England win by seven wickets. What a day this has been. When we started, England were 238 for 5 in their first innings. They got just ahead, then it was all about Stuart Broad. Another spell that will go down in Test history. South Africa have a host of problems, for sure, but this is still one heck of a performance from England. I'll stay with you to bring the presentations shortly. Hasmukh: "Yes, it's cheer moments in India to feel the proud of being #1 in Test Cricket.. party.... :)" Yep, well done. This is England's day.
James Pickering: "When was last series win in SA? This was excellent performance." England won in 2004-05, went 2-1 at Johannesburg. Hoggard's famous day.
Much to be debated in the aftermath of all this. How good are England? How bad are South Africa's problems? We'll have plenty about all that to come. Presentation time...
AB de Villiers "I thought it was a good toss to win. There were quite a few soft dismissals. It was a 400+ wicket but we didn't make it count. You were never in, but they didn't bowl us out in the first. They did in the second. [From 90-4] We didn't nail it down, there were a few areas we could have played better cricket. [Broad] I haven't seen a team play like that in a long time. There's a lot still to play for, it's just my first match as captain and I have a lot of motivation. We'll need a few good meetings about the way we are going."
Alastair Cook "We didn't quite get it right first thing. But didn't go for too many runs. The guys bounced back. 300 was about par. Rooty was exception and then it was over to Stuart and Jimmy...Broady got on one of his rolls. One of those days we'll look back on for a long time. I don't tell Stokesy anything, I just let him play. Those two did the same against NZ last year. The stand got us back into the game. When it's level on third innings on a wicket like that it's always hard. Credit to the lads, it's been a great tour. They can be really proud. You can never be satisfied but tonight's not the time for that. Andrew Strauss has told us to have a big night, so if he's said it we will."
The Man of the Match goes to Stuart Broad "I was a bit under the weather. Everyone we know has been ill. The doctor got me over it. The guys bowled well to cover my absence. I bowled a bit too short in the first innings so we had a chat before the second innings about bringing the batsman forward to a fuller length. We got lucky, we got some cloud and the lights were on. But we got the ball in the right areas and took our catches. It's been a fantastic day for us. I was quite tired towards the end. The air's a bit thinner. It was a good day to bowl. I wish I could take that wicket around with us."
Well, that just about wraps it up from a pretty extraordinary day of cricket. David Hopps reflects on it all in his report and we'll have plenty more written and video analysis to come over the next few hours. We'll be back for the final Test from Centurion, but for now from Andrew and myself it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.
Jose...P: "Nicky said it: "The collapse is on!" So, prescientful "

Can Root finish it
