Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

12.05pm That is that. Resuming from an overnight 153 for 3, Pakistan have been dismissed for 273. Olivier produced a double-strike – removing Babar and Sarfraz off successive balls – and set SA up for an emphatic win inside four days. Shadab punched his way to 47 but it only served to reduce the margin of defeat. So, SA sew up the series 3-0. The celebrations begin in their camp. SA have leapfrogged England and NZ to second in the ICC rankings while Pakistan have slid to seventh.

Sarfraz: We lost 3-0, but credit to their bowlers. They bowled really well. Shan Masood played really well, the way Babar shows his class. Shan and Babar were the positives. If you see Olivier is one of the best bowlers of this series. He bowled very well and he bowled fast.

De Kock, Player of the Match for his equal Test-best of 129: Any Test hundred will mean a lot. I’ve worked hard over a last couple of months. Me and Dale Benky have worked on a few technical things. Big man Olivier is bowling very well, he has done it at the franchise level, and it’s a great show at the international level. The old man [Steyn] is back, great to see him bowling in full flight.

Olivier, Man of the Series, for his 24 wickets at an average of 14.62: Look at the end of the day I’m proud of my performances but it’s a team effort. I’m just happy to contribute to the team. The Wanders has some bounce, so you don’t have to bowl that short although my pitch map says I was short. Each bowler brings something. For me it’s about bringing some different to this team.

Elgar: This is right up there and extremely proud of the guys and it’s a good way to start the year. Not too many Tests, but we’ve spoken at length as to what we want to achieve. Temperamental quicks – all of them – but we are fortunate to have bowlers who are experienced. They’re awesome to work with. The support was awesome from the crowd. Even though people were potentially busy, the crowd was awesome. Pakistan’s bowling unit it right up there. But don’t want to take anything away from 3-nil.

Elgar collects the trophy and the South African players get together to soak their thumping series win. That’s all we have for you from the Test series. Do come back for the ODI series. This is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of Varun Shetty, Venkat Raghav, and P Ranjith. Cheers

ICYMI: AB de Villiers to play PSL matches in Lahore

Umer: “Olivier is the main difference between the two sides. He took out the cream of Pakistan batting in all matches. Pakistan batsman had no clue how to play him in all 3 test matches. Man of the series for me.”

Waseem Abbas: “Look at the scorecard a lot of starts but not a real conversion into big score. I think this is where Pakistani batsmen failed to capitalized on once settled in the middle especially in SA. You need to learn the art of test batting as just Pujara showed his class in Australia. “

65.4W Elgar to Mohammad Abbas A mix-up between the wickets and that aptly sums up Pakistan’s tour. SA sweep them 3-0!
