That's all done and dusted! Proteas have made it into the finals. South Africa won by large margin and outplayed Australians. Rabada was the standout performer bagging six crucial wickets. On the other side Australia have played their heart out but failed at the last step. No wonder its Kagiso Rabada has been adjudged Man of the Match for his hostile pace.

So it will be Pakistan taking on South Africa in the grand finals at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Tshepiso: "Well bowled Rabada, well played South Africa. No choking, all smiles!"
