South Africa has done it! They have beaten the Australians in the 2nd test and have won the series. It is there first-ever series against Australia.
Smith's marvellous 75 had set South Africa well on the way to their target of 183 and a series win for the first time in nine tours of Australia. Fellow opener Neil McKenzie can also take a bow. Batting under obvious pressure, McKenzie has made just 37 of the 132 runs, but the calm manner in which he has battled through his loss of form while helping to lay the sturdiest of platforms for the fourth-innings run-chase has spoken volumes for the temperament of the man.
Smith and McKenzie needed another 153 runs at the start of a hazy day that had featured rain earlier in the morning.
SA becomes the first country to defeat Australia at home after 16 years! The Aussies have dominated for long but looks like there time is over and they are completely shattered. This is a historic victory for SA and the SA team has done it in style.
I do see the Indians smiling for some reason!
