AUSTRALIA ended its ODI series against South Africa for other teams than the one that took off, but it still weakly dropped 2-1 in a difficult duel.
Here we will look at the five things that we learned from the third and last ODI on Sunday.

Justin Langer made it clear that he would take into account the runs in all formats in the test's test equation, so Shaun Marsh's centenary on Sunday has him well prepared to play in the first leg of the Border-Gavaskar series in December.
Marsh kept Australia in the hunt in Hobart with 102 token 106, justifying his place in the team before D & # 39; Arcy Short. It was the sixth ODI left-handed set and his third in the last six 50-over games.
He has also continued his great form since returning to Australian soil. Strongly under pressure after unsuccessful test cricket outside the home – 161 runs at 13.41 – Marsh is on average 76.5 on all cricket forms since returning home.
He made 80 and 98 points for Tasmania's Western Australia last month, and his 22 years for Australia in Adelaide scored less than 50 after returning to Australia.
With colleagues from Western Australian Marcus Stoinis, Marsh has made South Africa work for victory. The pair gathered in 3-39 in the pursuit of 321 and struggled back into balance with a powerful show of power beat that temporarily laid the Proteas on the back foot.
Stoinis and Marsh joined 107 to escape from 118 balls before he was fired for 63 out of 76. He hit five fours and four sixes after he moved up to No. 5.
AUSSIES LET PROTEAS PARA FROM HAKU
David Miller and Faf du Plessis did not need invitations to make the most of their second life.
The Proteas couple at Hobart made a staggering 252 total – the most in ODI between South Africa and Australia. The previous result was 222 between Michael Bevan and Steve Waughem at the Docklands stadium in August 2000.
They both created empathic centuries on Sunday after each hook has been released before reaching 50 points.
Du Plessis was abandoned by goalkeeper Alex Carey 29 and finished at 125 (114).
Miller returned to the raccoon at the age of 41, when he was trapped in front by Glenn Maxwell, and Aleem Dar raised his finger. Du Plessis analyzed this decision (after a 19-second wait), and DRS stated that the ball had passed through the stumps.
He finished in 139 (107) to record his highest score in the history of ODI.
Miller and du Plessis took from South Africa with an uncertain rate of 3-55, after draws from 15.3 to an awesome 320 to win.

FAF IS A CAPITAL WONDERFUL
Du Plessis had to thank for it, but two centuries in South Africa on Sunday.
His own – who was his fourth in the ODI against Australia – could not have arrived at a better time.
With the all-square series at 1-1, and Proteas fighting in deciding 3-55, du Plessis led by example as all great captains do.
He defeated the challenges of Mitchell Starc and a colleague. and went to fast 125, he drops only 114 bullets, including 15 fours and two sixes.
But what he did for his team-mate Miller was probably more influential.
Miller got LBW 41, and du Plessis stood at the end of the enemy. The batter looked ready to walk, he did not call for verification until the captain appeared.
Du Plessis called a review for him, and Miller was saved by a ball-tracker. The 29-year-old made 139 throws from 108 balls in what Graeme Smith described as "one of the best rounds you'll see."
Miller was also awarded a match and series player.
STAR QUESTIONS WHO ARE NOT COMING
Taking into account recent appearances in Australia, many hoped that Mitchelp Starc, Josh & # 39; and Hazlewooda and Pat Cummins would be enough to mask their defeats.
After three ODIs, it became clear that it was too much to ask.
The trio was fresh after long distances from the international cricket after injuries that took place during the South Africa walk. Only Starc has since returned to Australia, and this was only in two test games against Pakistan with reduced capacity.
All three were far from their best in this series, taking eight goals at 50.38.
Cummins took only one and finished the series at a low level, hitting 0-67 out of 10 reps.
Bowlers are currently out of matches to prepare for a series of tests against India after none of them has been selected for this year's Twenty20.
STOINIS YOU HAVE A BUNNY AT MAKING
Reeza Hendricks will be happy to see Marcus Stoinis' back after finishing his tour in South Africa.
Stoinis was one of the best and most consistent performers in Australia of this series, taking eight goals on 15/12.
He particularly liked his brief encounters with Hendricks.
The 29-year-old only dropped seven opening balls in three matches, but he defeated Hendricks twice without losing time.
The first wicket appeared in the first ODI, when Hendricks jumped with the ball for a long time to let Chris Lynn catch an easy catch. However, the second gate was much better for Stoinis.
His delivery was on his feet, but Hendricks was slightly tickling when he tried to look at the thin leg.
Anyway; Stoinis 2, Hendricks 0.
