Cricketers pay homage to SA cricket legend Morne Morkel

Before falling Markram became the second quickest batsman to get to 1000 Test runs- in terms of number of days from debut

South Africa completed their first home series win over the demoralised visitors since 1970 as Proteas seamer Morne Morkel bowed out from global cricket on a high.

South Africa pace bowler Vernon Philander took a career-best 6-21 on the fifth day of the fourth Test in Johannesburg to not only lead his side to a 492-run win over Australia, but also ensure fellow seamer Morne Morkel had a ideal swansong. Sometimes as an overseas coach, you don't know how you're going to be received coming into a new environment.

File: South African team celebrates winning the fifth Test cricket match between South Africa and Australia and the Test Series against Australia for the first time since re admission at Wanderers cricket ground.

Following a 2-1 series win at home to India, it ends a successful summer for Ottis Gibson and his men. Injury to Ngidi ahead of the third Test brought Morkel back, and boy did he leave a big impression on the match! Du Plessis said different players had contributed at stages throughout the series.

"Our bowling unit was exceptional‚ all of them‚ as a batting unit there we guys who chipped in and we never felt that we were under pressure".

You will be missed", and Joss Whedom said, "Absolutely one of the biggest influences on Buffy (and me) was HILL STREET BLUES . One of the most valuable lessons I ever had. "I want to justify the enormous commitment they ( ABC ) have made to me".

Australia were in tatters at 95/6, and it didn't get any better. It's a proud captain standing here.

He has, after all, seen more balls than anyone else in this series, so if anyone should have more runs, it is him. "I could feel all 11guys were really motivated to make a play in this series".

Also at Newlands‚ Australia's plot to tamper with the ball by roughening it with sandpaper was exposed and Steve Smith‚ Warner and Cameron Bancroft were banned by Cricket Australia and sent home in disgrace.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "It's been a really challenging week".

Paine, backed as the nation's long-term captain by CA board member Mark Taylor, says teammates are ready to launch the next generation of Australian cricket. When you are slightly off against world-class opposition, you are going to be found wanting.

Sessions says no new special counsel yet for Republican concerns
Huber was appointed in 2015 by President Barack Obama, and reappointed a year ago by President Donald Trump . Republicans are also likely to be upset with what amounts to the Justice Department investigating itself.

He achieved career-best figures of six for 21 and surpassed 204 Test wickets, ending the series on 204. It is very important because you ultimately want to play for 10 to 15 years and you have to have some sort of plan.

That meant Australia's 118-run win, nine wickets apiece from Mitchell Starc and Keshav Maharaj, and young Aiden Markram's dogged fight on the fourth day slid into the background. And maybe he would have thought of how many runs he might be able to score as well.

"Its an exciting time, we are going to have a new coach and a new brand and culture", Paine told reporters after the 492-run fourth test loss on Tuesday, the fourth largest defeat in terms of runs in Test history. "If we do I think we'll be OK".

But that burst was as good as it got for Australia, the match-long litany of bad luck continuing as Temba Bavuma and Vernon Philander batted through to tea in flighty fashion for 35 and 33 respectively.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp pessimistic about Adam Lallana injury
The rest of the first half was not much better with Liverpool looking frustrated and poor in possession. Referee Neil Swarbrick, though, saw it differently.
