I can't believe it!! What an amazing victory for South Africa, they deserve the win, Australia needs to regroup very very quickly before Friday's First Test. Good night from the Wanderers Well, South Africa wins the series 3-2, well deserved performance. This match certainly the equal of the "Humdinger" match played at Port Elizabeth in 1986-87. Congratulations to the homeside, back to the drawing board for the visitors.
