That will be it, then, from the red-ball leg of the tour. Pakistan have been outplayed in all the three games and the worst part is the lack of fight from them. It was always going to be a tough place for them to come and win but a competition would have been expected from them but it was not to be. 3-0 in the Tests then, and the second installment of the series is not far away. The first ODI will begin on the 19th of January from Port Elizabeth. It will begin at 1300 local (1100 GMT). Hope you guys have enjoyed the coverage of the Tests, looking forward to have you'll back for the One-Day Internationals as well. Till then, it's goodbye from us. Take care!
The trophy is presented to Dean Elgar. Shake hands all around and the South African team gather around to pose for the shutterbugs.
South African skipper, Dean Elgar, says this win is right up there and they are happy they could maintain their record on this ground. Mentions it is a great way to start this year and they are quite clear about their goals. Credits the way their bowlers bowled, especially Olivier who is the least experienced of their pacers but did very well. Ends by thanking the crowd for the way they have supported them.
Man of the Series, Duanne Olivier, says he is very proud of the performance but is happier his team won 3-0. Informs he had to adjust to the wicket here and bowl it little fuller. Mentions every bowler has different skills and he brings something different than the others. Ends by saying they needed to start off well today and they did.
Man of the Match, Quinton de Kock, says any Test century means a lot to him as he works hard for it. Informs he has worked hard on correcting his technique which has helped him in recent times. Credits the way Olivier has bowled throughout this series. Ends by saying he is happy to see Dale Steyn bowl the way he has.
Pakistan captain, Sarfraz Ahmed, says they could not capitalize on the position they were in after Day 1. Mentions it is very difficult to play in South Africa and their bowlers were excellent. Further adds Shan Massod and Babar Azam are the positives in this tour. Credits Olivier for the way he bowled.
What they needed on Day 4 as they began was for the overnight batsmen to continue batting well. That was not the case as both fell cheaply this morning and what followed was a procession. There was not much of a resistance provided by the ones to follow except for Shadab Khan who was delaying the inevitable. Eventually the last wicket fell, albeit in a way the hosts would have least expected but they won't mind. The wickets were shared by all four pacers in this innings. A successful series for Duanne Olivier especially picking up 24 wickets. Pakistan did have a few positives but overall will be ruing the fact that they could not capitalize on a few good positions they had in the series. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony to follow...
Pakistan even had a chance to come back in the game when they had South Africa at 93/5 but from there on, the game started going away from them. Quinton de Kock first built a 100-plus stand with Hashim Amla for the sixth wicket and then a 79-run one with Kagiso Rabada for the eighth wicket en-route to his century. His 129 ensured that the hosts set a target of 381 for the visitors. It looked beyond reach for the visitors. A good opening stand of 67 gave them some belief but late strikes last evening caused them to end Day 3 on 153/3.
A deserving win for the hosts and a scoreline that depicts how much better they were as compared to their opposition in this series. Pakistan did have their moments but moments do not win you Test matches let alone series. They have once again fallen to a huge defeat and will be really disappointed to lose all 3 matches here, without putting up much of a fight. In this game the visitors did really well to bowl out South Africa for 262 after a really good start for the hosts. In their reply too, they were really well placed at one point but as has been the case with them recently, they fell apart and ended up giving a 77-run lead that was massive in the context of the game.
Dean Elgar To Mohammad Abbas OUT!
OUT! Run out! What a comical way to end the match. Where was Abbas going, only he will know. A flighted one on middle, Abbas pushes it towards mid on and sets off but his partner was going no where. The fielder throws it back to De Kock who takes the stumps off. Abbas was at sea and it means that SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 107 RUNS AND TAKE THE SERIES 3-0. A complete performance and a whitewash!
Dean Elgar To Mohammad Abbas
Lots of air on this one outside off, Abbas plays it back softly as well.
Dean Elgar To Mohammad Abbas
Looped outside off, defended towards cover.
Dean Elgar To Shadab Khan
Flatter one outside off, driven to deep cover for a single.
Dean Elgar to roll his arm over. Also, Lunch has been extended by half an hour to give the hosts a chance to pick up the 1 remaining wicket. It is extended till 12.30 pm local (1030 GMT), post which Lunch will be taken if the wicket does not fall.

D. Olivier
Duanne Olivier To Mohammad Abbas
Full toss there and Abbas seems to have missed his flick. The South Africans appeal but S Ravi turns it down. Had to be an inside edge there or else it looked to be in line.
Duanne Olivier To Mohammad Abbas
Short one outside off, Abbas rides the bounce and keeps it out towards point.
Duanne Olivier To Mohammad Abbas
Another one on a good length and off stump line, it takes the outside edge and runs towards point.
Duanne Olivier To Mohammad Abbas
This one is sprayed down the leg side and Abbas misses his glance.
Duanne Olivier To Shadab Khan
Short of a length ball on middle, pulled away by Khan to deep mid-wicket for a single.
Duanne Olivier To Mohammad Abbas
Frustration for SA! A poor misfield allows Abbas to pick up a single towards point and get off strike.
Duanne Olivier is back on.

D. Steyn
Dale Steyn To Shadab Khan
FOUR! A length ball outside off, Shadab places it wide of gully and looks to take a single but once that fielder is beaten, there is no stopping that ball. Runs away for a boundary as Bavuma can't reach it.
Dale Steyn To Shadab Khan
On a good length outside off, solidly defended by Shadab.
Dale Steyn To Mohammad Abbas
Fuller one on middle, driven down the ground towards long on by MA. Three runs taken as mid-wicket gives chase to that ball.
Dale Steyn To Mohammad Abbas
Another bumper slightly going down leg, Abbas ducks and lets it go once more.
Dale Steyn To Mohammad Abbas
Bouncer! Mohammad does well to duck under it.

K. Rabada
Kagiso Rabada To Shadab Khan
Bouncer! Shadab manages to fend it away somehow to end the over.
Kagiso Rabada To Shadab Khan
FOUR! Cut away hard behind point. A short length ball outside off, width on offer and Shadab cuts it away stylishly for a boundary. A batsman would have been proud of that shot.
Kagiso Rabada To Shadab Khan
Bouncer! The batsman ducks under it and lets it go.
