Faf du Plessis gets the series trophy, his side looks a very happy and satisfied bunch, and that is all we have for now, apart from telling you to read Firdose Moonda's match report. Abhishek Purohit signing off, along with Devashish Fuloria. Have a good evening

Faf du Plessis: "This is my first time captaining. So it is a nice time when you see at the scoreboard and see 44 required off 1 ball. We have been consistently good in all games. It has been a learning experience for me, it is a young bunch, there is so much energy. I have always captained at a young age, I enjoy it, it keeps my mind busy. It is about finding that line, you have to take responsibility, but you cannot afford to lose your flair. Cannot wait for the Test to start on the 2nd."

Henry Davids is the Man of the Match. Davids: "i am loving cricket at the moment. Great support from my wife, my family. Best cricketing experience I have ever had. My aim was to go out, get game time and enjoy it. Confidence that I carried from the Champions League helped a lot."

Brendon McCullum: "SA played well in those clutch moments. We were 10% off throughout and against a good side that exposes you. 160-165 would have been a really pleasing score to keep them to, but they played well in the back half of their innings. Had our top order got going we could have been competitive but we could not get those partnerships. Some of the guys leave tomorrow, we will try and retain the focus, work out our plans and try and put SA under some pressure [in the Tests]."

South Africa just too strong for New Zealand in the end. The hosts walk around the ground, stumps in hand, acknowledging what has been generous support through the afternoon. A disappointed Brendon McCullum trudges out. Have to feel this was the format in which New Zealand had their best chance, but who knows, they just won a Test in Sri Lanka. The first of two Tests will start in Cape Town on the second day of the New Year
