South Africa rode a roaring 187-run first-wicket stand and 2 effortless centuries from their openers to a monumental 384 for 6 in the 5th and final ODI against Sri Lanka, eventually gaining the No: 1 ODI ranking.

South Africa thrashed 5 nil at home in this series against Sri Lanka, and this win - an 88-run thumping - was a fitting finish.

The only consolations for Sri Lanka were Asela Gunaratne's hard-earned-but-inconsequential maiden century, as well as having batted 50 overs for the first time in the series.

Player of the match was South African batsman Hashim Amla, and Player of the series was South African Test and T20I captain Faf du Plessis.
