England Bowls Out South Africa for 211 in Third One-Day Match

August 31, 2012

James Anderson took four wickets as England bowled out South Africa for 211 runs in the third one- day international cricket match at the Oval in London.

Anderson took the last three wickets of the innings as well as the first, Graeme Smith for 18. South Africa only used 46.4 overs. Anderson finished 4-44, while Jade Dernbach was 3-44.

South Africa, which leads the series 1-0, won the toss and elected to bat in south London. Hamish Amla, who hit 150 in the visitors’ victory at Southampton earlier this week, was bowled for 43 by Dernbach, who also got Dean Elgar for 42.

England will bat during the evening session of the 50-over match.

With the Aug. 28 win, South Africa moved ahead of England in the International Cricket Council’s one-day rankings, and is the first team to hold the No. 1 spot in all three formats of the sport. England dropped behind South Africa and India in the ODI rankings. The first match in the series was abandoned Aug. 24 because of rain in Cardiff.
