South Africa beat Australia by those 492 runs in the fourth Test, marking the fourth-biggest victory by any team in terms of runs in the 2,302 matches yet played in the format. "Who else have we got to take their position?" "It might be a coffee".

"I thought we were going to be a hell of a lot better than what we were". There was little batting resistance and that only lasted 16.4 overs, adding just 31 runs.

Meanwhile, it is also South Africa's first-ever home Test series win over Australia their re-admission in 1991 - and the first since Ali Bacher's iconic team of 1969-70.

"This means a lot to us", South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said.

Australia peppered South Africa with verbals in that match, during which Nathan Lyon was charged by the match referee for his "disrespectful" ball drop celebration after completing Warner's run out of de Villiers.

"It is going to be a different style than a lot of the guys are used to, but I think we will find it pretty quickly".

Pat Cummins - who had nine wickets and a half-century in the match - has proven himself to be a very capable lower-order batsman, but his premature arrival at the crease was testament to South Africa's excellent start to the final day.

A strong cold front looks to pass through the area bringing us a good chance for showers and even a few strong to severe storms. Despite the snow coming to an end, sloppy road conditions will continue into the morning hours and impact the morning commute.

The meek surrender, which came after Paine fought incredibly hard on day three while batting with a broken thumb, capped one of Australia's most-incredible tours.
