At Durban, October 5, 2016. South Africa won by four wickets. Toss: Australia.
Miller was on 26 in the 31st over of South Africa's daunting chase when he tweaked his groin. Five balls later, Duminy - the only other specialist batsman left - fell to Hastings, the target still 155 away. Already under severe pressure after being dropped from the tour of the Caribbean in June, Miller finished with an extraordinary unbeaten 118 from 79 balls; because of his injury, it would be his last contribution to the series. He shared an unbroken 107 in 70 with Phehlukwayo, who completed the chase - the second-highest in ODIs - in the last over, with a fearless reverse sweep off Zampa. With the series on the line, Australia's senior batsmen had stood up: Warner and Smith scored a century each, before a late charge produced 65 off the last five overs.

Steyn's ten overs leaked 96, the most by a South African; Rabada's figures were barely healthier. The reply began with atypical aggression from Amla, who had returned to the top of the order, and familiar belligerence from de Kock. A score of 140 for one soon became 179 for four, but Miller's magic secured South Africa's first one-day bilateral series win over Australia since early 2009.
Man of the Match: D. A. Miller
