Proteas in the Tri-series finals against Australia
South Africa beat Zimbabwe by 63 runs on Thursday in the Triangular one-day series at the Harare Sports Club in Harare, Zimbabwe, which has booked the Proteas a place in the finals against Australia on Saturday.
Faf Du Plessis managed to get his third century in just four games, bringing the Proteas score to 271 for six, Zimbabwe scored 208 all out, after JP Duminy took three of their wickets.
Du Plessis, SA’s Number 3 batsman, was the best batsman for South Africa, hitting three sixes in four balls. He made his first century last week Wednesday in the game against Australia, following it up with 126 in the second game against Australia on Tuesday and added his third century of 121 on Thursday’s game against Zimbabwe.
"It's certainly the best form he's shown at international level, but I've always known that he's capable of doing that so it's great to see him coming through at a crucial time leading up to a big World Cup," South Africa captain AB de Villiers said.
"It's great to have our No. 3 spot cemented down now by a guy in great form and with a great cricket brain."
South Africa will face Australia for the finals of the Triangular one-day series at the Harare Sports Club in Zimbabwe on Saturday at 9:30am.
