The win helped Australia end its 7-match losing streak, which was their longest in one-day global cricket. But Cummins opened the door for Australia once again when he bowled one on the fourth-fifth stump line and du Plessis chopped it on to his stumps.
It is often said to never change a winning combination, but the captain admits the limited opportunities in a three-match series could warrant a few tweaks to scout as many players as possible.
But a lionhearted performance by Stoinis and the Australian pacemen ensured victory despite some belligerent hitting from South Africa's lower order.
In fact, their last win came in Adelaide nine months ago against England, before the reigning world champions were knocked for six by the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa in March.

At 187/8, South Africa's score matched that of Australia's at the fall of the eighth wicket, but the last two wickets proved out to be difference between the two sides eventually as South Africa failed to match the 44 runs that the Australian final two wickets had added and were restricted to 224/9, thereby ending Australia's seven-match losing streak in ODIs.
"I thought we had it under control", Morris said. "We only needed four-and-a-half an over. We knew we had to bowl them out to win, we just had to keep rolling the dice". "We lost wickets up front, we needed one more batter to come up", du Plessis said.
But Australia's batting woes remain: they were all out for 231 in 48.3 overs - the seventh time in their past eight one-day internationals they couldn't bat their allotted overs. Among the Proteas bowlers, Kagiso Rabada picked up four wickets for 54 runs, while Dwaine Pretorius made several breakthroughs, picking up three for 32 in 10 overs.
Australia will need to defend a total of 231 to avoid an eighth straight loss after South Africa dismissed them inside 50 overs with pacer Kagiso Rabada finishing with 4 for 54.
Stoinis crushed those hopes with a fiery spell, bowling Dale Steyn for three before trapping Miller lbw for 51.
