The tourists were on their way to another win when Warner and Head put on 79 runs for the first wicket off just 48 balls.

But left-arm spinners Tabraiz Shamsi (2 for 29) and Keshav Maharaj (2 for 37) sealed the match on a spin-friendly pitch before fast bowler Gerald Coetzee (4 for 50) finished the Australian innings. Changed stance.

Maharaj also made a crucial intervention in the field by directly-hitting run-out to Warner, who made 78 off 56 balls and lost his shoe before slipping to take a run.
