South Africa will take on Australia in the second T20 International of the three match series at Melbourne. The visitors are already 1-0 ahead in the series. For the Aussies this is a must win encounter. The Proteas will also feature in a five match One-day International (ODI) series on this tour. This tour is a preparatory series for them before the World Cup. Catch live scorecard and ball-by-ball updates of the match.

Glen Maxwell is set to return to the squad. For the Aussies this is nothing short of terrific. Maxwell is known for his fearsome hitting, especially in this format. In addition his more than useful bowling will be handy. The now-famous double-wicket maiden over against Pakistan in the recently-concluded One-Day series he should take inspiration from. Aaron Finch‘s boys need to perform better in this crucial game.

For the tourists they would look to continue in the same vein. Their usual ruthlessness was on show on Wednesday. Quinton de Kock and Rilee Roussaw should look to carry off from they left. If they lose early wickets the trusted JP Duminy is always there. One man who could play a crucial role is dynamic southpaw David Miller.  The southpaw can clear boundaries with nonchalance, if he can get going the Aussies are going to have their work cut out.
