'We were very poor in Durban and the guys all came out and played well for Jacques
150th Test,' says Graeme Smith. 'We knew we were better than Durban.'
'After getting guys with a few starts we didn't go on to make big scores,' says Dilshan. 'Samaraweera batted superbly across the series.'
Man of the Series to AB de Villiers. Consistent runs. 'The surfaces have been a little bit odd but we batted really well here,' says AB. 'Captaincy
in the one-day series
will be a new challenge for me and we've got a nice set up and hopefully we play well.'
Man of the Match of course to the home-town boy, Jacques Kallis. 224 runs, six catches, three wickets. 'It's been a very special week,' says Kallis. 'A long as I don't read too many newspapers, I'll keep going as long as i'm enjoying it.'
This must be the first target to be reached of zero balls?
South Africa win their first series since 2008 when they overturned Bangladesh, before that they beat West Indies in January 2008. The host broadcaster used the twitter hashtag #noexcuses for this series and the home side have delivered, albeit after a blip in Durban. But either side of that aberration they have dominated as many assumed they would.
