Australia has defeated South Africa by six wickets with five overs to spare with a strong mix of spin and seam bowling in the third and final Twenty20 match at Centurion on Friday, ahead of the ICC World T20.

South Africa limped to 128 for seven after being sent in to bat following repeated battering by Mitchell Starc, who took the wickets of Quinton de Kock, veteran Hashim Amla and Albie Morkel.

Spinners Glenn Maxwell and Brad Hogg were Australia's other most successful bowlers with two wickets apiece.

According to Sport24, Albie Morkel briefly thrilled his home crowd with two sixes in his 18 while De Kock was the one South African batsman to show some quality on a slow pitch as he scored 41 off 40 balls.

South Africa, who leave on Saturday for the ICC World T20, will be concerned by their poor batting display, with star batsmen Faf du Plessis (5), JP Duminy (13), AB de Villiers (11) and David Miller (2) being all dismissed in soft fashion as they picked out fielders with lofted strokes, the report added.
