Australia have secured their first win of the summer and home fans are rallying behind all-rounder Marcus Stoinis - the man they are trumpeting as their saviour.

But after a spoiler-alert triggered by a technological blunder, Australia edged closer to an emotional victory and Stoinis' face captured it all.

The 29-year-old Test hopeful was also the mastermind of a remarkable run-out, perfectly launching a missile from the out-field before Alex Carey's slick glove-work did the rest.
