Tahir has done his job anyway, acting was not required

Congrat SA. Back to nr. 1.

Well done Philender and Amla.

Goodbye to a Sri Lankan Legend. A class player. Will be missed by SL.

could be ramadan catching up with Tahir there

wow South Africa get to #1 by blocking out a rain affected day and wasting time. typical South African style!

Sri Lankan spinners arent all that. just steady, not much more.

They have a newish team now, but ranking are not about today, it about general record over the years, They are truly a no 1 side, they have won at home and away very consistently over the past few years. Congrats Saffers !!! Dont remember a single bad series lose over last 5 years.

I feel Lankans are robbed off a deserved win.

Amla deserved the MoM.

But maybe Lankans are senti now - and think this might be Mahela's last contribution. :-)

If rain hadn't interfered, SL were winning this and levelling the series.

Having said that, like Ankur says, SA are deserving No.1 guys.

They've not had one really bad series as long as I can remember.

I'm with Ankur, South Africa continually perform in all conditions. Winning this series without Smith and Kallis was certain to be a big challenge and they did it. Well done. Australia only went to #1 because they played what was previously a really good England team that was no longer really good (or even good) and had it was 5 matches against them.

Agree with most. SL deserved to win, but SA deserve the number 1 spot. Philander earns his place yet again with a match-saving lower-order contribution. All he has to do is work on his bowling a bit and one day he, too, can dream of being as good as Bhuvneshwar.
