Other side South Africa scored 361 runs all out in their first innings and they faced almost equal overs then England’s first innings. MM Ali took four wickets, JM Anderson, SCJ Broad and LA Dawson these three took two wickets each of them. England scored 233 runs in their second innings all out in 87.1 overs and South Africa all out at 119 in their second innings. MM Ali took six wickets in that innings.
The pitch being used is the same as that for the 2015 Ashes. Yes, Broad’s 8 for 15 and all that. Trent Bridge usually aids swings and seam, which might actually be to South Africa’s liking after a surprise trial by spin at Lord’s. The forecast is generally clear throughout the Test, although temperatures may be on the cooler side. The suspension of Rabada and dropping of Duminy, as well as du Plessis’ return, means South Africa have some rejigging to do. Duanne Olivier has been confirmed as Rabada’s replacement but they still have a decision to make over whether to stick with Theunis de Bruyn or bring in Chris Morris to further strengthen the bowling. Having stuck with the same 12-man squad, England named an unchanged team – meaning Toby Roland-Jones continues to wait for a Test debut. With Moeen Ali now considered a “batsman who bowls a bit” and Liam Dawson in the side as the main spinner, they appear a balanced side.
