Andrew Puttick seals the game for Proteas
In response, South Africa started on a stable note with the openers, Morne Van Wyk and Andrew Puttick.
The left-arm spinner Bruce Martin broke the 34-run stand by making Wyk (14) holed out to Redmond. Nevertheless, the seasoned campaigner Alviro Petersen arrived at the crease, which infused positivity to the team.
Puttick once again exhibited his ball-striking abilities to remain unbeaten on 51 off 36, with four fours and three maximums to chase down the total with more than six overs to spare. Petersen was a good support to score 29* off 23 as well.
