AUS v SA, 2nd T20, Centurion: South Africa beat Australia to clinch series (SA 2:0)

Johan Botha led his team from the front to guide South Africa to a 17-run victory over Australia in the second Twenty20 international in Pretoria on Sunday.
The Proteas captain took two wickets for 16 runs and was given good support from debutants Yusuf Abdullah (one for 16) and Roelof van der Merwe (one for 30), while Johann Louw (two for 36) also chipped in as the visitors were limited to 139 for eight. Van der Merwe also made a useful contribution with the bat, slamming 48 from only 30 deliveries as the hosts posted 156 for five.

AUS v SA, 1st T20, Johannesburg: South Africa beat Australia by four wickets (SA 1:0)

Powerful boundary-hitting from Albie Morkel and Mark Boucher in the last five overs of the innings Friday took South Africa to a four-wicket victory with four balls to spare over Australia in a Twenty20 cricket match.
South Africa finished on 168-6 in reply to Australia's 166-7 to go 1-0 up in the two-match series. The second game will be played at Centurion on Sunday.
Earlier, David Hussey smashed 88 not out off 44 balls to guide Australia to a defendable total. He smacked five fours and six sixes after coming to the wicket with the score on 16-2. The only other Australian batsman to make a meaningful contribution was opener David Warner, who hit four fours and a six to score 38.

AUS v SA, 3rd Test, Cape Town: South Africa wins third Test but loses series (AUS 2:1)

South Africa left-arm spinner Paul Harris took six wickets as the Proteas beat Australia by an innings and 20 runs to win the third Test but lose the series 2-1.
Harris claimed 6-127 off 42.5 overs as Australia was dismissed for 422 after tea on the fourth day at Newlands despite Mitchell Johnson hitting 11 fours and five sixes to score 123 not out off 103 balls and add 163 with Andrew McDonald (68). Harris won the man-of-the-match award after becoming the first South African spinner in 44 years to claim five or more wickets in an innings in a home Test.
Johnson, who was selected as the player of the series after taking 16 wickets and scoring 255 runs, scored his maiden Test ton with a six off Dale Steyn. He had missed out on a century in the first Test when Australia's first innings ended with him on 96 not out.

AUS v SA, 2nd Test, Durban: Australia claim series win (AUS 2:0)

Australia have completed a series win against South Africa after winning the second Test in Durban by 175 runs.
The hosts, needing an improbable 546 to win and level the best-of-three contest, finished on 370 for nine, with captain Graeme Smith unable to bat after fracturing his little finger.
South Africa started the final day on 244 for two but the early loss of Jacques Kallis for 93 effectively ended their hopes. Peter Siddle and Simon Katich took three wickets each for the tourists, who have avenged their loss to the Proteas on home soil earlier this year.
AUS v SA, 2nd Test, Durban: Australia 352 & 331-5 beat South Africa 138-9 & 370-9 by 175 runs

AUS v SA, 1st Test, Johannesburg: Australia beat South Africa by 162 runs (AUS 1:0)

Australia took two wickets in eight balls after tea Monday to beat South Africa by 162 runs in the first cricket Test and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
South Africa was bowled out for 291, well short of their victory target of 454. Man-of-the-match Mitchell Johnson, who took eight wickets in the match and hit 96 not out in Australia's first innings, finished off the Proteas by bowling Dale Steyn. Earlier, Peter Siddle took his third wicket with the dismissal of Paul Harris. Johnson finished with figures of 4-112, while Siddle took 3-46.
Australia had claimed three wickets in the middle session for the addition of only 42 runs when the South Africa batsmen could not keep out the opposition's fired-up bowlers. The Aussie seamers relied on short-pitched bowling to put the batsmen under pressure. The ploy accounted for the prize wicket of JP Duminy, caught in the slips off Siddle for 29, and when Mark Boucher was bowled by a beauty from Hilfenhaus for 24 five overs later, the last of the recognized batsmen was out.
AUS v SA, 1st Test, Johannesburg: Australia 466 & 207 beat South Africa 220 & 291 by 162 runs

AUS v SA, 5th ODI, Perth: South Africa beat Australia by 39 runs (SA 4:1)

South Africa's near-perfect tour began with a Test win in Perth and fittingly it finished with a 4-1 one-day triumph at the same venue as Australia conceded the No 1 ranking to Johan Botha's men.
JP Duminy, Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers, all of whom contributed to the Test successes, finished the trip strongly and the debutant Lonwabo Tsotsobe picked up four wickets to give the tourists one more happy story to recount on the flight home. South Africa had waited all series for the chance to bat first and when they did, they set the largest target of the five games thanks to Amla, De Villiers and Duminy.
Australia knew that chasing 289 was going to be tough and when they stumbled to 53 for four, Ricky Ponting might have been ready to update his assessment that Monday's loss in Adelaide was their worst performance of the summer. But in a reverse of Australia's trend throughout the series, the middle and lower orders outshone their colleagues at the top. Michael Hussey's 78 gave them the subtlest of sniffs and David Hussey and Brad Haddin made handy contributions but, like an Australian Tour de France cyclist, the uphill effort was simply too arduous.
Their requirement of 164 from 20 overs became 100 from 10 and, regardless of how clean Haddin could strike the ball, it was all too much.
Amla had promised so much throughout the tour but until his unbeaten 80 in Adelaide had struggled to build on his promising starts. His 97 was the closest thing to a century in this series and he did it in a typically calm manner, striking 52 singles and not bothering with a boundary for 26 overs as he and De Villiers picked off easy ones and twos through the middle overs.
There had been a couple of early cheers for Amla, who had guided Ben Hilfenhaus over third man for six, but once they fell to 58 for two he adopted the more conservative approach. His 118-run partnership with De Villiers, who was equally composed in his 60, set the platform for Duminy to go nuts in the final overs.
