Proteas smash Zimbabwe

8:53 am on 23 October 2010

The South African cricketers have thrashed Zimbabwe in the third and final one-day international in Benoni.

JP Duminy and AB de Villiers hit centuries as South Africa's batsmen went on the rampage in the 272-run win, hammering 399 for six before bowling out Zimbabwe for 127 to seal the series 3-0.

It was the second biggest winning runs margin in one-day international history, exceeded only by New Zealand's 290-run win against Ireland in Aberdeen in 2008.
