The Lord’s Test is nicely poised with South Africa ending Day 3 with an overall lead of 139 runs with 7 wickets in hand. Hashim Amla is providing the edge to the visitors with a neat knock of 57* (from 98 balls with 8 fours). Giving him the company is night watchman Dale Steyn, who has been hit on the knuckles by a nasty lifter in his 9-ball stay.
South Africa finished an innings and 12-run victory during the extended post lunch session at The Oval. England’s resistance in their second innings lasted 97 overs as the hosts got bowled out for 240.
