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

England started off the 4th Test batting after rain affected the start of play. Match start was delayed, however, still, 54 overs were bowled on DAY1 of the Test match.  England has lost 4 wickets on a score of 192 at the end of DAY1. Now they would start DAY2 with Joe Root and Ollie at the crease. South Africa had it good so far but they have to dismantle English middle and lower middle-order early in order to gain some early advantage in this final Test match.

In the absence of Rabada, the new bowlers have responded well and rose to the occasion for South Africa. All bowlers except Dwaine Pretorius took one wicket each. Now is the time for Joe Root to play that anchor role which we all are used to see from him and take England team to a respectable total in the first innings, Let us watch it live how England cricket team performs on DAY2 of the Wanderers Test.

W
OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Anrich Nortje. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Another strangle down the legside which is backed up by the technology. Good use of the review system from Root to wrap up the game and the series. 3-1 in South Africa is a brilliant effort from this young England side.Super day of Test cricket which see-sawed both ways. First England were on top then South Africa battled back and asked the English camp plenty of questions. Once the partnership between the impressive Rassie van der Dussen and Faf du Plessis was broken though the rest fell like a pack of cards.Hard fought series between two tough teams and now it is all eyes on the white ball arena which starts on the 4th February.

Hug mix-up in the middle as Nortje sprints for the single but his partner is ball watching. Both end up at one end with the ball going to the other.

OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Woakes. That's the wicket England were after. It was always going to be nervy while de Kock was at the crease, especially when he's swinging the bat. One shot too mamy though and Woakes takes a simple chance.

Nice touch also from the England players to go up to him and shake his hand. What a man.

OUT! Caught. Dane Paterson to Stuart Broad. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Malan. Wicket! Broad departs for 43 after an incredible knock. England end on 400 all out, after the collapse at the end of the first session runs from Woakes, Wood and Broad helped the cause massively. South Africa will be downhearted after that last wicket partnership, they need to keep out the bowlers early on in this innings if they want to have any chance of catching England up.

Beuran Hendricks to Ollie Pope. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Pretorius. Good morning and welcome to the second day of the fourth test in Johannesburg. After a great start to day one England in the second session let their grip on the test win slip with four wickets falling in quick succession, so momentum is very much with South Africa. At the moment, Root and Pope are at the crease for England who sit on 192 for 4, the home side will be desperate to see the back of these two after Pope's destructive innings in PE, he has the capability of replicating that innings with Root. It's all set for day two, things still hang in the balance for both teams.

Beuran Hendricks to Ollie Pope. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, hit pad to leg gully for no runs, fielded by du Plessis. The umpires decide the light isn't good enough for the players to continue, so that will be it for the day. What a fabulous evening session that was. A right ding-dong battle between bat and ball across those two hours. Test cricket at it's finest. South Africa showed much more aggression, as each of the main seamers picked up a wicket. Joe Root and Ollie Pope were able to steady things for the visitors after that until close. Overall, England are perhaps slightly ahead with the amount of runs on the board, but the first session tomorrow will be an intriguing one.

Loose drive from Stokes, and the edge loops through to first slip for another catch to Rassie. Not a great shot from the all-rounder. Hadn't got himself in yet and used to the wicket. A lazy drive with not much weight going into the stroke, and he has to go. South Africa are on a roll!

It's a peach of a delivery from Paterson, and Denly doesn't survive this time. He plays down the line, a bit of nip off the deck, and the edge is taken. The ball loops through to van der Dussen at first slip. It's been a good recovery by the hosts this evening.

The hundred partnership is brought up in style by Sibley. On his hip, and nudged away expertly past the leg gully fielder for four.A perfect session for the away side. When it was overcast at the toss, there were questions about Joe Root opting to bat first, but those have been firmly answered. Zak Crawley notched up his first fifty in the England whites, and Dom Sibley has supported him well. Not much to cheer about for South Africa. Vernon Philander did get Sibley caught at gully, but he overstepped to give the opener a lifeline. Apart from that, the hosts have been poor. What will the evening session bring us?

APPEAL! Vernon Philander to Dominic Sibley. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Bavuma, appeal made for L.B.W. Textbook Philander line and length. He gets the ball to nibble back into Sibley, and there is a big shout for leg before. Far too high for the umpire to consider that. The impact was on the thigh, and the ball would've cleared the stumps comfortably.

Start of England Innings. Welcome to the fourth and final Test of the series between South Africa and England. There has been some dreadful weather around in Johannesburg, but it looks like we will get some cricket in. England have won the toss at the Wanderers and elected to bat first. The series currently stands at 2-1 to the visitors, so there is plenty to play for in this last match. England have the momentum after winning the last two, but things can quickly change in this format. One change for the away side as Chris Woakes comes in for Dom Bess. A few changes for South Africa as well, with the suspended Kagiso Rabada making way. Zubayr Hazma and Keshav Maharaj also miss out. All the experts are expecting a spicy wicket, so it could be a tricky period for the English batsmen early on.

OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Dane Paterson. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Wicket! Paterson out after the four, he backs away for this ball, this time the outside edge goes to Buttler and South Africa are all out for 183. Poor batting display from the home side, the only solid partnership was from de Kock and Pretorius, apart from that, lacklustre from South Africa.

Mark Wood to Vernon Philander. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Wood. Day three of this test match and England are in control of this one, they have the home side 88 for 6 in their first innings, some poor batting on display by South Africa in their innings, the only glimmer of hope is that they still have de Kock out there, he has the potential of getting lots of runs if he stays out there. Wood the pick of the bowlers yesterday with three wickets, all the bowlers yesterday were good value though, bowling a tight line and length, not letting the home side get any runs early on. England have a chance of forcing the follow-on today if they get the final four wickets, lets see if they can finish this game off early.

Great day for England with bat and ball, the late cameo by Wood and Broad set the tone for the bowling, South Africa in disarray they trail by 312 with only four wickets remaining. England have taken a commanding lead today, let's see what tomorrow has in store for us.

Another strangle down the legside which is backed up by the technology. Good use of the review system from Root to wrap up the game and the series. 3-1 in South Africa is a brilliant effort from this young England side.Super day of Test cricket which see-sawed both ways. First England were on top then South Africa battled back and asked the English camp plenty of questions. Once the partnership between the impressive Rassie van der Dussen and Faf du Plessis was broken though the rest fell like a pack of cards.Hard fought series between two tough teams and now it is all eyes on the white ball arena which starts on the 4th February.

Now England can go into the break breathing a little easier while it will be a very quiet South Africa camp. Such an important session coming up if the Proteas want to get something out of this match.

The plan has worked from England, although they would have expected Rassie to get caught on in the deep. Field was set for the short ball but it was the full one which got Rassie tentatively driving on the up. England are pumped up.

OUT! Bowled. Ben Stokes to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, bottom edge to. Whenever England need a spark they turn to one man and he always delivers. Stokes hits a crack and gets the ball to keep low, catching the bottom of the bat. Unfortunate for Faf to drag on after playing so well and dealing with some brutal deliveries. Is that the breakthrough England needed?
