MAN OF THE SERIES
Ben Stokes
With the Brilliant 96 runs in second innings by Amla and 78 runs of Bavuma Help RSA to score better with bat. But they lost the series against England.
Rabada is the Man of the Match for his haul of 13-144

Rabada: “It was a bit up and down. The key on that was to bowl in the right areas, hit a good length and you will get your rewards. Everyone in the team managed all the bowlers well, we knew that it would be tough as Abbott was struggling with a hammy, but credit to him for coming out and bowling with half-a-hammy. Great to play with a quality cricket team – it’s what I always wanted to do.”

Captain Abdevilliers become the captain who falls in Duck in his first three innings.

AB de Villiers: “Thought the boys were very fired up for this Test match. It’s been a while since we won a Test match and we will enjoy the celebrations after this now. Very excited about some of the guys. Kagiso taking 13 wickets in a match, doesn’t come every day. And Temba who has been consistent throughout the series. To win against a solid England side 0-2 down showed a lot of character and we can build on that in the future. Taking seven wickets so quickly today wasn’t on my mind when I was in bed last night. I was prepared to go till 5:30 today. I have really enjoyed it (on captaincy) and it’s been a good space to be in and looking forward to the future with a few young guys coming in. It’s a bit of a rebuilding phase for us. We have lost quite a few players in the last few years. There is a bright future with the guys showing character. Looking forward to the challenges that is going to come our way.”
