South Africa vs Australia - Highlights & Stats

Faf du Plessis South Africa vs Australia - Highlights & Stats

In the match, the Proteas defeated the Aussies in a thrilling encounter by 12 runs to level up the three-match series 1-1.

Cape Town - Quinton de Kock led his Proteas from the front and his quicks got their death bowling act together as they beat Australia by 12 runs in the second T20 global match at St. George's Park, Port Elizabeth, on Sunday.

Needing nine runs off the final over, Mignon du Preez was the hero with a six off the fourth last ball from Katherine Brunt before then hitting the winning runs with a boundary.

"You've got 24 balls to bowl and the first over doesn't determine whether you've won or lost the game". It capped an impressive performance from South Africa after Van Niekerk's decision to bowl was vindicated when her accurate attack restricted England to 123 for eight off their 20 overs.

Australia needed 20 from the final 12 balls and when Kagiso Rabada's penultimate over went for only three, they were firmly on the back foot and never recovered momentum. "It gets more hard towards the end so we were trying to capitalise on the powerplay".

"I thought we were in the hunt for most of the chase".

My jaw dropped after seeing that insane effort! . In the fifth ball of the over, to break the 16-ball boundary drought, Marsh lifted the ball straight down the ground. Then in the final over, with newcomer Pite van Biljon trying to do his best to push South Africa over 160, Smith was fielding in the deep on the off side and the ball was smoked towards him. However, Steve Smith left everyone awestruck as he perfectly times his jump at the fence to get hold of the ball and throw it back in as he landed on the boundary line.

But it was the South Africans who saved a six with the most success, with some team-work to end Mitchell Marsh's innings.

Warner and Smith, both on their first tour of South Africa since serving a one-year ban for ball-tampering, kept Australia on target before Smith was caught by a diving Faf du Plessis at mid-on for 29 with the total on 98 in the 13th over. He's done only just enough with doing anything spectacular, - scoring 85 runs off 65 balls across his last five innings - but Wednesday maybe an important opportunity to remind everyone of his prowess.

The two sides now go to Newlands on Wednesday for the series decider with the teams locked at 1-1. However, in a similar fashion to de Kock, his 50 came off 38 balls and he was only able to add 17 more runs off the next 18 balls he faced.
