We played the best game, says Captain Captain Faf du Plessis

Proteas captain Faf du Plessis believes Hobart will always be a place where South Africans "remember dearly" after visitors end their first ODI series victory in Australia on Sundays from 2008 to 2009.

Two years ago, Du Plessis led Proteas to the Testa series in the same Blundstone Arena, and was again on the wheel again on Sunday when his team won a series-based solvent with 40 series.

Du Pless is the first South African captain who is currently running the Proteas Test and the ODI series in Australia.

The captain was the main victor in the third ODI, with Du Plessis striking 125, part of the winning 252 team partnership with David Miller (139 out of 108 bombs).

Aussies responded with 280/9, and there was a real threat of redeploying 320 attack targets when Shaun Marsh (106) and Marcus Stoinis (63) were in a cube, while South African rifles ended the game by completing their game plans to the fullest in the last 10 rounds.

"I think we played our best cricket game, we challenged ourselves to build performance. The high pressure game we saw from batting, but from the ball, from the point of view of death, we were great," said Du Plessis after the match's rally.

"It was really good that we could get a test against two particular batsmen, and the way we responded was great to see.

"He and Dave had to compare the result somehow, we were talking about an attempt to get to 240, but with the power that Dave could achieve. We'll be happy to remember this place."

Also, Du Plessis's colleague, Aaron Finch, felt that the difference between the two teams was the last 10 overlays in the respective tournaments.

While the Proteas bloude 130 at this time, Aussies was limited to 65 wires to lose five gates.

"Every time you get a couple of sets of batters after all, the innings it's hard to include. They bowaled extremely well in the end, crediting them over the last 10 overs," Finch said.

"After 35 overs, we were in a great position, but they took it at the end. With a short cut, as soon as you get, you will actually be able to buy money.

"They were really impressed. This partnership between Marcus and Shan was excellent to give us the opportunity to get started.

"If we had been at this point two down, we would have been an opportunity, but not be."

Both teams have a weekend break before the next Saturday on Saturday, November 17, they meet on a single T20 International Golds Shore in Brisbane.
