If winning all those medals at the Beijing Olympics wasn’t enough, we’re now winning cricket matches – will wonders never cease?

The new captain, Kevin Pietersen seems to be living up to his nickname of ‘Teflon’ even if he only managed to score 5 runs at the wicket himself. Freddy Flintoff more than made up for it with an unbeaten 78 in the 2nd innings, and claiming two South African wickets with his bowling.

England’s Samit Patel played a key role in England’s victory with a maiden 5 wicket tally.

Score:
England 296 for 7 (Bell 73, Flintoff 78) beat South Africa 170 (Amla 46, Patel 5-41) by 126 runs

Currently England are winning the series of one day matches 3 – 0. They play again at Lord’s on Sunday, 31st August and the final one of the series takes place on Wednesday 3rd September in Cardiff. Happily, England is in the position of not being able to lose!
