That innings propelled the South African total to 321/2 in fifty overs. Along with him, Hansie Cronje scored a brisk 57 runs, followed by quick 41 by Daryll Cullinan.
That total was going to be a big ask for the UAE side. As expected they could not offer any fight against the mighty Proteas, and could only score 152/8 in their allotted 50 overs. Allan Donald and Brian McMillan picked three wickets each to rattle the UAE side.
It was only in 2015 that Kirsten's record was broken in 2015, by Kiwi batsman Martin Guptill when he scored 237 against West Indies.
