South Africa tour of Australia:Australia Vs South Africa 2nd ODI Live Scores at Perth, Nov 16, 2014
Teams: Australia Vs South Africa
Venu: Played at Western Australia Cricket Association Ground, Perth
Time: Match scheduled to begin at 19:05 local time (08:35 GMT)
Unfortunately for the South Africans, in a strange way the situation might actually strengthen Australia, by creating room for the in-form Steven Smith to slot into the side. South Africa, meanwhile, will have to find a way to turn around their fortunes at the same venue just two days later. Problematically, their batsmen struggled early against the speed of Mitchell Johnson, but AB de Villiers and David Miller showed that the Australians can be worn down if a partnership develops.
If South Africa take their chances in the field - and plenty will be created by Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander, Morne Morkel and Imran Tahir - there is every possibility the teams could leave Perth with the series locked at 1-1.
1.This match will be Hashim Amla's 100th one-day international, and he will be the 19th South African to reach that mark2
2.On Friday, AB de Villiers became the quickest player ever to reach 7000 ODI runs, getting to the milestone in his 166th innings
3.Matthew Wade took five catches in Australia's win in the first ODI, the third time he has managed five in an innings; Brad Haddin has achieved it only twice
