Australian captain Ricky Ponting said that clinching a series win in South Africa here on Tuesday was one of the highlights of his career.

Australia won the second Test by 175 runs at Kingsmead to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, bouncing straight back from losing at home against the same opponents in Australia earlier in the season.

"It's very satisfying with this group of players that we've been able to play at this same level over the last couple of weeks," said Ponting.

"We've played some amazing cricket, probably a level of cricket that everybody outside our dressing room thought we weren't capable of. This is almost as happy as I have been in my career as an Australian player."

Ponting said the team's week of preparation in the small town of Potchefstroom had been a key to their success.

He revealed he had always been confident that the team could win in South Africa despite the inexperience of many of the players.
