Australia beat South Africa by two wickets in Sydney to win the one-day international series 4-1 and return to the top of the world ODI rankings.

The hosts were set a Duckworth/Lewis target of 275 from 48 overs after the Proteas made 280-6 from their 50 overs as opener Quinton de Kock hit 107.

The Aussies appeared to be coasting at 264-4 but lost four wickets for three runs to set up a tense finish.

However, James Faulkner hit the winning runs with five balls to spare.

It means that in the International Cricket Council's new rankings table, Australia are only 0.2 ranking points ahead of India, with South Africa third.
