Cape Town - Australia have regained the prestigious ICC Test mace and also won a cash award of $1m (around R15.32m) after winning the Christchurch Test against New Zealand by seven wickets, which gave them a 2-0 series win.

The result means Australia finished two points ahead of India in the final series before the April 1 cut-off date, with South Africa finishing third.

Steve Smith will receive the mace and the cash award on behalf of his team in a ceremony to be held at a later date.
