England Set Weary South Africa World Record 466 To Win Final Test

England Set Weary South Africa World Record 466 To Win Final Test

Stokes had just been dismissed for two on day one in Johannesburg when he became involved in an angry exchange with a fan.

South Africa, 2-1 down in the series, would still have held out hopes of a fightback when they had England 318-9 but after leaking runs and then being tumbled out by the touring bowlers, they again have their backs to the wall. He made a century to help England win the third Test by an innings and 53 runs to go 2-1 up.

Lunch was delayed to allow Mark Wood to mop up the South African tail as he finished with 5-46 off 14.3 overs.

It was an unhappy day for Philander, who will be retiring from global cricket at the end of the match.

Root was dropped by captain Faf du Plessis in Nortje's next over but it did not prove costly as the England skipper was out soon after for the addition of five more runs when he got a healthy edge to Nortje and was taken by wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.

De Kock turned his existing 32 into a fourth half-century of the series and Pretorius took advantage of some attacking fields to drive his way to a new personal best of 37.

Apart from his early dismissal for four, he received a fine of 15 percent of his match fee for his "send-off" of Jos Buttler on the second day and he then pulled up with a hamstring injury after bowling just nine balls in the second innings.

It took Ben Stokes to break things up, Pretorius feeding a rising delivery to Zak Crawley at gully, before Wood wrapped things up.

England had slipped from 107-0 to 157-4 at the Wanderers when Stokes was out and was under pressure on the opening day of the decisive test. England recovered to 192-4 by stumps.

Sibley looked a likelier target after benefiting from several thick edges to third man, but it was Crawley who fell first, nicking Pretorius.

England has asked for "enhanced security" at the stadium for the remainder of the Test.

Sibley matched his first-innings score of 44 before exiting in familiar circumstances after tea, shuffling across to left-armer Beuran Hendricks and nudging to short midwicket.

Philander - playing his farewell Test - used inappropriate language after dismissing Buttler at the Wanderers on Saturday.

Root seemed largely immune to the frenzy but Sam Curran joined in, sprinting to 35 before hooking Hendricks to fine-leg.
