South Africa lost Hendricks in the first over of the chase. However, from there, Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw added 129 runs for the second wicket and took their side close to victory. Rilee Rossouw scored 78 on his debut and made his mark on the game. Australia's fielding was poor and they dropped quite a few catches. In the end the deserving team won the game.

!

A well deserved victory for South Africa. They win their first international match of the tour and will hope to carry this form through out the summer. This is South Africa's first win in T20Is against Australia in Australia. They did well to curtail Australia to a total of 144 in the first innings. Kyle Abbott was the pick of the bowlers for them, picking up 3 wickets and giving away just 21 runs in his four overs. Shane Watson and James Faulkner scored 47 and 41 respectively to carry Australia to a respectable total.
