Cricket: Record score.

CRICKET: Ashwell Prince and Mark Boucher hit unbeaten centuries as South Africa rallied from a slow start to take command on day two of the Second Test against Bangladesh in Centurion.

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.
