Rampant Philander seals series for dominant South Africa

Dean Elgar's superb catch ended Tim Paine's innings as Australia battled against South Africa

"We can't hide from the fact that purely on skill they outplayed us", he said.

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.

The four Test-match series came to an end today at Johannesburg after Vernon Philander (6-21) bowled most of the visitors' batsmen out on day 5.

Philander's hat-trick ball was solidly defended by Josh Hazlewood, and the match then entered a holding pattern as Lyon and Hazlewood held off the inevitable for six overs.

"This group had a chance to show some fight and determination today and we weren't able to because mentally we weren't quite there".

Paine, backed as the nation's long-term captain by CA board member Mark Taylor, says teammates are ready to launch the next generation of Australian cricket.

"We have got some young players in our team who will learn a lot from going to have a beer with some of the experienced players in the South Africans have got. It obviously had more of an effect on the guys than we probably knew ourselves".

"We nearly went from motivated to motivated (and) angry". He said the change in team culture that had been spoken about after the scandal had already started. That will continue to happen. We've got a new coach coming in at some stage and he will have a huge say on how that is, Paine said.

The direct listing by Spotify was the largest on record, with Spotify now having a higher market value than Snap Inc. It was a 26 percent increase from the reference price set by the New York Stock Exchange on Monday at $132 a share.

"But from my point of view, we've now got a fine line between being really respectful of opposition and the game and also being at a level that is really competitive as you should be in Test match cricket". While he was dismissed for a first-ball duck in the first innings, du Plessis ensured that he didn't sign the series off with a string of low scores and scored a match-defining century in the second innings (120), combining with Dean Elgar (81) for a 170-run partnership for the fourth wicket that put the game well beyond Australia's reach.

Australia went down by a mammoth 492 runs as they head home with their tails firmly between their legs after a desperate series that looks to have done lasting damage to the team in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal. Du Plessis would also not be drawn on the future of other senior players, such as Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers and even himself.

In what could be a watershed series, they have also caused a change in the way Australia will play their cricket in the future following the ball-tampering furore for which this series will long be remembered. The opening (batting) combination got us off to a good start pretty much in every game. "Our bowling unit was exceptional".

"We were extremely motivated before this series and up for the challenge, but there was definitely a shift in mindset after that first test", du Plessis said. "They went nearly from motivated to motivated-slash-angry and they were determined to turn it around".
