Shaun Marsh failed to save Aussie as Proteas won ODI seriesThe first ODI match between them started in 4th November 2018 where South Africa won by 6 wickets against the home team. However, at the home venue, Australia is always very dangerous but this time their team failed to take the advantage. In the 2nd ODI which took place in 9th November 2018 at Adelaide, Australia won by 7 runs so far. So, the innings came to an even. But in the 3rd ODI which took place in 11th November, Proteas played very well considering the local team and claimed the series.

It was a day/ night competition where Australia won the toss and decided to bowl first. The match took place at Bellerive Oval, Hobart. In the match, Australia came to bowl and their opponent guest team Proteas started to bat. De Kock and Hendricks started the innings for South Africa but in 4 runs, De Kock was gone. In 26 runs, another opener Hendricks was gone as well. First three wickets were gone in 55 runs and Aussie bowlers started to dominate the ground.

But the partnership between captain Du Plessis and Miller changed every calculation. Both of them made century each in the match and made the partnership more than 250 runs so far. Plessis scored his 10th century in the match and Miller scored highest 139 runs so far. Finally, losing five wickets team South Africa scored 320 runs so far in fifty overs. Mitchell Starc and Stoinis took two wickets each for the team Australia.

In return, Lynn and captain Finch started the innings for Australia but in 18 runs both returned to the dressing room. Marsh played quite well and made a century out there where a couple of players named Stoinis scored 63 runs, Carey scored 42 runs and Maxwell scored 35 runs so far. They also played completely fifty overs but failed to chase the score successfully. They scored total 280 runs and so team Australia missed the home series against South Africa so far.
