South Africa Levels the Series against Australia.

South African bowlers players became the winning factor for their team as they won the second T-2o after a huge defeat in the First game against Australia.

The first hitter David Warner reached an undefeated 67 for Australia, but it was not enough since South Africa defended a modest total of 158 for four to win by 12 runs and level the three-game series.

Australia lost three wickets for eight runs in the last 2.1 overs to finish at 146 for six. It was its first T20 defeat in nine games since November 2018.

South Africa’s captain, Quinton de Kock, was named the man of the game after he hit 70 of 47 balls for the home team to start hard while recovering from a record defeat of 107 runs in the first game in Johannesburg on Friday.

He hit two six in the second round, knocked down by Pat Cummins, at 50 runs of 31 balls.

Warner, Aaron Finch and Steve Smith made Australia a similar fast start, but both teams found it increasingly difficult to score on a slow pitch with little rebound when the ball lost its shine and hardness.

South Africa scored 59 runs without a wicket in the power play of six overs and Australia responded with 54 for one.

Warner and Smith, both are on their first tour of South Africa since serving a one-year ban on ball manipulation, kept Australia in the goal before Smith was caught by a Faf du Plessis in mid-29 with a total of 98 in 13th over.

The fast bowlers, Lungi Ngidi, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, took a wicket and threw the last blows in a tense ending, with Warner unable to get enough blow to cross his line.

The final match of the series takes place on Wednesday in Newlands in Cape Town, the scene of the ball manipulation scandal that led to bans on Smith and Warner.
