Australia beats South Africa to end losing streak

Australia's only ODI victory in 2018 came in Adelaide

Australia's only ODI victory in 2018 came in Adelaide

During the course of the Australian innings, Reeza Hendricks took a wonder-catch to dismiss danger-man Marcus Stoinis, who could have added crucial runs to the hosts' total during the end of their innings.

South Africa's spearhead Kagiso Rabada could find himself facing another ban after giving Australian batsman Chris Lynn an apparent send-off in the second ODI between the two nations in Adelaide on Friday.

The one-off T20I against South Africa is slated for November 17 at Queensland's Carrara Oval while the three-match series against India will commence on November 21 in Brisbane.

South Africa sputtered to 224/9 in reply with Faf du Plessis's 47 and David Miller's 51 their only scores of more than 19.

"We can build on this".

"The way we defended was outstanding, The bowlers were relentless", said Finch.

Dave Miller (51) top-scored for the Proteas before falling lbw to Stoinis following a smart review by Finch. With the stupendous triumph, they kept their hopes alive in the series with one match remaining to be played at Bellerive Oval on Sunday.

But the Highveld Lions all-rounder didn't let the side down - with the ball - matching Phehlukwayo's haul of three wickets, thereby keeping a tight rein on the Australia scoring rate.

Finch built a composed 41 before he was deceived by a Pretorius delivery and chopped the ball onto his wicket.

In fact, their last win came in Adelaide nine months ago against England, before the reigning world champions were knocked for six by the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa in March.

Lungi Ngidi struck first blood with Travis Head's wicket after which skipper Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh got the home team back into the match with a stand of 54 runs.

Following the pattern set by those ahead of him in the order, Carey battled his way to 47 and then misjudged the bounce on a length delivery from Rabada, guiding an edge through to de Kock for his fourth catch behind the stumps. Pacer Peter Siddle, who was named as cover for Starc in the recent overseas T20I series against Pakistan, has also been dropped while the other frontline quicks - Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins - continue to be left out too, despite being fit, according to an International Cricket Council (ICC) release.

Next ball, attempting to hook a searing bouncer, Lynn edged behind and momentum stalled.

Aiden Markram and Reeza Hendricks were looking unsafe as they pushed the score to 46, but they needlessly attempted a third run from a clip off the pads to midwicket and Markham was run out.
