Man of the Match: Albie Morkel

Player of the series Graeme Smith

Smith: I have been around for a fair bit now obviously the responsibility is on me with a few youngsters coming in the team. This has been a great preparation for the India tour. We have done it the hard way here on slightly under-prepared wickets. We have bowled, batted and fielded well. We have lots of respect for Indian team, they have lots of experience. We have had a great time here.

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Alvida!

Shakib Al Hasan to Smith, SIX runs, Sweeps the series with a six. Emphatic win. He went down the track, getting outside off in the process and lofted it over long-on. With that South Africa move to no 1 position in the ODI rankings.

Farhad Reza to de Villiers, OUT, done in by the nip-backer. It cut in from outside off stump, the bat came down outside the line and it hit the pad in front of middle and went on to disturb the furniture. He would have been out lbw even if it didn't go on to hit the stumps. But a refreshing innings from de Villiers. He came in and immediately upped the ante.
