Right, that's all from me, Sahil Dutta, and Abhishek Purohit, thanks for all the emails. For a final word on the game do check out Liam Brickhill's bulletin which will be ready shortly.

JP Duminy is named man of the match and declares that he's 'pretty happy' with his form. The man of the series is AB de Villiers, who seems surprisingly nervous as he accepts his award. He says he has 'a lot of work do with the gloves' and insists he's 'going to work very hard at it'.

South Africa win by 272 runs and complete 3-0 series win. Tough day for Zimbabwe here, they've fought bravely with the bat until today when, faced with an impossible 400 target, they slumped to 127 all out. Fair to say it was a rout today, South Africa - led by twin hundreds from de Villiers and Duminy - were might impressive.
