South African pacer Kagiso Rabada picked three wickets to help contribute towards his side's 10-run win against Australia at Old Trafford, Manchester on Saturday. 

Rabada dismissed Usman Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc to help the Proteas defend a total of 325. The fast-bowler accounted for the wickets of Usman Khawaja and Mitchell Starc in the 49th over of a tense chase, to push Australia out of contention.

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah similarly accounted for three wickets in the previous clash of the day between India and Sri Lanka but failed to complete a five-wicket haul.
