Cape Town - JP Duminy has marked his return to the Proteas fold with a brilliant century against the Netherlands in Amstelveen on Friday.

The Cobras ace, who has been sidelined for the past seven months with an Achilles injury, scored a mammoth 150 not out off off 119 balls as the Proteas posted 341 for three in their ICC Champions Trophy warm-up clash.

The innings, which included four fours and eight sixes, is Duminy's highest ever score in one-day international cricket, eclipsing the 129 he scored against Zimbabwe in Benoni in 2010.

Full scorecard

Colin Ingram (82 off 106 balls) and Faf du Plessis (62 off 43 balls) were the other main contributors after skipper AB de Villiers won the toss and elected to bat.

After this game, the Proteas also play a warm-up game against Pakistan at London's Oval on Monday.

They start their Champions Trophy campaign against India in Cardiff on June 6. Their other group stage opponents are Pakistan (June 10, Birmingham) and West Indies (June 14, Cardiff).
