South Africa gave Australia a target of 417 runs.
A shameful record in the name of Adam Zampa.
New Delhi. The fourth match of the ODI series between South Africa and Australia (AUS vs SA) is being played at Centurion. Australia leads the series 2-1, which makes the Proteas thunderous in a do-or-die match. Batting first, South Africa showed an explosive batting style. Meanwhile, Australia’s star spinner Adam Zampa has repeated the history of 22 years ago.
It was a sensible start from South Africa. De Kock and van der Deusen had brilliant innings of 45 and 62 runs. But after this, Henrik Klaasen, who came to bat, created an uproar with the bat. This star batsman showed stars to all Australian bowlers during the day. One of them was Adam Zampa who repeated history 22 years ago. Zampa scored 113 runs in a spell of 10 overs. Something similar was seen in the match between South Africa and Australia in the year 2006.

Before Adam Zampa, Australia’s star bowler Mick Lewis was also defeated for 113 runs in 10 overs in 2006. Meanwhile, the noise of the rivalry between Australia and South Africa echoed around the world. That ODI match saw a total of 872 runs. Adam Zampa has now become the highest run-scorer in ODIs after Mick Lewis.
