QUOTE

"Got a little bit twitchy there. It was set up by the bowlers, chasing 140 should be pretty comfortable most times, we got there in the end. I thought we bowled really well at the back end, used the conditions well and pressured them after a good start. It's nice to be making runs, that's my job, so hopefully keep doing it," said Australian man-of-the-match Cameron White, who made 41 not out off 31 balls.

But the young South African side will nevertheless take a lot from this series. It must be remembered that there was no Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, Morne Morkel or Dale Steyn for this series...

09 Nov 2014

Well done to Australia!

As I mentioned earlier, the Proteas were about 15 runs short of what they needed to post. Credit to David Wiese (3/21) and Robin Peterson (3/28), who made sure South Africa stay in the game. Kyle Abbott's death bowling was also impressive at the end there.
