Australian all-rounder Brad Hodge has come out in praise of his teammates after they clinched a thrilling five-wicket win over South Africa in the second T20I at Durban on Wednesday.

 

The match was curtailed due to rain and was reduced to a seven over affair which provided some thrilling cricket to the spectators present at the ground.

 

David Warner‘s 16-ball 40 and Brad Hodge‘s calm approach helped Australia overpower South Africa‘s 80 in the rain-curtailed second 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 a dream opening pair in T20s of David Warner and Aaron Finch going 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. Despite the outfield protesting to carry anything ahead, Warner went aerial smashing two more boundaries and a six in the over. With 21 in six balls, Australia were well on their way in the T20 match.
