That ends the coverage of the third and final ODI. Australia continue to hunt for momentum and series wins. Their next assignment will be a one-off T20I against the Proteas at a new venue, the Carrara Oval, in Queensland, on Saturday, November 17, 2018, at 6.20 pm local (0820 GMT). Till then, you can check out some of the action from other areas of the cricketing world. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

South Africa skipper, Faf du Plessis, says he feels good tonight. He feels they played their best game here, They were good with the bat today but they were even better with the ball at the death. Further adds Australia also have a very good bowling line-up but their batters executed their plans well. Mentions short bowling was their plan as the leg side boundary was the bigger one and the bowlers responded well. States they wanted to bat first as they wanted to test themselves under challenging conditions. Ends by saying Hobart is one ground where they have a lot of good memories.

Australia skipper, Aaron Finch, says it is always hard to contain two set batters towards the end. Reckons they did get themselves back into the game but could not finish it. Feels they were in a good position after the 35th over mark. Admits they misexecuted their plans a little and credits the way Faf and Miller played. Appreciates the partnership of Marsh and Stoinis. Ends by saying they were not great in the Powerplay in this series and not even in the middle overs, those are issues they need to resolved.

Man of the Match and Player of the Series, David Miller says, it is always a great feeling to contribute in a team's win. Mentions he wanted to take his time out as the team was in trouble. Further adds Faf and he wanted to play long. Says that he is really enjoying his batting at the moment. Reckons the wicket was a little two-paced but it was till a good one. States anything over 300 is a good total but Marsh and Stoinis' partnership did give them a scare. Ends by crediting their bowlers.

Time now for the presentation. Who will be the Man Of The Match? There will be a Man Of The Series too. Stay tuned....

Rabada says it is never easy coming to Australia but they did well to carry forward the momentum after the series win in Sri Lanka. Reckons du Plessis and Miller kept on going and that turned out to be the difference. Mentions the wicket at first felt it was a little two-paced but once the batters got in, it was good for stroke-making. Credits the way the South African bowlers bowled. Ends by saying they deserved the victory.

When you have a score of 320 to defend, normally the bowlers have a good cushion. But nothing to take away from the Saffas. They bowled really well even on a pitch which did not have much of an assistance. It was a good learning curve for the young guys. Dale Steyn set the tone early and ended up with 3 wickets while Rabada picked up 3 as well, towards the end. Here is KG, for a chat with Brendon Julian.

Shaun Marsh says it was disappointing to not be there till the end. Admits South Africa outplayed them. On being asked whether he was batting with a niggle, he says he was completely fine.

Spare a though for Shaun Marsh. His third ODI century in 2018 - all resulting in losses. He looked fluent right from the word go and had Stoinis stayed there for another 5 overs, Australia might have even pulled it off. Here he is, with Neroli Meadows.

The batting actually did decently. After losing 3 down pretty quickly, one might have expected a collapse but Marsh and Stoinis showed that they were up for a fight, with a 107-run stand. After that too, the batsmen coming in tried and staged a few stands but in the end, it was too much to do.

In these last few months, batting has been an issue for the Aussies but here, it was the bowling which let them down. They started really well but a Miller and Faf masterclass was too much to bear, even for the experienced trio of Starc, Cummins and Hazlewood.

Finally the game ends. After South Africa piled on 320, it was always going to be difficult for Australia and after being 39/3, there was hardly any chance left. Yet another series loss for Australia - their 5th bilateral one in a row and they have not won an ODI series since beating Pakistan at home in 2016-17.
