Superstars Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry have produced batting pyrotechnics on Sunday to help Australia take a 2-0 lead in their five-match women's one-day international cricket series against South Africa.

Australia made 4-278 from their 50 overs after Lanning won the toss at Manuka Oval.

Lanning smashed 134 off 122 balls, notching her ninth ODI ton.

Perry followed up her innings of 93 in Friday's first game win with an unbeaten 95 off 129 balls, eclipsing her previous highest ODI score from two days earlier.

South Africa's chase was stalled by a rain delay with the visitors at 3-56 off 18.4 overs,.

After play resumed they advanced to 5-119 in the 32nd over before another bout of rain ended the game.

South African opener Sune Luus followed up her 52 in the opening match with an unbeaten 60.

Four Australian bowlers picked up a wicket each with the other one earned by a run out.

The series continues on Wednesday with a day-night match at North Sydney Oval.
