South Africa crush England to level four-match series

South Africa bowled England out in just a session and a half for a 340-run win in the second Test on Monday, leveling the series at 1-1.

In a big turnaround after England won the series-opener by 211 runs, South Africa sealed its dominance at Trent Bridge on Day 4 when it needed just over 40 overs to take all 10 English second-innings wickets.

England was all out for 133 facing a daunting target of 474, with no one reaching 50.

Chris Morris took two key wickets for South Africa before lunch, knocking over Joe Root’s off stump and then bouncing out Alastair Cook, who top-scored with 42.

At 79/4 at lunch, England collapsed in an hour after the break, losing its last six wickets for 49 runs. Duanne Olivier wrapped it up for South Africa with two wickets in two balls, while seamer Vernon Philander and left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj collected three wickets each.
