Australia beats South Africa to end losing streak

Three players hit 40s but failed to stick around and make big scores as Australia were bowled out for 231 in the second one-day global against South Africa in Adelaide.

"While I know all four (Starc, Siddle, Lyon, and Marsh) have a desire to be playing cricket for Australia in every format, with a really tough Test series against India coming up, we believe their best preparation is to go back and get some really good cricket under their belts in the Sheffield Shield", Australia head coach Justin Langer said.

The South Africans slipped to 68 for 4 inside 15 overs before Miller and du Plessis fought back.

Six balls later and Hendricks was also in the clubhouse, getting an outside edge off Josh Hazlewood to give Australia hope.

Proteas captain Faf du Plessis said "good teams should close that (score) down".

That soon became 8 for 187 when Stoinis trapped Miller in front for 51, a review overturning Umpire Michael Gough's original not out decision.

The final match of the series will take place on Sunday at Hobart's Bellerive Oval.

Australia's innings slowed as Imran Tahir tied Lynn and Carey down with a tight, wicket-to-wicket line, and with singles hard to come by, Lynn banked on his boundary-hitting ability to keep the score ticking over.

In fact, their last one-day win came at the oval nine months ago against England, before the reigning world champions were knocked for six by the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa in March and disarray within Cricket Australia.

The West Australian was in the thick of the action during the second ODI against South Africa, creating highlights with his bowling, fielding and even with the bat in hand - even if it was for the wrong reason.

Three batsmen, captain Aaron Finch, Chris Lynn and Alex Carey, got past 40, but one of Finch or Lynn should have gone on to make something more substantial.

However, midway through Australia's innings, there was a bit of an altercation between the 23-year-old fast bowler after the latter had taken 18 runs in four deliveries off the former's sixth over.

His dismissal continued a trend as Australia's batsmen formed a series of handy stands without converting any into imposing totals.

Finch put on 30 runs with Lynn before the skipper departed, chopping a short ball from Pretorius onto his stumps.

Next ball, attempting to hook a searing bouncer, Lynn edged behind and momentum stalled.

Stoinis accounted for the wickets of David Miller who top scored with 51, Henrich Klaasen (14) and Dale Steyn (3) and contributed to the run out of Aiden Markram (19) with his bullet throw from the middle-wicket boundary.
