3rd Test: Stuart Broad guides England to series win over South Africa with magical spell

Johannesburg: England pacer Stuart Broad wreaked havoc on the fifth day of the third Test match against South Africa as the visitors thrashed the AB de Villiers-led side by seven wickets.

Broad, who had picked two wickets in the first innings, followed it with a sensational six-wicket haul on the final day.

The hosts bowled out England for 323 in the morning session conceding a 10-run lead. But in their second innings, it was huge batting collapse for the Proteas as they were skittled for their second lowest test score since returning to international cricket in 1991.

The tourists now have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series, with the final game to be played in Pretoria.

The fourth Test starts in Pretoria next week.
