  • Outstanding bowlers help Australia snap losing streak

The bowling attacks slugged it out as batsmen on either side struggled to build on their starts, with four men reaching the 40s but none able to play the decisive innings.

Australia ended a seven-match losing streak in one-day internationals with a seven-run win over South Africa at the Adelaide Oval on Friday to even the three-match series.

Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen and Dwaine Pretorius were all guilty of gifting their wickets to the Australians, three of them with poor shots, and in Markram's case, another awful piece of running which saw him short of his ground after he'd made 19. Australia were bowled out an over and a half shy of their 50 overs for 231, and South Africa fell short despite David Miller's fifty.

The hosts, who were thrashed by six wickets with more than 20 overs to spare in the opening match of the three-game series in Perth, are seeking to stop the rot after an unparalleled seven defeats in a row.

The South Africans slipped to 68 for 4 inside 15 overs before Miller and du Plessis fought back.

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said: "good teams should close that (score) down".

There will be plenty of introspection in the South African camp in the next 48 hours as the players contemplate a series of soft dismissals which handed an Australian side lacking confidence a much-needed win.

Skipper Aaron Finch stressed beforehand the need to go back to basics and build partnerships, and he and Travis Head tried to set the tone after being sent into bat by Faf du Plessis.

Australia's innings slowed as Imran Tahir tied Lynn and Carey down with a tight, wicket-to-wicket line, and with singles hard to come by, Lynn banked on his boundary-hitting ability to keep the score ticking over.

Finch did neither one thing nor the other, and chopped a delivery from Pretorius on to his stumps after scoring 41.

The explosive Chris Lynn looked ominous and was in Twenty20 mode when he smacked 18 off the first four balls from a Rabada over before he pushed his luck too far on the fifth, mistiming a hook to be caught behind.

The procession continued as Glenn Maxwell flashed a cut off Pretorius through to de Kock, Stoinis heaved across the line to present Hendricks with a stinging chance at midwicket, and Cummins and Starc were both beaten for pace by Steyn.

Following the pattern set by those ahead of him in the order, Carey battled his way to 47 and then misjudged the bounce on a length delivery from Rabada, guiding an edge through to de Kock for his fourth catch behind the stumps.

But Adam Zampa (22) took a liking to Lungi Ngidi as the home side scraped together vital runs.
