New Delhi:

Virender Sehwag's 372 runs -- 319 of which came in the drawn Chennai Test -- made him the highest run-getter of the three-match series against South Africa, while Man of the Series off-spinner Harbhajan Singh signed off as the numero uno bowler with 19 scalps.

Just as the series, the honours were also even in the individual performance list with the South Africans making their presence felt.

The Proteas in fact dominate both the top 10 bowling and batting lists. The batting chart has seven South Africans in the top 10 starting with Neil McKenzie, who is second with 341 runs with a highest of 155 that he scored in the first Test in Chennai.

Hashim Amla, A B de Villiers and skipper Graeme Smith complete the top five before Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid come in the latter half of the list for India.

The bowling list is no different and it's South Africa all the way after Harbhajan at the top. Pacer Dale Steyn, Makhaya Ntini, Morne Morkel and Paul Harris occupy the next four slots behind Harbhajan.

Instead of a frontline bowler, India's next best in the list is part-time spinner Virender Sehwag, who scalped six wickets in the series.
