Du Plessis, Steyn script vistory


Share post:


Harare: Dale Steyn ripped the heart out of Australia’s batting and Faf du Plessis came within a whisker of yet another century as South Africa cruised to a six-wicket victory to clinch the triangular series trophy on Saturday.

As South Africa got the ball reversing midway through the Australian innings, Steyn swung the ball at pace to rip out three quick wickets and record figures of 4 for 35 as Australia were limited to 217 for 9.

Du Plessis then fell four runs short of what would have been his fourth hundred of the series as the Proteas chased down their target in 40.5 overs in front of a packed Harare Sports Club. (AFP)
