Andrew Flintoff and Graeme Smith


Smith icing too sweet for England

Graeme Smith hit a magnificent unbeaten century as South Africa won the third Test comprehensively and claimed a first series win in England since 1965.

After beginning day four at Edgbaston on 297-6, England were bowled out for 363, setting the tourists 281 to win.

Andrew Flintoff, Monty Panesar and James Anderson all took wickets as South Africa collapsed from 65-0 to 93-4.

But Smith (154no) and Mark Boucher (45no) batted with great composure to see their side to a five-wicket triumph.
