In the second ODI, Australia batted first and they posted a total of 392 for 8 in 50 overs. The start was brilliant as both Travis Head and David Warner struck the ball cleanly. They added 109 runs for the first wicket partnership. Travis Head was dismissed after scoring 64 runs while David Warner scored useful 106 runs. Marnus Labuschagne also played brilliantly. He is certainly pressing his case for a World Cup pick. He smashed 124 runs in 99 balls to help Australia get past the 390 run mark and finish at 392 in 50 overs of play.
During the chase, Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma gave an ideal start to South Africa. They added 81 runs for the first wicket partnership. Temba Bavuma scored 46 off 40 balls while Quinton de Kock made 45 off just 30 balls. After their dismissals, South Africa slipped into a mess. They kept losing wickets in regular succession and couldn't really keep up with the asking rate. Heinrich Klaasen tried to give them a chance with his knock of 49 runs in 36 balls but the task was way too tall. South Africa were eventually bowled out for 269, losing the match by 123 runs. For Australia, Adam Zampa picked up 4 wickets for 48 runs.
