England Leads South Africa by Six Runs in Final Cricket Test

Aug. 18 (Bloomberg) -- England leads South Africa by six runs after being bowled out for 315 on day three of the third and final cricket Test at Lord’s in London.

Jonny Bairstow scored 95 and Graeme Swann added 38 runs for England, which began the day 208-5. Morne Morkel and Dale Steyn took four wickets each for South Africa.

England needs a victory to remain No. 1 in the International Cricket Council’s Test rankings, while a draw is enough for South Africa to leapfrog the hosts. The Proteas won the first Test by an innings and 12 runs with the second rain-affected game drawn.
