Philander's six-fer bowls Proteas to historic Test series win over Aussies

Vernon Philander returned career-best figures of 6-21 as South Africa swiftly wrapped up the fourth Test against Australia on the final day in Johannesburg to cruise to a 3-1 series win. Five balls later, he hit Sayers over his head for four and three balls after that, pulled him in front of square for four more.

Elgar played the odd slog in between more defence: he would eventually face 180 dot balls, an entire session's worth of deliveries, yet still raised his 50 off Mitchell Marsh with a hoicked six.

"That was wonderful that Vernon did that", man-of-the-series Kagiso Rabada said after the Test match. Morkel wicketlessPhilander took six wickets for three runs in 32 balls to carve through the tourists and keep fellow seamer Morne Morkel (two for 28) wicketless on his final morning of global cricket before his retirement.

The final scenes of this vituperative series involved joy and disappointment, but also handshakes and congratulations, the way Test cricket should be.

"We have lost two of the best players in the world [Steve Smith and David Warner], while Cameron Bancroft was our leading run scorer in the series".

The comments came as Ireland became the 24th country to join the the United Kingdom in diplomatic action against the Kremlin. In retaliation, Moscow expelled an equal number of British diplomats and closed a British consular mission.

"That would have motivated him more, made him hungrier to stay out there and fight through the pain".

"That's his character when he's batting". "There was probably some noise being made from the public in the previous year or so and the guys thought maybe while we kept winning and playing a certain brand of cricket, while it was working we wouldn't change it". You can never stop learning, the game finds a way to humble you.

Australian stomachs plummeted through the floor when Renshaw was given out first ball.

"I'm not here to tell them how to play their cricket".

And when Nathan Lyon was run out, following a ball from the retiring Morne Morkel, it brought a dismal end to Darren Lehmann's time in charge of the tourists. "I think it was important for someone to drive it home by spending some time at the crease", Elgar said.

Facebook Stops Playing Hide-And-Seek With Its Privacy Settings
Now, instead of having the settings spread across 20 different pages, Facebook has now condensed them all to a single page. Facebook apparently still plans to launch them later this year, though they may undergo some changes first.

With Smith and Warner out of the Australian side for the next 12-months, just where the runs are going to come from remain the greatest unknown.

Australia were mentally affected by the ball-tampering scandal of the third Test against South Africa as they slumped to a 3-1 series defeat, according to stand-in captain Tim Paine. They are massive shoes to fill, and the beanpole says the jury is still out.

Lyon got Elgar the next over, top-edging a slog for a swirling catch to Shaun Marsh at mid-off for 81, but the batsman had faced 250 balls.

The visitors started day one at the bottom of the barrel, and they were outplayed over all five days. "Strike rotation was quite tough and I just had to adopt a very simple gameplan. I wanted to get better every time and I wanted to prove people wrong". "We all know there were a lot of incidents in this series, but after each day I would sit in the dressing-room and sense that there was a calmness to our emotions and we were really just focused on winning games of cricket".
