FOUR! Mitchell Starc to David Miller. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Full bunger, Miller comes forward, and cracks it through the infield to seal the victory!South Africa have timed their chase to absolute perfection. A superb performance with bat and ball from the hosts today. Janneman Malan will take the headlines for his fantastic unbeaten century, and deservedly so. Lungi Ngidi shouldn't go unnoticed with his six wicket haul earlier in the day either. Australia once again not up to their usual best, and that means that South Africa go 2-0 up with one to play.Join us again on Saturday for the third and final game of the series. Can the hosts whitewash the Aussies? Or will the away side get a consolation victory?
