mid-off, silly point, two slips, a leg slip and a forward short leg.
