Southampton: Hashim Amla inflicted another record-breaking hundred upon England as South Africa won the second one-day international (ODI) by 80 runs in Southampton on Tuesday.

Amla's 150 saw him become the fastest player to 3,000 ODI runs as he reached the landmark in just his 57th innings compared to the 69 it took West Indies great Vivian Richards.

It was also the highest individual score in ODI matches between South Africa and England, and the cornerstone of the Proteas' 287 for five, made after captain AB de Villiers won the toss.
