The Best Bowler award for today goes to Vernon Philander. The Best Performer of the Series Award goes to Dale Steyn for his five-fer in the fourth game. The Circle Player(best fielder) in the tournament goes to Faf du Plessis.

Pakistan who are known to fight hard in the conditions in UAE which offers slow pitches that assist their bowlers more than other sides. South Africa adapted well after the second game and ensured that their batting did not collapse. Pakistan failed to do the same and that is where they lost the series to Pakistan. South Africa had not had a great year in ODIs, but this performance will get that record trapped way back in memories.

South Africa have played brilliantly today, with bat and ball both. They blistered away to a stiff score of 268/7 in the first innings and bowled with the usual heart, forcing Pakistan to submit for just 151. Pakistan have exhibited yet another shabby performance with the bat. As usual, some of the batsmen showed glimpses of performances but failed to build on from there on.
