Broad inspires crushing English win

Stuart Broad produced the best bowling figures of his professional career as South Africa were subjected to the heaviest and most humiliating defeat in their 406-match ODI history

Commentary

Well, what a match this has been. It's only lasted 37.1 overs (223 balls), and England go 2-0 up in the series. The 10-wicket win was set-up by a memorable spell from Stuart Broad, picking up 5 for 23 - his first five-for in ODIs, and in doing so he passed 50 ODI wickets. Matt Prior had a fine game behind - and, later, in front of - the stumps, snaffling six catches as South Africa were dismissed for 83, their lowest-ever total against England. For the second-placed side in the world, this was a thoroughly disappointing performance, and although they won the Test series 2-1, ever since they have lost their focus. What a start this has been for Kevin Pietersen, too. Do join us for Friday's third game at The Oval but, for now, it's goodnight.
