England beat South Africa by 211-runs in first Investec Test

After a nervous start on Day One for the hosts, which saw England reduced to 76-4 following an outstanding bowling display from Vernon Philander, Joe Root’s side recovered well and looked in total control for the rest of the opening Test Match – with thanks to Root’s first innings score of 190 (the fourth highest score by a captain on debut in Test cricket).
