Collingwood powers England to victory

Centurion: Paul Collingwood hit a century and took two wickets to guide England to a seven wicket win over South Africa in the second One-international at SuperSport Park on Sunday.

Collingwood and Jonathan Trott (87) stitched a 162 run third wicket stand as  England chased down South Africa's total of 250 for nine with 24 balls to spare. Collingwood faced 110 deliveries, hitting seven fours and two sixes.


Earlier, South Africans were restricted to 250 for nine in 50 overs. Their innings was helped by half-centuries from Hashim Amla (57) and Alviro Petersen (64)

The first match in the five game series was washed out on Friday. There are three more matches in the series.
