England spinner Moeen Ali took three wickets on the final day of the first Test in Durban as the tourists secured a 241-run victory over South Africa before lunch.
Having begun the day needing six wickets for a famous win, England got off to the perfect start when Ali trapped the dangerous AB de Villiers (37) lbw with just the third delivery of the day.
Ali also got rid of Kyle Abbott (two) lbw, after his tricky spin had seen Temba Bavuma out for a duck, thanks to a smart stumping from Jonny Bairstow – England’s first wicket via stumping in the years of Test cricket.
Steven Finn, Chris Woakes and Stuart Broad got the other final-day wickets as England took a 1-0 lead in the four-Test series, which resumes in Cape Town on Saturday.
