Amla, Kallis make history against England


LONDON—Hashim Amla’s historic triple century was in the bag as South Africa declared on 637 for two at tea on the fourth day of the first cricket Test against England at the Oval in London yesterday.

Amla was on 311 not out, having notched South Africa’s first Test 300 five overs earlier. The lead was 252 and Jacques Kallis was on 182 not out.

England’s bowlers were powerless to disturb the concentration of South Africa’s two most focused batsmen as Amla and Kallis took their unbeaten stand to 377, the highest third wicket partnership by any country against England, who were 79 for four at the time of going to press.
