Ricky Ponting's emotional final match for Australia ended in defeat as South Africa wrapped up a series-clinching 309-run victory in the third Test.

The 37-year-old, who announced his retirement before the match, was caught by Jacques Kallis at slip for eight off Robin Peterson.

Set a notional 632 for victory, Australia were bowled out for 322 on the fourth evening in Perth.

The second highest run-scorer in Test history was given a guard of honour by the South Africa team as he walked to the crease, instigated by captain Graeme Smith.
