Not only did he break the record, Amla also managed to clock his highest ODI score by smashing 159 off just 128 balls at a strike rate of 124.21. He was assisted by Faf Du Plessis, who managed a run-a-ball 109. Their partnership stood for 247 runs, allowing South Africa to reach a total of 411/4.

Amla has now reached a total of 5616 runs at an average of 55.68, whereas Kohli averages at 52.17 with a total of 6418 runs. Kohli is ahead by 2 centuries as of now, but Amla is definitely catching up.

Thankfully for Kohli, at 26, he still has a long career in front of him unlike Amla, who is already 31.
