Australia v South Africa

Australia v South Africa

The fun was South Africa slamming 174 runs in their last 90 balls, with Miller and du Plessis notching up big hundreds and giving their side 320 runs to defend.

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis and David Miller not only steadied the team's innings against Australia in the third and final ODI but went on to shatter a South African one-day worldwide record on Sunday.

The Proteas put in their most complete performance of the series, and finally clicked with both bat and ball for their first series win in Australia since 2008-09.

Dale Steyn took 3-45 in his 10 overs, including Lynn's wicket, in what is expected to be his last appearance in Australia in the one-day format.

On November 11, 2011, during the first Test between South Africa and Australia at Cape Town.

The batting though was disappointing in the second game when they failed to chase down an average score though Faf du Plessis will be confident of a good show in the final game.

Australian captain Aaron Finch didn't have a problem with the review, claiming South Africa used the review in the allotted time. "After 35 overs we were in a great position but they took it away at the end".

Their record stand is also the highest in Australia-South Africa matches, surpassing the 222-run partnership between Steve Waugh and Michael Bevan way back in the year 2000.

The drop in prices came after the USA said it would allow eight countries, including India, to continue importing crude from Iran. While benchmark Brent crude is trading below $70 a barrel, the West Texas Intermediate dropped below $60 a barrel.

Yesterday he was back there, with that very same charming Cheshire grin, basking once more in the success of his team after South Africa completed a monumental one-day worldwide series victory over the arch-enemy.

Mitchell Starc did the damage, bowling a ideal line and length, with de Kock getting a tickle on the ball and wicket-keeper Carey taking the catch.

South Africa scored 75 runs in the final five overs.

The Proteas have a sorry history in World Cup tournaments but if they face Australia in a knockout game in England next June, du Plessis has declared his bowlers won't be losing sleep. Throughout the day several sixes were hit. But the nature in such chases, when you continuously need 10-11-plus an over, when you get a wicket then it becomes hard again.

BOWLING: Starc 10-1-57-2 (2w); Hazlewood 10-1-53-1 (1w); Cummins 10-2-67-0 (2w); Stoinis 7-0-70-2; Zampa 6-0-32-0; Maxwell 7-0-38-0 (1w).

Stoinis successfully reviewed after being given out leg before when he got an inside edge on a delivery from Markram, but fell to Dwaine Pretorius (2-61) in the next over.

UMPIRES: P. Wilson (Australia) and Aleem Dar (Pakistan). Miller followed him with an upper cut to the third man boundary the very next over and a more ebullient showing of emotion, vindicating his promotion to No. 5 in the order.
