The all-pace attack made no difference whatsoever as South Africa comfortably chased down the target with six wickets to spare.Off-field ructions engendered by the Longstaff review haven't helped Australia's cause either.

At 187/8, South Africa's score matched that of Australia's at the fall of the eighth wicket, but the last two wickets proved out to be difference between the two sides eventually as South Africa failed to match the 44 runs that the Australian final two wickets had added and were restricted to 224/9, thereby ending Australia's seven-match losing streak in ODIs.

Australia's ODI captain Aaron Finch admitted that the upheaval has been on his mind, with the World Cup champions following a series loss against Pakistan with a lopsided opening loss to South Africa.

The Queenslander had smacked 18 runs from four consecutive Rabada balls - a six followed by three fours - but was out next ball.

Marcus Stoinis was the pick with 3-35 off his 10 overs, including the crucial scalp of David Miller who hit a stubborn 51.

Proteas paceman Dwaine Pretorius took 3-32 from 10 overs while Kagiso Rabada (3-53) and Dale Steyn (2-31) also claimed multiple wickets. That brought Shaun Marsh to the crease and he quickly got into his groove. South Africa tour of Australia 2018 Schedule and Results.

Australia innings 231- Aaron Finch 41, Chris Lynn 44, Alex Carey 47; Kagiso Rabada 4-54, Dwaine Pretorius 3-32. Josh Hazlewood sent Hendricks packing in just the following over, with a ball that the opener just couldn't keep from edging. The South Africans slipped to 4-68 inside 15 overs before David Miller (51 from 71 balls) and captain Faf du Plessis rallied.

Du Plessis and Miller were doing a commendable job of absorbing the pressure placed upon them when - against the run of play - du Plessis chopped a short ball from Pat Cummins onto his own stumps to fall for 47.

The Adelaide Oval holds many fond memories for Du Plessis, memories that have shaped him into the leader and cricketer he is today.

"But it's hard for me to comment, it's because I'm a South African, I'm not Australian".
