In the first T20I, Australia batted first and they posted a huge total of 226 for 6 in 20 overs. Travis Head got out early on. Post his dismissal, Mitchell Marsh and Matthew Short put on a show and accumulated lot of runs in the powerplay overs. Marsh continued to go on and scored 92. A real match winning knock was played by Tim David who scored 64 off just 28 balls to help Australia get past the 200 run mark to finish at 226 in 20 overs of play.
During the chase, Marcus Stoinis got rid off Temba Bavuma in the first over itself. After his dismissal, Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground. They fully utilised the powerplay overs. Once this partnership was broken, it was followed by the big wicket of Aiden Markram and the middle order simply fell like a pack of cards. Reeza Hendricks scored 56 runs but couldn't do much to avoid a possible defeat. South Africa were eventually bowled out for 115, losing the match by 111 runs.
