Summer is here; cricket is on

I'm sorry;  I don't really follow all of the cricket world, but I do pay attention when the Daily Mail writes about the English cricket team playing Test cricket.  And they just did that, with a new captain (Joe Root), and they easily handled South Africa.

This is a recap of the last day.  After a high-scoring first innings (where Joe Root helped his cause with 190 runs), the second innings for both teams were relatively low in runs;  England only had 233, but they were able to keep South Africa to 119 to get the win.  Moeen Ali took 4 wickets in the first innings and 6 in the second - impressive.
