Needing just four wickets to complete the victory, England captain Andrew Strauss put his faith in the two players that had ripped the heart out of the South African innings.

Swann and Broad had taken three wickets apiece on day four in Durban to leave the hosts on 76-6 overnight.

And it was the Nottinghamshire duo that struck again to complete the victory by an innings and 98 runs.

Swann struck in his first over of the day as he trapped Morne Morkel leg before for 15.

Paul Harris joined Mark Boucher at the crease to offer some resistance, before Broad struck with the decisive wicket.

Boucher was initially given not out after gloving a delivery down the leg side to Matt Prior. However England successfully referred the decision to leave South Africa on 108-8.


England should have had a ninth wicket when Swann trapped Dale Steyn in front, but Strauss opted not to refer the decision. Replays showed Steyn would have been given out.

Swann and Broad continued to torment the South African tail, although the ball just failed to carry or it narrowly missed the stumps.

However it took a bowling change to finally remove the defiant Harris for 36 with James Anderson coaxing the off-spinner into chipping the ball up to Broad at short mid-on.

Harris hit five boundaries in his 50-ball knock, leaving him as South Africa's top scorer in the second innings.

But Swann was able to capture his fifth wicket in the next over as he trapped Steyn leg before to herald celebrations from the tourists.

The Nottinghamshire off-spinner was deservedly named man-of-the-match for his nine wickets in the contest - his second successive award.
