Match notes
  • General
  • South Africa were dismissed in only 94 balls for 30, the lowest score until 1954-55 when New Zealand were dismissed for 26.
  • Lohmann's analysis of 8 for 7 set a new Test record and he ended the match - on the second day - with a hat-trick.
  • SMJ Woods was making his debut for England after playing for Australia.
