South Africa vs England – 2nd Test, Day 3: Live score and updates

South Africa vs England DAY THREE LIVE: Hosts resume first innings on 215-8 after tourists battle back in second Test led by James Anderson

  • The second Test between South Africa and England got underway on Friday
  • England battled back against South Africa after taking eight wickets on day two 
  • Dean Elgar had eventually been dismissed for 88 after slicing Dom Bess’ delivery 
  • The tourists had been bowled out for 269 with Ollie Pope offering late resistance 

England bowled with skill and heart to drag themselves back into contention in the second Test against South Africa, but Stuart Broad paid the price for over-stepping on a hard-fought day in Cape Town.

Having been dismissed out for an under-powered 269 the tourists kept the home side’s scoring on a leash and built pressure at either end of day two, with the Proteas reaching stumps 54 behind on 215 for eight.

James Anderson finished with three for 34, Broad struck twice in a tone-setting early blast, while Sam Curran and Dom Bess played sound supporting roles, but the tourists might have been even better set.
