CENTURION - Hashim Amla and Rilee Rossouw both hit centuries for the second time in the series as South Africa punished a lacklustre West Indian bowling attack in the fifth and final one-day international at SuperSport Park on Wednesday.

Amla made 133 and Rossouw powered his way to 132 in a South African total of 361 for five in an innings reduced to 42 overs because of rain. The pair equalled their South African record for any wicket by putting on 247 for the third wicket. They set the mark with a first wicket stand in the second match in Johannesburg when both also hit hundreds and provided a platform for AB de Villiers to hit the fastest century in one-day international history.

De Villiers was rested for Wednesday's game, along with all four of South Africa's first-choice specialist bowlers. West Indies captain Jason Holder sent South Africa in to bat and initially it seemed a good move as the batsmen struggled to time the ball on a pitch which had spent most of the day under the covers as steady drizzle delayed the start by two-and-a-half hours.

Amla took his total for the series to 412 for twice out, scoring his 133 runs off 105 balls with 11 fours and six sixes. The left-handed Rossouw took 60 balls to reach his fifty but then cut loose, needing only another 23 balls to post his second international century and only 15 more before he was caught on the boundary off Andre Russell after an innings which included nine fours and eight sixes. Russell took three wickets but conceded 85 runs in eight overs, including 28 in one over during the batting power play.  Russell sent down three no-balls and five wides, two of which were out of reach of wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin and went to the boundary.
