SA vs ENG, second Test: England's position very strong, on second day at stumps, second innings score - 218/4



England have strengthened their position on the third day of the Cape Town Test against South Africa.  In response to England's 269, South Africa's first innings ended on 223 runs and by the stumps on the third day, England had scored 218/4 in the second innings, taking their total lead to 264 runs.

 On the third day, South Africa were restricted to 223 for the first innings and England got a lead of 46 runs.  James Anderson took five wickets in the innings, bowling brilliantly.  Vernon Philander was unbeaten on 17, while Enrique Nortje scored 4 and Kagiso Rabada was out without opening an account.

 England got their first blow in the second innings as Jack Crowley (25) scored on 28.  After this, Dominic Sibli added 73 runs with Joe Denly (31) for the second wicket and took the team to 100.  Sibli completed his first Test half-century and added 116 runs for the third wicket with captain Joe Root to take the team's lead to 250.

However, South Africa bounced back after Rut (61) was dismissed at 217 before stumps and Dominic Bess was dismissed without opening an account at 218.  On the fourth day of the match, South Africa's team would like to capitalize on the return made on the third day and try to keep England's lead within 350.  Dominic Sibley was unbeaten on 85 at the time of stumps.

 For South Africa, Enrique Nortje has taken two wickets and Kagiso Rabada and Dwayne Pretorius have taken one wicket each.

 Abridged Scorecard:

 England: 269 and 218/4

 South Africa: 223
