South Africa sealed a 51-run victory in the final Test to win the series 2-0, but England did not surrender their place at the top of the rankings without an exhilarating fight.

On a gripping fifth day at Lord's, the home side attacked throughout to keep a seemingly hopeless cause alive deep into the final session.

Man-of-the-match Philander finished with 5 for 30 and seven wickets in the match, as well as vital contributions of 61 and 35 with the bat, as South Africa took over at the top of the International Cricket Council rankings.
