Chasing easy target is not easy
Did you watch yesterday how the Indians played? Compare that to the first match in Hyderabad. In Hyderabad, suspense and tension till the end, with average asking rate being one run per ball. In Bangalore, by the half of the innings you know India needs 2 or 3 runs per over! Indian bowlers (spinners on a turning wicket) got the Africans out within a modest target.
South Africans started out well, first ten overs being rather tight and agressive. I remembered Clive Loyd placing five slips when Andy Roberts was at his peak, that created extra pressure to the Indians. Apparently Indians still depend on spinners. Agarkar's last over impressed me though.
Dravid failed to score a ton in Bangalore, but his team chased an easy target and won.
