Scorecard

It was an uphill struggle for Australia from then on and although keeper Alex Carey 33 and Nathan Coulter-Nile 34 briefly got going, Australia were bowled out for 152; Andile Phehlukwayo 3-33 the pick of the South African bowlers in later stages with Imran Tahir picking up 2 wickets as well.

In reply, Quinton de Kock 47 and Reeza Hendricks 44 got South Africa off to a solid start and despite a late burst of 3-16 from Marcus Stoinis, South Africa cruised home by 6 wickets.
