Am historic win to rank alongside the Rugby World Cup win for the South Africans. Ponting's team was beaten badly in the final analysis. Hard to believe that RSA was 198-7 at one stage.

What a win! Smith and his team have dethroned the previously unbeatable Aussies in style...after coming from behind. Well done.
