The hosts claimed the victory and a 3-0 series lead –and series win, with two games to spare –on the back of a stunning David Miller ton, the burly left hander smashed 118 not out from 79 balls to lead his side to victory.

Miller was hampered by an injurytoo, and was superbly aided by Quinton de Kock (70) , Hashim Amla (45) and Andile Phehlukwayo (42 not out).

Outside Mitch Marsh (1-61) Tremain was easily Australia’s best bowler, snaring the wicket of de Kock to finish with 1-65 from his 10 overs. He should’ve had another scalp too whenPhehlukwayo edged behind late in the hosts’ dig.

He was given not out though, and with no reviews left the former Kinross quickand hisAustralians were forced to watch the young all-rounder reverse sweep his side to victory from Adam Zampa’s final over.

“I’m pretty sure [Phehlukwayo]did (hit it) but that’s the game of cricket, those things happen and you have to try and move on from that and try and get him out. We weren’t able to do that today,” Australian skipper Steve Smith said.

“It’sa pretty hard pill to swallow …you don’t lose too many games with 370 on the boardbut obviously Davey Miller played a phenomenal innings at the back end.

“He took the game away from us.”

Smith said while Australia’s selection of three uncapped quicks on the tour, letting their more recognised fast bowlers have a break,“hasn’t gone to plan” he’s sure Tremain, Dan Worrall and Joe Mennie will take plenty from the series.

Tremain has, quite comfortably, been the best of the three rookies.

“It hasn’t gone to plan so far, but I’m sure the guys will be able to take a lot out of playing against the South Africans,” Smith said.

“There’s some quality batsmen in this line-up and you’ve got to learn to play against the best if you want to play international cricket and I’m sure they’ll take a lot out of this series.”

David Warner (117) and Aaron Finch (53) went ballistic after Smith won the toss and batted, putting on 110 in the first 13 overs before the latter was dismissed having faced just 34 balls.

That brought Smith (108) inand he and Warner proceeded to pile on another 124 in the next 21 overs to catapult the Australians to an enviable position at 2-234 with 16 overs left whenWarner was dismissed.

From there George Bailey (28) and Travis Head (35) pushed their sides score to 6-371, the highest One-Day International score at the ground. That record stayed in place for about three hours.

In a performance reminiscent of South Africa’s 2006 showing at the Wanderers when they ran down Australia’s 4-434, Miller led the hosts to another record-breaking win.

“I said at the toss I wanted our top four to score the bulk of our runs and I wanted one of them to score a hundred, we had two guys do that [on Wednesday] which is a positive,” Smith said.

“It’s a very tough loss but it was a pretty good batting display to be fair. Davey was oustanding at the end,Quinton played really well again.”

The fourth game of the series is on Sunday, at Port Elizabeth, before the fifth and final game at Cape Town next Wednesday.

“Hopefully the guys can come back and we can win the last two games,” Smith said.
