The Proteas should be lauded for capping their tour of Australia with a historic double cricket conquest over the world champions.
Going into the final one-day match on Friday with an unassailable 3-1 lead, the Proteas have done the nigh imposible: a South African team beating the Aussies in their own backyard in both the one-day and Test series.
The victory has shown that if disciplined, playing in unison and guided by a good captain, we can be a force to reckon with in world cricket.
Our other national teams should take a leaf out of these gutsy cricketers' book and show passion and commitment playing for their country.
Your heroic display has not gone unnoticed here at home.
