The Test series between these two sides will be fresh in the minds of the fans, but not so much for the players, given most of the Australia Test side has gone home and the focused has switched to the World Twenty20.
Former England spinner Graeme Swann has rather candidly expressed his opinion about in-form Australia opener David Warner, labelling him an 'average individual' and calling him out on his professed love of 'banter'.
Australia captain Michael Clarke believes his side is still 'a long way' way behind South Africa as the top team in Test cricket.
It was an intriguing match that ended with just 4.3 overs to go, as the hosts nearly pulled off a miracle draw to save the series. But alas, Graeme Smith's final game in national kit ended in defeat.
South Africa Test fast bowler Kyle Abbott has been added to the T20 squad to play against Australia in the three-match T20 International series starting at St George's in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
@Karma... The Commonwealth is possibly the worst I have seen it in years. Getting crushed 0 - 5 by an up and coming Australia must hurt right ...yes, especially after we beat them easily at home 3 months...Have Your Say
