Chasing an extraordinary 474, a home side were bowled out for 133, as customarily Alastair Cook (42) offering any enlarged resistance.

Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj took 3 wickets, while Chris Morris and Duanne Olivier claimed dual apiece.

The four-match array is turn during 1-1, with a third Test during The Oval commencement on 27 July.

England and new captain Joe Root have many to contemplate for that game, privately a make-up of their tip sequence and possibly or not to keep left-arm spinner Liam Dawson.

England hurl over again

A seventh improved in 10 Tests is a terrible statistic for England, nonetheless a mitigating business is that 7 of those matches were played in unknown subcontinental surroundings.

In that time, they have been incompetent to settle on a top-order choice and batting was once again their undoing in this match.

Realistically, a diversion was mislaid when they were bowled out for 205 in a initial innings, though a second-innings capitulation, in reduction than dual sessions underneath comfortable sunshine, was feeble.

Going down though a quarrel

Though a Trent Bridge aspect was display signs of wear, maybe customarily Gary Ballance can contend a conditions contributed to his demise.

Keaton Jennings was bowled by Philander, withdrawal a outrageous opening between bat and pad, while Ballance’s walk behind towards a stumps left him unprotected when a same bowler got one to keep low.

The ugliest exclusion belonged to Jonny Bairstow, who attempted to strike left-arm spinner Maharaj over a tip and was hold during mid-on.

The strokes of Moeen Ali and Stuart Broad were scarcely as poor, with both group held personification brush shots.

The final 5 wickets went down for 11 runs, a final 3 though an further to a score.

Paceman Olivier got numbers 10 and 11 – Mark Wood and James Anderson – in unbroken balls. England mislaid all 10 wickets in a space of 38.4 overs.

Captain Root bowled as England struggle

South Africa swell behind

South Africa were shamed by 221 runs in a initial Test, though looked galvanised by a lapse of captain Faf du Plessis, who was absent during Lord’s following a birth of his child.

Their batting showed larger fortify than a home side, while their bowling was relentless and penetrative.

Philander was a threat with a new ball, relying on correctness and transformation rather than pace, though a many considerable moments of a day were conjured by Morris.

Bowling with impassioned pace, he initial uprooted Root’s off branch with a withering away-swinging yorker, afterwards constructed a infamous bouncer to mislay a customarily unflappable Cook.

All of this was achieved though dangling paceman Kagiso Rabada, who will lapse during The Oval to strengthen a Proteas side that has been vastly higher in Nottingham.
