The South African cricket team secured a 3-0 series white wash after beating Australia by six wickets in the third and final one-day international in Potchefstroom.
Set a target of 255 for victory, the Proteas hit the winnings run with 27 deliveries remaining.
Meanwhile, Proteas opener, Janneman Malan, has been included in the squad that will travel to India for their upcoming three-match, ODI series.
South Africa won the toss and sent Australia in to bat first, a decision that paid early dividends when Anrich Nortje got rid of David Warner for four in the fifth over.
Steve Smith departed not long after that, trapped leg before wicket by Andile Phehlukwayo for 20 and debutant, Daryn Dupavillon, joined forces with David Miller to get rid of Aaron Finch for 22. Australia were on 55 for three.
The Proteas’ bowlers were on point, and the team’s fielding was superb, but Marnus Labuschagne was outstanding. While wickets were tumbling around him, Labuschagne kept his cool and scored his maiden ODI ton. His was the last wicket to fall out for 108 with the Australians finishing on 254 for seven.
In reply Quinton de Kock and Malan enjoyed a promising start but Josh Hazlewood struck in the 9th over, getting rid of the Proteas skipper for 26.
Moments later, Hazlewood did it again. Malan returned to the pavilion for 23, and with South Africa on 54 for two. Jon-Jon Smuts and Kyle Verreynne, however, got stuck in.
They added 96 runs for the third wicket, before Verreynne was out for 50 but Smuts continued where Verreynne left off. He hit 84 runs before he fell victim to Kane Richardson in the 43rd over.
Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller took the South Africans home. Klaasen hit the winnings runs in the 46th over and was unbeaten on 68. Miller was not out on 3 with victory by six wickets.
The South Africans will depart for India on Sunday.
