Eng vs SA - 2nd Test, Manchester, day 3

England romp to innings win over South Africa

England 415 for 9 dec (Foakes 113*, Stokes 103, Nortje 3-82) beat South Africa 151 (Rabada 36, Anderson 3-32, Broad 3-37) and 179 (Petersen 42, Robinson 4-43, Anderson 3-30) by an innings and 85 runs

Manchester: A brilliant England surged to an innings-and-85-run win over South Africa inside three days in the second Test at Emirates Old Trafford to level the series.

The home side were magnificent with the ball, breaking some stubborn Proteas resistance to dismiss the tourists for 179.

An electrifying morning, when the ball was reverse-swinging, saw England reduce to South Africa to 54-3.

They were held up by an obdurate stand of 87 across 43 overs between Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen.

But captain Ben Stokes removed both in successive overs after tea to expose the tail.

James Anderson and Ollie Robinson took over with the second new ball, sharing the final five wickets for seven runs in 30 deliveries. Robinson ended with 4-43 and Anderson 3-30.

The sides have now traded innings victories, leaving the series perfectly poised for the final Test at the Kia Oval starting on 8 September.
