New Zealand – Hashim Amla smashed his fourth one-day century of the year as South Africa put its World Cup credentials on display today, beating New Zealand by 72 runs in the second one-day cricket international to take a winning 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Amla scored 119 – his 16th one-day international century – to lead South Africa to 282-9 after losing the toss. South Africa’s potent pace attack wrecked New Zealand’s top order, leaving the hosts reeling on 5-69 by the 20th over before eventually bowling the side for 210 in 46.3 overs.

Captain AB de Villiers estimated that the Proteas played at 65% of their potential in winning the first match on Tuesday by six wickets and demanded improvement. His batsmen and bowlers delivered it today.
