DURBAN, South Africa (AP) _ Jonty Rhodes and Jacques Kallis combined for a 183-run fifth wicket partnership Friday to lead South Africa to 280 for four in a one-day match against Pakistan.

In the first match of a one-day triangular series against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the home side batted first and set an imposing target.

Rhodes, 94 not out, and Kallis, 109 not out, both survived close calls in setting the South African record for a one-day, fifth-wicket total. The previous record of 131 was held by Rhodes and captain Hansie Cronje.

With South Africa struggling at 48 for three and then 97 for four, Rhodes and Kallis adopted an aggressive style that brought 16 boundaries between them _ eight each _ and two sixes for Rhodes.

Kallis became the first South African to knock a century at Kingsmead in Durban, reaching the 100-mark in just 106 balls.

Rhodes avoided an early departure when he was caught off the second delivery he faced, but it was ruled a no ball, allowing him to continue.

The pair toyed with Pakistani strike bowler Waqar Younis, who yielded 73 runs in his 10 overs. Wasim Akram was two for 39 in 10 overs to lead the Pakistan attack.

South Africa started poorly with opener Gary Kirsten caught at slip on the fourth ball bowled by Akram. Fellow opener Mike Rindel, joined by Darryl Cullinan, pounded 17 runs until he edged a Younis delivery to wicketkeeper Moin Khan.

Cullinan fell after 16 runs off an Akram delivery caught at second slip by Mohammed Wasim, leaving South Africa at 48 for three after 10.2 overs. Cronje pounded 34 runs until he was run out on a direct hit of the stumps by Younis, and then Kallis and Rhodes took over.

With Kallis at 45 and South Africa at 137 for four, Ijaz Ahmed dropped him at cover point. Kallis and Rhodes needed just 113 balls to put up 100 runs.
