5. Quinton De Kock’s batting belligerence helps South Africa canter towards Australia’s impressive total at Centurion:
Australia got off to an enterprising start as David Warner and Aaron Finch took the attack to the South African bowlers. The game changed when both openers departed as the 20-year-old debutant Andile Phehlukwayo rallied the others to end up with 4 for 44 and keep the visitors’ score under 300.
The second half was all about Quinton de Kock and his batting master-class as he slayed every bowler in his path to score yet another ton. He kept going at a frightening pace and amassed 178 off 113 balls while chasing down the target of 295.
In his innings, he struck six fours and 11 sixes as Australian bowlers were reduced to a rubble much to joy of South African fans around the Supersports Park, witnessing their home side winning the game in a space of 37 overs.
