Johannesburg - Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers hit centuries as South Africa and India fought out an epic draw in the first Test at the Wanderers on Sunday.

With Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni forced to set defensive fields, De Villiers was bowled with 56 runs required in 13.5 overs, attempting to run the ball down to third man but edging it into his stumps.

The world record for a successful run chase is 418 for seven by West Indies against Australia in St John's in 2002/03.
