PRETORIA (Reuters) - Debutant Kyle Abbott took nine wickets as South Africa completed a 3-0 series sweep over Pakistan with a crushing innings and 18 run victory in the third and final Test at Centurion on Sunday.

Abbott was the pick of the South African seamers on a helpful wicket, recording match figures of nine for 68.

Pakistan were bowled out for 235 in their second innings, having managed 156 in their first in reply to South Africa's 409.

The result cements South Africa's position as the No. 1 Test team in the world.
