Australia Beats South Africa by 7 Runs to End Worst Losing Streak

ADELAIDE, Australia – Australia beat South Africa by seven runs in the second of the three-match one-day cricket series in Adelaide on Friday, ending a seven-game losing streak – their worst in the format.

Put in to bat first after losing the toss, the home team was bundled out for 231 in 48.3 overs, with Kagiso Rabada and Dwaine Pretorius sharing seven wickets between them.

South Africa was never quite comfortable during what seemed an easy chase for their batsmen, as Australian quicks kept taking wickets at regular intervals.

The visitors eventually played out their entire quota of 50 overs, scoring just 224 for the loss of nine wickets.

“It’s nice. The way we defended was outstanding. The bowlers were relentless. Not sure if it’s relief, justification for some hard work. We held our chances and it went our way,” said Australia’s Aaron Finch, who was adjudged man of the match for his valuable 41 runs off 63 balls and astute captaincy.

South African captain Faf du Plessis admitted that “it’s a tough pill to swallow.”

“The bowlers were brilliant for the most part. I felt we let ourselves down with the bat, very disappointed,” he said.

South Africa won the first match of the series by six wickets in Perth.

Australia’s victory in the second match ensured that the series remains alive with all to play for in the decider on Sunday in Hobart.
