Kagiso Rabada became only the third player in history to take seven wickets in a Test innings at Centurion as South Africa took control of the Fourth Test versus England.

At 20 years old, Rabada also became the youngest South African to take seven wickets in an innings, returning 7-112 to help bowl England out for 342 – a first-innings deficit of 133 runs.

England’s overnight pairing of Alastair Cook and Joe Root were equal top-scorers for the Tourists as they both made 76.

Moeen Ali displayed his significant talents with the bat once again by adding a vital 61 before being last man out.

James Anderson gave England faint hope of an attainable final innings chase when Dean Elgar was smartly caught behind in the third over.

To confound England’s misery on a difficult day, ex- Derbyshire man Hashim Amla was dropped on nought as South Africa reached 42-1- a lead of 175 – before bad light brought about a premature end to Day Three.
