MAN-OF-THE-MATCH

The best player accolade has gone to South Africa's Rilee Rossouw, for scoring a match-winning 78 off 50 balls.

05 Nov 13:52

A comfortable victory for South Africa!

Rilee Rossouw (78 off 50 balls) made the most of the drop chance afforded to him, but he will take huge confidence from this performance, while Quinton de Kock (46 off 39 balls) just continues to grow from strength to strength.

Kyle Abbott was also sublime with the ball, claiming 3/21 off 4 overs. Perhaps he and Rossouw should share the man-of-the-match award...
