There hadn’t been an instance of the World champions getting whitewashed in both the formats, before Australia got thrashed by hosts South Africa in a 5 to nil one-day international series loss, after getting whitewashed by Sri Lanka 3-0 in tests in the previous month.

Australia’s last ODI whitewash was a 4-0 loss to England in 2012. South Africa became the first team to whitewash Australia 5-0 in a one-day international series despite a magnificent innings of 173 from David Warner in the final ODI. Defeat means the captain, Steve Smith, has now lost nine of his past 11 matches in charge of the national team.

Immediate effect of the loss could be seen on the twitter, as twitterati took charge to mock Australians post the series defeat. Here are some famous tweets:
