World Cup cricket: Record stand propels South Africa to victory
February 15 , 2015
David Miller and JP Duminy created a new one-day international record putting on 256 for the fifth wicket against Zimbabwe, and helped South Africa win their opening game of the 2015 Cricket World Cup in Hamilton.
After an indifferent start, Miller’s 138 and Duminy’s 115 took the South African total to 339-4.
Zimbabwe managed 277 in reply, falling short by 62 runs. Hamilton Masakadza, at 80, was the top-scorer for Zimbabwe.
