Cape Town - Centuries from AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock helped the Proteas post an imposing 438-4 in the fifth and final one-day international at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. 

After losing Hashim Amla fairly early, de Kock and Du Plessis put on 155 for the second wicket with the young wicket-keeper again revelling in Indian conditions.

Once de Kock fell for 109, Proteas captain AB de Villiers strode to the wicket. He began fairly slowly, but soon both he and Du Plessis accelerated with no Indian bowler able to withstand their onslaught.

Du Plessis was eventually forced to retire with severe cramping but not before he had compiled a hasty 133 off only 115 balls.

AB de Villiers continued to cut loose, bringing up his century off only 57 balls with 3 fours and 9 sixes. He eventually fell for 119 of 61 balls. 

The series currently stands at 2-2.
