All things are clicking for Australia ahead of the World T20, can they continue this momentum into the World T20? Will the Proteas bounce and have a good showing in India, especially given the experience of all their players? Join us in a few days to find out.

Despite being on the losing side, Hashim Amla gets the Man of the Match for his career-best T20I score of 97*
...
Unlike the second T20I, this game was always in Australia's pockets, perhaps aside from that one over from Tahir in which both openers got out. Australia hit Tahir out of the park, Smith marshalled the chase well and the move to make Warner play in the middle order has worked. And they have also had Maxwell get into form before the World T20.
...
19.2 Abbott to Marsh, FOUR, that is just bludgeoned down the ground and a record chase at the ground is achieved. Australia have won by 6 wickets and they have come from behind to win the series 2-1.
...
19.1 Abbott to Maxwell, 1 run, slashed over the off-side but it bounces just short of Duminy.
...
Australia are one hit away. Kyle Abbott has the ball.
...
3 runs needed off the last over.
...
This will go down to the last over once again.
...
18.6 Rabada to Maxwell, 1 run, another swat, this time to cover and they take a single.
...
18.5 Rabada to Maxwell, SIX, WHAT WAS THAT? Didn't go where Maxwell wanted but still went for six. Gave himself room and crashed it over point.
...
18.4 Rabada to Maxwell, no run, goes for another slog but doesn't make contact with the slower ball.
...
Mitchell Marsh is the new batsman but it will be Maxwell on strike.
...
18.3 Rabada to Smith, WICKET, goes for the ramp but top-edges it to de Kock who takes a simple catch.
...
18.2 Rabada to Maxwell, 1 run, just another single, that was a lot of effort for a single from Maxwell.
...
18.1 Rabada to Smith, 1 run, yorker on leg stump and Smith works it away behind square.
...
Rabada to continue. Can he work a miracle here?
...
12 needed off the last 12 balls. With Maxwell at the crease, Australia are only two hits away.
...
17.6 Steyn to Maxwell, 2 runs, this one goes over extra cover and the target is almost within reach.
...
17.5 Steyn to Maxwell, FOUR, goes across the leg side and this time flat-batted it over mid-off for another boundary.
...
17.4 Steyn to Maxwell, no run, slower bouncer and Maxwell misses out again.
...
17.3 Steyn to Maxwell, no run, that was an excellent short ball but Maxwell went outside leg then went across and got himself into an awful position and was glad the ball didn't flick his gloves.
...
17.2 Steyn to Maxwell, FOUR, first ball and Maxwell jumps outside leg and just slashes it behind point for a boundary. Maxwell seems to be in a hurry.
...
If anyone thought that was good news, guess who just walked in, yes, it is Glenn Maxwell.
...
17.1 Steyn to Warner, RUN-OUT, that was so wide but Warner still gets some bat on it and decides to go for two but Tahir delivers a perfect throw and he gets his man this time. There was never two there.
...
Steyn to bowl his final over.
