Career-best for Amla as SA win

ENGLAND must be sick of the sight of Hashim Amla.

The South African had already made made scores of 311 not out and 121 in the recent Test series before thumping a career-best 150 in the Proteas' total of 287-5 in the second ODI at Southampton's Ageas Bowl yesterday.

But just like the five-day game, Amla was helped by poor English fielding as he was dropped twice.

England was bowled out for 207 to relinquish top spot in the International Cricket Council one-day rankings to their opponents.

South Africa is now the No.1 side in all three forms of the game.

England captain Alistair Cook said bad fielding cost his team.

"You cannot afford to give good players two or three chances," Cook said after the game.
