England v South Africa, third Investec Test Match highlights
England are on course to lift the trophy at Emirates Old Trafford
England took a 2-1 lead in the Investec Test Series against South Africa following their 239 run victory at the Kia Oval, with the Three Lions now looking to lift the trophy in the fourth Investec Test Match at Emirates Old Trafford starting Friday 4 August.
All eyes now turn to Emirates Old Trafford, the iconic home Lancashire County Cricket Club, where England will have the chance to finish the series 3-1 and lift the trophy thanks to Moeen Ali’s moment of brilliance to finish the third Investec Test Match with an outstanding hat-trick.
With South Africa on 252-7, England had realistically wrapped up the third match following their dominant all-round display which left the visitors needing a further 240 to win from their second innings…but that doesn’t change the incredible spectacle that ensued to wrap up the third match.
…the first ever hat-trick in Test cricket at the Kia Oval.
First up for Ali was the big wicket of Elgar (136) who proved to be a thorn in England’s side throughout the final innings, before Morkel (0) and Rabada (0) were also dismissed in just three balls.
