Time for the presentation:

Jason Holder: We just let it slip in the middle and we didn't really bowl well. I've learn a lot and we didn't the rift boxes, we were't consistent and lost wickets at regular intervals. Our batsmen need to take responsibility and they need to bat till the end. A few guys will be coming in for the World Cup and I'm very confident of our chances. A lot of guys came here for the first time and it was a good learning tour.

Rossouw is the Man of the Match: It's very emotional for me and anyone scoring a hundred for his country will be emotional. I was feeling very relaxed and just in the zone and calm before the match. I've worked hard and lucky that it came off in Wanderers, today and many more to come. I try to be little disciplined initially and my natural games takes over later on. Amla's like a rock and and he makes me very calm at the other end. It doesn't matter how long it takes for a hundred as long as you get it.

Hashim Amla also the Man of the Series: Wonderful series and we played excellent cricket as the guys put their hands up. Rossouw is a wonderful player, it's difficult to stop him once he gets going, he's a clean striker of the ball. Nice to get the ball away while batting and set a platform with a partnership with Rossouw. We wanted to give a chance to everyone and Parnell put his hand up, Phangi bowled well too. While batting we were only trying to hit every ball for boundary and it turned out well. There was time in the series when we were under pressure but having everyone in a good nick is good for our chances in the World cup. Everybody is ready to go and hopefully we'll make it a special one for South Africa.

4-1 it is then and that's all we have from the the series, from the South African summer which comes to an end for international matches. Hope you all enjoyed every bit of it. Until next time, goodbye and good luck!

11pm Another convincing win for South Africa, another stellar performance, especially with the bat. West Indies came out with the right kind of attitude and four of their top five got good starts, but Phangiso kept it tight initially and Parnell struck later on at regular intervals to finally dismiss WI for 230. A couple of batsmen showed they were going to attack throughout, but the lower order could not resist for too long. It was always going to be tough after SA had put on a massive 361 in only 42 overs.

Behardien to Sammy, OUT, it's over, Behardien finishes it off as Sammy chops the ball onto his stumps. It was outside off with some room, Sammy wanted to cut it behind square off the back foot but got an edge to rattle his stumps

Amal: "@Mikesiva , i agree, but don't forget Russell and Sammy. They might seem under performing, but this is probably because of the out of form top and middle order. Still, they are good finishers for west indies cricket."

Russell: "@Mikesiva I'm looking forward to the WC unlike you. My only problem though, is I need a team to support now since my WI team is beyond "repair""
