SA leads the series
The Proteas, after coming back into nick in their 2nd innings in the first test of the npower test series, continued their sublime touch and powered their way through the 2nd test winning it comfortably by 10 wickets. England went in to bat and were bundled out for a meagre 203 all out. Thanks to some accurate bowling by Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel who took 4 wickets each. In reply, South Africa posted a mammoth 522 thanks to some amazing batting by AB De Villiers who scored a brilliant 174 and Ashwell Prince continued his amazing form scoring 149. England in reply, were bundled out for 327 and again, the wreckers-in-chief being Steyn and Morkel this time taking 3 wickets each. Needing 9 runs for victory, The Proteas, knocked them off comfortably winning the match and hence leading the series 1-0. Prince was the man of the match.
