Moeen Ali and Liam Dawson produced one of the best spells of spin bowling as England humble South Africa by 211 runs in the first Test at Lord’s. With the win, England take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series. Moeen finished with figures of 6 for 53 and Dawson picked up three wickets. South Africa did well to bowl out England for 233 in the second innings but that the only high point of the day for them. Their batsmen did not show any application and crumbled in the chase. Some bad shot selection from South Africa batsmen and good bowling from England spinners ended the game in four days.
