Amla had earlier become the first South African to hit a Test triple century. Kallis reached his 43rd Test century in measured style off 227 balls but then went on the attack as South Africa took the match far beyond England's reach. 1 Test status is something England are still "coming to terms with", His batting is cause for celebration and his achievements reflect the greater cultural richness now evident in South Africa, Kallis, Steyn, and why the X-factor matters, As events at The Oval showed, greatness is the ability to bend and shape events by will, to dictate history rather than be dictated to by it, South Africans rise up Test rankings after Oval victory, South Africa's batsmen have surged up the ICC Test rankings and occupy four of the top six spots after their colossal performance in the first Test at The Oval, Technical deficiencies on slow, dry pitches mean England have now lost five from nine, Match tied (Kings XI Punjab won the one-over eliminator), Match tied (Kolkata Knight Riders won the one-over eliminator), Amo-Region need 45 runs in 28.5 overs.

Whereas England had taken only one wicket in more than 13 hours of play between the early dismissal of Alviro Petersen on Friday and the tourists' declaration at tea on Sunday, the hosts were almost immediately in trouble in their second innings. @12 No you're not. He is the only South Africa batsman to score a Test triple hundred - 311 not out against England in 2012. You won't find a more clueless person when it comes to cricket.

Kevin Pietersen played some bold strokes, hitting three boundaries in an innings of 16 before he played down the wrong line against Morne Morkel and had his middle stump knocked out of the ground. When at his best, he was absolutely brilliant and very difficult to fluster or dismiss. He scored 27 ODI centuries, the most by a South Africa batsman, and scored 8,113 runs at an average of 49.46 in the format. Different league.

Good luck Hashim.
