CENTURION, South Africa (AP) – Hashim Amla and Rilee Rossouw both smashed centuries as South Africa reached 361 for five after the fifth and final One-Day International cricket match against the West Indies was reduced to 42 overs per side on Wednesday.

Amla hit 133 from 105 balls and Rossouw scored 132 in 98 deliveries as they put on 247 together – a record third-wicket stand for South Africa.

While the pair began in fairly benign fashion, taking South Africa to 154 for two after 28 overs, they cut loose thereafter as they added 152 runs in the next 63 balls.

Andre Russell and Jason Holder took all five wickets to fall but conceded 162 runs in the 17 overs they bowled.

Summarised scores: South Africa 361-5 in 42 overs (Hashim Amla 133, Rilee Rossouw 132; Andre Russell 3-85, Jason Holder 2-77). West Indies need 362 runs to win from 42 overs.
