Bulawayo: Quinton de Kock touched an ODI record as South Africa beat Zimbabwe by 61 runs on Tuesday to take an unassailable 2-0 lead and wrap up the three-match series.
The 21-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman scored 38 to equal the mark of England’s Jonathan Trott in reaching the landmark of 1,000 runs in only 21 one-day matches.
Faf du Plessis top-scored with 55 as South Africa were bowled out for 257 in 49.4 overs after being put in to bat. It was only the third time in 34 ODI meetings that Zimbabwe had bowled out South Africa.
Captain AB de Villiers was involved in a bizarre dismissal.
