Although the visiting team (Bangladesh) had put their best foot forward by opting to bat first and registering a good score of 278, the Proteas were definitely on top of the game with the opening partnership chasing the score with seamless ease by registering 282 not-out by the end of the match.

However, what wowed cricket fans all over the world was how the South African openers – Hashim Amla and Quinton De Cock – broke numerous records in stamping such a wonderful victory.



Amla – who scored his 26th ODI century – completed his century in just 154 innings, which went past Virat Kohli’s record of achieving 26 centuries in 166 innings.

It is to be noted that this is the second time that Amla has broken Kohli’s record. The South African opener became the fastest cricketer to reach 7000 runs in just 150 innings, breaking Kohli’s record of accomplishing it in 169 innings.

Amla, who is also a former captain of the South African team, also holds the record for being the fastest to reach 6000, 5000, 4000, 3000 and 2000 runs, achieving the landmarks in just 123, 101, 81, 57 and 40 innings respectively.

Not just personal records were set and broken in this match but the duo also overtook the iconic opening pair of Graeme Smith and Herschelle Gibbs, by becoming scorers of highest opening wicket partnership.
