South Africa’s 204-run win at Centurion was enough to clinch the series and see them move from No 7 to No 5 on the ICC Test rankings.

New Zealand’s defeat has seen them slip two places to seventh.

The Proteas are now on 96 points, while Sri Lanka and New Zealand are at 95 points each. However, the Sri Lankans are ranked above the Black Caps in sixth place when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point.

ICC Test rankings:

1. Pakistan 111
2. India 110
3. Australia 108
4. England 108
5. South Africa 96
6. Sri Lanka 95
7. New Zealand 95
