South Africa in charge of 2nd test after tumultuous Day 2

16 July 2017

They therefore conceded a first-innings deficit of 130, despite Anderson's 5-72, and were 205 adrift after South Africa reached 75-1 at stumps second time round.

"We did well to bowl them out for 350 but didn't get it right with the bat".

Ballance did initially flourish after making his debut in the final Test of the 2013-14 Ashes series in Sydney, going on to score three centuries the following northern summer.

The problem is he is not facing the quality (or perhaps more importantly, the pace) of bowling that he is up against when he plays the Proteas, and looking further down the line, Australia - in Australia.

Dollar dips after weak consumer prices data
The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index .FTEU3 of leading shares rebounded to rise 0.10 percent and close at 1520.41. The British pound gained significantly relative to the greenback, moving up by 1.11% to climb above the $1.30 level.

With conditions still ideal for seam bowling, South Africa made light work of removing England's openers - Alastair Cook caught behind off Philander (2-48) off a thin inside edge and Keaton Jennings edging the very next delivery, from Morkel, behind as it straightened on him. "Jimmy knows his body, he's obviously had a couple of injury issues over the course of this year and I think he's just been smart with the way that he practises".

Pollock's own Test career was cut short in 1970, after just 23 matches in which he had already scored 2,256 runs, including seven hundreds, by an anti-apartheid boycott that saw South Africa exiled from official worldwide cricket for over two decades. They're likely to field the same XI at Trent Bridge.

It is no coincidence that South Africa's resurgence this match has come following the return of their captain, Faf du Plessis.

With the likely value loser out of the way there, let's look to make sure we walk away from the game with a profit by taking on Sky Bet's 28.5 line for South Africa's opening partnership. With Rabada due back at The Oval, there is an argument that South Africa may even have the better of two quality attacks.

Muguruza acknowledges Martinez impact in Wimbledon run
Muguruza has enlisted the help of 1994 Wimbledon champion and fellow Spaniard Conchita Martinez for her All England Club campaign. She has dropped just one set in the entire tournament and even at the age of 37, appears to be playing he best tennis.

Broad, 31, suffered a repeat of his heel injury leading up to the First Test, but he was running in with speed and goal here. South Africa were shot out for 335, having added only 26 runs in the morning.

England have named an unchanged line-up from the Lord's opener, sticking with three seamers in Broad, James Anderson and Mark Wood, with Liam Dawson and Moeen Ali - who took match figures of 10-112 - retained as the spin options.

Success at Trent Bridge would give them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series over a South Africa side they have not beaten in a home series since 1998. Du Plessis is [4.9] but with no warm-ups under his belt he might need time to find his feet.

England must increasingly manage Anderson's physical well-being and workload as they try to ensure they get the most out of him at an advanced stage of his outstanding career.
