A brilliant unbeaten 115 from Mark Waugh led Australia to a crushing seven-wicket victory over South Africa in the second of seven one-day internationals, in Port Elizabeth yesterday.

Waugh's 10th one-day century levelled the series and gave Australia a much-needed boost after 13 defeats in their last 19 one-day matches.
