Hashim Amla exits as South Africa grind Eng down

17 July 2017

Joe Root senses his pedigree seam attack will have conditions to suit against South Africa on their return to a favourite hunting ground at Trent Bridge.

However, a odd incident led to an injury concern for the hosts.

Stokes remained on the turf unaware about his camoflauged boxer shorts being on display as Stuart Broad and James Anderson were first to check on him.

The second test gets under way on Friday, before the teams then meet at The Oval and Old Trafford. Captain Joe Root led from the front with a resplendent 190 in the first innings, which set the tone for English dominance for most of the match. "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".

"It might be that the seamers play a bigger part this week, and that excites me", he said.

South Africa were without Kagiso Rabada after the fast bowler was suspended from the match as a result of swearing at Ben Stokes in the Lord's Test. Yesterday he was hammered for 14 in one over by Amla, which can happen to a spinner, but it appears he has been identified as a weaker link by South Africa, which makes life hard for Root. The Proteas have only suffered consecutive defeats once since 2009.

"They are a strong side with lots of experience. We probably didn't get it quite right with that second new ball".

But ask any of the South African supporters who have given Trent Bridge a light smattering of green over the past three days, and spent their evenings knocking the froth off some ales in the beer garden of Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem under Nottingham Castle, and they will not hesitate in reminding you this number is in fact five.

Anderson picked up three more wickets to finish with figures of 5-72 as South Africa crumbled from 309-6 to 335 all out.

"We're going to go in with the same team", Root said.

Lobbyist at Trump camp meeting denies Russian intelligence connection
Democrats are complaining that it's just a delaying tactic, and the revised version will probably never see the light of day. Now that they can use Moscow to attack President Trump , however, the Russians are suddenly our greatest enemy again.

"Our message after Lord's was that we hadn't become bad players overnight and that we should clear our minds and put those bad thoughts to bed", added Elgar, the stand-in skipper at the "home of cricket" after du Plessis was absent following the birth of his first child.

England have not won any of their past three series, taking victory in only four of 13 Tests along the way. There's time to fight back.

Transformation is created to cope with the legacy of apartheid, when largely only white players such as Pollock, one of the greatest batsmen in cricket history, were allowed to play for official South Africa sides.

Can England summon the spirit of Mike Atherton - who memorably defied the South Africa attack to earn a draw at Johannesburg in 1995 - to win or save this one?
