James Hugh Sinclair
- In spite of being all out for 92 in first innings, England gave a 210 drubbing.
- South Africa folded for a miserable 35 in the second innings.
- Sinclair, having scored South Africa's first Test fifty in the previous match, hit his country's first Test hundred - his first in first-class cricket. He also became the first player to score a century and take six wickets in the first innings of the same Test.
- South Africa's second innings lasted only 114 balls.

The guy you hit? If he got a look at the plates, it won't even take that long. There's no play here. There's no angle, there's no champagne room. I'm not a miracle worker, I'm a janitor. The math on this is simple; the smaller the mess, the easier it is for me to clean up.
