9.35pm Fourth clean sweep for South Africa in a five-match series, the first time they're achieving this feat against Australia. For a long time, this looked like a contest between David Warner and South Africa. But Warner's dismissal for 173 hastened the end for the visitors. That the hosts put themselves in this position was largely due to a 178-run stand between Duminy and Rossouw, who made a sparkling century. Then Tahir came into his own with some magical legspin to help ride a patchy fielding effort. What a start to the summer for South Africa

Steven Smith: Phenomenal from Davey. The rest of us didn't stand up. This has been a toughs series, we have been outplayed. They thoroughly deserve to go up. We haven't played our best cricket. Disappointing, have to move on. One Shield game before SA come for the Test series. Starc is back. We have got to do a lot better than what we did here."

David Warner is the Man of the Match: "Pleasing to get some runs on the board. Disappointing with the result. Tried to take it to the back end. Credit to SA, who were on top of us from the first game. Backed my instinct and played my game. You get some luck, you don't get some luck, today was okay. We've got some starts, haven't really built partnerships and haven't played the complete game. We have to think quick. SA will come, ready to go (for the Tests)."

Rilee Rossouw is the Man of the Series: "Special, finally crossing the three figures. Credit to JP who helped me there. I try to hit the ball as hard as possible. Takes a bit of getting used to (batting at various positions). If the captain and coach say you have to do it, you have to do it. Very emotional for me, you never know how many opportunities you will get to play for SA."

Faf du Plessis: "He (Warner) played an incredible knock, we had all the answers. A lot of credit to us as a team. Right through the series, different guys stood up. We were good with the ball. Whatever was thrown at us, we had the answers. Wake me up tomorrow and tell me. It's a dream. We were just too good for them. A lot of energy, guys backing themselves. This was a really important match for us, to take some momentum over to the Tests. Very nice heading over there with 5-0."

Steyn to Zampa, 1 run, OUT

tucked towards deep midwicket, the throw comes in full and flat as Steyn collects it cleanly and whips the bails off. Perhaps Boland's hit on the knee may have slowed him down as he turned for the second. Third umpire has two looks before deciding it's 5-0 for South Africa.

Ajay: "Warner 172 remind me of Sachin 175. So unlucky" The only difference was Sachin's knock came when the series was alive. For Warner to play this kind of knock knowing very well it wouldn't change the series scoreline was something else. Super stuff

Phehlukwayo to Warner, 1 run, OUT

Unfortunate end to a top, top knock. He simply had to come back for the second after carving that to deep cover, but the throw was right on top of the stumps from Tahir as de Kock gathered the ball cleanly and whipped the bails off. Newlands stand up to applaud a great innings.

backs away and lofts it up and over point, third man comes around to cut that off

Warner walks down the track to have a word with Zampa. Wonder if the message is to just go for it. Sweeper cover comes in, midwicket goes back.

he's clobbered that, or has he? Backs away and slashes that to get it into the gap towards square third man. For a minute, it looked like he'd smashed that, but ended up slicing it

Steyn back. Can he deliver the final blow? Warner on strike.
