Speechless: Debutant Cummins wins man of the match (Jborg)

Captain Michael Clarke hailed the "amazing" talents of paceman Pat Cummins, 18, after the debutant kept cool to secure a nerve-jangling two-wicket win for Australia in the second and final test.

Cummins was named Man of the Match and said "Mitch asked me to keep a cool head, and I took that for swinging".South African captain Graeme Smith admitted that the top order batsmen had let good positions slip in both innings.South African opening bowler Vernon Philander, who had five-wicket hauls in both his first two Test appearances, was named man-of-the series.
