England vs South Africa 2nd Test Day 2 Highlights July 15, 2017

Eng v SA highlights today – second test day two from Trent Bridge, Nottingham (England) Saturday 15th July 2017. South Africa won the toss and F du Plessis captain of the SA team chose to bat first and they scored 309 runs with six down in 90 overs yesterday. D Elgar opener of the SA team had not survived for so long and out by scoring six runs only, HG Kuhn contributed 34 runs off 87 balls, HM Amla scored 78 runs and out when it was 58.4 134.1 kph, and this time he’s found deep square leg! He’s been flirting with that dismissal throughout the innings. A short ball from Broad, around off stump, Amla can’t keep it down and the top edge this time reaches the fielder – Wood near the rope 194/4.

South Africa won the toss and elected to bat.

  • – day 1 – South Africa 1st innings 309/6 (VD Philander 54*, CH Morris 23*, 90 ov)

Match Timings: 11:00 local time (10:00 GMT)

Q de Kock† tried his best with contributing 68 runs off 81 balls to his team scoreboard and out when 52.1 131.3 kph, strikes first ball! As so often, the interval does the trick. A length ball outside off, de Kock goes after it, aiming to play square through the off side, and it flies off the top edge to Cook at first slip 179/3. Captain F du Plessis scored 19, T Bavuma 20, VD Philander 54 not out, CH Morris 23 not out. SCJ Broad took three wickets, BA Stokes two and JM Anderson one.
