After bundling the home side out for 198, the tourists had seemingly put themselves in a good position to level the three-match series. But an erratic pitch turned out to be a huge factor as Proteas bowler Dale Steyn, who scored his maiden ODI half-century, completed his man-of-the-match performance with a two-wicket haul.
