For his 40-ball 77, David Warner is the Man of the Match.
...
Wow, just WOW. What a game of cricket. They say flat tracks aren't a great advertisment for cricket but those who say that need only to watch this match. Fantastic batting from both teams and in the end, it was the team that didn't wither under pressure that won the game. The wides and no balls from Morris, Rabada and Steyn made the difference in the end as Australia sealed a victory and leveled the series 1-1.
...
Maxwell and Warner's record-breaking partnership set up the win for Australia but spare a thought for the crowd, who witnessed an amazing game of T20. David Miller's misfield reminds one of the one made by Reece Topley who failed to gather the ball in the first T20I with the Proteas needing two to win. Although Faulkner might have still made it in, Miller's failure to gather the ball and that was what cost the Proteas dear.
...
19.6 Rabada to Marsh, 2 runs, good ball and that went over his head to long-on but Miller misfields and Australia are home and the series is level.
