bulletEngland vs South Africa  streaming (ENG V SA) DAY-4 2nd Test

Team England won the toss and decided to bat first. England had a mixed day at the office on Day-1 of the second test. The Top order failed yet again and England Middle order and lower-middle order had to do the bulk of the scoring, Almost all the batsmen got the starts but could not convert into big hundreds. Ollie Pope was the only batsman who was able to score a half-century. Ollie is still not out. England got a decent total of 262-9 in the first innings so far. Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Dwaine Pretorius all took 2 wickets each. DAY-2 will be more important as it will set the course of the match, it will be interesting to see if England can do something with the ball and get South Africa out early to make things shift their way. Faf du Plessis’s bowlers did the job but now South Africa still needs to bat well in order to secure their position in the second Test. Team England came back hard at the South Africans in the second innings of the Test Match with some fine bowling by James Anderson who took 5 wickets. Jimmy denied SA of scoring any big score and brought back the match in England’s favor. In the second innings, England is playing rather slow in the 3rd innings as they look on to increase their lead in the 3rd innings. England has a lead of 264 runs on the board and still have 6 wickets in hand today. They will be eyeing a target in access of 400 before they could give it to South Africa in Day5 innings.

OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to James Anderson. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by van der Dussen. Anderson out and England are 269 all out. Short one from Rabada and Anderson flirts with the ball and feathers it to first slip who takes the easy catch. England will have been targeting at least 300 on this deck when the won the toss yesterday, so this score is going to be tough to defend. Early wickets with the new ball are key, because the older ball didn't do much for South Africa yesterday.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Anrich Nortje Wickets : 0
Day two from Cape Town and South Africa are in a great position at the start of the day having nearly bowled out England at the end of day one. Pope and Anderson the last men standing for the visitors as they slumped to 262 for 9. Not a great day for England who won the toss and chose to bat on what looks like a very flat surface. South Africa bowled well, but, as per usual, the England batters got themselves out, the one dismissal that springs to mind is the wicket of Stokes, who played a poor shot to a mediocre ball, these soft dismissals need to be ironed out if they are going to become a force in test cricket again.

Anrich Nortje to Ollie Pope. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock. Stumps on day one, England get to 262 for 9 after a late batting collapse sees five wickets fall in the session. Another session dominated by South Africa, they need just one more wicket to get in to bat on what is a fairly flat wicket. Pope with a quality fifty, the only half-century of the day, many made starts, but they didn't manage to cash in on valueble runs.

OUT! Caught. Anrich Nortje to Joe Root. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Root out! That drop didn't matter because he is caught by de Kock, brilliant short ball from Nortje, this one kept low on Root so he gloved the ball when he went to duck under the bouncer. England three down now and South Africa get the man they want.

Start of England Innings. Welcome to the second test between South Africa and England in Cape Town. South Africa lead the series going into today 1-0 after a great victory in Centurion where they managed to get an early lead after England's batting collapse, from then on South Africa were in control and got the win to put them one up. The main problem for England was the top-order, much like their issues against Australia. A change in mentality is needed for England with lots of batters getting out playing at wide/loose balls. One player that should be available for England is Pope, he has been a great addition to the England side and looks the part in the middle order. As for South Africa, the two bowlers they will want firing on all cylinders are Philander and Rabada who dominated England in their first innings. Burns is out of the series which puts England in a tough spot with regards to their opening pair, South Africa will be licking their lips at the prospect of bowling to two very new batters in Sibley and Crawley. A big challenge for both sides, but the pressure is on England to get something out of this match to keep them in this series.

Anderson with five! Stokes with another grab at second slip and South Africa are 223 all out. England take a lead going into their second innings, what a bowling display, one big partnership, the rest of the batters never got going. Superb bowling from the visitors, they lead South Africa by 46 runs going into their second innings. Not much in this pitch, a true line and length from England was key to limit runs, then the odd one would seam or swing which caused the South Africans problems.

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.

OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Keshav Maharaj. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, inside edge in the air uncontrolled to gully, by Sibley. Maharaj out, and that wicket brings an end to day two which has been England's, after a tough second session, England manage to get back into this one and leave South Africa on 215 for 8 at the close of play. Quality bowling display from all the bowlers, the one bowler that really impressed was Dom Bess who kept his line and length tight when the ball wasn't spinning to tie up one end, he gave the seamers a rest and kept the pressure on South Africa. A lot of work to do for South Africa who still trail England by 54 runs going into day three.

OUT! Caught. Dom Bess to Dean Elgar. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Root. Elgar goes! Big wicket! He departs for 88 trying to drive over mid-off, the pressure of the new ball must've been getting to him, even though it is 17 overs away I'm guessing he wanted to get cracking and up this run-rate and put pressure on the spinner.

Brilliant from the home side after a tricky opening session, Elgar and van der Dussen have seen off the new ball and have extended their partnership to over a hundred. As for England, a tough session, they have been working on opening up the cracks but not much movement from those cracks in this session, they could've had a couple of wickets but for a no ball and a tough drop catch. England have a lot of work to do in the next session if they are going to square this series up.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Anrich Nortje Wickets : 0
Welcome to the fourth day of the second test between South Africa and England at Newlands. England are in a good position in this one after picking up a 47 run lead from the first innings, they ended on 218 for 4 with Sibley not out on 85. For the past three days this pitch has been very flat, with the only movement coming when hitting the cracks in the surface. With that in mind it is hard to see South Africa being bowled out as easily as they were the first innings, but with Anderson and Broad there who knows what could happen? England will want to bat for quite a while today, get that lead to over 45-4000 and put as much pressure as possible on Elgar and Malan to force a wicket early on.
Over 79. no runs. Bowler: Anrich Nortje. England: 4-218(rr 2.76)

APPEAL! Anrich Nortje to Dom Bess. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. Wicket off the last ball of the day, Bess is out playing at a short one from Nortje, good bouncer, right at his helmet, it makes it so hard for Bess to play and in the end he gloves it through to the keeper. A great day for England, 218 for 4 at stumps on day three and they are in the driving seat at Newlands. A solid batting display from England, but with the pitch this flat it is hard to see South Africa conceding many wickets, however the cracks on the pitch seem to be getting the ball to move when hit, so England do have a chance of getting some movement out of a wearing ball. South Africa need something early on tomorrow or this game will be hard to retrieve.
