Relive the action of the third and final Test match of South Africa’s tour to England in 2012 at Lord’s where the world No 1 ranking was up for grabs.
Having thumped England in the opening encounter at the Oval by an innings and 12 runs, the second Test in Leeds was rained out, making the Lord’s clash greatly important.
Graeme Smith became the most-capped Test captain of all time, while his opposite number, Andrew Strauss, made his 100th appearance for England in red-ball cricket.
The Proteas won the toss and batted first, which resulted in a first-innings total of 309 with Vernon Philander saving the batting performance with a superb 61.
England managed 315 as a result before a century by Hashim Amla inspired his team to 351 in the second innings, setting the hosts a total of 345 for victory.
But, a ruthless bowling performance by Philander, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel dismissed England for 294 as the Proteas grabbed a 51-run victory, becoming the new No 1 ranked team in the world.
