Match DrawnThe handshakes come now. Credit to both sides for making some effort to make a game on the final day but it was ultimately the draw that has looked the likeliest result for most of the game. An almost entirely even Test match after the one-sided affair at The Oval. With no rain, we may have seen England needing, say, 270 to win on the final day. Which would've been something very special. But it wasn't to be, and so we head to archery and occasional cricket ground Lord's for the final Test with England still ni with a chance of retaining their number-one status.
WICKET! Prior run out (Smith) 7Shocking piece of cricket from Trott and Prior. Trott hits Steyn for four through point, two through midwicket and then works the ball to leg for an easy single. But the batsmen think there's a second run there. They're really, really isn't, but by the time Trott sends Prior back it's too late and he's run out by a foot despite a despairing dive. Suddenly it's South Africa sniffing victory.
WICKET! Cook c Rudolph b Steyn 46A message came out to Cook and Trott from the dressing room while the ball was changed in the middle of Steyn's over. Very much doubt the instruction was hit the next ball into the hands of cover, but that's what Cook's done as he tries to work the ball into the legside and gets a leading edge. All four results still possible here.
