Stokes onslaught takes Test away from Proteas

Ben Stokes launched a memorable blitz on the Proteas to effectively take any chance of a home win out of the equation on day four of the second Test match at Newlands on Monday.

The England’s all-rounder’s onslaught was as unorthodox as it was effective as he shared a partnership of 92 with Dom Sibley and contributed 72 off the runs scored off just 47 balls with 7 fours and 3 sixes.


Sibley leads way as England consolidate their lead

Dominic Sibley led the way with a career best innings and every chance of converting it into a maiden Test match century as England ground their way towards an invincible position on day three of the second Test match against the Proteas at Newlands on Sunday.

England closed the day on 218/4 for an overall lead of 264 runs with one of the four wickets being that of night watchman Dom Bess who departed for a pair in the match.


Anderson, Broad plot Proteas collapse

The old firm of Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad took charge as England bowled themselves back into the series and an almost certain first innings lead on day two of the second Test match against the Proteas at Newlands on Saturday. The Proteas finished the day on 215/8, still 54 runs in arrears with only Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje left to bat with Vernon Philander.

Just how significant England’s likely first innings advantage will be remains to be seen but bearing in mind that this has been an unusually low scoring New Year Test match with 18 wickets having fallen for less than 500 runs it looks like being important.


Philander sets up commanding lead for Proteas

Vernon Philander exploited conditions very much to his liking on his last tour of international duty as he led the Proteas to a significant 103-run lead on the first innings on the second day of the first Test match against England at SuperSport Park, Centurion, on Friday.

England struck back with four wickets when the Proteas batted again but they had nevertheless extended their lead to 175 by the close of play.


India thump South Africa to take series 3-0

India needed just two overs to wrap up the final Freedom Series Test match against the South Africa at Ranchi on Tuesday by an innings and 202 runs margin and clinch a 3-0 series triumph and, with it, 120 points in the ICC World Test Championship. Shahbaz Nadeem took the remaining two wickets in successive balls, the final one in bizarre fashion when he dismissed Lungi Ngidi caught and bowled as the ball deflected off the non-striker, Anrich Nortje.

Rohit Sharma was named both Man of the Match and Man of the Series for his aggregate of more than 500 runs that included three centuries, one of them being a double.
