South Africa recorded their first ever victory over Australia after defeating them by six wickets in the second T20I in Canberra. The Proteas’ bowlers restricted Australia to a below-par total of 142 for 6, which they successfully chased down with six balls to spare thanks to captain Laura Wolvaardt’s unbeaten half-century. This win marked the first time South Africa has beaten Australia in women’s cricket, leveling the multi-format series after Australia’s victory in the opening contest. Wolvaardt and Tazmin Brits set the stage for the historic win by adding 75 runs for the first wicket. Despite a mini-collapse in the middle overs, Wolvaardt’s composed half-century ensured South Africa’s victory. Additionally, Australia struggled to find momentum with the bat, with only a few players making meaningful contributions. Overall, the Proteas’ all-round performance, including effective bowling and composed batting, secured their memorable win over Australia.
