Cape Town: Rilee Rossouw hit a century as South Africa went in search of a series whitewash in the fifth and final one-day international against Australia at Newlands on Wednesday. Rossouw made 122 in a South African total of 327 for eight.



He and fellow left-hander JP Duminy (73) transformed the South African innings with a fourth wicket partnership of 178 after the hosts lost their first three wickets for 52 runs.


South Africa went into the contest seeking to become the first team to defeat Australia in every game of a five-match one-day series.

Australia's bowlers made a good start after South Africa won the toss, with Scott Boland having Quinton de Kock caught at cover and Joe Mennie bowling both Hashim Amla and South African captain Faf du Plessis.
