South Africa has given England a sound beating, winning the second Test by 10 wickets. They required just 9 second innings runs to secure victory. The series started encouragingly for England – they dominated the first two innings. It’s been all South Africa since then – they have scored 924 runs for the loss of just 13 wickets. It looks like South Africa will consolidate its rank as number two Test team. On the other hand, England will slide to 5th if Sri Lanka can beat India at home.
Next match: Sri Lanka versus India starts on Wednesday. The first Test in Colombo will feature trial by video.
