  1. Post substitute

    • Kagiso Rabada (South Africa) has claimed at
      least four wickets in three of his closing four Test innings at St George’s Park
      in Port Elizabeth; he is the main wicket-taker in this unusual series with
      England heading into the Third Test (12).
  2. Post substitute

    Ah. The preamble is finished. Right here is Kagiso Rabada, changing Vernon Philander.

  3. Post substitute

    Phil Tufnell

    Ex-England spinner on The Cricket Social

    It appears flattish – it be usually a little bit of bit leisurely and low at Port Elizabeth. In all likelihood they’ve left this dwell grass on to befriend it preserve together.

  4. Post substitute

    Daniel Norcross

    The Cricket Social

    It appears an absolute belter of a pitch.

  5. Eng 17-0

    Dane Paterson bangs one in brief – too brief – and it be called a broad. It takes some doing to fetch the ball that excessive on this pitch. Even so, Quinton de Kock takes the ball around his waist. This pitch is sloowwww.

  6. SMS Message: I’m backing England for 400-plus. Thumbs up need to you potentially would possibly maybe maybe well maybe be with me. from Joe in Buxton

    I’m backing England for 400-plus. Thumbs up need to you potentially would possibly maybe maybe well maybe be with me.

  7. Eng 14-0

    Crawley 7, Sibley 3

    Faf de Plessis throws his hands up within the air at plod when Zak Crawley performs a nice forward defence. Per chance he is upright making an try to convince himself that it be no longer going to be a long, long day within the grime.

    The band are onto a livelier quantity with a pair of fans joining in a with an ‘ole’.

    Enact they lift requests?

  8. Post substitute

    Phil Tufnell

    Ex-England spinner on The Cricket Social

    Or no longer it is persistently a miniature of embarrassing when the preserve stands up to the fresh-ball bowler.

  9. Eng 14-0

    Six overs long previous and Quinton de Kock is up to the stumps to Vernon Philander.

  10. Post substitute

    Isabelle Westbury

    Ex-Middlesex captain on The Cricket Social

    Paterson appears to be like to be bowling in a actually the same vein to Philander.

  11. Eng 14-0

    Per chance Faf du Plessis is making an try to befriend Dane Paterson set away with any early nerves on debut. The 30-yr-extinct upright-arm seamer is rarely at all times actually doing anything else depraved but he is no longer establishing potentialities either. This pitch is flat.

  12. Post substitute

    Or no longer it is miles a actually leisurely pitch – there isn’t this form of thing as a tempo in this at all. What a likelihood England non-public here of grinding South Africa within the heat and positioned on on that elusive first-innings total.

  13. Eng 12-0

    Crawley 7, Sibley 1

    I’m in a position to depend 10 locals with customary trumpets, a pair of drummers and one other fella with a huge white tuba-form thing within the brass band. If anyone can let me know what instrument in actuality is then that’d be worthy.

    Or no longer it is brilliant to order Shaun Pollock is as at a loss for words as I’m as to why Kagiso Rabada is no longer bowling.

  14. Eng 12-0

    Right here is mainly the most important boundary off the bat. Gigantic Vern bowls a rare brief and broad shipping. Zak Crawley climbs in with a lower.

  15. Eng 8-0

    Dane Paterson has better facial hair than KG Rabada. That’s about it. He drifts down the leg facet a pair of cases in his 2nd over and the last ball flicks Dom Sibley’s thigh pad en route to the boundary.

    The PE brass band is getting itself going. Horny.

  16. Post substitute

    Phil Tufnell

    Ex-England spinner on The Cricket Social

    This South Africa facet are there for beating. It modified into as soon as a worthy purchase at Cape Town for England – that’s going to give them a lot of self assurance.

  17. Eng 2-0

    Crawley 2, Sibley 0

    The TV crew non-public already picked up on a swap Crawley has made to his strategy. Or no longer it is working to this level.

  18. Post substitute

    Phil Tufnell

    Ex-England spinner on The Cricket Social

    There would possibly maybe be a miniature of dwell grass on the pitch and the uncommon one is nibbling around.

  19. Eng 2-0

    A elegance. That’s Vernon Philander at his excellent. Zak Crawley is upright fortunate he hasn’t edged it.

  20. How’s stat?!
