2nd T20I, South Africa vs Australia: David Warner, Glenn Maxwell blitz help visitors chase down mammoth 204 runs

Australia won the second T20I against South Africa being held at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg by five wickets to level the 3-match series at 1-1.


South Africa 204/7 (20/20 overs) 

Faf du Plessis starred for the hosts with a brilliant innings of 79 runs.

Australia 206/5 (20/20 overs) 

Warner and Maxwell smashed 77 and 75 runs respectively.


Australia broke their losing streak of five matches and scripted a famous victory. The Aussies were languishing at 32/3, before the duo of Warner and Maxwell added 161 runs to seal a thriller. James Faulkner hit the winning runs as the visitors needed two off the last ball.


South Africa chased down Australia's target by three wickets in the first T20I. Therefore it is a must win scenario for Steve Smith's side, who have lost five matches on the trot. An in-form South Africa will be a huge test given their solid run in this format and recent successes against India and England.

Toss: Australia won the toss and have elected to bowl first.
