Handed the new ball ahead of Dale Steyn, Morkel took two wickets in his opening spell to plunge the Australian innings into early crisis, then snared three more in six balls in his second spell to help bowl out the home side for 154. Mitchell Marsh top-scored with 67.

South Africa surpassed Australia's total in 27.4 overs, though it struggled at times in the face of hostile bowling from Josh Hazlewood who was twice on a hat trick before finishing with 5-31.

After de Villiers, David Miller steered the Proteas home with an unbeaten 22.
