That's all we have tonight. Thanks for joining us, thanks for writing in. Cheers

Time for the presentation
Morne Morkel is the Man of the Match. He says, "Lot of work has gone in the last couple of days. Allan Donald and the whole bowling unit. Haven't changed much from last season. Just concentrated on the disciplines and basics. Special scalp, Clarke. He is a quality player. You can never count Dale out, will keep coming back in second and third spells. Lopsy has been working hard too, so big credit. Runs were always around the corner. I hope we can take the confidence from tonight. Really glad for the batting unit."

: "Our batting set the game. Graeme and Jacques set the game up, and David Miller and JO played fantastic knocks in the middle. The last game we lacked partnership, but this time the boys came out and proved what we are capable of. Always knew Graeme is an awesome player, was just a matter of time before he got us runs. We were joking earlier on about a 200 for no loss, but it's okay, it was 200 for 1. The bowlers responded superbly with their skills on this slow pitch. Durban will be a tad bit warmer, but looking forward to it."

Michael Clarke: "We were outplayed in all facets of the game. They showed how to bat on a slow track, they executed with the ball and even in the field they were much better. I am confident both Shane Watson and Shaun Marsh will be fine for the decider. Massive positive that Watto walked out to bat. The wicket was a little bit slower, but I don't think execute well."

A comprehensive win for South Africa. Fireworks go around at St George's Park. SA batted really well on this slow track, with fur men getting fifties. With Watson injured and two early wickets, it was always going to be tough. Hussey and Warner fought, but once they went it was all over, even though the inured Watson came out and hit a six and a four

Steyn to Doherty, OUT, Bowled out off the last ball. Full toss outside off, drives with an open face, Duminy catches it at point, and hands it over to the leg umpire, who at the moment is at point because the left-hand batsman is on strike. Doherty's average takes a blow, he had a great chance of ending not-out

Steyn to Doherty, no run, length ball, outside off, pushed to cover

The merry band goes, "Bye bye Aussies, bye bye Aussies, bye bye Aussies, we hope to see you again."

Steyn to Cummins, 1 run, bouncer, doesn't rise up, pulled away to deep square for one

Steyn to Cummins, FOUR runs, Lovely strike from Cummins for his first ODI boundary. It's a half-volley, driven between mid-off and extra cover

Steyn to Cummins, no run, beaten outside off

"If there's one ODI series that needs to be done away with, it's the England vs Australia next summer. England could have had another two tests against South Africa if not for that pointless series." True, Kaspar Larsen

Steyn to Cummins, 2 runs, steered away from just outside off to Smith at third man, which is good new sin itself. He was off the field earlier with a stomach bug

Steyn will finish off
