South Africa defeated England 2-0 in the World Test Championship series.

As the West Indies were reduced to 34 for six in the 8.1 overs going up to lunch, the match was effectively won and lost.

Although opening batsmen Kraigg Brathwaite and Tagenarine Chanderpaul survived the first 10 overs, putting up 21 runs, fast bowler Kagiso Rabada struck twice in three balls, sparking the collapse.

Rabada trapped Brathwaite leg before wicket for 18 with a delivery that kept low, dismissing him for the seventh time in seven innings.

Raymon Reifer gloved a catch down the leg side to wicket keeper Heinrich Klaasen two balls later.

Spinners Simon Harmer and Keshav Maharaj each got two wickets as the West Indies were bowled out for 13 runs.

Harmer shared the new ball with Rabada and produced a spectacular turn, catching Chanderpaul at second slip after the left-hander had faced 36 balls and scored only two runs.

Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, and Kyle Mayers all fell for low scores, with South Africa’s lone setback coming after Maharaj won a successful leg before wicket appeal against Mayers.

Mulder returned after lunch, but he did not have to bowl.

At lunch, Joshua Da Silva, Jason Holder, and Alzarri Joseph all played aggressive strokes as the last four wickets yielded 72 runs before the match was called off shortly after the afternoon drinks break.

Rabada’s health had been questioned when he complained of back problems during the first innings, but he showed no symptoms of trouble throughout a hostile seven-over session.

South Africa had been bowled out for 321 earlier, with captain Temba Bavuma adding only one run to his overnight 171 before being caught by Holder at deep square leg off.
