To be fair to SA, Maharaj and Paterson's last week stand of, I think, 99 put up stubborn performances to delay England.

But a comprehensive win and some credible performance from the England boys

Would have been done sooner but Root wanted his fifer

South Africa clearly have major batting deficiencies to be turned over by a newcomer spinner and a part time spinner on their own patch. Can you imagine how we would feel if the roles were reversed?

Nonetheless we posted a proper total for the first time in a long time and that gave us the platform to expose their weaknesses so well done England on that front, keep posting totals!

Woakes in for Bess - Archer out injured.

Good start from the openers - 50 for Crawley.

I was watching this Morning when the cameras panned to an Albion fan sitting in the crowd! They moved the cameras then went back to him sitting in his Albion shirt fair play.

South Africa
First innings 183 all out

England
First innings 400 all out
Second innings 248 all out

Close - England lead South Africa by 465 runs

England odds on to win the match and, with it, the series. A solid all round team performance so far

Broken rib. Would be much more concerned were it muscular. Sadly without him that's probably the end of our hopes for the series.
You were saying...…..

Excellent series win and some really promising players coming through to give us hope for the future. I know South Africa are going through a poor time but it is never easy winning a series abroad so well done to the team.

Yes, a few wrote them off on here and have been keeping a low profile of late.

And your right, some very promising performance from a few of the young "guns"

Very good series win in the end, South Africa are in disarray though, couldn't really envisage a team than won the first test so easily being undone by the likes of Bess and Root. Our batting just managed to hold things together despite it's obvious shortcomings in the top 4...


Hopefully gives them confidence for a vastly different prospect in Sri Lanka.

Foakes and Jennings recalled for the Sri Lanka tour. Archer and Anderson miss out with injury

Hopefully Foakes replaces Butler.

**** poor final over management in the first T20.


Only needed singles after the 2 off the first. Pathetic batting.

Staggering mate. Threw it away.

Morgan did all the hard work then threw it away at the end.

I’d have also sent Mark Wood ahead of Rashid..

I do think that there should be a separate thread for T20 stuff, rather than it being in the England cricket thread. Only my opinion, of course, but I just cannot accept that T20 is cricket; it is a baseball style slog fest. Horrible. I love cricket, proper cricket, test matches and county cricket. One day cricket was good until players were put into pyjamas. Too many people have too short attention spans, why does a game have to be over after a combined 40 overs? Test cricket, to my mind is the ultimate team game.

Glad to see Buttler do well. He's come in for a lot of stick recently but he is still our most destructive white ball cricketer, in my humble opinion.

What a series.

Toss delayed by rain.

Strong rumours of Stuart Broad being dropped. Poor decision if true.
