Fluent knocks from Du Plessis and Dussen take SA to 325/6 in last WC game

MANCHESTER: Skipper Faf Du Plessis hit a fluent 100 and Rassie van der Dussen raised a career-best 95 to steer South Africa to a challenging 325 for six  against Australia in their last league stage World Cup match, here Saturday.

Aiming to sign off on a high, South Africa elected to bat and openers Aiden Markram (34) and Quinton de Kock (52) came out with positive intent.

Du Plessis and Van der Dussen carried forward the good work on a batting friendly pitch with their 151-run stand for the third wicket and in the process, the South African skipper raised his 12th ODI century. (AGENCIES)
