Cape Town - Imran Tahir was named Man of the Series on the strength of his brilliant five-wicket haul in the opening match of the T20 International Series after the final match between the Proteas and Zimbabwe at Willowmoore Park on Sunday afternoon was abandoned without a ball being bowled. 

Torrential rain during the night that carried through into today made any thought of play impossible.

Tahir took 5/23, the joint second-best performance by a Protea in this format, in the opening match at Buffalo Park last Tuesday evening.

After the Willowmoore Park washout, the Proteas won the series by a 2-0 margin.

Their next assignment is their limited overs tour to Australia that starts at the end of this month.
