South Africa set 302-run target for India

Centurion, Dec 11: Quinton de Kock struck his third consecutive ODI century while skipper AB de Villiers got his 16th as South Africa piled up a competitive 301 for eight in 50 overs against India in the third — and now inconsequential — ODI at the Super Sports Park here Wednesday.

De Kock made 101 while De Villiers got his 109 off 101 balls. David Miller also struck a quickfire unbeaten 56 off 34 balls.

Ishant Sharma was the pick of the Indian bowlers with four for 40 while Mohammed Shami bagged three for 69.

The South Africans enjoy an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
