South Africa dealt sporting rivals Australia a moerse bekskoot this past weekend by getting the better of their foes on both rugby and cricket fields.
It was the national cricket team that got the party started on Friday when the Proteas beat Steve Smith and his manne by six wickets with 82 balls left after Quinton de Kock smashed 178 off just 113 balls in the first ODI of the series.
Then it was Morné Steyn’s turn to take the limelight as he kicked all of the Springboks’ 18 points in their 18-10 win over the Wallabies.
And yesterday, the Proteas completed the 3-0 weekend whitewash when they made it 2-0 in the five-match ODI series, beating Oz by 142 runs.
Captain Faf du Plessis stood tall with his knock of 111 off 93 balls to help SA to 361/6.
JP Duminy, too, did well adding 82 off 58 balls.
The Aussies never looked in it and ultimately fell 142 runs short after being bowled out for 219, with Wayne Parnell (3/40) starring with the ball.
Skipper and man of the match Faf says: “I’d go almost as far as saying that was the perfect batting and bowling performance. We put big runs up and our bowlers were exceptional.”
