Bulawayo: A scintillating 84 from 75 balls by opener Quinton de Kock led South Africa to a seven-wicket win over Zimbabwe on Thursday and a 3-0 whitewash in the one-day international series. (Scorecard)

Spurred on by De Kock, South Africa needed just 27.2 overs to reach 171-3 and easily chase down Zimbabwe's 165 all out at Queens Sports Club.

De Kock plundered seven fours and two sixes and appeared to be racing to a sixth century of his young career when he smashed a catch straight to Sean Williams with South Africa 22 short of the target.

JP Duminy finished the game with a six to end 28 not out as the Proteas cruised a fourth success in Zimbabwe after also winning the one-off test. Stand-in captain Faf du Plessis made 40.
