    Very good Test match here at Lords, gutted to be on the wrong side but South Africa were better. We are now the hunters again.

    Something else to think about.... England 9 dropped catches cost over 600 runs...!!! That might of made a difference...!

    And with that Smith is off to collect a whole heap of silverware, including the Basil D'Oliveira trophy and the ICC Test mace. All thoroughly deserved. "For South Africa to come out in a three-Test series and beat England 2-0 is a monumental effort," it really is," says Nasser. @SkyCricket #engvsa
