With the batsmen having posted a competitive total that would require an Australia side short on confidence to score at more than 10 runs an over to win, the bowlers - aided by good fielding - took the result home. "Picking up wickets in this format is always important because T20 is all about slogging", skipper Faf du Plessis said.
"The T20 World Cup is in Australia and that's not too far away, so hopefully we'll be back for that and that will probably be my last global tour I would think", Cricket.com.au quoted Du Plessis, as saying.
In the same tour, South Africa won their first ever Test series on Australian soil by defeating them 2-1 in the three-match Test series under the former captain, Graeme Smith.

While the Proteas' start was so fast it bordered on a false start in sprints, their finish was a lawnmower one as they crept to 108/6 in their innings after having reached 50 off just 4.2 overs, with AJ Tye - the highest wicket-taker in global T20 this year - instrumental in slowing things down with his 2/18 off two overs at the death. "I think they (South Africa) got off to a great start with the bat". We gave him the silent treatment and he still scored runs in South Africa, but we felt like it was not huge runs he scored the one hundred there in Centurion when the wicket was slow. The Proteas got away to a flyer with opener Quinton de Kock clubbing 22 off 16 balls with two sixes and du Plessis hitting 27 from 15 balls. Earlier, he impressed in the field with 14 for one and two catches, including a brilliant juggling effort on the boundary rope to dismiss South Africa's captain, Faf du Plessis.
That left South Africa at 84 for three, triggering a rash of late wickets for only 24 runs.
Tye bowled out his only two overs at the end of the innings to finish with 2-18 while Coulter-Mile captured 2-19.
