Both AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis scored impressive centuries against Australia in the second One-Day International (ODI) of the triangular series in Zimbabwe. South Africa were reeling at 51 for the loss of two wickets, but du Plessis and De Villiers combined to bring South Africa back into the game.

Quinton de Kock was caught by James Faulkner off a Mitchell Starc delivery in the ninth over. Hashim Amla was dismissed by Kane Richardson in the eighth over. It was a short ball from Kane Richardson, he cut the ball straight towards the backward point where Steve Smith took a good low catch. The umpire had asked Amla to wait in order to check whether the catch was taken properly or not. Eventually, Amla was given out. Catch the full scorecard of the match here
