Australia lost their sixth wicket with 132 runs on the board when Mitchell Marsh got bowled off the bowling of Wayne Parnell for a score of 27 from 46 deliveries in the final of the ongoing triangular series against South Africa on Saturday.

Marsh hit a four and a six on his way to an individual score of 27 runs. He attempted to push a straight and well-pitched delivery from Parnell, but only managed to get an inside edge that rattled his middle-stump. Australia are now in serious trouble as they have lost six wickets already and have Brad Haddin and James Faulkner as the last batsmen whom they can rely on to guide them to a challenging total.

The South African bowlers in the meantime are making merry in conditions that are suitable for bowlers. While Parnell has bagged two scalps in the match so far, Dale Steyn has been the pick among the South African bowling attack so far with figures of three for 19 from six overs.
