Proteas celebrate series whitewash against New Zealand

Fast bowlers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel used the second new ball to devastating effect as the Proteas completed victory by an innings and 197 runs on the fourth day of the second and final Test against New Zealand at St George's Park.

Steyn took 3-48 and Morne 2-36 as New Zealand were bowled out for 211 and the pair needed only a combined 34 deliveries to take the last five wickets.

Man of the match Steyn took 5-17 in the first innings to end with match figures of 8-65. New Zealand were bowled out half an hour before lunch in what was the Black Caps’ second heavy defeat in the two-Test series after they lost the first match in Cape Town by an innings and 27 runs inside three days.

The win consolidated South Africa's position at the top of the world rankings.
