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

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."
