On to Cape Town
Happy New Year from the BBC cricket team - let's hope from an England point of view that 2010 starts in a similar fashion to how the old one ended.
It was a highly impressive performance from England in Durban with the South African collapse on the fourth afternoon proving dramatic and ultimately decisive.
Geoff Boycott happened to be in the summariser's chair as many of those wickets fell and I'm not sure I have ever seen him so excited.
I almost had to prise him out of the seat as he turned around to beg "captain let me stay on please, I'm taking all these wickets".
Stuart Broad took six wickets as England beat South Africa in Durban
I remember in one of Stuart's first major roles for England sharing a match-winning partnership with Ravi Bopara in a one-day international at Old Trafford, Chris joined us as his son was receiving the player of the match award.
He was embarrassed when Stuart was asked during his presentation interview whether his father was at the ground watching. Stuart said to Michael Atherton: "Oh yes, he's here, wearing a terrible red jacket."
That time Chris was immensely proud although he did say that Stuart may have played in an Ashes-winning side like him, but the fact Chris had won the urn Down Under still gave him the bragging rights in the Broad household.
And at Kingsmead, Chris was watching behind us as Stuart bowled Jacques Kallis and then narrowly missed getting a hat-trick as the Test thrillingly swung in England's favour.
Considering how often Chris is away in his role as an ICC match referee it is fantastic that his visits to watch England play cricket have coincided with some of Stuart's special moments.
Although he is not always lucky - I remember coming across him at Hamilton in New Zealand where he had travelled across the world in the hope of watching Stuart play.
Unfortunately he was not selected and it was the only game Chris was out there to watch. Of course as soon as Chris left the country, Stuart was selected for the next two games at Wellington and Napier and has hardly looked back since.
There was some hearty support for Stuart Broad and his team-mates from the England fans who turned up in Durban to spend their Christmas watching the Kingsmead Test.
Lots of "Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to watch England win away." But that will be nothing compared to the following the team will be enjoying in Cape Town. We are expecting about 10,000 England fans and it is apparently sold out for at least the first two days.
As I went to the ground on New Year's Day, I bumped into a group of England fans who were desperately hoping some tickets may be left over - but I fear they will have come away disappointed.
It should be a very special atmosphere for the traditional New Year Test although England's record here is not very good while South Africa have won 14 out of their last 18 tests played at Newlands.
England prepare for the third Test at Newlands
Joining Jonathan Agnew and Gerald De Kock for the final two Tests will be Christopher Martin- Jenkins. CMJ had an eventful Christmas period with his son Robin and wife Flora producing a grand-daughter on Boxing Day... although being a "Martin-Jenkins" you won't be surprised to learn the baby turned up a few days late!
Geoff Boycott will be with us again hoping for the same kind of thrills that got him all excited in Durban while Michael Vaughan will be looking for a better experience in Cape Town than he enjoyed as a player. England suffered large defeats in his two Test matches played at Newlands.
Completing our commentary team will be local resident Duncan Fletcher who will be able to offer a unique perspective. Fletcher coached England to great success over almost 10 years, including guiding them to a series win in South Africa in 2004/2005.
But most recently, Fletcher has been working for the South Africa national side in a consultancy role and is a former coach of Western Province where he helped to nurture such talents as Jacques Kallis and Herschelle Gibbs.
As well as hearing Vaughan and Fletcher we'll also explore why the duo proved such a successful combination at the head of the England team culminating in the regaining of the Ashes in 2005.
We'll be chatting to many of those familiar names who have travelled to Cape Town, including the star of arguably England's most impressive victory abroad before last week's heroics at Kingsmead, Shaun Udal, who spun Andrew Flintoff's side to an unlikely win in Mumbai in March 2006.
The British High Commissioner, Dr Nicola Brewer, will be joining us to give advice to those travelling to South Africa both for this series and for the Fifa World Cup this summer and we'll be opening the pages of "Old Aggers Almanac" as we look ahead at 2010.
Kevin Howells will be providing updates every 15 minutes on 5 live. I feel a bit sorry for Kevin who is enjoying his first visit to Cape Town.
Since arriving in South Africa I have been telling Kevin how he'll find that the famous Table Mountain completely dominates the city. Sadly, so far the mountain has been almost totally covered by cloud , the "table cloth" as they call it here, so I don't think he believes that there really is anything to see.
It is also true that although all the iconic pictures of Newlands have Table Mountain gloriously displayed in background, when you actually walk around the ground you are struck that it's the rather ugly brewery next door which is the main site that you see.
