England beat South Africa by nine wickets in the third and deciding Test at The Oval on Monday to win the series 2-1 in just two days of action. The home team, which resumed at 97-0, needed just 5.3 more overs to reach the winning target of 130. Zak Crowley was dismissed for 69 not out and Ollie Pope scored 11 not out.
England have now won six of their seven Tests under their new captaincy duo of captain Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum, when former captain Joe Root was in charge, having won just one of his last 17 matches.
The defeat meant South Africa suffered their first Test series loss since Dean Elgar took over as captain last year.
