PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) -- Quinton de Kock became the fifth batsman to hit three centuries in three one-day internationals as South Africa romped to another strong total in the third and final match of its series against India.

De Kock followed up his 135 and 106 in the first two games by hitting 101, while AB de Villiers hammered 109 as South Africa posted 301-8 at Centurion on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old De Kock's innings made him the first wicketkeeper to achieve the feat of three tons in as many games, and also gave him the record for most runs in a three-match bilateral series.

Although India put its hosts under early pressure as Ishant Sharma (4-40) reduced it to 28-3, De Kock and De Villiers added 171 for the fourth wicket.
