Australia rest Starc, Lyon for South Africa, India T20s

Australia v South Africa: Home fans fall in love with Marcus Stoinis' - the game-changer Outstanding bowlers help Australia snap losing streak

Lynn obliged, but ended up gloving the excellent bouncer to de Kock for a run-a-ball 44.

Earlier, Chris Lynn's blistering run a ball 44, a measured 47 of 72 from wicket-keeper batsman Alex Carey and 41 runs at the top of the innings from captain Aaron Finch helped the home side to an eventual defendable total of 232 all out.

The hosts, who were thrashed by six wickets with more than 20 overs to spare in the opening match of the three-game series in Perth, are seeking to stop the rot after an unparalleled seven defeats in a row.

Marcus Stoinis was the pick with 3-35 off his 10 overs, including the crucial scalp of David Miller who hit a stubborn 51.

South Africa, seeking a win to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, put the brakes on just as Australia appeared set to accelerate.

Dwaine Pretorius finished with 3 for 32 from 10 overs.

But Head's aggressiveness cost him and he was trapped him lbw for eight.

The Brazilian was lively and probably Spurs' most creative player during his time on the pitch. It's hard to push [them to the top] but when they are there, they try to keep them up there.

Pace spearhead Mitchell Starc, veteran spinner Nathan Lyon and all-rounder Mitch Marsh were all left out of Australia's Twenty20 squad Thursday to play South Africa and India.

Aaron Finch's dismissal - playing on to Dwaine Pretorius - triggered a slide for Australia.

In reply, South Africa lost de Kock as Starc struck early for Australia in the fifth over, as a flick from the left-hander landed in the hands of Zampa at fine leg. Reeza Hendricks and Aiden Markram (19) then carried out good recovery work, adding 28 runs for the second wicket. Josh Hazlewood sent Hendricks packing in just the following over, with a ball that the opener just couldn't keep from edging.

At 48/3 South Africa looked to be in trouble and when Stoinis got Heinrich Klaasen caught by Lynn at short mid-wicket, the visitors slipped further into trouble at 68/4.

With the Proteas on 68-4, it was up to Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis and David Miller to save their side from humiliation.

"Obviously from a results point of view, there is a bit of pressure on their batting line-up to score runs", du Plessis said.

But Pat Cummins made the all important breakthrough and removed the South African captain to come back again into the game.
