JOHANNESBURG - South Africa took full advantage of an abject England batting display on Monday to complete an easy 340-run win in the second test to level the series 1-1 with two games left to play.

Instead of mounting the required rearguard action, England collapsed to 133 all out, with the last three wickets falling without the addition of a run, as the spectators at Trent Bridge watched in stunned silence.

The wickets were shared among four bowlers with Vernon Philander (3-24), Keshav Maharj (3-42) and Chris Morris (2-7) taking the honours.

Alastair Cook top scored with 42.
