It's been a fantastic Test and I hope you enjoyed the coverage. That's all from Kingsmead from me, Sahil Dutta, and from Andrew Miller. South Africa are a proud sporting nation and will fight back at Cape Town, I hope you'll join us on January 3 at 10.30 am (8.30 am GMT) for what should be a great occasion. For now, all that is left to say is have a very happy new year.

Andrew Strauss describes this as the best performance by an England side away from home he's witnessed. He commends under-pressure batsmen Cook and Bell and again Swann. He thanks the England fans for their support and, as ever, urges England to keep their feet on the ground, saying there is a long way to go in the series. But Strauss will be absolutely thrilled as his careful construction of a world-beating team goes a small step further.

Graeme Swann wins his second successive man of the match award, after he won it at Centurion. He chuckles and looks chipper, describing his year as a dream come true.

Graeme Smith says the collapse was caused by the constant pressure England exerted throughout the game. He believes batting first was the right option, but his side didn't bowl well enough and left South Africa chasing the game from then on. Defending the batsmen, he says the top-six have done the job for a while, and credit should be given to England for being so decisive. Intriguingly, Smith says the right selections need to be made for the next Test.

Andrew Miller's bulletin is ready for you to chew on as we wait for the presentation ceremony.

The England players huddle, woop, highfive, and embrace, but the damage was done yesterday so there is a sense of more quiet satisfaction today.

England win by an innings and 98 runs. A sensational spell last night turned this match, making today almost a formality. 1964 was the last time England beat South Africa by an innings, and after Centurion, where they almost snatched defeat in a crazy spell on the final day, England have been utterly dominant here.

Anderson to Ntini, no run, swinging in from a full length, but it starts wide of off and Ntini leaves alone

Anderson to Ntini, no run, oh, shaping away nicely, far too good for Ntini who plays and misses

England one wicket away now, the Barmy Army are trying to generate some verve and atmosphere. Here comes Makhaya Ntini, for the final time in a Test? They should play a few shots here.

Anderson to Harris, OUT, the full ball does the trick, in the softest of ways. Harris was deep in his crease and ended up chipping it slowly to mid on - Broad - who takes the easiest of catches

Anderson to Harris, no run, back of a length again, which seems strange for a man hanging on his crease, and defended easily enough

Anderson to Harris, no run, good start, shaping away and Harris, hanging back as usual, fences needlessly outside off

Anderson will replace Broad, who won't, it seems, get a chance to pick up a fifth wicket

Swann to Harris, FOUR runs, good shot, he does look clumsy at the crease but this is well played, couple of steps down the track, meets it on the pull and bunts it firmly down the ground for four

Swann to Harris, no run, here is Swann, pushing it across Harris who defends

Rishi wants to ruffle some feathers, and who am I to stop him, "To me, Swann is a better bowler than Harbhajan. Bajji's performance is solely dependent on the surface whereas, I find Swann more intelligent and is able to extract something out of even a flat surface." Ouch.
