Du Plessis: "We are still looking at combinations"

South African captain, Faf du Plessis, has asked for a more clinical performance from his players in the second one-day international (ODI) against Australia taking place at the Adelaide Oval on Friday. The bowlers were almost faultless in the opening match in Perth to dismiss the home team for 152 in 38.1 overs, and it is with the bat that Du Plessis has asked for more ruthlessness and improvement.

It is often said to never change a winning combination, but the captain admits the limited opportunities in a three-match series could warrant a few tweaks to scout as many players as possible. All-rounders, Chris Morris and Dwaine Pretorius are options, while left-arm wrist-spinner, Tabraiz Shamsi, is also a look-in in potentially slow drop-in pitch conditions.

There was no recovery for Australia after Man of the Match Steyn and Ngidi reduced them to 8/3 inside 6 overs. They later slumped to 66/6 in 21 overs as Andile Phehlukwayo (3/33 in 6 overs) also played an important role.
