5.30pm AB de Villiers collects the trophy, and South Africa's players celebrate the 3-0 series win. Can they sweep Bangladesh 7-0 across formats? Do come back for the first T20 on Thursday. Until then, goodbye and good night.

More good news for SA: Philander is back to domestic cricket after injury break

SabbirChowdhury: "I was hoping against hope that the winning margin for South Africa would be less than 200. However, Bangladesh just almost made it. As a Bangladeshi fan that was quite disappointing. I just hope that the next time when Bangladesh visit South Africa, they'll win some matches for us the crazy fans of Bangladesh cricket. I'm sure that won't be a hopeless expectation. "

5.20pm Presentation:

Mashrafe: All three matches, it was so difficult. It is something we can learn from, and still two T20s left. Hopefully, the boys will play with more passion. Bowling has been an issue, even we could not get a partnership going with the bat. This wicket was pretty good to bat on. Injuries to Tamim and Mustafizur are big blows but we can't make any excuses. Sarkar is also struggling at the moment, and this is something we can learn from. T20s will be a fresh start for us.

Faf is the Man of the Match. He has been rushed back to the hotel. He isn't here to collect the award

De Kock is the Man of the Series: The wickets have been good wickets and the ball has come on. I had a tough series in England, and it's good to catch up on the runs here. The 168 probably stands out the most. Temba keeps me on my feet. It was a nice little change-up, Temba did well. Happy for him. Bangladesh are going to a stronger team in the T20Is.

AB de Villiers, stand-in captain: It was good fun, and it is easy to captain a team like this. It was a clinical series, especially today. Today was probably the best performance in my eyes, and this wicket suited them the best. We had a good opening stand, and Faf controlled it well. I was very impressed with the talent coming through. Very excited with Markram and Mulder. Temba, well, opened the batting and did his job.

5.11pm After securing the Test series 2-0, South Africa take the ODI series 3-0. Sunday's victory was set up by fifties from captain Faf du Plessis, opener Quinton de Kock, and debutant Markram. They carried SA to 369 for 6 - the highest score at this venue. The hosts, however, have lost du Plessis to a back injury.

The scoreboard pressure was just too much for Bangladesh. Dane Paterson struck twice in his first two overs, before Andile and Rabada made further inroads. Shakib and Sabbir then held up SA's charge briefly with a 67-run stand, but Markram and Tahir wrapped up the tail quickly. Where will Bangladesh go from here?
