South Africa 75-1, lead England by 205 runs in 2nd Test

South Africa 75-1, lead England by 205 runs in 2nd Test

He said: "There were times that England found themselves under pressure - the disappointing thing was just how quickly they got out of it".

England squad: Joe Root (capt, Yorkshire), Alastair Cook (Essex), Keaton Jennings (Durham), Gary Ballance (Yorkshire), Jonny Bairstow (wkt) (Yorkshire), Ben Stokes (Durham), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Liam Dawson (Hampshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Mark Wood (Durham), James Anderson (Lancashire), Toby Roland-Jones (Middlesex).

Here are the talking points from the second day at Trent Bridge. I know we can [fight back]. The forward, third-highest scorer in the German Bundesliga last season with 25 goals, moved on a reported loan with an option to buy, just before the mid-season Chinese transfer window closes.

But there had always been concerns about their batting.

The first-innings opening stands against England here in the decade that could be dubbed the Anderson-Broad Era are (most recent first): 4, 33, 19, 9, 0, 5, 2. Yes the wicket was hard but they should have been capable of more resolve.

Everyone expected the tourists to miss the banned Kagiso Rabada badly here. Their strength was with the ball and that has now been reduced.

Faf du Plessis, back from paternal leave, won the toss and must have agonised before deciding to bat first.

Newly appointed Test skipper Joe Root had a dream start as he not only performed well with the bat but was also brilliant with his bowling changes.

That leads to a forecast of kP 6 for how far south the northern lights might be seen on Sunday night. Charged particles (coronal mass ejection) from the solar flare will reach the earth Sun.

"The bowlers that are swinging it and nibbling it off the seam with a slightly wobbling seam have done best on the day". Morris, being an all rounder, will give the team more runs to play with, and will undoubtedly do a good job with the ball as well. That test will definitely come this winter in Australia. The same wicket will be used. That is a statistic which suggests South Africa are worth risking again at big numbers - [4.9] is available. The top three looks weak.

What is in their favour is momentum.

Does that mean South Africa are value at 7/2? They have had an very bad tour so far and that is a major concern. They need to pack the batting.

Responding to South Africa's first innings total, England both the openers cheaply. But the odds are not as they should be.

For a few minutes the Trent Bridge crowd roared approval.

The visitors then in their second innings lost Heino Kuhn (8), but Elgar and Amla made sure they end the day on a positive note.

Du Plessis' return is good news for a batting lineup that needs some reinforcements. Figures 2013-2016 on 1pt level stakes. Does not include back-to-lay in-running match advice or commission rate.
