    Saffies ...... broke the bat, a humorous moment, and they don't see the funny side.

    Good to win and I don't mind Maxwell getting an over or two but not the ####ing last.

    Stoinis, credit where credit's due, great bowling performance.

    Finchy, brilliant captaincy, we don't win tonight if Smith is captain.

    They don't need to mention it 100 times though.
    He did solid in the end considering, just let himself down on the final ball of a couple of his overs.
    I'm more impressed what he did with the bat though.

    And Zampa bowled worse than he batted. A lot worse.

    It's so rare for Starc to have a bad spell over 10 overs, even when he gets smacked early he inevitably pulls it back. Averaging 21 in ODIs is pretty incredible, his record's as good as anyone to have played in this format. That said, Shane Bond averaging 20 despite his injuries is some achievement.
    He's bowling pretty fast at the moment, probably 10 ks quicker than he normally does.

    That's why, to me at least, ODI's are still relevant and worth keeping.

    Ebbs and flows. Far more than possible in 20/20.

    Nice fielding won it for us.

    They just couldn't ever find a gap.

    That's the story though, him and Stoinis.

    Starc gets tail ender out with yorker is not news, Cummins or Hazlewood taking wickets is not news. Zampa coming into the side and almost losing his place for Hobart before we hit the halfway point of our bowling innings but then pinning it back and playing a big part in our win is a story. Stoinis bowling a gem of a spell and continuing to cement his spot is a story.

    What's that Faf? "Congratulations to Australia?". All I heard was "That score shouldn't have been good enough to win". Take the mints out of your mouth and go suck an egg.

    Enjoying seeing the decent interviews with the captains there instead of just the token question or 2 post game.. And Howie here actually getting into the rooms with the players is brilliant access, bloody great stuff

    Lol, great performance set up by MOM Captain Finch, got a defendable total and did the job perfectly.

    Whilst the Adelaide Oval is the worlds flattest test pitch now with no more WACA, I’m pretty sure for OD games, 240 has often been very defendable

    Fair call.

    Absolutely. Though it seems just from extremely casual observation, that he is starting to rely a bit too heavily on getting wickets with yorkers. At his best obviously he’s always taken wickets that way anyway, but he also for a fair while got a lot of blokes caught in the slips (lefties) bowling full and swinging it away. Maybe I’m purely imagining this but it seems like he’s bowling without as much of a plan b as he had in say the World Cup etc.

    What was the crowd figure? Looked barely 10k there.

    It was at least 16k when SA started batting.

    Someone needs to photoshop Langer's head onto Hinkley.

    What did you think of Finch’s captaincy in the second innings?

    I’ve only read the last couple of pages on this thread but how was SA a clear outsider still?
    They were the outsider in game 1, won easily and it was 2 wins in 21 for Australia.
    Australia were also favourites against Pakistan in the T20s also. Bet against them and you just kept winning until tonight.
    I would still back SA in game 3. Well for value. I hate actually betting against Australia but if you want to make money it’s great business.

    2 wins for the year and both in Adelaide. Let them play every game here, after all they deserve to play in front of such massive crowds. Take out the SACA members and there wouldn't have been 5k there, it was somewhat embarrassing.

    Don't worry, there will be over 80k at the Mighty MCG in 2 weeks time, put this whole ODI series to shame
