Aussie cricketers claim victory

THE Australian cricket side have secured victory in the one-day international series against South Africa at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The home side managed to claim the win by three wickets, with the Proteas achieving 8 for 267.

Steve Smith scored 104 as the Aussies got home with an over to spare.


There was a downside to the win though, with paceman Nathan Coulter-Nile injuring his hamstring.

He was sore after bowling the sixth over and left the field to undergo scans.

The two teams will face-off again at the Sydney Cricket Ground tomorrow.
