Stunning batting show from centurions Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers took South Africa to a 34-run win over Pakistan in the third one-day international. The South African pair set a massive third-wicket partnership of 238 as the hosts scored 343 for five to set Pakistan an impressive target which, in spite of thrilling 88 from Shahid Afridi, they fell short of on 309 all out.

It was a batting master class from Amla and De Villiers with an array of both conventional and daring shots to excitement at the Wanderers and strikes the previous record of 237 set by India against Kenya in 1999. Amla, who in the second over had an lbw decision against him upturned on review, was caught by Misbah-ul-Haq on 122 while captain de Villiers made 128 before skying one to the deep that Shoaib Malik did well to catch off Saeed Ajmal.
