Jacques Kallis and Morne Morkel stood out as South Africa scored a convincing 80-run win in the second one-day international against Australia at St George's Park on Sunday. The win levelled the three-match series at one-all.



Kallis hit 76 in a South African total of 303 for six and Morkel bowled with pace and accuracy to take four for 22 as Australia were bowled out for 223 in reply.

Kallis became the third batsman, after India's Sachin Tendulkar and Australia's Ricky Ponting, to reach fifty on 100 occasions in ODIs.

After losing the match Australia captain Michael Clarke admitted that the better side won. "We were outplayed,"  said Clarke.

"They showed us how to bat on a slow wicket and they executed well with the ball," Clarke added. South Africa Captain Hashim Amla credited his batsmen for series-levelling win. "Our batting set us up.

We showed what we are capable of," Amla said.
