Phew, what a game. Australia win by five wickets, to end a run of five defeats. And it was a superb chase of a big total, even more so after that early problems when they were three down. Warner and Maxwell added 161 for the fourth wicket before their dismissals gave South Africa hope at the very end. Some of the home side's bowling, though, struggled today. Wiese and Tahir went for 105 in their eight overs, although credit to Australia for the way they were targeted. Steyn had an issue with full tosses on his return (but he wasn't the only one) and Rabada did not have quite enough to defend in the final over. It all means we have a deciding match in Cape Town on Wednesday before the teams head off to the World T20. Sorry I couldn't use much of your feedback towards the end, it all got a bit hectic. I'm afraid I won't hear the post-match interviews, so we'll have to leave it there. But we'll have all the reaction later. Meanwhile, if you want to continue your cricket fix the Asia Cup final is now underway as a 15-over affair in Mirpur so head over and join our colleagues for that. For now, though, from Andrew McGlashan and Alan Gardner it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.

Rabada to Marsh, 2 runs
he bunts it straight down the ground and Australia win! It was a good delivery, full and straight, but Marsh managed to hit it into the pitch, past Rababa and neither long off or long on could stop the second.

Two to win. One for a Super over. Fielders running everywhere. Would SA take a Super over?

Rabada to Faulkner, 1 run
swings to leg against a length ball, gets an inside edge into his pads and it runs into the off side
Rabada to Faulkner, 2 runs
it's a good ball, full at the stumps, but he gets it straight down the ground...bisects long on and long off, then the return from the deep has very little power on the throw. Marsh was struggling to make his ground, the ball took an age to get back from the deep. Goes to the third umpire but he's just safe. A costly weak throw

5 off 3

Rabada to Faulkner, 2 runs
gets this full and straight, driven through the covers to the sweeper and they can't cut off the second...wasn't a very good return from the deep
Rabada to Faulkner, 1 wide
swing and a miss! Called wide again! That seems a harsh call. Looked inside the white guideline to me. Actually, on the replay, that was over the white guideline, so fair call from the umpire

8 off 4 needed
