Australia has lost their chance to play in the finals of the Under-19 World Cup at Dubai after being beaten by South Africa by 80 runs on Wednesday.

The loss means that Australia will now play off for third place against England on Friday.

According to News.com.au, South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada was a thorn in the side of the Australian batsmen as he swept ahead with his six scalps in speeds of more than 140kph and broke down Australia's chase of 231.

Australia, which was bowled out for 150 in 42.2 overs, had mounted a late fight-back to peg South Africa to 9-230 earlier in the game, the report added.
