Proteas win test series 1-nil after drawn third test

5:56 am on 28 March 2012

21 year old Kane Williamson defied the South Africa's fearsome pace attack yesterday to scored his second test century and salvage a draw in the third and final test of the series at the Basin Reserve.

The Proteas won the series 1-nil but the Black Caps vice captain Brendan McCullum doesn't believe the result flattered the home side as there were times during the series they had the better of the team popularly rated the best in the world.

NZ finished on 200 for 6 yesterday, all six wickets falling to Morne Morkel who was named player of the match.
