Kagiso Rababa became the youngest South African to take ten wickets in a Test match, finishing with 13-144, as the hosts completed a 280-run victory over England in the final Test at Centurion.

The Proteas needed only 66 minutes and 65 deliveries to take the remaining seven England wickets after the Tourists had begun the day on 52-3 with a daunting 330 more needed for victory.

Paceman Rabada, 20, added a further four wickets to his tally to return 6-32 in the innings and 13-144 in the match – the best by a South African since Makhaya Ntini’s 13-132 in 2005.

England lost James Taylor (24) in the third over of the day, Joe Root (20) three balls later which set the ton for the day and, eventually, they were all out for 101 to hand South Africa victory by 280.
