Twenty20 international (1): Australia 1, South Africa 0
Before the VB Series, the first 20-over international in Australia was held. Having won the inaugural fixture in Auckland, and then been trounced by England at Southampton, Australia now did the trouncing. The format maintained its momentum too: the attendance of 38,894 was a Gabba record for a sporting event - though only for six days, until the VB Series started.
