Australian Cricket Demolished

For the first time ever South Africa has defeated Australia in a test series in Australia and it's also the first series defeat for Australia on their homeground in seventeen years. The Proteas displayed the kind of fighting spirit expected of South Africans to firstly win the first test by successfully chasing the second highest total in the history of Test Cricket (415) to beat the Aussies by six wickets and then the stand of over two hundred achieved by J.P. Duminy (photo) and Dale Steyn to make it possible for South Africa to chase down a meagre 183 runs in the second innings of the second test to defeat the Aussies by two tests to none with only the test in Sydney left.
Congratulations to Graeme Smith and the boys. It was kind of a good feeling to watch the Australians sweat in a cricket match.
