South Africa 216-4 at Lunch, Leads England by 210 Runs in Test

Aug. 19 (Bloomberg) -- South Africa reached 216-4 at lunch on the fourth day of the final cricket Test against England at Lord’s, a lead of 210 runs.

Hashim Amla is 94 not out, with AB de Villiers on 24. Dale Steyn was the only batsman dismissed this morning, the nightwatchman scoring 9 runs.

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.
