Australian Cricket hit a low here last year on this ground 2 years ago. To come back and win a series here just goes on to show that Australia's management including Justin Langer, Aaron Finch and Tim Paine in tests have led their recovery well. Classic case study for teams looking to get out of lows of cricket.

00:48 (IST)27 FEB 2020

South Africa never looked in the chase. They lost de Kock and du Plessis early on in the innings and never recovered from there. Starc was lethal in the beginning and Spinners slowed down South African innings in the middle. Agar was once again pick of the bowler and almost got a second hat-trick of the series. Dussen and Klassen did share a 34 runs stand but it was never going to enough to win the match. once again, Australian bowlers bowled many slower balls to make the most of the surface.Starc and Agar shared three wickets each to humiliate the hosts' second time in the series. Warner and Finch set the tone for the tourists as the duo shared a 120 runs stand for the first wicket.

From #ProteaFire to #ProteaAshes SA Cricket in moving in only one direction. Another series defeat for SA. Boucher and De Kock have lots of thinking to do in terms of team selection and combinations.
