Matt Prior’s thrilling last-ditch bid to save the Investec series, and England’s world number one status, ended in a 51-run defeat against South Africa at Lord’s.

Prior (73) produced the most exhilarating of three England 50s but, even after his reprieve on 67 when he was called back from almost the pavilion steps after holing out off a Morne Morkel no-ball, he could not get the hosts over the line.
