England completed their summer with a 28-run win - and a convincing one at that - over South Africa in the third and final Twenty20 International at Edgbaston.
Just as it had at Old Trafford, the game was reduced due to rain but here it was played to its conclusion and England's score of 118 for five in 11 overs proved well beyond the Proteas.
On a frustrating evening for players and spectators alike, the second Twenty20 International between England and South Africa was abandoned as a no result with just five more balls required to confirm a legitimate match.
This came despite the game being reduced to nine overs per side following a prolonged spell of rain that delayed the start by two hours, after which South Africa reached 77 for five.
The opening Twenty20 International between England and South Africa followed a similar pattern to that which the final One-Day International had on Wednesday. England posted a much below par total after batting first; took three early wickets to provide false hope; and then watched as South Africa plodded home with time and wickets to spare.
South Africa and England tied their One-Day International series 2-2 after South Africa pulled off a seven-wicket win in the fifth and final match at Trent Bridge.
After England batted poorly to be bowled out for 182, they hit back with three quick wickets but Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers guided South Africa home with an unbroken 172-run stand for the fourth wicket.
England completed a six-wicket victory over South Africa to move into an unassailable 2-1 lead in the One-Day International series at Lord's.
Another impressive performance in the fourth match saw them hold South Africa to 220 for eight at the home of cricket before chasing down their target with more than three overs to spare.
A batting collapse cost South Africa a par score in the second ODI at The Oval. England then chased down the 212 that they needed for victory with relative ease to retake the number one ranking.
South Africa had got off to an excellent start after winning the toss and electing to bat, with Hashim Amla, again in fine form, and Graeme Smith putting on 50 for the first-wicket. Amla played the dominant hand and was at his fluent best, and while he and Smith were at the crease South Africa looked like they could make 300.
