England spinner Moeen Ali on Monday carried a hat trick to crush South Africa in third test match. Ali’s three balls crushes South Africa’s last three batsmen in two overs scored England a 239-run triumph and a 2-1 series lead of Friday’s fourth and last test in Manchester United. The England team members celebrated following the last decision was assured by the umpire.
Ali is the first England spinner to have a hat trick. The off-spinner’s cap trap began when Dean Elgar’s resistance was at last finished for 136. Elgar edged the ball to Ben Stokes at slip, and Kagiso Rabada was out to an indistinguishable shot. Toward beginning of his next once again, Ali caught Morne Morkel leg before wicket to give England a persuading triumph.
Elgar was the main South African holding up England’s triumph as he batted regardless of a harmed left hand. Toby Roland-Jones took two wickets in two balls in the morning session and Ali expelled Chris Morris with the last ball before lunch, leaving South Africa on 205 for 7 pursuing an improbable 492.
Roland-Jones, a seamer making his introduction, took five wickets in the main innings to place England in order and guaranteed three more in the second innings.
South Africa continued on Monday on 117 for 4 and Elgar consolidated with Temba Bavuma in an association of 108 preceding two wickets tumbled to Roland-Jones in progressive conveyances. Bavuma was rejected lbw on bid for 32 and after that Vernon Philander was caught lbw for a duck to leave South Africa stuck in an unfortunate situation on 160 for 6.
