Du Plessis delighted with South Africa's 'remarkable' series fightback

"But, I think it has got to the stage now where we need to listen to our fans and Australian public and give them a cricket team that they are proud of".

Former captain Steve Smith and ex-vice captain Warner were suspended for 12 months and batsman Cameron Bancroft received a nine-month ban for their roles in using sandpaper on the ball during the third Test against South Africa. I try and take the pressure off in the dressing room because there's enough of that out on the field.

But at the Wanderers the Aussies‚ just a few days ago cricket's ugliest team‚ have been out-New Zealanding the New Zealanders‚ officially cricket's nicest team. "I enjoyed everything", an emotional Morkel said in his final press conference.

A review showed Lyon to be short as De Kock removed the bails, a woeful ending that summed up Australia's day, Test and series. You don't always get an opportunity to beat Australia 3-1.

"It's exciting for a new group that we can start to rebuild a new culture and hopefully perform a hell of a lot better than we did in this Test match". "It's one of the challenges that you are faced with as a player to make sure that everything goes as you would like it to go".
