Johannesburg, Aug 12 (ANI): Australia A beat India A by 25 runs at the TUKS Oval in Pretoria on Sunday to book a place in the final of the Cricket South Africa triangular series, getting their third win in four outings.

India will play South Africa A on Monday for a place in the final which takes place on Wednesday, the report further said. (ANI)
