On a track, which is considered a picture made pitch for fast bowlers, the hosts won the toss and opted to bat first. The South African team is lead by ODI skipper, AB De Villers as Hashim Amla stepped down from captaincy after the 2nd test match. The hosts got a bad news just before the game when wicket keeper Q De Cock was ruled out of the match due to knee injury and D Vilas was called in hurry to play in the match as they were running short of one player.
After winning the toss, SA started really well and both the openers got good start, but the past story continued for them as the batsman failed to make big out of their starts. H Amla was looking solid in his 40 but was dismissed by S Finn with a beauty. Captain AB was looking positive with his shots but was dismissed on 36 and brought huge cheers for the visitors. All the batsman of South Africa contributed for their side but by the end of the day, highest score remained 40 only. S Finn was the standout bowler for England who picked up 2 crucial wickets. Ben Stokes, who thrashed bowlers in the 2nd test took the key wicket of De Villers who was looking set to play a big knock.
On day 2 of the 3rd SA Vs Eng Test, England will look to dismiss the African side for around 300 and make the best out of their batting. The absence of D Steyn in this match will affect the bowling line up of Proteas. The batting line up of England lies around captain Cook, Joe Root and Ben Stokes.
