An all-round dominant display by Australia helped them clinch the series-decider at Newlands by 97 runs, on Wednesday (February 26), against South Africa and seal the series win 2-1.

Opener David Warner (57 off 37) and skipper Aaron Finch (55 off 37) piloted Australia to a commanding 193/5 before leg-spinner Adam Zampa took two stunning outfield catches and registered figures of 2/10 from three overs.

The Proteas never came close to threatening the Aussies, losing captain Quinton de Kock in the very first over — cleaned up again by Mitchell Starc – before capitulating to all out for 96 inside 16 overs.

Brief Scores: Australia 193/5 in 20 overs (David Warner 57, Aaron Finch 55; Tabraiz Shamsi 1-25) beat South Africa 96 in 15.3 overs (Rassie van der Dussen 24, Heinrich Klaasen 22; Ashton Agar 3-16, Mitchell Starc 3-23) by 97 runs.
