JOHANNESBURG (AP) " Stand-in captain Faf du Plessis hit 111 to set up another heavy win for South Africa over Australia, this time by 142 runs, in the second one-day international at the Wanderers on Sunday.

Du Plessis was backed up by 82 from JP Duminy and 75 from Rilee Rossouw as South Africa scored 361-6 after being put in to bat by Australia.
