OUT! L.B.W. Mitchell Starc to Kagiso Rabada. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. There it is, Starc snares his third victim of the night and the tourists win by a huge margin. Australia have thrashed South Africa by 97 runs in Cape Town to seal the T20I series 2-1. The Aussies got off to the perfect start thanks to an opening blitz from Aaron Finch (55) and David Warner (57), leaving the Proteas always fighting to drag the match back their way. They did an okay job with cutters and slower balls working well but a late flourish from Steven Smith meant the target was set at an imposing 194. The hopes of the hosts would have been resting on skipper Quinton de Kock, however he was castled by Mitchell Starc in the first over of the response. From there, wickets tumbled regularly and the spinners worked their magic to secure the series trophy for the visitors. It's been a big learning curve for South Africa over the last few weeks, not managing to win when the pressure was on although they will be stronger for the experience no doubt. Australia confirm their position as hot favourites heading into the World Cup at the end of the year, especially as it is on home turf down under.

FOUR! Mitchell Starc to Kagiso Rabada. Half volley, to leg on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Starc misses his line fractionally and Rabada uses the pace to tickle it fine.

OUT! Bowled. Ashton Agar to Lungi Ngidi. Arm length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. Timber, that's a good old fashioned swipe by Ngidi and he gets nowhere near the ball. Agar has two in two and now fancies bagging himself his second hat-trick of the series. What a performance this has been by Australia.
14.2
W
OUT! L.B.W. Ashton Agar to Anrich Nortje. Arm length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, hit pad to. Nortje has delusions of grandeur and attempts a reverse sweep, I'm not sure if he's ever practiced that before because he makes an awful mess of it. Agar fired it in quick and full leaving the umpire with no choice but to raise the finger of doom.

OUT! L.B.W. Mitchell Marsh to Dwaine Pretorius. Leg cutter length ball, off stump moves in front flick, hit pad to. Marsh comes into the attack and makes an immediate impact. Pretorius aims something violent over the legside but gets pinned in front and it's a simple decision for the umpire. The batsman takes a punt on the review but starts walking off before it's even complete, he can see from the big screen that it is as plumb as it gets. A lovely little cutter there by Marsh, rolling his fingers over the ball just a tiny bit.

OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to David Miller. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Finch. Slapped straight to the man, Miller hangs his head because he knows that the game is now pretty much gone. Finch on the other hand is over the moon, the celebrations tell you that Australia believe the series belongs to them. Cummins hasn't been at his best so far tonight but you can never keep him out of the wickets column for too long.

SIX! Pat Cummins to Dwaine Pretorius. Back of a length, outside off stump Deep in crease pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. That's more like it from South Africa, a towering blow sails way back into the crowd. Pretorius got the length he wanted and used his long levers to great effect.

APPEAL! Adam Zampa to Dwaine Pretorius. Slider length ball, middle stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, stumping missed by Carey, appeal made for Stumped. A rare blemish from Australia tonight. Carey should have done better there, a little fumble allowed Pretorius to make it back to safety.
