Potchefstroom, South Africa: Former captain Graeme Smith hit a century to set up a consolation one-wicket win for South Africa in the third and final one-day international against New Zealand at Senwes Park on Friday.

Smith made 116 in 130 balls - his 10th one-day century laced with 14 fours - but it needed a six off the last ball by all-rounder Ryan McLaren to enable South Africa to chase down a New Zealand total of 260 for nine.

Smith was sixth man out when 32 were still needed off 26 balls.
