The South African team were an elated lot at the end of their three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against New Zealand after they recorded a comfortable 62-run win in the final match at Durban to complete a 2-1 series win. The hosts, as a result, decided to release a video through their official YouTube Channel Proteas Cricket, featuring interviews of members of the team such as Kyle Abbott, David Miller, skipper AB de Villiers, David Wiese, coach Russell Domingo among several others. South Africa take a major boost from the series win, especially when it came against the side that caused their exit in the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

Earlier during the tour, the Black Caps shared the honours of the two-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series with the Proteas after winning the second game at Centurion by 32 runs, with the series drawn 1-1. South Africa posted a total of 304 for 7 in the first one-dayer, held at the same venue thanks to a century by Hashim Amla. The visitors were struggling for the most part during their innings, before a late cameo saw them finish 21 runs short of the target. The Black Caps managed to level the series in dominant style, with Martin Guptill slamming an unbeaten century to help his side chase the lowly 205-run target with nine wickets and a plenty of overs to spare.

South Africa won the toss in the final ODI, and were propelled by half-centuries by AB de Villiers and Morne van Wyk to finish on 283 for 7. New Zealand, in reply, lost the early wicket of Guptill. Kane Williamson and Tom Latham built a solid second-wicket partnership, which was increasingly looking threatening for the South Africans. Eventually, a couple of key dismissals by Imran Tahir, followed by a three-wicket haul by Wiese caused the Kiwis to collapse, eventually leading to a comfortable win for the hosts.
