SA make light work of Australia in first ODI

Fans mock SA spinner Tahir during practice match

Fans mock SA spinner Tahir during practice match

Steyn took 2-18 off seven overs in his first global match on Australian soil in two years since breaking his shoulder to be named man of the match.

Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and elected to field.

Travis Head and D'Arcy Short gave Proteas spearhead Dale Steyn a flawless return to Australia by edging flat-footed heaves in the third over of the match.

Finch did not even call for the DRS after being given out lbw to Lungi Ngidi, a decision by veteran umpire Aleem Dar that would have been overruled on height had it been referred. I don't think they bowled as well as they potentially could have.

No. 5 Alex Carey was eighth out for 33‚ an innings 71 balls in the making‚ and Coulter-Nile clipped his 34 off 31.

It was Ngidi who got the final wicket of Coulter-Nile in the 39th over, Australia were all out for 152 to ensure the Aussies rough ride since the ball tampering fallout continued.

The Proteas experimented with a strong bowling attack and it paid handsome dividends, not it was up to the six batsmen to do their bit.

The two nations face off for the first time since Australian cricket was brought to its knees during the dramatic Test series in South Africa earlier this year.

Drake Accuses a Vancouver Casino of Racial Profiling #Drake
Following Drake's post, Parq Vancouver's website was flooded with negative comments, with one user saying, "It's 2018 not 1945". In an Instagram post, he called the Madison Club "the most offensive place I have ever stayed at in my life".

They managed to navigate their way to 28 without loss before the dinner break with de Kock, as you would expect, the aggressor while Hendricks was more circumspect but treated the crowd to some cracking off side play.

Aiden Markram joined Hendricks at the crease, with Amla out injured but nearly certain to board the plane to the World Cup, it was Hendricks and Markram auditioning for a possible number three spot vacancy.

However, Finch admits there are self doubts, especially when players head to the middle in the midst of a batting collapse, which have been a regular feature for much of the past year.

Despite losing Hendricks soon after, Aidan Markram made a fluent 36 off 32 balls before Miller hit the winning two runs off his first ball.

The Australians were put in to bat on a lively pitch and dismissed for 152‚ their lowest total of 2018‚ in 38.1 overs and South Africa replied with 153/4 to win with 20.4 overs remaining.

The tourists lost three late wickets before eventually sealing a six-wicket victory and the Proteas captain said they could have been more clinical.

Steyn was forgiving when asked after Sunday's win to assess Australia's inept batting display.

At the conclusion of one of the worst months in Australian cricket history, with the team demolished by Pakistan in the longest and shortest formats before Cricket Australia chairman David Peever fell on his sword amid the fallout of the scathing cultural review, the start of the home summer offered the chance for redemption.
