OUT! Bowled. Kagiso Rabada to Stuart Broad. Yorker, off stump backing away driving, missed to. Broad gone! Rabada gets his fourth, yorker into Broad's toes, he backs away and gets bowled. England have lost this one convincingly after a collapse in their first innings. A great win for South Africa as they take a lead in this series 1-0. Overall the bowling won them this game, having only got 284 from their first innings. Philander was incredible keeping England at bay in the second innings, then Rabada and Nortje taking seven wickets in the fourth gave South Africa a much needed win. De Kock in the first innings scored a scrappy 95 to get South Africa to a respectable score and from their England were in melt-down, lots to improve on from them going into the second test.
