South Africa win toss, bowl in second Australia ODI

Australian allrounder Marcus Stoinis has helped engineer a seven-run win against South Africa to snap a one-day cricket losing streak.

The trio of Quinton de Kock (9), Hendricks (16) and Markram (19), failed to accumulate the tiny run total, which eventually proved fatal for their unit.

After throwing away wickets to Andile Phehlukwayo - the lesser pacer operating alongside the high-octane trio of Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Dale Steyn - in Perth, Australia gifted wickets to his replacement in Adelaide, Dwaine Pretorius - who finished with figures of 3 for 32.

Sent in to bat, Australia again laboured against a formidable South African attack and were dismissed for 231 in the 49th over after squandering a number of starts. South Africa paceman Kagiso Rabada picked up 4-54, Dwaine Pretorius took 3-32 and Dale Steyn had 2-31 from 10 overs.

The Australians put in an improved batting performance compared to the first ODI, as Aaron Finch (41), Chris Lynn (44) and Alex Carey (47) scored in the 40s.

And he said things had turned full circle in Australia's line-up since South Africa's 5-0 sweep of a one-day series in September 2016.

Rehana Popal, an immigration specialist in London , said that in two years she had lost six instructions on similar grounds. The wheelchair raised $387,480 (£296,750), nearly 20 times more than pre-auction estimates of up to $19,500 (£15,000).

Marcus Stoinis was the pick with 3-35 off his 10 overs, including the crucial scalp of David Miller who hit a stubborn 51.

Shaun Marsh, brought into the XI for the second game after missing out on the first due to injury, then got together with captain Aaron Finch to add 54 runs for the second wicket.

The fast bowler needed the intervention of one of South Africa's top lawyers - Dali Mpofu - to escape‚ on appeal‚ a ban for a shoulder charge on Steve Smith after he dismissed the then Australia captain during the St George's Park Test in March. 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.

"It's hard for me to comment on that‚" Du Plessis said. But Zampa and Hazlewood resisted to play out the next eight and a half overs.

They looked to be heading towards a narrow victory with du Plessis and David Miller at the crease in a partnership of 74 for the fifth wicket, but Pat Cummins' dismissal of the skipper changed the game.
