Australia ended up with a different team than the team that started the ODI series with South Africa, but still fought hard 2-1.
Here are five things I learned from the third and last ODI on Sunday.
All tests, ODI, T20I and BBL match in real time.
Marsh makes a test case.

Justin Langer made it clear that he would consider all types of execution in the test selection equation, so Sunday's Shaun Marsh Century can now play the first game of the Border-Gavaskar series in December.
Marsh defeated Australia 102 – ball 106 in Hobart, Arcy Short justified the team's position ahead of him. It was the sixth ODI and the third ODI of the left-handed pitcher in more than 50 games over the past six games.
Since returning to the soil of Australia, we have continued to perform well in form. Disappointing play in cricket testing away from home – 13.41 to 161 points – an average of 76.5 points on all types of cricket since returning home.
He received 80 points and 98 points for Tasmania, who was born in Western Australia last month, and left 22 points for Adelaide, who had 22 points since returning to Australia.
With his fellow Western Australian Marcus Stoinis, Marsh made South Africa work for the win. This pair came together for the pursuit of 321 from 3-39 and rebalanced with a powerful display that showed the contest results vigorously.
Stoney and Marsh scored 118 points and scored 76 in 76. He scored five goals and four goals after climbing to fifth place.
David Miller and Faf du Plessis did not need an invitation to make the most of their second life.
Hobart's Proteas team has played the 252 most at ODI between South Africa and Australia. The previous best was 222 points between Michael Bevan and Steve Waugh at the Docklands Stadium in August 2000.
Both fighters began a difficult centennial on Sunday.
Du Plessis was dropped by goalkeeper Alex Carey in 29 seconds and finished 125 (114).
When Glenn Maxwell and Aleem Dar were locked in front, Miller was walking to the foot of 41. Du Plessis (after 19 seconds) reviewed the decision for him and the DRS discovered that the ball was crossing the stump.
He scored 139 ODI (107 points).
Miller and du Plessis have secured a huge 320 wins over South Africa after a 3 to 55 loss from 15.3 over par.
Player Rating: Stoinis and Marsh stand up and put down the star bowl.

FAF is a package.
Back Plessis was one for South Africa on Sunday, but was thankful for two centuries.
His fourth in the ODI with Australia – could not have come at a better time.
Struggling in all the squares in the series 1-1, and in the Crystals at Proteas 3-55, Du Plessis led to all the wonderful captain-like examples.
He solved the challenge of a collaborator with Mitchell Starc. And recorded 125 runs in just 114 balls, including 15 4 and 2 6.
But what he did to Teammate Miller certainly had a bigger impact.
Miller gave the LBW at 41 and du Plessis stood on the non-striker side. The batter was ready to walk without demanding his review until his claim was published.
Du Plessis did a review for him, and Miller was saved by a ball-tracker. The 29-year-old made 139 runs on 108 balls that Graeme Smith described as "one of the best innings to look at".
Miller was also awarded a match and a player of the series.
STAR QUICKS is not a guide.
Given Australia's recent batting performance, many people expected that the presence of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins would be enough to snag the failure.
After three ODIs, I asked too much.
The trio was fresh for a long time in the international cricket game after being injured in a March tour in South Africa. Since then, only Starc has returned to Australia, which has been defeated in two tests with Pakistan.
All three of these series hold eight wickets at 50.38, the best of the series.
Cummins took just one and ended the series with a low note by receiving a 0-67 strike on his 10 overs.
Bowling players have to compete to prepare for the game against India because there are no players selected for their 20s this month.
Stony Manning has a rabbit.
Reeza Hendricks is pleased to see Marcus Stoinis behind when the South African tour of Australia is complete.
Stoinis had the best and most consistent performance in Australia with eight wickets at 15.12.
He especially enjoyed a brief meeting with Hendricks.
The 29-year-old swung openers with seven balls for three games but did not run twice at the Hendricks wicket.
The first wicket came on the first ODI when Hendricks hit a ball of good length so Chris Lynn could easily catch it. But the second wicket was even more lucky to Stearns.
His game went down to the bridge but Hendricks tickled the ball a bit when he was trying to get a good view of the ball.
Either way; Stoinis 2, Hendricks 0.
