Dubai, Oct 23: Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis ensured that Aaron Finch’s 50th T20I as captain for Australia ended on a happy note as they kept their cool to get the team across the line and put two important points in the Group 1 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021

Defending a low score of 119, Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada gave South Africa the early wickets they were looking for, removing Aaron Finch and David Warner inside the Powerplay before Keshav Maharaj scalped the in-form Mitchell Marsh.

The wickets of Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell gave South Africa a glimmer of hope but Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis made sure that Australia got the two points on board, winning the game with two balls to spare.

Earlier, South Africa never managed to recover from their poor start in the Powerplay where they lost three wickets, as they limped to 118/9.
