Rassie van der Dussen’s century helped South Africa spoil Ben Stokes’s farewell to one-day international cricket as the Proteas won by 62 runs on the England star’s Durham home ground to go 1-0 up in a three-match series.

Van der Dussen’s career-best 134 was the cornerstone of South Africa’s 335-5, their highest ODI total in England, and he also shared stands of 109 with opener Janneman Malan (57) and 151 with Aiden Markram, who made a stylish 77.

Test captain Stokes did not have a fairytale finish to a 50-over international cricket career that peaked with a player of the match display in England’s 2019 World Cup final triumph.
