Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller shared an unbeaten 139-partnership in a rain-curtailed game in Lucknow. The partnership helped South Africa beat India by 8 runs.

Miller breaks Boucher’s record

4th highest in India

The 139-run partnership is also the fourth-highest partnership against India in India in ODIs. George Bailey and Glenn Maxwell's 153-run partnership in Ranchi in 2013 is on the top of the list.

This is the only 5th wicket partnership for South Africa against India where both batters have scored of over 100.
