In the most thrilling fashion, Australia claimed a dramatic victory in the third Test at Cape Town on Wednesday to clinch an exhilarating series win over South Africa.
After being outplayed for close to four days, the home side fought with tremendous will to survive almost a day and a half against Australia's vicious attack, falling an agonising 27 balls short of saving the match in Graeme Smith's final Test appearance.
For Australia, the series-clinching victory wraps up an emphatic summer of cricket in which they've triumphed in seven of eight matches, returning to the sort of dominance associated with the nation's rich cricketing history.
Michael Clarke's Test unit will now look forward to expected clashes with Pakistan and India towards the end of 2014, eyeing the chance to potentially return to the top of the ICC's Test Rankings.
