26 January 2018 - the last time Australia won an ODI at the Adelaide Oval. 9th November 2018 - Australia break their 7-match losing streak. Both games happened at the Adelaide Oval. Can Australia build on this win? Or will South Africa show their ruthlessness in the series decider? These two teams have played each other only once at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart - way back in 2009. The Aussies won that by 5 runs. Join us on Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 1.50 pm local (0250 GMT) to find out who wins the series. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
VICTORIOUS AUSTRALIAN CAPTAIN, AARON FINCH HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. This is for scoring an attacking 41 with the bat and then winning the game for Australia with some excellent captaincy. Finch praises his bowlers for being relentless in trying to defend that total. Does not want to put it down to relief but hard work. Wants to justify that by winning in Hobart again. On the bowling plans, Finch says that the bowlers aimed not to give easy runs and make scoring difficult. Admits that he gambled rotating the bowlers and finishing Cummins and Hazlewood early but he has to take some risks as Miller and Faf du Plessis were playing well. Adds further that had he not done that, the game would have dragged on till the 45th over but Australia would have lost. On the flip side, the Aussies might still have lost had the wickets not fallen but then there is no difference whether you lose in the 45th or the 35th over. On Zampa, he is happy that the leggie has gained some confidence back for himself.
South African skipper, Faf du Plessis, says that the defeat tonight is a tough pill to swallow. Feels sad for his bowlers after they did all the hard work. But blames no one from himself as he realizes that he should have taken it deeper. Feels that the wicket was slower and Australian seamers were bowling really well. So the plan was to see off the pacers and attack the spinner but the opposition gambled by keeping the spinner (Zampa) till the end and it paid off for them. Admits that his wicket opened the floodgates but also says that good teams usually chase such scores down. Adds further that 232 was not a score worth winning and the Proteas have let themselves down. On Miller's knock, Faf says that he hoped that Pretorius would take the team over the line with around 80 or 90 to get but now wishes that he does better in the next game. Admits that the team is very much disappointed but these days, there is no time left to rue. They need to get that out of the system quickly and come back fresh on Sunday.
Mitchell Starc now has a chat with Brendon Julian. Says that it is nice to get a win after working so hard. On the bowling, Starc says that the team just kept themselves in the hunt by taking wickets at regular intervals. Praises Cummins and Stoinis for bowling well in the middle overs and taking the wickets of Miller and du Plessis. Admits that there is still some work to do but Australia will take the win. Agrees that he likes to bowl with the new ball and today he bowled with a bit of anger, since he was not given the new ball in the previous game. Feels that he had a good workout and is feeling fitter and better. Time now for the presentation.
Marcus Stoinis says that he is very tired after a really stressful game. On the win, Marcus says that the team can definitely build on this. Admits that it has been a tough 6 months and they can now chill out, cheekily adding, for 1 day. On his celebration, MS says that there is no thinking about it but pure passion to play for Australia. Adds that he loves to have a bit of a sledge with the opposition.
And now, the talk of the town. My colleague KingVic calls him the Hulk. Marcus Stoinis. Out of nowhere, he picked up 3 wickets for just 35 runs. The spotlight was on Starc, Joshua and Patrick but this guy sneaked in and actually bowled well. Klaasen was generous enough to gift him his wicket while Stoinis closed the game with the wicket of Miller. Then dismissed Steyn later on. Here is Marcus, ready for an interview with Neroli Meadows.
As far as Australia are concerned, they will take this win. It is not their problem if the opposition plays poor cricket. Hazlewood and Cummins bowled their hearts out but the rest were purely lucky in getting the wickets. The odd good ball was always there but they will admit that they have gotten away with this one. Starc looked rusty again, but managed to bowl some decent deliveries in between to end with 2 wickets. Hazlewood bowled consistently for his 2-fer while Pat Cummins - wow. Vote for him for the most hard-working Australian cricketer. Whether team wins or loses, gives more than a 100 percent. Here, his 1/27 in 10 overs stifled the Proteas in the middle overs. Adam Zampa was ordinary again and was lucky not to get tonked around because he was being protected till the main batsmen got dismissed.
At 68/4 in the 15th over, the Aussies were well on top but a 74-run stand between skipper Faf du Plessis and David Miller raised the Protea hopes. However, once the captain fell, the Aussies started to close in. David Miller tried to hang around and got a half century as well but could not quite close it out. To sum it up, the Proteas simply messed it up.
To be honest, South Africa will be disappointed on missing out on an opportunity to close the series here itself. 232 was not such a great target and if you see, the defeat margin was not that great. The top order just threw its wickets away, barring Reeza Hendricks and that hurt the team big time.
Relief for Australia. They have broken their 7-match losing streak at a ground where they last won an ODI. But tonight, they have fought hard and have deserved to win, in spite of a poor batting display from both sides. The series is level 1-1 now.

Glenn Maxwell To Imran Tahir
FOUR! It is a boundary but will not matter. AUSTRALIA HAVE WON BY 7 RUNS TO KEEP THE SERIES ALIVE. Full and outside off, Tahir comes down the track and flays it over cover to end the game.

Glenn Maxwell To Lungi Ngidi
That will be it. Unless Maxwell bowls a couple of no balls and gets hit for sixes, the game is dusted. Full and around off, Ngidi swings hard but loses his grip, loses his bat and gets the ball towards deep mid-wicket. The willow is broken off the string and goes towards short mid-wicket. A single is taken and South Africa need 12 from the final ball.

Glenn Maxwell To Imran Tahir
'OHHHHHHHH!' screams Tahir in anguish before Ngidi makes him realize that the game is not over yet. Full and outside off, Imran swings hard but only gets a thick outside edge towards short third man. The batsman thinks that the game is over but if Ngidi can get the next two away over the ropes, it can still be a tie. 13 needed from 2 balls.

FOUR! The game is still alive! Full and wide outside off, Tahir comes down the track, throws his bat at it and gets it behind point for a boundary! 16 needed from 5!
Finch does not have any bowler left who has bowled at least 1 over tonight. Has to go to a new bowler. Glenn Maxwell it is. Can he defend 19?

Mitchell Starc To Kagiso Rabada OUT!
OUT! KABOOM! Bowled! That is a Starc special. Australia have been wanting that. It has taken a long time but eventually it has come. That ripping inswinger from outside off, curling in, not even allowing the bat to come down and then goes under. Right onto the stumps.
