England picked up a famous victory yesterday, coming up with the goods late on day five to beat South Africa by 189 runs and pull level in the series.

Roared on by the Barmy Army, who dominated Newlands for all five days, Joe Root’s men wrapped up the South African tail in the last half-hour of the final day–providing an excellent advert for five-day Test cricket.

Aided by a swashbuckling 61 from Ollie Pope on his return to the side and Jimmy Anderson’s 28th five-wicket haul in Test cricket, England led by 46 runs after both sides had batted once.

They moved into a commanding position in their second innings, with Dom Sibley grinding out a fantastic maiden Test century and the likes of Root, Ben Stokes, and Jos Buttler playing some glorious strokes at the other end.

South Africa made a strong start to their mammoth chase of 438 and produced a resolute batting performance but in the end, the Three Lions proved too strong.

Stokes, who words don’t seem to do justice to at this point, produced another sensational performance–the conclusion of which was his three decisive wickets in the final hour.

England’s miracle man was quick to praise the Barmy Army and described the fans as the “12th man” after they played their part in the victory at Newlands.
