Debutant Ingram's century sinks Zimbabwe

October 16, 2010 09:06 IST

Colin Ingram became first South African to score a century on his one-day international debut as the hosts beat Zimbabwe by 64 runs on Friday.

Ingram, 25, batted at number three in place of the injured Jacques Kallis and scored a well-paced 124 runs from 126 deliveries as South Africa piled up 351-6 in their 50 overs in the first ODI.

Opener Brendan Taylor did his best to keep Zimbabweans in the game with a spirited 145 not out from 136 balls but the gulf in class between the teams was always evident as they finished on 287-6.

Opener Hashim Amla laid the foundations for the win with a swashbuckling knock of 110 from only 96 balls, including 14 boundaries.

David Miller finished things off in style for the home side with a carefree 51 from 31 deliveries containing, five fours and two sixes.

Fast bowler Shingirai Masakadza summed up the Zimbabweans' day with a career best, if expensive, haul of four for 86.
