It was Morne Morkel’s last day in international cricket, but Vernon Philander stole the show.
Morkel was given a guard of honour by his own teammates as South Africa prepared for the final day of a long summer, creating an air of expectation that Morkel could run in for the Proteas one final time and make an impact on Australia. As it turned out, he was barely required.

Philander struck with the first ball of the day to remove Shaun Marsh – with a thick inside edge ballooning off the pad and into the hands of Temba Bavuma running in from gully – and with the fourth to take care of the other member of the Marsh household. With Mitchell edging through to Quinton de Kock, Philander brought up his 200th Test wicket in his 54th Test.That statistic also showed the relentlessness of the South Africans, who walked away with their biggest prize of the season: a first Test series win over Australia on home turf since 1970. While the series victory over a very respectable Indian side was cherished, this contest against a team that they had failed to beat in seven home series since readmission was always going to be the hardest. In the end they won it handsomely.
