After losing Hashim Amla (5) early, the rest of the Proteas batsman all contributed with De Villiers, Quinton de Kock (45) and Faf du Plessis (41) starring. 

De Villiers, who came in at the fall of the second wicket, struck his runs off just 29 deliveries, including 4x4 and 5x6's. 

JP Duminy (29*) and David Miller (19) ensured the Proteas passed 200 for the second time in the tournament. 

The Proteas made one change to the team that lost to England on Friday with David Wiese replacing Dale Steyn.
