South Africa defeated Australia by Four Wickets and take an unassailable 3-0 in the five-match series in Durban as Killer Miller played a stunning knock of 118 off 79 balls, smashing Six Sixes, 10 Fours and remained unbeaten.
The Proteas were off to an ideal start in the chase with both openers Quinton de Kock and Amla firing from the word go. Australia made a comeback with quick wickets in middle of the innnings. But then David Miller arrived, blasted Australian bowlers and had a match-winning partnership with Phehlukwayo (42*). Earlier, David Warner and Smith Tons helped Australia to put up a mammoth total of 371/6 on the board. Dale Steyn went for 96 in his quota of overs. This is the 2nd Highest Successful Chase in ODI History. The First one too belongs to South Africa which also came against Australia.

David Miller's 69-ball 100 is fastest by a South African against Australia in ODIs, beating Quinton de Kock's 74-ball effort just a week ago

The team that's so often referred to with the C-word has the two highest chases in ODI history. Cricket is weird. #SAvAUS

Don't tell me Durban is going to see this 372 bring chased.The early signs suggest that SA might do this.
