Shane Warne Wants More Heads to Roll After South Africa Tour Shambles

Dean Elgar's superb catch ended Tim Paine's innings as Australia battled against South Africa

Ever since they lost the first Test in Durban, this series has belonged to the hosts as they recorded victories in Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and now Johannesburg to triumph 3-1.

The cheating scandal led to captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner losing their leadership positions, while coach Darren Lehmann resigned in tears shortly after.

Shane Warne wants a major clean-out in Australian cricket following South Africa's test series win. "It obviously had more of an effect on the guys than we probably knew ourselves".

"But we have also got some guys here who have played worldwide cricket for a very long time and they will have to step up again now that we have lost two of the best players in the world for the foreseeable future". Former Australian cricketer Shane Warne also believes that now there are a lot of questions that need answers. "But certainly, at the moment, there's a fair bit of disappointment and borderline embarrassment in our change room".

Peter Handscomb (23 not out) and Shaun Marsh (7 not out) will resume their innings on day five after bad light once again stopped play before the minimum overs required had been bowled, with Australia 3-88. "This series has been incredible the way we have put it all together", he said. With Australia starting the day at 88/3, the loss of two quick wickets ended whatever chances of a small rearguard that remained.

"It's been a really challenging week but you can't doubt the effort", Paine said in the post-match ceremony.

"This means a lot to us", South Africa captain Faf du Plessis told reporters. "The guys were really pumped after that first game".

Pernilla Lindberg could make major her first pro victory
There will be no need to bottle up the water in Poppie's Pond for dad again, should she find her way back to the winner's circle. Ayako Uehara shot a 2-under 70 on Saturday to remain five shots off the lead at the ANA Inspiration after three rounds.

After setting a seemingly impossible target of 612, South Africa proceeded to bowl Australia out for 119, with Vernon Philander running through the batting in a spectacular spell on the fifth morning on his way to returns of 6/21. No Australian made a hundred.

Perhaps the most pleasing aspect of the series, from a South African point of view, is that everybody contributed. Kagiso Rabada, Philander, Morne Morkel, Keshav Maharaj and Lungi Ngidi all delivered.

The sorry innings was brought to its conclusion when Nathan Lyon (nine) was run out.

"A lot of guys say they don't miss the game, but I'm definitely going to miss it", Morkel said. Throw in the loss of a second opening blade, two jet-lagged replacements and one badly out of touch with the willow in hand and things can pretty quickly get out of hand in much the same way they did on the final day of the fourth Test in Johannesburg.

New captain Tim Paine said during this final Test that the side wanted to produce a backs-to-the-wall performance to make the Australian public proud.

As the cricketing summer ended for South Africa, one of the country's favourite cricketers, Morne Morkel, bowed out of global cricket with 309 wickets to his name. I had that ease in my heart that [Dale] Steyn would do it and then the way Grant [Elliott] took the game away.
