David Warner‘s 16-ball 40 and Brad Hodge‘s calm approach helped Australia overpower South Africa‘s score of 80 in the rain-curtailed second Twenty20 International (T20I) at Durban on Wednesday. The match was reduced to seven overs a side.


After some blitzkrieg from Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis in the first innings, it was over to the dream opening pair in T20Is of David Warner and Aaron Finch to go for the target. Lonwabo Tsotsobe was greeted with a boundary smashed past mid-off by Finch. Tsotsobe was ordinary in his bowling giving away easy runs. Warner even went aerial by smashing two more boundaries and a six in the over. Australia eventually won the game.
