New Delhi:

Australia ripped apart the South African defence to invade the latter's goal net a whopping 12 times. South Africa, on the other hand, failed to open their account in their third match of the Hockey World Cup 2010 in New Delhi.

Luke Doerner found the net five times to help his team thrash South Africa by a record-breaking margin of 12-0.

Australia, thus, put up a record of scoring the most number of goals by a team in a World Cup match. Pakistan had beaten New Zealand 12-3 in Mumbai, 1982.
