South Africa vs England – Scorecard, Stats, Lineups


OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Kagiso Rabada. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Welcome to the third day of the second test between South Africa and England at Newlands. England played well yesterday to get South Africa eight down at stumps, South Africa in need of runs today because this pitch will show signs of wear going into their second batting innings, which will make it tough to improve on the score they get in their first innings. Another big day for their seamers as well, they need early wickets when England bat to put the pressure back on England, the good thing for England is that time isn’t an issue in this game, so the openers can take it slow if they need. A big day of cricket ahead for both teams, today should really give us a good idea of which team is in the driving seat with both teams still in this one at the start of day three.

First ball! Rabada goes for a golden! Anderson with a beauty to start the day, seaming away from the left-hander, gets him to poke at one and Buttler takes the catch, England one wicket away now.
