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.
After much deliberation, it has been decided that Mohammad Hafeez is this week's Cricket World Player of the Week. At first glance, it may not be an obvious choice, but, in each of the matches that Pakistan played last week, Hafeez made a more than useful contribution.
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.

It is the absorbing second Test match between New Zealand and India in Bangalore that provides this week's winner. Ross Taylor hit a sublime 113 in the visitors' total of 365, but that effort was bettered by Virat Kohli, who scored 154 runs across two innings to help India to a series clean sweep.
John Pennington assesses some of the arguments he's seen surrounding the identity of Andrew Strauss's successor at the top of the order. South Africa measure their rate of progress and development between cycles of series between them and Australia. Increasingly, England are being forced to rebuild after each home Test series against the Proteas.
The retirement of Andrew Strauss announced in a press conference today will inevitably spark questions about the door opening for Kevin Pietersen's reintroduction to the international set-up; a door which had previously appeared closed for the significant future, writes John Pryor.
This week John Pryor looks back through time at some of the most famous dropped catches in cricket history. The number one Test match ranking changed hands in dramatic fashion this weekend; needing to win the final match of the series versus South Africa in order to hold on to top spot England went into the final day still needed 329 runs with only eight wickets remaining. Sadly for the home side it was not to be and they fell just 51 runs short of their target. Understandably, areas in which England failed to perform have been highlighted within the England setup and in the media.
