Quinton de Kock
Leading the table of highest run scorers, de Kock has scored 252 runs in three innings of two Tests. He averages 84, enough to speak about his dominance in the current Test series. Extraordinary performance from the left-hander opener earned his team the second consecutive win in the ongoing Test series. If the-man-of-the-series is to be awarded based of batting performance, de Kock has no one around to negate or challenge him.
Rabada, the man of the match in Perth Test, tops the table of leading wicket takers for his 12 wickets, with one more match remaining. Rabada turned a rather ruthless pacer all at once in the first Test, eventually helping his team record a 177-run win over the home side. No wonder if Kagiso Rabada's wickets in Australia Vs South Africa Test series earn him the man of the series award too.
Philander has enjoyed quite the lauds for his all-round performance in the ongoing Test series against Australia. Apart from just being in the top three wicket takers, Rabada has also come good with the bat in the ongoing Test series. He has taken 10 wickets so far in the series, and is looking more in the last match. He has been impressive with bat as well. Philander's runs in Australia Vs South Africa Test series count 115.
The one who joined the squad in the second Test, Kyle Abbott proved himself worthy of the expectations South Africans reposed in him in the absence of Dale Steyn. He made the most of every opportunity that came his way in the second Test at Hobart. He picked up 9 wickets 3 in the first innings and 6 in the second. His lethal bowling display earned him the man of the match award. Abbott, in all probability, has the chance to become the man of the series in Australia Vs South Africa Test series 2016.
