DURBAN, South Africa (AP) David Warner and captain Steve Smith made centuries to take Australia to an imposing 371-6 in the third one-day international against South Africa on Wednesday.

Trailing 2-0 and fighting to keep the five-game series alive, top-ranked Australia responded with its fifth-highest score in ODIs, led by opener Warner's aggressive 117 from just 107 balls.

Warner was part of a 110-run opening stand with Aaron Finch (53) and then put on 124 with Smith, who made 108. Travis Head added the finishing touches to the innings with 35 from 18 deliveries at the end. Australia's score was the highest ODI total at Kingsmead.

Imran Tahir and Dale Steyn took two wickets each, but Steyn conceded 96 runs in his 10 overs, the most by a South African bowler in a one-dayer.
