2nd ODI: Rabada, Pretorius share seven to bowl Australia out for 231

2nd ODI: Rabada, Pretorius share seven to bowl Australia out for 231”

"We can build on this", said Stoinis, who took 3-35 and ran out Aiden Markram for 19 with brilliant fielding.

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.

Thrashed by six wickets in the opener in Perth on Sunday, the win came after another gloomy week for cricket in Australia, where the fall-out from a culture review into the Cape Town ball-tampering scandal caused ructions off the field.

Proteas paceman Rabada picked up 4-54, Dwaine Pretorius took 3-32 and Dale Steyn bowled superbly for his 2-31 from 10 overs.

Australia's Marcus Stoinis appeals for a wicket during the second ODI against South Africa at the Adelaide Oval.

But Head's aggressiveness cost him and he was trapped him lbw for eight. The South Africa captain's departure started a slide of 5-60.

Aaron Finch's dismissal - playing on to Dwaine Pretorius - triggered a slide for Australia. Alex Carey's lone fight also ended just after he'd taken the team past the 200-run mark, after which Adam Zampa and Josh Hazlewood dragged the team with the further addition of 27 runs - which at the conclusion of the fixture appear like gold dust. A poor decision to scramble across for a third run after Hendricks played one towards midwicket brought an end to their alliance, sending Markram back despite his desperate diving effort to make his ground. With 4 wickets down for only 68 runs, the visitors were in all sorts of trouble.

"That's a tough pill to swallow", Du Plessis said of the loss. They put the chase on pace with a game-high 74-run partnership before du Plessis (47 from 65 balls) hit his stumps from Cummins' bowling.

But just as the South Africans were pushing for victory, the game twisted once again when Hazlewood's short ball got big on Pretorius, who lobbed a simple catch to Lynn and was dismissed for 14.

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