South Africa take the series 2-1 in front of 5231 fans after Australia had levelled in Adelaide with a seven-run win in game two.

David Miller and Faf du Plessis plundered big-hitting centuries in a batting masterclass as South Africa beat Australia by 40 runs to win their one-day series and inflict another defeat on Justin Langer's misfiring side.

A police officer stationed at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart took a spectacular running catch during the 3rd ODI between Australia and South Africa on Sunday.

Lungi Ngidi, in particular, Kagiso Rabada and Dale Steyn (3/45) executed their yorkers and slower balls with precision during this period.

This could, though, not take the shine off a glorious victory for the Proteas and skipper Du Plessis, who is now the first Proteas captain to lead South Africa to a Test and ODI series victory in Australia. South Africa easily won the first in Perth by six wickets. Just when Markram appeared to have got his eye in, he became the second batsman, after Hendricks, to be strangled down the leg side as Starc celebrated the fortuitous breakthrough.


Aiden Markram smashed three sixes, including one huge blow off Marcus Stoinis that went out of the ground and down the street, with a new ball needed, on his way to 32. South Africa were also unchanged, retaining the allrounder Dwaine Pretorius at No. 7.

Having lost three early wickets after being sent in by Aaron Finch, du Plessis and Miller provided a model exhibition of how to build a dominant position from modest beginnings, getting well established through steady accumulation before accelerating in brutal fashion in the closing overs of the innings.

Du Plessis was dropped on Faf du Plessis was dropped on 29, but scored his 10th career ton. That brought Miller and du Plessis together, who began a rescue mission.

Miller made the landmark in 95 balls, including eight fours and two sixes, and was finally caught at deep midwicket off Josh Hazlewood in the last over.

Australia's woes were compounded when Aaron Finch soon followed him back to the pavilion. Marsh carried on to accomplish his sixth ODI century with the help of seven boundaries and four hits over the ropes.
