Outgoing ODI skipper on his last home series, Graeme Smith was pleased with the 3-2 series win "Its terrific to sign out with the series. Wicket wasn't easy - we thought 250-260 was a really good total.
Yusuf Pathan started to middle a few and almost took it away, but we held on. We weren't as aggressive as we wanted to be when Yusuf and Zaheer were going, but otherwise we were pretty good. Rival skipper MS Dhoni sais that its "Disappointing series for the batsmen. The bowlers were getting the wickets, and getting the runs too. It was a good pitch, but we kept losing wickets. Most of us got out playing shots. Yusuf can clear most cricket fields in the world".
