root playing a good, counter attacking innings here, which is why I always think he should be no. 3.

ANyway, these two will have to bat long if the test is to be saved.

Saved??? It's still there to be WON!

Saved!? Might be some dodgy weather today, but not enough to take much time out of the game. Can't see this being anything other than a result match, with England currently as well placed as the South Africans.

Ballance goes, first ball from Philander after lunch. Could still fall in a heap here.

Could well do do but this pair is excellent and Stokes and Ali are both great on the counterattack so game still pretty well poised at this point, albeit slightly in SA's favor.

Excellent knock by Joe Root while it lasted, but with his fall to Morkel, England are in need of something special (again) from Stokes, Moeen and Bairstow.

Maharaj the unlikely destroyer. Once again, in real trouble now.

Oh dear. England are deep in the mire now. At least Dawson didn't record a fourth consecutive duck.

Nice work from Maharaj. Yep, England indeed in huge strife now. Somehow need to cobble together another 70-80 runs at least and then bowl brilliantly in 2nd innings.

Looks ominous. But good game to fight back in.

Scoreboard pressure cuts up our vaunted middle order. Time for a bash to cut the deficit ?

Moeen to hit a century and win MoM in two consecutive tests. You heard it here first.

ETA: Haha.

As long as he doesn't play any brainless shots and fall into a trap marked elephant trap.

Easy to play with runs on the board - not so much when scoreboard pressure.

Now, now, he's played come-from-behind rearguard counterattacking centuries before...

Difficult to see how SA don't level the series from here. Surviving until the end of the day looks bad enough

Yep SA will need to play pretty badly to lose from here. Worryingly for England, Rabada will be back to further boost the attack in the next game.
