PostSubject: South Africa draw first blood.(Cricket)   Tue Jul 24, 2012 5:10 pm

Dale Steyn claimed
figures of 5-56 as South Africa won the first Investec Test against
England at the Kia Oval by an innings and 12 runs.



England resumed the final day on a vulnerable 102-4 needing to bat
out the day to salvage a draw, but after Ravi Bopara fell early in the
morning session the writing was on the wall.
Ian Bell (55) and
Matt Prior (40) then added 86 in a promising sixth wicket stand but when
the latter was snared by leg-spinner Imran Tahir (3-63) it was only a
matter of time before Graeme Smith's side wrapped up the win.
And
when Bell edged Steyn to slip after South Africa had taken the second
new ball the end was nigh, with the last five wickets falling for 37
runs.
The overnight pair had just completed a 50 stand when Bopara
got out in frustrating circumstances for the second time in the match
to Steyn.
The number six had contrived to edge a looping bouncer
behind as he failed to bail out of a pull shot in the first innings;
today, he went after another short ball but edged down on to his stumps
as he aimed past point.
Bell would have gone on 20 had AB de Villiers held a thin edge behind off a leg-break in Imran Tahir's first over.
