OUT! Bowled. Kagiso Rabada to Stuart Broad. Yorker, off stump backing away driving, missed to. Broad gone! Rabada gets his fourth, yorker into Broad's toes, he backs away and gets bowled. England have lost this one convincingly after a collapse in their first innings. A great win for South Africa as they take a lead in this series 1-0. Overall the bowling won them this game, having only got 284 from their first innings. Philander was incredible keeping England at bay in the second innings, then Rabada and Nortje taking seven wickets in the fourth gave South Africa a much needed win. De Kock in the first innings scored a scrappy 95 to get South Africa to a respectable score and from their England were in melt-down, lots to improve on from them going into the second test.

OUT! Caught. Stuart Broad to Vernon Philander. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. South Africa all out! Philander's nicks one to Buttler for 35, good for England to get them all out early in the day, so the batters can focus on the task in hand. De Kock the main contributor with 95, many with starts for South Africa but only one batter cashed in. Good bowling from England but lots of work to be done by the opening pair.

Runs : 2 Bowler: Stuart Broad Wickets : 1
Good morning and welcome to the second day of the first test match in the series between South Africa and England at Centurion. Things remain in the balance here with South Africa 277 for 9, England need one more scalp to bat, they will want to limit the damage of the two tail-enders, especially with the new ball flying off the bat potentially giving South Africa much needed runs. England's star bowler yesterday was Curran who picked up 4 wickets yesterday, he kept the ball swinging even in the latter overs of the day, as for South Africa, de Kock made an impressive 95, falling just short of a century after Curran got him to nick one to Buttler. Today, England need to make sure they get a strong partnership going between Burns and Sibley, one of the main issues this side has faced is in the batting, you feel that this is the pitch that they can prove themselves on with it giving minimal amounts of seam movement, most of the movement is coming from swing which should help England get a lead in this game.

OUT! Bowled. Stuart Broad to Kagiso Rabada. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. End of day 1, Broad bowls Rabada with the last ball of the day, things are in the balance for both teams, South Africa with a decent runs tally so far thanks to a quick fire 95 from de Kock, as for England a decent day in the field, Curran the pick of the bowlers, England need one more wicket to get into bat and try and get a hold on this game.

OUT! Caught. Jofra Archer to Keshav Maharaj. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Stokes. Out! Maharaj is caught by Stokes low down at second slip, good catch. Maharaj wafts at one ouside off, gets an edge and is caught, lots of work for the slips to do this innings. Archer with the wicket he so desperately needed, he looked relieved to have one, now he can push on and finish this tail with some raw pace, hopefully.

A mixed bag for both teams, after the loss of Faf mid-way through the session England had a great chance of getting into a commanding position, however, Pretorius and de Kock have turned defence into attack and showed their quality against this bowling line-up, scoring runs freely, some risks have been taken, de Kock has had a few lifelines but overall a very good partnership has been built by these two.

Stuart Broad to Rassie van der Dussen. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Curran. That maiden over brings lunch. A decent start for England with South Africa losing three wickets in the session. Not the most consistent bowling display you will see, but South Africa haven't capitalised on the bowling from England. Archer bowling quick has given England a new dimension they missed when he was bowling slower in New Zealand, the addition of Anderson means he can be used a their gun-fast bowler as opposed to the opening bowler role he played in New Zealand. The late wicket of Hamza means du Plessis and van der Dussen are at the crease. England need a few wickets this next session to give them the advantage going into the final session, with the hope of getting South Africa close to all out at the end of the day.

Start of South Africa Innings. Good morning and welcome to the first day of the first test between South Africa and England at Centurion. A big game for both teams here with both experiencing struggles with their batting in recent years. The big news in the England camp is James Anderson is set to play his 150th test match today, an incredible achievement from the swing bowler. South Africa have made big changes with their backroom staff, this will be the first test match the new look Cricket South Africa will see, so the pressure is on the players to prove they belong in the side. Pope might be a doubt for England with him suffering from the virus that has effected a few of the England players the past week. If he does miss out, Bairstow will take his place with a point to prove in this series after he was dropped for the two-match series against New Zealand. With both teams below average in the past few years in test match cricket, both will want a change in fortune just before we head into 2020.

Welcome to the third day at Supersport Park. South Africa start the day with a lead of 175 and history suggests that anything over 250 at the ground will be a stiff task to chase in the final innings. England will look to be aggresive this morning and blow away this South African middle order as quick as possible. Bad news coming out of the England camp this morning, Jos Buttler has come down with the flu that is sweeping through the squad and Johnny Bairstow is going to take the gloves until lunchtime at the earliest, for the Proteas, Aiden Markram has broken his finger and will be out for the remainder of the series

OUT! Bowled. Kagiso Rabada to Stuart Broad. Yorker, off stump backing away driving, missed to. Broad gone! Rabada gets his fourth, yorker into Broad's toes, he backs away and gets bowled. England have lost this one convincingly after a collapse in their first innings. A great win for South Africa as they take a lead in this series 1-0. Overall the bowling won them this game, having only got 284 from their first innings. Philander was incredible keeping England at bay in the second innings, then Rabada and Nortje taking seven wickets in the fourth gave South Africa a much needed win. De Kock in the first innings scored a scrappy 95 to get South Africa to a respectable score and from their England were in melt-down, lots to improve on from them going into the second test.

Burns tries to pull Nortje to the boundary, he has no control over this shot and he top-edges it into the air, a simple catch for Rabada, England on the ropes early on day four.

Runs : 3 Bowler: Keshav Maharaj Wickets : 0
Day four, big day ahead for both sides, England and South Africa are both in this one after a big opening partnership between Burns and Sibley got England off to the perfect start in their second innings, now they trail by 255 with 9 wickets in hand, Burns ended day three with a solid 77 not out, Denly with him on 10. The pitch yesterday looked to be in good shape, hopefully for England the pitch will remain in the same condition today, another factor that played into the visitors hands was the off-target South African seamers, with them not playing like they did in the first innings we could see a huge difference in quality from the English batters, if England can pull this off this will be one of the greatest ever victories, especially considering the virus that has been going round the squad the last week or so.

Keshav Maharaj to Joe Denly. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Nortje. That ends the day. England have done far better than everyone expected with this last sessions being accredited to them. The rest of the day, however, belongs to South Africa with Rassie van der Dussen and Anrich Nortje putting on a 94 run partnership in the morning to set up a huge total for England to chase. Jofra Archer picked up another test five wicket haul but all the bowlers today will say they didn't get the ball in the right areas enough. England need 255 tomorrow which looks far more gettable with nine wickets left and if Joe Root and Jos Buttler are fit enough to bat.
