The trophy has been presented to Faf du Plessis, who collects it and poses with the team for the group photograph. Zimbabwe can hold their heads high, they have fought bravely in all three games. If only their batting had clicked, the scoreline would've been different. Another trophy added to the cabinet for South Africa. They still need to fix their batting problems, especially their top-order. I am sure they will ponder about it. Anyway, time to pull the curtains for today. The T20I series between both these two teams begin in a three days' time from now. Join us back for that. It's time to bid adieu for now from here. See ya all and goodnight!
Faf, South African captain: Our bowling was good in all three games. First two games, the conditions were tough to bat on. The guys played well today. Should've been more sensible not to throw wickets at the end. We try to keep looking ahead and making sure we give a longer run to the new guys. Australia is the next ODI tour for us and which will probably be the 15-16 guys that we will be looking at towards the WC. Exciting times ahead, I haven't played T20s for a while. So, looking forward to unleash.
Tahir, Man of the Series: Pleased the way it's coming out. I am trying to improve my game. I am happy with the way I bowled in this series. I want to play as long as I can and I am enjoying the game. I think it's an opportunity for youngsters to play more games. I don't take things for granted. I think the six-wicket haul was the highlight because I wasn't aware about the hat-trick. Want to thank my team-mates for the support.
Klaasen, Man of the Match: I think the team played fantastically well. I am starting to enjoy my cricket. Fantastic wicket, I enjoyed it and hopefully, we can get more wickets like these. I need to put more effort, but I can't complain (laughs).
Masakadza, Zimbabwe captain: We just weren't good enough across all three games, lot of work to be done. It was a beautiful batting wicket, lot of starts but none could convert them. Needed to put more runs on the board, around 50 or 60 more. I think we are a bit stronger in the T20Is and we are looking forward to it.
20:46 Local Time: In the end, South Africa huff and puff their way to victory. Handshakes and smiles in the dressing room. Zimbabwe can been proud of their effort today with the bat after the failure in the first two matches. Although it wasn't enough in the end, but they have fought tooth and nail. South Africa stuttered a bit in the middle, but Klaasen showed good composure and with the help of Zondo, the Proteas have knocked down the target with 25 balls to spare. Markram and Hendricks provided a fine start with a 75-run opening stand. However, after the former's exit, skipper Faf du Plessis - who was looking so good threw his wicket away to Mavuta and that allowed Zimbabwe to claw back into the contest. The Proteas lost Klaasen and Phehlukwayo towards the end, but Steyn and Khaya Zondo made sure there were no more hiccups. Wait for the presentations..
