full bunger in the blockhole, White chops it away to midwicket, it's not taken cleanly and he's off, charging through for the winning run - Australia win by two wickets with one last itty-bitty ball to spare!
11.20pm: Think that's it from the Sydney Olympic Stadium, we had a few snatched quotes from the players to win gongs. Thanks for your comments, as ever, we'll be back for more white-ball high jinks when the one-dayers begin on Friday. If you haven't already had enough, you can follow India's chase against Sri Lanka - they've been set 243 to win the series in Hyderabad - or pick up a different rhythm with Pakistan's batsmen in the Abu Dhabi Test. From me, for now, it's goodbye and good luck. Ta ra
Man of the Match is that man, the man, Cameron White: "Got a little bit twitchy there. It was set up by the bowlers, chasing 140 should be pretty comfortable most times, we got there in the end. I thought we bowled really well at the back end, used the conditions well and pressured them after a good start. It's nice to be making runs, that's my job, so hopefully keep doing it."
James Faulkner is named Man of the Series: "To say the least, it was very tense. I've been in that position before, stuffed it up - it was nerve-wracking, Cam played really well. He's pure class and good to see him perform. [Boyce, Cummins progress] I've been impressed with him showcasing his skills in T20 and it's exciting to see a legspinner doing well. Pat Cummins as well, bowling fast and taking wickets. We're ready for the summer, hopefully go well over the next few months, both personally and the team."
11pm: Well, that was the sort of finish we were after, a zinger of a T20 that see-sawed back and forth throughout. Australia take the series 2-1 and they have the cool head and steady of hands of Cameron White to thank. South Africa fought for the whole nine yards but really paid for stumbling through the second half of their innings, when they were 61 for 5. Glenn Maxwell should go and have a chat with White about how to finish a run chase, by the way... But no harm done in the end, the teams can now move on and prepare for five ODIs in the next two weeks.
pitched up outside off, Boyce drives behind square, into the ground but straight to the fielder, White calls him through - would have been out with a direct hit but Peterson's throw misses! Scores are level
Cameron Boyce is the new man, just needs to get off strike
slips in the yorker, Abbott, S is hit on the boot and Abbott, K has the wicket! Up goes the finger, gets the decision even if it looked a touch leg side... Australia are eight down and still need two to win
full and wide and Abbott has a swing and a miss
Abbott to Abbott... Two required
pitched up, White plays away from his body, gets an inside edge on to pad, looked for a moment like he had played on
So, three required, Kyle Abbott to bowl. He needs to channel Maxwell from the Pakistan ODI a few weeks ago...
goes for the full bunger, Abbott swings hard - and smacks a bump ball back into his partner White, actually hit him on the neck as he tried to duck. More importantly, it was a dot ball
back of a length, White nudges one more to deep midwicket
dug in, at the batsman, pulled into the ground for a comfortable single
short again, not a bad ball... but superbly played, ramping four fine of third man! The delivery was right over the top of the stumps but Abbott did terrifically well to use the pace and flick it to the rope, past the diving fielder
back of a length, this is quick, 144kph and searing through outside off as Abbott swings the bat wildly
over the wicket, on a length, White closes the face and calmly tucks one through square leg
Cover your eyes, Myron... Parnell has been asked to bowl the penultimate over. Australia only need 10 off 12
"Hmm, think this T20 series was useful for SA prep for the WC," says Myron. "Abbott in, Farhaan, Parnell and De Lange out. Peterson, Wiese, Rilee and Reeza earned themselves backup spots. I've still questions about Miller - quality player, but like Parnell doesn't deliver consistently."
slightly back of a length outside off, draws his bat inside the line
slower ball, Abbott has a swish and misses - but it was just outside the tramline
fullish, on off stump, Abbott leans out and prods back watchfully to mid-on
Sean Abbott can bat a bit... Test of nerve as well as technique
got him, Wiese snaffles a leading edge! That's what South Africa need, dot balls won't win it for them, Wiese has his third wicket, he's been bowling with canny changes of pace, Cummins tried to work it to leg and only succeeded in popping the ball back to the bowler
short, maybe a cutter, Cummins toe ends a pull into the ground and Wiese hares after it
angled in and worked to leg, midwicket keeps Cummins on strike
fullish, around off stump, White happy to push down the ground and trust his partner
"Does Peter's comment prove Robert's point?" wonders Phillip. David Wiese is back on, could be a key over, this'un
short delivery, Cummins swings a lollipop pull in the air through square leg, no one is there and they take an easy two
"Duminy would have done himself a favour by rolling his arm instead of tossing it all the time to the out-of-sorts Parnell," oberves Talha
full length, tailing in on the stumps, White clips another single to long-on
