Proteas beat Australia by seven wickets in ODI
South Africa beat Australia by seven wickets in their second One-Day International (ODI) Triangular Series at the Harare Sports club in Zimbabwe on Wednesday.
The batting partnership of captain AB De Villiers and Faf Du Plessis was the game changer, with both getting centuries whilst chasing down 327 to beat Australia.
De Villiers and Du Plessis entered the field with South Africa holding 51 for two. De Villiers hit 136 not out, with Du Plessis hitting a 106, having South Africa end in 328 for three, with 20 balls to spare.
De Villiers was battling through with an injury to his left hamstring. He did however; pull through, limping between the wickets.
"I haven't scored a lot of runs of late so to score a few here is pleasing," Captain De Villiers said.
"I had a lot of chances and luckily I made it count."
"We haven’t chased very well in the past and for us to cross the line like that means a lot to all of us. It’s great confidence for us moving forward.
"It’s important for us to stay in the now; we have a big game coming up against Zimbabwe in two days so our focus is on that.”
South Africa will be facing Zimbabwe for game three of the Tri-Series at the Harare Sports Club, tomorrow (29 August).
