Anderson and Robinson bowl England to innings win over South Africa | England v South Africa 2022

England beat South Africa by an innings and 85 runs in the second Test on the third day to level the three-match series at 1-1.

Three wickets in the morning session put the hosts on course with the Proteas faltering under the weight of a 264-run first-innings deficit. But after coming together with 54 on the board, Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen dropped anchor to take the score to 141 for three at tea.

But Ben Stokes took a wicket in the first over after tea, Van der Dussen edging to Ben Foakes and then removed Petersen in the next over.

Jimmy Anderson and Ollie Robinson were brought back into the attack with the new ball and they struck in their opening overs. Anderson’s second ball was a nip-backer and sailed through the gate of Simon Harmer. Although Keshav Maharaj avoided making a pair, he was out for two after nicking Robinson into the slips.

Robinson then had Anrich Nortje caught behind before bowling last man Lungi
Ngidi.
