Anderson, Dernbach restrict SA batsmen

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 on Friday.

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.

Amla was again the tourists’ top-scorer but the fact he was out for 43 on Friday said much about the difference between the two innings.

South Africa made a steady after AB de Villiers won the toss, with Amla and Graeme Smith sharing an opening partnership of 50 in 52 balls.

But Smith was bowled by Anderson for 18 after the left-hander charged down the pitch.
Amla looked in good touch as he returned to the ground where, in July, he became the first South African to score a Test treble hundred.
