Cricket: Record score.
After the tourists restricted the Proteas to 192 for five at tea thanks in part to three wickets from Shakib Al Hasan, sixth-wicket pairing Prince and Boucher combined for 223 runs to push South Africa's total to 357.
The duo's efforts set a new Proteas record for a sixth-wicket partnership, eclipsing the previous mark of 200 set by Graeme Pollock and Tiger Lance 39 years ago.
Prince's majestic 115 included 16 fours and a six, while wicketkeeper-batsman Boucher added 102 as the Proteas established a first-innings lead of 107 heading into the third day.
