Centurion: England crumbled to 101 all out and their second lowest score in South Africa to lose the fourth and final Test by 280 runs on Tuesday, a consolation win for the home team after the series had already been decided.

Kagiso Rabada took 6/32 in the second innings for 13 wickets in the match for the 20-year-old South African fast bowler, only the third South African to take 13 in a Test.

 

Continuing on the final day on 52/3, there was little resistance from England at SuperSport Park.

James Taylor and Joe Root fell in the first four overs of play, and England lost seven wickets in 13 overs for 49 runs on the day.

England will still celebrate a first series victory over South Africa in 11 years after claiming the contest 2-1.

For South Africa, it was a morale-boosting win for new captain A.B. de Villiers and his team, who were knocked off the top of the Test rankings with the series loss. It was the Proteas’ first Test win in its last 10 Tests.

 

Rabada, in just his sixth Test, was the biggest plus for hosts South Africa in Centurion.
