A Downright Angry Review of the 2nd Test v South Africa

This was a shocker. England were absolutely hammered at Trent Bridge by 340 runs as they fell apart to South Africa. This was rottingham in Nottingham and led to dissent by the Trent.

However, it was interesting, there was thrills, spills, sledging and England won easily by 211 runs. Here is the review of the Test...
