India vs Australia,Faf Du Plessis,Virat Kohli

South Africa's captain Faf du Plessis and India's captain Virat Kohli toss the coin

South Africa recorded a comfortable 21-run victory in their T20 match against Australia in the first global cricket game played on Queensland's Gold Coast. We learnt a few lessons about the things that worked and didn't work.

The Proteas thus completed a highly successful tour that saw them achieve success in both white ball formats.

"We'll turn it around real quick against India".

Virat Kohli & Co had a horrific time when they toured South Africa and England this year.

Glenn Maxwell fought a defiant rearguard with 38 off 23 balls but Australia never looked like avoiding a fourth straight Twenty20 defeat and they finished their allotted 10 overs on 87/7.

Finnish president says he briefed Trump on forest monitoring
California has 33 million acres of forest, according to a University of California web page. "And they don't have any problem". But Niinistö said he does not recall any discussion of "raking" forest floors as something he would have suggested in any way.


The Proteas skipper's pull shot looked destined to sail over the ropes at deep midwicket, only for Maxwell to run backwards before leaping to take the catch over his head and behind him.

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. That left South Africa at 84 for three, triggering a rash of late wickets for only 24 runs.

Australia - Aaron Finch (capt), D'Arcy Short, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Ben McDermott, Alex Carey, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Billy Stanlake. Tye bowled out his only two overs at the end of the innings to finish with two for 18 while Coulter-Mile captured two for 19.

The world no 1 Test batsman notched up 593 runs against England in the five-match series and followed that up with three back-to-back hundreds against the West Indies in the One-day worldwide series.
