The Proteas, thanks to a superb Vernon Philander (6/21), has cruised to victory in the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Wanderers.
Captain Faf du Plessis reserved praise for Vernon Philander after the bowler inspired a 492-run victory over Australia in the fourth Test in Johannesburg.
The hosts won by a staggering 492 runs - Australia were bowled out for 119 - on Day 5 to bring the curtain down on a series that was marred by controversy from start to finish, but will be remembered for decades.
The tourists were bowled out for 119 in pursuit of a fanciful 612 victory target after Philander bulldozed their batting line-up on the final morning with figures of six for South Africa.
It's amazing, it's amazing. It's amazing. It's amazing. It's amazing.
Philander was unplayable on the day and took six wickets in 32 balls, but the series was so much more.
David Warner and Quinton de Kock had their infamous stairwell altercation in Durban, Kagiso Rabada brushed shoulders with Steve Smith and was suspended in Port Elizabeth before the Newlands was Australia's left disgraced incident.
