Morris and Shamsi impress as South Africa extend Australia's misery

A torrential downpour on the Gold Coast dampened the mood before South Africa inflicted Australia's third loss in four matches

South Africa win by 21 runs and take this T10 match to follow the one-day series. Didn't look like we'd get a game at one stage. South Africa raced out of the blocks with the bat, got pulled back somewhat, but were again very good with the ball. Particularly noteworthy were the performances of Morris and Shamsi in their first outings of the tour.

Aaron Finch "They got off to a great start with the bat, maybe few too many runs. Chasing 110 everything has to go right. You need boundaries early and it just didn't happen. Those first few overs we let them get away a touch. The boys are still positive. We are moving in the right direction, some great improvements at training. We'll be ready to go again Wednesday. An exciting time for Australian cricket, keep the faith and we'll turn it around quickly."

Faf du Plessis "Bowlers once again stepped up. Produced the goods. There's a lot of slogging, so nice to pick up wickets. A good tour for us. We learned a few lessons from their bowling attack, made sure we got our field placings right. Australia is a really tough place to come and play cricket. To get a series win is always a huge achievement so we'll go back with our heads high."

Tabraiz Shamsi is Man of the match "Glad we got over the line. Always special playing against Australia. We weren't going to take it easy before flying home tomorrow."

We'll wrap things up for there for today. The three-match T20 series against India starts in Brisbane on Wednesday. Join us for those, but until then it's goodbye.

Ngidi to Maxwell, OUT

a big full toss is clubbed down to long-on, the umpires say it's fine for height so it all ends with a wicket

heaved out to deep midwicket

9.4
Ngidi to Coulter-Nile, no run

nearly cleans him up as he swings to leg against a length delivery

Vaughan: "Can only be a dead ball if the bowler accidentally drops the ball before delivery. Clearly in the motion of completing the action, and pretty difficult to drop a ball all the way to point. Should have been a no ball."

9.3
Ngidi to Coulter-Nile, no run

a full ball is speared between leg stump and the pads as he swings to leg

9.3

Ngidi to Coulter-Nile, 1 wide

short outside off, he's not too impressed with that wide call

Ngidi to Maxwell, 1 run

full outside off, drilled down the ground

9.1

Ngidi to Maxwell, SIX runs

that's sweetly struck, stands much stiller, it's a length delivery and it's lofted well over long-on

One over to go. 31 needed.

another short one, makes a connection this time and pulls to fine leg off the glove

Rabada to Maxwell, 1 wide

a shorter delivery, moves across outside off stump, misses the pull but gets the wide call

8.3
Rabada to Maxwell, no run

and now the follow-up is a dot as he moves outside leg, swings and misses

Called deal ball as this flies out of Rabada's grip and ends up at backward point. Had he completed his action

Outstanding stuff from Morris...24 off four overs between him and Shamsi. Terrific

7.6
1
Morris to Maxwell, 1 run

it's all happening! Goes for the yorker, it's a low full toss which is driven to mid-off, almost carries for the catch, du Plessis collects on the half volley and goes for the run out by NCN makes it with a dive

7.6
1w
Morris to Maxwell, 1 wide

tries for the yorker, just gets it wrong and slips down the leg side

7.5
Morris to Maxwell, no run

this is superb from Morris, follows him with a short ball which Maxwell tries to ramp down to third man. Crowd want the wide, as does Maxwell. Probably a fair shout, actually

Alexander Czarn: "Australia missed a trick not playing a specialist spinner, also someone like Agar's batting would be useful down the order; very street smart T20 cricketer"

7.4
Morris to Maxwell, no run

another dot ball, this time a swing to leg against a short-of-a-length delivery

7.3
Morris to Maxwell, no run

full outside off, a slower ball, he's through the shot...perhaps moving around the crease too much

Sooryanarayanan: "I just wonder if India will contemplate playing all three of Kuldeep, Chahal and Krunal in the T20s."

7.2
2
Morris to Maxwell, 2 runs

back of a length, follows Maxwell, carved over point. Keeps the strike
