Phil Hughes completed his third One-Day International (ODI) half-century against South Africa at the Harare Sports Club on Wednesday. He is in fine form ever since his campaign with the Australia A squad. The way he played Dale Steyn and Wayne Parnell are signs of him being in good shape and touch. He reached his fifty in  just balls. Catch the full scorecard of the match here

Aaron Finch and Hughes help Australia to a great start in the second ODI of the triangular series against South Africa.Steyn and Parnell opened the proceedings for Proteas but they did not make much of an impact. Hughes looking in prolific touch as he took on the bowlers right from the onset. Finch too looking in good shape.

The Australian batting is in place with the way they hammered Zimbabwe. The presence of Glenn Maxwell in the middle-order gives them the extra boost. Even the pacers fared well but they will have a bigger test ahead bowling to some good quality batsmen. The Proteas have been in good shape winning a series against Sri Lanka away from home. They thrashed Zimbabwe 3-0 in the run-up to this triangular series.
