England reach 260-6 at stumps on day one against South Africa

England reach 260-6 at stumps on day one against South Africa

In view of England's fluctuating Test form, the need for consistency among the bowlers has been a topic of conversation in the England group.

Before play, a presentation was made to James Anderson after the Pavilion End at Old Trafford, his Lancashire home ground, was officially renamed the James Anderson End in honour of EnglandĀ“s all-time leading Test wicket-taker.

A Root and Stokes partnership is always a threat for England and the pair were laying the foundations for a fruitful collaboration, putting on 43, before Olivier trapped the England skipper leg before. Having nearly nicked Morkel behind, the captain then followed the bad example set by his departed team-mates in offering a thick edge of his own, only for De Kock to inexplicably fail to dive.

Cook was first to go, caught behind by Quinton de Kock off the bowling of spinner Keshav Maharaj for 46, and the fielders' celebration showed the importance of his wicket.

Westley, in just his second Test, walked out to join Essex colleague Cook with England 35 for one in the 13th over.

Stokes and Jonny Bairstow (33 not out) kept the South African attack at bay with their 65 run stand for the sixth wicket with the Durham all-rounder completing another fine half century. "The last session with the new ball we had a few play and misses which was unlucky but credit to them, they batted well in that situation. It swayed our way a bit because we only need to get four more wickets tomorrow".

"The way he played in that second innings was extremely great to see, I'm pleased that he's been able to get a score and hopefully that'll lead to some more runs this week".

Parojinog's daughter, Nova Princess Parojinog-Echavez, the city's vice-mayor, and said she would face charges. Their camp allegedly resisted when they were served 6 search warrants for firearms at around 2:30 a.m.


Just which team is on top at this stage is hard to say.

Farbrace on day two: "We've got to get ourselves at least another 100".

"Vernon at 90 per cent doesn't mean you can do that, because you don't want to be in a position where you have a seamer break down and then you only have two - that basically is the Test match over right there and then".

"If you're in the England team there is alway someone knocking on the door for your place, whether they're here breathing down your neck or doing it in the championship".

"This was just another opportunity to keep (Hameed) in the fold and make him realise he's very much part of the future of the England cricket team".

The Champions Trophy turned out to be an unmitigated disaster as the Proteas again choked on their own press clippings and made another early exit in an global tournament run by the worldwide Cricket Council.

That would bring Duanne Olivier back into contention, after being dropped following South Africa's second-Test success at Trent Bridge in order to accommodate the return at The Oval of Kagiso Rabada from his one-match ban.
