Jansen takes career best 5-35 as South Africa beats England 158

LONDON: Left-arm sailor Marco Jansen posted a career-best 5-35 as South Africa edged out England 158 just 13 minutes into the fourth day of the crucial third and final Test at The Oval on Sunday.

England led the tourists with 40 runs before South Africa’s second inning, with 20 wickets falling in just over three sessions after the first day was washed out by rain and the second called off as a mark of respect following the death of Queen Elizabeth.

Both teams’ first innings went exactly 36.2 overs as the Seamers hayed with a helpful wicket, with a positive both ways now the most likely outcome.

The series is tied at 1-1 after both sides won by one innings in the first two games in three days.
