James Anderson and Jade Dernbach took seven wickets between them as England dismissed South Africa for a seemingly modest 211 in the third one-day international at The Oval yesterday

Anderson finished with figures of four for 44 in 9.4 overs, including a spell of three for one in eight balls that polished off the Proteas innings with 20 balls left. Meanwhile South Africa-born Jade Dernbach marked his return to England duty by taking three for 44 in nine overs on his Surrey home ground.

Dernbach’s haul included the prize wicket of Hashim Amla, who made 150 in the Proteas’ 80-run win at Southampton on Tuesday that put them 1-0 up in this five-match series following last week's washout in Cardiff and took them to the top of the world rankings in all three international formats.
