Australia take T20 series 2-1

10 Nov 2014

I (98)

A composed 41 not out from Cameron White has guided Australia to a two-wicket win over South Africa to take out the KFC T20 International Series 2-1 at Stadium Australia.

White's Player of the Match performance included four boundaries and a six, including the winning runs with just one ball to spare.

The match came down to the wire with the hosts needing three off the final over with three wickets in hand, and when Sean Abbott (4) was lbw to Kyle Abbott from the fourth-last delivery, tailender Cameron Boyce was left on strike with two still required.

Boyce got bat to ball from the first delivery he faced, and scampered through for a single, leaving White (41 not out from 31 balls) to follow suit as the pair scrambled the winning run.

Earlier, a three-wicket spell from Player of the Series, James Faulkner helped restrict South Africa to 6/145.
