South Africa battles to 56-1 in 2nd test vs. England

South Africa battles to 56-1 in 2nd test vs. England

In helpful conditions, England were thwarted by some determined South Africa batting in the morning session before Amla and De Kock dominated the afternoon.

Root has the chance to unleash both Broad and England's all-time leading wicket-taker Anderson, along with Mark Wood and Ben Stokes also returning to the scene of that Ashes success, in an unchanged winning team for his second Test at captain.

Moeen Ali was the star of the England bowling attack in the first test victory at Lord's, taking 10 wickets in a test match for the first time.

James Anderson became the first man to take test 300 wickets in England when he had opener Dean Elgar brilliantly caught at backward point by a diving Dawson for six. He had Amla dropped low down by Cook at slip, nearly had him caught at fine leg as he miscued a pull, and had de Kock flaying a couple through gully at catchable height.

It may not have been the astonishing haul of eight for 15 that Broad took in the last Test here in the summer of 2015, when Australia were routed for 60.

Du Plessis had made only 19 when he was superbly caught behind one-handed by Jonny Bairstow from the merest touch off his glove, giving Stokes a first wicket. In the first Test, he scored 52 coming in at No. 9 in the first innings and was unbeaten on 54 on day 1 of this Test.

And Du Plessis was disappointed with the way South Africa responded to challenges in the first Test, pointing to England's recovery from 76-4 to 458 in the first innings as a particular source of irritation.

Lynda Carter open to being in 'Wonder Woman' sequel
She said: "Am I open to it?" "We were trying to get me in the first one and we couldn't make it work with our timing", she said. Carter was thrilled to see that the film introduced a whole new group of people - especially women - to the Wonder Woman world.

But the left-handed opener, England's leading Test run-scorer, is now happy to concentrate exclusively on his batting.

"As you get slightly older, you kind of appreciate everything a bit more because you know a bloke will always come and tap on your shoulder at some stage in the next few years".

Root did successfully move Broad from his favoured Pavilion End to the Radcliffe Road End to spark England's resurgence, but the hosts allowed the game to drift as they waited for the second new ball to arrive, a period that allowed Philander and Morris to settle.

"It was business as usual for me", said Cook, who scored a second-innings 69 at headquarters.

"Morris and Philander's partnership has given South Africa the day".

Root added: "I think it's really important Jimmy is smart in looking after his body, and the way he's gone about it this week has been just that". That's not just me, that's part of worldwide cricket.

"I still think you'll see the glint in his eye", Cook said ahead of Friday's second Investec Test match at Trent Bridge.
