Bad light forced stumps on day four with England needing just 33 runs. Alex Lees fell to Rabada but England took less than half an hour on the final day to wrap up the proceedings.
It has been a glorious summer for Ben Stokes and Co., and they have ended on a winning note. Unlike the series against New Zealand and the rescheduled fifth Test against India, it wasn't the ulra-positive 'Bazball' approach that won them this series against South Africa. On spicy tracks and up against two world-class pace attacks, the ball dominated the bat, and it was England's better depth in the middle-order that eventually made the difference.
