Shane Watson's brutal display of power-hitting ensured Australia an eight wicket win over South Africa here Sunday and brought them closer to a semifinal spot in the World Twenty20 tournament.
Watson (70 off 47 balls) carried on with the devastating form he showed against India and with help of the experienced Michael Hussey (45 not out), got the team home in 17.4 overs. Earlier, South Africa recovered to make 146 for five after Australia opted to chase in a crucial Super Eight contest at the Premadasa Stadium.In Image: Australia's batsman Shane Watson, right, celebrates scoring a half century as team mate Michael Hussey looks on Text: IANS
