South Africa win fourth Test after explosive spell of bowling by Philander

Vernon Philander grabbed six wickets in a devastating spell of swing bowling as South Africa crushed Australia by a record 492 runs to clinch the four-match series 3-1 at Wanderers.

Australia's aggressive victory in Durban served as the turning point that put South Africa on the path to a historic Test series win, according to Proteas captain Faf du Plessis.

A lead that had been 401 accreted to 612, the home side finally declaring on 6 for 344. So I guess the decision is with them, how they want to play. "Everybody wanted something special to happen, and the team wanted something special for Morne". It produced its fair share of controversies beginning with the treacherous turner in Pune, the dressing room DRS assistance in Bangalore and the subsequent drama that followed, the exposed chatter between Matthew Wade and Ravindra Jadeja at Dharamsala and finally, Virat Kohli's comments on his fractured friendships with the Australians post the final Test.

"Those are the sort of things I'm going to miss a lot". In Australia 18 months ago, he came back from scores of 37, 32 and 7 in the first two Tests, and a conviction of ball-tampering, to score an unbeaten 118 in the day-night Test in Adelaide. "South Africa were outstanding".

Resuming on 88-3, the tourists slumped to 119 all out before lunch on the final day as Vernon Philander took a Test-best 6-21. "As players you do have competitive nature with each other, I played with him at Delhi a year ago and it was nice to share information".




Not only was this Australia's first series defeat in South Africa since 1970, it was also the first time since that same tour that they had gone through a series of at least four Tests without a single batsman scoring a century. "I think it was important for someone to drive it home by spending some time at the crease", Elgar said.

"It's exciting for a new group that we can start to rebuild a new culture and hopefully perform a hell of a lot better than we did in this Test match". "Morne's been a special player", he said. "The guys were really pumped after that first game". "Whoever comes in next will have big boots to fill". It was awesome to see him not walk off, although knowing him he was never going to walk off.

Morkel himself was typically shy.

Morkel has one last job to do, as he has to name his predecessor as the song-master in the team. "Today is all about him", said Rabada. You can't just drift through it. A lot of us have got to step up and take the slack. "When he is playing well and the rest of our batting unit is playing well, I am smiling", Elgar said. A bowler who so often has supporters urging him to pitch the ball up, Morkel's side strain may have made it harder to bowl short. However, he wasn't going to let that affect his last outing.

The visitors started day one at the bottom of the barrel, and they were outplayed over all five days. "If you're not personal and you just have a competitive edge on the field I'm extremely happy with that".
