It's time for us to now bid goodbye to all our viewers! This is me Anirudh Modi, signing off with my co-commentator Ninaad Dixit. Thank you for staying with us through this encounter! See you on the next one! 
Nat Sciver | England Captain: "We put that aggression with the risk of getting out but that's T20 cricket and that's exactly what we wanted, watching these guys was brilliant. It was a tricky wicket but the icing on the cake was Sophie Ecclestone. She's been hitting it well in the nets, I think everyone really did their job today. It was important to have that aggression in the power play both with bat and ball, it's just working out for us as a group and we hope that continues. People are taking chances when they get it and that's exciting. We are being able to adapt to different formats and a slightly different way we wanted to play after the 50 over World Cup. I can't think of a favorite at the moment but the important thing is that people have taken their chances and the experience of Katherine has always come in handy."
Chloe Tyron | South Africa Captain: "Yeah it was a tough day today. We had a discussion to go out and give 110%, the first ball of the game was fantastic but then we failed to keep up with the English team. We needed to stick to the basics a bit more and we will look forward to improving. It was great to be part of the test match, I was part of the 2014 squad as well but being a part of a test match is fantastic. It was a tough pill to swallow to lose that World Cup semi final, it just simple things we are doing wrong but we got a couple of days till the Commonwealth Games, so we hope to recover and start off on a good note. We want these youngsters to be playing, they have been working really hard and we are hoping they can put up their hands a bit more."
Sophie Ecclestone: "It's nice to get some runs at the end for the team. I'll stick to more such performances. Getting runs under the belt is important and so is getting the wickets for the team. The preparation for the Commonwealth games is going good, and we hope to perform good."
Sophie Ecclestone is the Player of the Match and Player of the Series! 
Time for the post match presentation ceremony. 
ENGLAND WIN BY 38 RUNS! AND DOWN SOUTH AFRICA IN THIS 3 MATCH INTERNATIONAL T20 SERIES 3-0! A battering tour for South Africa ends as they fail to win a single game! Kudos to England for being so dominant through out the series and the tour! 

It all started brilliantly for South Africa today, as Mbala managed to dismiss the dangerous Sophia Dunkley for a golden duck off the first delivery of the match, and for much of the first half of the innings they looked in touch with England despite the English top order getting starts. Mbala eventually ended her foray by picking up 3/22 from her 4 overs. 

However, England have Amy Jones and Sophie Ecclestone to thank. Amy Jones played a beautiful knock of 28 runs from 18 balls, and then came the Sophie storm. The spinner smashed Klass to all parts of the ground in the last over of the innings, to eventually score 33 runs off just 14 balls! Klass was left feeling down and out as she gave away 62 runs from her 4 overs! England eventually posted a total of 176/6 and it was all down to the South African batters to chase it down. 

South Africa lost Goodall early into the chase, as a peach of a delivery from Wong forced her to lose her middle stump in the first over. It was all downhill from there as South Africa could not keep up with the scoreboard pressure despite Tazmin Brits' valiant half-century. Freya Kemp, the 17 year old debutant eventually dismissed her for 59 runs from 57 balls and South Africa never looked in hunt there after. 

A perfect all round performance from England ensured victory and a whitewash of a hapless South African side in the series.
