Australia next faces India at the Gabba in the first of three Twenty20s on Wednesday.

The bowlers once again stepped up and produced the goods.

"The T20 World Cup is in Australia and that's not too far away, so hopefully we'll be back for that and that will probably be my last global tour I would think", Cricket.com.au quoted Du Plessis, as saying.

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

"They got off to a great start with the bat, may be few too many runs".

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.

Back in August, nearly one month after Lovato's overdose, Vitale denied rumours that she provided Demi with drugs. The former Disney Channel star commented with: " You have no idea what you're talking about ".

South Africa skipper, Faf du Plessis becomes the first ever worldwide captain to beat Australia at home in all three formats of the game.

The mercurial Maxwell couldn't stop Australia losing their fourth straight T20 global despite his best efforts, top scoring with 38.

Du Plessis said that his team gave India captain Kohli the "silent treatment" in an attempt to keep him quiet when the two teams squared off earlier this year.

On the contrary, the Proteas have proved as to why they are one of the teams to watch out for the quadrennial event next summer by thrashing the World champions in their own backyard. "We're like, "better not say too much to him because you'll get him going". South Africa smashed 42 runs, losing just the one wicket, while Australia could manage only 27, and lost their top three batsmen.

Meanwhile, former Australian captain Kim Hughes has joined growing calls for a shake up of the domestic fixture, questioning the timing of the one-off T20I against South Africa and declaring it did not help the Test aspirations of an all-rounder he has mentored. Glenn Maxwell, who was standing at the deep mid-wicket area grabbed a stunner to get Australia back on track.
