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!
