South Africa Leads England by 139 Runs in Final Cricket Test

Aug. 18 (Bloomberg) -- South Africa leads England by 139 runs after day three of the third and final cricket Test at Lord’s in London.

Hashim Amla was 57 not out as South Africa reached 145-3 in its second innings. Earlier, Jonny Bairstow scored 95 as England was bowled out for 315 in response to the Proteas’ first-innings 309.

England must win 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.
