Good win by england really convincing. I know SA are struggling but what impressed me was the batting, sibley and pope scoring hundreds in the last 2 tests against what is still a good bowling line up (SAs batting on the other hand is awful) is awesome. Both lads under 25 showing promise and dom bess also at 22 getting a 5 fa. We finally showed the value of batting time rather then trying to blast it which has got us in all sorts over the last 4 years.

England win by an innings and 53 runs, it is their 150th away win in test match cricket. 2-1 up now, this is the first time since 1957 that England have won successive tests in South Africa.

I wouldn't get too carried away with Bess mate, he couldn't get one in the second dig while Root took 4.

I just watched the highlights and wow what a f**king win! Australia won on the last ball of the match chasing 252, at one point the Aussies were almost gone at 7/189 as they lost 5/36 in 13 overs in a middle order collapse due to the English spinners. Australia needed 40 off the last 3 overs with fast bowler Connor Sully hitting 35 from 20 balls along with Todd Murphy making 16 from 10 as their 9th wicket partnership saw Australia home.

Yeah - just saw that as well. That was unbelievable. Poor Poms - Lloyd Pope got them last time and now they've been knocked out again by Aus.

The Zim/SL test match ended last night, was a great last day, another reason why 4 day test matches won't work.

First 4 days had 19 wickets fall, 10 wickets fell on Day 5 for SL to just get over the line.

Pakistan would wipe the floor with the Saffers home or away. I’d hate to see what India or Australia would do to them. Dead set rubbish and wouldn’t get near a few domestic Australian line ups.

Disagree strongly there. SA still have better bowlers then the pakis, rabada, nortje and ngidi are all good especially rabada as we know. Batting is light on but Markram (they need him back plud he destroyed the aussies) and De cock are obviously talented. Pakis have azam and not alot with the ball.

Even though Pakistan were smashed, they still scored 240 or more every time they batted here. Something NZ struggled to do even once. I’d strongly suggest NZ are a better Test line up than England. Pakistan would beat the Saffers no issues for mine.

Does anyone else see the irony of touring parties to South Africa especially recently being baited and any reaction is shown immediately. Funny how the instigators are never shown or recorded during the coverage. I’m not including the ball tampering incident in this as that’s completely different. Digging up shit on the opposition when ever they are getting rolled or challenged at home is starting to become the norm when travelling over there as it’s happened the last 3 years when India, England and Australia have toured.

Are you referring to Ben Stokes? After what happened in Bristol and the threats he made to the spectator, he's lucky to be playing any cricket.

Can someone help me understand something. Ben Stokes just bowled a bouncer at van der Dussen and the umpire has called it as a wide for height i.e. above his head. Under Law 21.10, shouldn't that be called a No Ball? In test cricket I've only seen umpires call wides for short pitched balls that pass over the batsman's head. Isn't it a No Ball?
