Cape Town - The Proteas made an emphatic statement about their prospects of emulating the series-winning classes of 2008 and 2012 when they thumped England by 340 runs with more than a day and a session to spare in the second Test match at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Monday.

As it happened: England v South Africa 

The series is now level at 1-1 with two matches to play with the next one starting at The Oval in London on Thursday week – a venue of which the older hands in the Proteas squad will have very fond memories. On their last visit there in 2012 Hashim Amla scored a treble century, Morne Morkel put in a superb spell on the fourth evening, culminating in the wicket of Kevin Pietersen and the Proteas equalled a record by winning by an innings for the loss of only two wickets.
