Mitchell Starc spell sets up Australian win
Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc exposed a tough Australian bowling presentation and place up a secure six-wicket victory against South Africa in the final Twenty20 international match at Super Sport Park on March 14. South Africa resisted to 128 for seven wickets after being sent in. Aaron Finch smack 39 runs and Shane Watson 35 as Australia traveled to win with five overs to remain.

South African skipper Faf du Plessis confessed South Africa were always in mess after hobbling to 34 for two in the six power play overs spell.
Du Plessis said that,“It’s important to get a good start in the power play. We lost too many wickets and it’s always difficult to recover.”
Australia conquered the series 2-0, with the initial game rained off, and will tour to the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh as one of the preferred for the contest.
