Result: Moeen Ali hat-trick wraps up England win in third Test match

England wrap up a 239-run victory over South Africa in the third Test match after Moeen Ali completes a hat-trick.

Moeen Ali has recorded a hat-trick as England completed a 239-run victory over South Africa in the third Test match.

England went into the final day requiring six wickets to take a 2-1 lead in the four-game series, but the tourists initially frustrated Joe Root's team.

However, after Toby Roland-Jones took two wickets in two balls, it swung the match heavily in England's favour, although Dean Elgar stuck around to make a resolute ton for the Proteas.

Ben Stokes struck with the final ball before lunch to leave England requiring three wickets, and it was then left to Moeen to complete a memorable feat during the afternoon session.

After finally dismissing Elgar for 136, he got rid of Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel, with the final wicket being decided by a review.

The final match of the series gets underway at Old Trafford on Friday, August 4.
