The trophy is handed over to the Temba Bavuma, he hands it over to his team mates and his teammates pose for a group picture. 
Temba Bavuma(South Africa Skipper): " Yeah, I think looking at the way the series started, they put us under a lot of pressure. We had a discussion with the bowling group, and after the second game we had a discussion regarding the character of the team. It was more of the personality that we had to take a look at, that brought a lot of confidence in the team.

We also know that, on the given day anyone in the team can do for us. We need to create a good momentum going into the World Cup. I just had a conversation with Aiden, the first two games didn't go our way. In the first game we had an opportunity to get over the line, in the second game we just didn't rock up.

We did it in the third game. We started on the back foot, but we did it well in the end, we have a good bunch of resilient people. I think the confidence that we have gained from this series is something that you are not gonna lose, we need to utilize this confidence. For me, it's like every single individual in the team needs to have a belief."
Aiden Markram (Player of the Series): "Yeah, it's a weird one because you can't always sort of guarantee performances but our batting unit over the last twelve to 18 months has been doing nicely. 

Honestly, not just yet, no. You're still trying to balance that positive mindset and taking the game on with responsibility, taking it deep, wanting to be there at the end. But I suppose after each game you take lessons and you try not to make the same mistakes that you do. we take the experiences as we have this series and hopefully, the longer we keep playing, we get that blueprint nice and sharp. I managed to contribute towards the team and that for me is personally very satisfying. 

[Speaking about bowling in India] Yeah, in the ideal word not. But I mean, if it's spinning, then I'd like to be able to do a job for the side. So it's a work in progress as well. But we sort of take it game by game and day by day and from a training point of view and try to sort of up that skill as well."
Player of the Series: Aiden Markram
Marco Jansen(Player of the Match): " It is obviously a good feeling, not too many days we can cash in with the bat and ball, today was a good day, good to contribute to the team. This time of performance gives us confidence as a player, I would like to continue to play like this, it's not an easy task though. I don't often get to bat, so I enjoyed the batting today. Yeah, it's different conditions in India, I need to just adapt the conditions there quickly and perform well."
Player of the Match: Marco Jansen
Mitch Marsh (Australia Captain): "Yes, certainly a missed opportunity. We've certainly been challenged over the last three games with a few guys going down and managing guys going into a big World Cup, but ultimately we fell short with the bat the last couple of games. Certainly one day cricket, it's all about partnerships. We like a few partnerships to get us over the line, but all in all, still a lot of positives to take, we played some great cricket the first couple of games and unfortunately, South Africa went over the line today. 

Yeah, we'll have to probably sit down and go through that. We have an ODI game on Friday in India. We'll have some guys coming back. Know, we certainly wanted to be nice and aggressive at the top of the then, yeah, I guess we lost our way a little bit, but really proud of the way we've gone about it. 

We fought hard today. We have Sean Abbott go down, and Nathan Ellis go down towards the back end, but as I said, we really just like the big partnership there today to get us over the line. 
 I think we probably just lacked the ability to take wickets upfront. They got off to reasonable starts every innings and we were under the pump towards the back end. Certainly, when they got those bigger total, you know, also, hats off to South Africa, they played incredibly well. They put us under a lot of pressure, they batted really well the last couple of games and we weren't able to chase those big scores. 

So, as I said, we leave here. We've had a great tour to South Africa. Unfortunately, we couldn't get over the line, but there's a big World Cup in front of us and, yeah, we're looking forward to that."
Time for the post-series presentation ceremony!!!
20:34 IST, 17:04 Local Time| South Africa has once again outshone Australia, securing victory by a convincing 122-run margin and clinching the series 3-2. Marco Jansen, the standout performer, dazzled with a stellar all-around display. He played a magnificent role with the bat and then showcased his prowess with the ball, taking 5 crucial wickets. 

Earlier in the game, Australian skipper Mitchell Marsh won the toss and invited South Africa to bat first. While batting first South Africa, e
ncountered an early setback when skipper Temba Bavuma was run out for a duck. The opening partnership of Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen managed to contribute 34 runs before de Kock was dismissed for 27 by Nathan Ellis.

Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram then combined to anchor the innings with a partnership exceeding 100 runs. However, Rassie's innings came to an end when Sean Abbott dismissed him for 30.

Heinrich Klaasen, the standout performer in the previous match, struggled this time, scoring only 6 runs. Aiden Markram continued to build a strong innings and fell just short of a century, departing for 93 after being caught by Tim David.

Marco Jansen brought some quick runs with a blistering 47 off 23 balls, while David Miller reached 63 runs before getting out. South Africa lost wickets quickly towards the end, but Andile Phehlukwayo's explosive unbeaten 39 guided them to a total of 315/9 in their allotted 50 overs.

Australia's Adam Zampa impressed with the ball, taking three crucial wickets, and Sean Abbott contributed with two. Cameron Green, Nathan Ellis, and Tim David claimed one wicket each for Australia.

Australia, chasing a target of 316 runs, got off to a disastrous start as they lost their opener David Warner in the 4th over. In the same over, Josh Inglis departed for a duck, putting Australian batters under immense pressure. Marco Jansen was the key contributor, taking both these early wickets.

The responsibility then shifted to skipper Mitchell Marsh and Marnus Labuschagne. Marsh took on the role of the aggressor, while Labuschagne played the supporting role. This duo effectively managed the required run-rate and built a partnership of 90 runs for the 3rd wicket.

South Africa reintroduced Marco Jansen into the attack to break this partnership, which he did successfully. In the 20th over, he dismissed Mitchell Marsh after a solid 71-run contribution. In the 22nd over, Jansen struck again, sending both Marnus Labuschagne (44 runs) and Alex Carey (2 runs) back to the pavilion.

As the innings progressed, the Australian wickets continued to fall like a house of cards, culminating in their eventual capitulation for a total of 200 runs.

Marco Jansen emerged as the star performer among South Africa's bowlers, claiming an impressive 5 wickets. Keshav Maharaj made a significant contribution with 4 wickets, while Andile Phehlukwayo added one more wicket to the tally.

South Africa have won this series by 3-2. Austalia whitewashed the T20I series but the Proteas bounced back pretty well and have won the ODI series.

Stay tuned with us as we will be back with the post-series presentation ceremony in a short while.

W WICKET! CAUGHT! That's it, Australia are bundled out for 193 runs and once again they are skittled under 35 overs, three times in a row. What a turnaround from the Proteas, from losing the first two games to winning the 5-match series 3-2. 

Coming to the dismissal now, flatter delivery around off-stump line. Zampa hangs back and looks to punch it through the covers but  fails to keep it along the ground and Bavuma at short extra covers, who dives forward and takes a good low catch.
