Eoin Morgan hopes the sanctions imposed on Steve Smith and David Warner will have served to restore the reputation of a game he feels has been "battered"
From a new coach to a series win against Australia, South Africa endured a lot, but among their takeaways are consistency and success
Defeated in the first Test in Durban, South Africa shut out the noise and put in the hard work necessary to achieve a historic victory against Australia
The fast bowler counted South Africa's first Test series wins in England and Australia since readmission as the highlights of his international career, and the 2015 World Cup semi-final defeat as a significant low point
After years of either wilful or inadvertent ignorance, Australia have recognised the need for a change in attitude for the benefit of their most influential stakeholders: their fans
No. of 10-wkt hauls for Rabada in Tests, at age of 22 - the joint-most for any bowler before turning 23. Waqar Younis had also picked 4 10-fors before ageing 23.
Runs scored by AB de Villiers in this series, in 3 innings, without getting out to any bowler. He remained not out in first inns of both the Tests while in the second inns of last Test he was run out.
No. of 50+ scores for Dean Elgar in 8 Test inns at Port Elizabeth, including his fifty in this game. He has scored over 500 runs at the venue with two centuries and two other fifties.
No. of balls of a span in which Rabada took five wickets and that induced Australia's collapse.
