OUT! Run Out. Mark Wood to Keshav Maharaj. Full toss, down leg side backing away driving, to mid on, fielded by Curran. Maharaj run out! Thats seals the win for England, not the best of days for the visitors after a barrage of runs from Maharaj and Paterson, but they get the final wicket. 2-1 lead going into the final test, Rabada out of that game which should favour England, let's see if they can get the series win.
