Ravindra Jadeja suspended for Pallekele Test

India’s Ravindra Jadeja has been suspended for the upcoming Pallekele Test after his accumulated demerit points reached six within a 24-month period following his latest breach of the ICC Code of Conduct for which he received a 50 per cent fine and three demerit points.

Moeen Ali bowls England to series-clinching victory

Moeen Ali completed a magnificent all-round match and series when he ripped the heart out of the Proteas middle and lower order to set England up for another big win – this time by 177 runs – in the final Test match which finished Old Trafford in London on Monday. The result gave England a 3-1 series win and represented the first time they had beaten South Africa in a home Test Series since 1998.

Moeen captured his second five-wicket haul of the series to finish the leading wicket-taker with 25 dismissals – five better than Jimmy Anderson – at an average of 25.64 to go with the 252 runs he scored at an average of 36.

Moeen Ali halts spirited Proteas fightback

South Africa showed their character in making a spirited fightback with the ball before a spectacular counter-attack by Moeen Ali made sure England maintained their advantage on the third day of the final Test match at Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday.

At one stage the Proteas had England six down for 134 runs which placed England 270 ahead but Ali then put his foot down and when rain brought an early close he had contributed an unbeaten 67 (59 balls, 8 fours and 3 sixes) to an England total of 224/8 which gave the home side an overall lead of 360 runs. In the process Moeen made a mockery of the difficulties the other batsmen had had in coming to terms with a difficult pitch as he launched a calculated attack on Keshav Maharaj.

Hashim Amla: "You have to give credit to the bowlers”

The failure to convert starts was a disappointing feature of the Standard Bank Proteas’ performance on day two of the fourth Test match against England at Old Trafford in Manchester on Saturday. The top six batsmen – bar Dean Elgar - all made solid encouraging starts, but failed to convert the foundations into meaningful contributions.

Batsman, Hashim Amla, says the shortcomings have been ‘frustrating’ for the batting unit, who face another tough battle with the first innings score on 220/9 with a deficit of 142 runs.
