Proteas off to good start against NZ
Hashim Amla once again starred with the bat, scoring 124 off 126 balls.
JOHANNESBURG - The Proteas posted a competitive 304/7 in their allotted 50 overs in the opening ODI of the three match series against New Zealand at Centurion.
Hashim Amla once again starred with the bat, scoring 124 off 126 balls before falling to Adam Milne in the 45th over.
It was Amla's 21st ODI century and formed a large part of the 185 run partnership he put on for the second wicket with Rilee Rossouw, who contributed an impressive 89.
The match saw David Wiese make his ODI debut, and the local favourite scored a quick-fire 14 runs off just eight balls, smashing two sixes in the process.
Milne and Mitchell McClenaghan were the pick of the Kiwi bowlers, with both men grabbing two wickets apiece.
