The Proteas' ODI series victory over Pakistan on Sunday completed the most successful and star-studded period of 12 months in Cricket South Africa's (CSA) international history according to a CSA Press Release.
There is still lots of room for improvement in both the limited overs formats where the Proteas had a 6-6 record in ODI's and a 5-6 record in T20 International matches but the individual and team performances and statistics tell their own story.
Indeed, at one stage the Proteas held the No. 1 ranking for a brief period in all formats of the game. They won six out of eight Tests and drew the other two to claim and keep the much cherished No. 1 ranking in Test cricket. With their nearest challengers, England and Australia, both having suffered setbacks elsewhere, they have now established a 14-point lead at the top of the table.
