But what about this stat: Every batsman reached double-figures in the innings with none going onto make fifty. That is some stat. Shows that South Africa haven't converted their starts. But with a four-pronged pace attack, they will come out hard. I'm eagerly waiting to see how Viljoen goes on this. He is a bustling bull of a guy and has impressed for the Lions in the domestic circuit. We will be back shortly for the chase...

So the South African innings has lasted close to 50 minutes today. Morris and Rabada fell early but the last-wicket pair of Morkel and Viljoen frustrated the English. Broad kept bowling short and Viljoen punished him. Anderson was taken off the attack for running on the danger area for the second time. Can't quite remember when he was warned first time in the innings. Maybe that's what Anderson was trying to convince Aleem Dar. Stokes came on and struck first ball to end the innings. Bairstow missed out on the chance to grab a record-equalling seventh catch in the innings when he dropped Morkel. A place in the record books missed there!

99.3 - Stokes to M Morkel, out Caught by Cook!! And he strikes first ball. That's the end of that. Full outside off, Morkel drives and gets a thick edge, comfortably held by Cook at first slip, above his head, reverse-cupping it in the process. After all the drama it needed just one ball to end the innings. The players run off. M Morkel c Cook b Stokes 12(20) [4s-1]

Stokes to M Morkel, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Ben Stokes [18.0-1-53-2] is back into the attack

What has happened here? Aleem Dar is having a word with Anderson and looks like there is an argument. Anderson is shaking his head. Cook is called in and the reason for that is Anderson has been warned for the second time in the innings for running on the danger area. And now he is off the attack. Anderson is a grumpy man already and he is distraught that he has been taken off the attack. Aleem Dar is a no-nonsense professional and despite all of Anderson's pleas, he stands by his decision. It looked pretty innocuous when it happened. Stokes will complete the over

99.2 - Anderson to M Morkel, no run, length delivery on off, pushed back towards Anderson's right

99.1 - Anderson to M Morkel, no run, dropped by Bairstow! Would've been his seventh catch of the innings. A thick edge as Morkel flayed at a ball outside off, Bairstow moved to his left and went with two hands, in front of first slip, the ball hits the wrist and goes down. He tried to catch it on the rebound but the ball was beyond his grasp as he took a tumble. Frustrating for Anderson and he is red-faced. That should've been taken, especially once the keeper got there

Viljoen 20(16) M Morkel 12(17) Broad 22-5-82-2

98.6 - Broad to Viljoen, FOUR, this has been a very poor over from Broad. Digging it in short again and again, pays the price for it. Sharp bouncer outside off, Viljoen pulls and top-edges it over the slip cordon. Raced away

98.5 - Broad to M Morkel, 1 run, short and angling down from round the wicket, Morkel lifts one leg up in the air and mistimes the pull, the ball rolls away to fine leg

98.4 - Broad to Viljoen, 1 run, angling in, towards off, Viljoen pushes it in front of the vacant mid-on, easy single

98.3 - Broad to Viljoen, no run, down leg again, Viljoen flicks and misses

98.2 - Broad to Viljoen, FOUR, four more. Short and angling down leg, Viljoen gets a bit of glove on the pull, beats Bairstow comfortably down leg. Viljoen was hurried by that short ball, but a bit of glove was all it needed as it was directed down leg

98.1 - Broad to Viljoen, FOUR, that's the 300. And a fine pull shot from Viljoen through mid-wicket. Dug in short outside off, Viljoen short-arm jabbed that and beats the desperate dive from the fielder in the deep. Hit well and beat the diving man

97.6 - Anderson to M Morkel, no run, may have been a slight inside edge onto the pad on the flick, Morkel failing to deal with a leg-side delivery properly. The ball rolls away to safety

97.5 - Anderson to M Morkel, no run, back of a length on the stumps, Morkel is back and across to block

97.4 - Anderson to M Morkel, no run, still short of length and Morkel pushes off the back foot to cover

97.3 - Anderson to M Morkel, no run, now Anderson pulls his length back and beats Morkel on the cut. Rising outside off, Morkel flashes and misses

97.2 - Anderson to M Morkel, no run, ooh! That is so close to taking the top of off and middle. Nipped in and beat Morkel's airy fairy drive on the rise, bounced over the stumps. Extra bounce denying Anderson a wicket there, it did everything except trim the bails

97.1 - Anderson to M Morkel, 2 runs, fullish on the stumps, Morkel gets forward and lifts it over point, didn't time it as well as he would've liked to, but got a couple for his efforts

96.3 - Broad to M Morkel, FOUR, fabulous stroke from Morkel. Past Viljoen as Broad overpitched outside off, came half-forward and then stroked it away with a high front elbow. All grace and timing from the man nicknamed Haydos

95.3 - Anderson to Viljoen, no run, wide of the crease and Anderson beats Viljoen again. Angled it in and then it straightened past the outside edge as Viljoen came forward to defend. He was playing close to his body, which meant the ball missed the edge

95.2 - Anderson to Viljoen, no run, length on the stumps, pushed back to Anderson

95.1 - Anderson to Viljoen, no run, close to the edge but no cigar. Bairstow wanted it though. Swung away from a good length and forced Viljoen to push at it, was very close to catching a feather

Three slips and a gully. Two men back for the short ball and a backward short leg

94.2 - Broad to M Morkel, 1 run, pushed in front of cover and Viljoen had to put on the skates to make it, does so as he sprints across to complete the single

Viljoen 4(1) M Morkel 3(2) Anderson 23-5-57-1

93.6 - Anderson to Viljoen, FOUR, what a start for Viljoen with the bat in Tests. An attempted yorker from Anderson, turns out to be a low full toss, punched past the diving mid-on. Just came forward and stroked it away. He will remember this moment for a long while

Three slips and a gully in place for Viljoen

93.5 - Anderson to M Morkel, 1 run, angled in on the hips, tucked to deep backward square leg, for a single

93.4 - Anderson to M Morkel, 2 runs, full outside off, Morkel gets forward and opens the face of the bat on the drive, gets a couple through point, is off the mark

Morne Morkel, left handed bat, comes to the crease

93.3 - Anderson to Rabada, out Caught by Bairstow!! There you go, that's the edge. And a sixth catch for Bairstow. The perfect line and length from Anderson, opens Rabada up on the back foot defence, a thick edge as the back of a length delivery climbs sharply and induces the error. Bairstow takes it to his left and throws the ball in delight. Pretty sure that Anderson must be the most happiest man at the Wanderers at the moment. That's a record-equalling catch by Bairstow at this venue as well. Rabada c Bairstow b Anderson 24(64) [4s-2 6s-1]

Anderson to Rabada, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

93.2 - Anderson to Rabada, no run, another delivery that beats Rabada's bat by a mile. Angled across Rabada and it bounces through to the keeper beating Rabada's attempt at a defence. He was nowhere near in any position to play that

93.1 - Anderson to Rabada, no run, meanwhile Anderson continues to bowl without any luck. Climbs sharply from a back of a length outside off and beats a fending Rabada's bat. No nick though

Hardus Viljoen, right handed bat, comes to the crease

A thick edge and a fifth catch for Bairstow. Simple dismissal. Morris' useful contribution comes to an end and the English team would be a relieved lot. C Morris c Bairstow b Broad 28(61) [4s-4]

Rabada 24(61) C Morris 28(55) Anderson 22-5-50-0

91.6 - Anderson to Rabada, no run, cracking delivery from Anderson. Rising and opening Rabada up, who was trying to flick, just brushes the back hip and through to the keeper. There was a mild appeal from the Englishmen but they knew that it had missed the bat

91.5 - Anderson to C Morris, 1 run, a thick outside edge this time as Morris hung his bat out to defend, bounces in front of Stokes at gully and he can't stop it cleanly. They take a single after the misfield

91.4 - Anderson to Rabada, 1 run, angling back in, Rabada tucks it to mid-on, a wild throw from Broad and he wrong-foots Bairstow, there is a fumble from the slip fielders but Morris had followed through and put his hand up to send Rabada back

91.3 - Anderson to Rabada, no run, good length and angled across once more, this time Rabada shoulders arms

91.2 - Anderson to Rabada, no run, angled across Rabada on a fuller length, the batsman was late in getting into line and covering for the angle, beaten by a long way

91.1 - Anderson to C Morris, 1 run, length delivery on the stumps, turned to square leg, easy single

This is turning out to be a irritating little stand

90.6 - Broad to Rabada, no run, back of a length outside off, Rabada leaves

90.5 - Broad to Rabada, byes, FOUR, again it is byes. This time down leg, Rabada pulled and missed, Bairstow dives to his right and the ball went under his glove. That's four more bonus runs to South Africa. Broad and England won't like that one bit

Two slips, a gully and a short leg in place

90.4 - Broad to Rabada, no run, full outside off, Rabada lets it go

90.3 - Broad to Rabada, no run, outside off, left alone

90.2 - Broad to Rabada, byes, FOUR, pacy bouncer, beats Rabada's pull and evades a leaping Bairstow who couldn't get a fingertip despite doing his very best. That was very quick from Broad and a sign that the wicket has quickened up from yesterday

90.1 - Broad to Rabada, 2 runs, pitched up outside off, Rabada just lifted that over Broad's head, mid-off was wide and they take a couple before the ball is hunted down. Just a checked drive in the air as Rabada came reluctantly forward

89.6 - Anderson to C Morris, no run, outswinger outside off, nicely carries to the keeper after Morris leaves

89.5 - Anderson to C Morris, no run, back of a length outside off, Morris hangs back and defends to point

Two slips and a gully in place

89.4 - Anderson to C Morris, no run, good length on the middle and leg line, Morris defends to mid-on

89.3 - Anderson to Rabada, 1 run, short on the stumps, Rabada swivels and then pulls to deep square leg. Rolled his wrists on the shot to play it

89.2 - Anderson to Rabada, no run, now Anderson squares Rabada up with a good length delivery on middle, the thick outside edge doesn't carry to backward point. Rabada was opened up but since Anderson's pace isn't great it didn't carry to the fielder

89.1 - Anderson to Rabada, no run, that's a tentative defence first up from Rabada. Wanted to leave that fourth-stump delivery alone, but the ball took the outer half and rolled to the slip cordon

There was rain in the morning but the conditions at the moment are sunny and bright. The players are out in the middle. We are all set for the action to begin. Anderson will start proceedings. Rabada is on strike. Yesterday he bowled well without luck, beating Rabada's bat many times. Let's see what he has in store today

Yesterday oddly seemed like a battle of weaknesses rather than the strengths. England kept their jaffas sandwiched between mediocre spells of bowling while South Africa picked up tame deliveries to handout their wickets. In the backdrop of the famed bowling duo looking conquered, Finn and Stokes reigned with Broad-like bounce and Anderson-like swing on an obliging and oddly grassy surface. Timely wickets denied a shoulder-drooping partnership until one for the 8th wicket where Rabada-Morris ticked it around corners to pile up 42 runs. Neither AB's flair nor Amla's serenity but Elgar's grit top-scored with 47. It's to be seen how many more South Africa's lower order can steal against a newish ball on a sweaty pitch under cloud-thronged skies.

Day 2: They say one should never trust a stranger and a limping dog. Being the cricket nerd and the compulsive quotation-tweaker that I'm, I'd suggest adding "weather forecasts" to that list of untrustworthy nonentities. It's another cloudy day at Johannesburg with "patches of rain" being the researched prophesy. But so was the case yesterday when we were able to sneak in 89 overs of unadulterated cricket, where the groundsmen didn't have to do the cover-carrying rain jogs. So, fingers and limbs and my whole torso crossed for another day devoid of rain. Pray to the Cricket God who according to many temples in Mumbai. Hello and welcome from Pratyush and I along with my co-commentator Srivathsa will bring you all the action from the Bullring today.

Five bowlers bowled for England today and surprisingly the only one to go wicket-less was the senior most James Anderson. He tried everything, including some sledging during the fag end of the day. Nothing worked though. But his off day was veiled by some decent stuff from Stokes and Finn. South Africa may have committed a mistake by changing their approach in the final session. The pitch has enough in it for the pacers and the Proteas had the opportunity to keep building their innings brick by brick after a solid first session. Instead, they took the other road only to allow England to claw back into the game. Tomorrow, England would want to wrap the tail up as early as possible notwithstanding the fact that Rabada and Morris have built a nice little partnership here. Considering that the pitch is bowler-friendly, the tourists would fancy their chances to optimize the morning freshness. Join us tomorrow at 10:30 local for all the action from day 2. Bye, take care!

Stumps, Day 1: A session which clearly belonged to the visitors, a day which has been shared. While the English bowlers kept it tight in the final session, it was the reckless approach from the Proteas which cost them 4 wickets. Right after tea, de Villiers could not resist the temptation and perished trying to pull. After the departure of the big fish, the onus was on du Plessis but he followed the skipper. And just when the commentators on air were praising Dane Vilas for his talent and sympathizing with him for getting dropped after a horrendous India tour, the wicket-keeper proved that his axing was not completely unjustified. Maybe he wanted to add a few quick runs before the new cherry was taken. But he would have been better off playing in the present rather than thinking about what was to come.

88.6 - Broad to C Morris, no run, whataay delivery! Broad ends day 1 with a jaffa. This one nipped back in late from a short length, Morris was groping at it but was beaten on the outside edge. The ball bounced extra after passing the batsman and caught everyone by surprise. Must say Morris and Rabada have survived some really great stuff from the English bowlers. To add insult to injury, the edges didn't carry and some landed safely

88.5 - Broad to C Morris, no run, smidgen fuller around fourth stump channel, Morris strides forward to block this in front of mid-off

88.4 - Broad to C Morris, no run, short and way down leg - how many times have we seen that today from Broad? I've certainly lost count. Morris leaves it for the keeper

88.3 - Broad to C Morris, no run, back of a length on the stumps, blocked back to the bowler

This will be the last over of the day...

88.2 - Broad to C Morris, no run, touch fuller and just outside off, Morris yells out a loud "no" as soon as he blocked this towards mid-off

88.1 - Broad to C Morris, no run, short and slipping down leg, Morris lets it go. Bairstow does well to move to his left and collect that

87.5 - Stokes to Rabada, 1 run, outside edge and safe! Rabada looks to push that through the off-side, gets a thick outside edge which dribbles down to third man. Do I need to mention that he played with soft hands?

87.4 - Stokes to Rabada, no run, just a CTRL C + CTRL V of the previous delivery, just that this ball rose higher than the previous one

87.3 - Stokes to Rabada, no run, swing and a miss! Beaten for the umpteenth time today. Short and outside off, Rabada looks to chop that on the jump but to no avail, beaten on the top-edge

86.3 - Anderson to Rabada, no run, this is the inswinger from Anderson, bowled from wider of the crease and then created the angle, too far outside off to entice a stroke from Rabada

86.2 - Anderson to Rabada, 2 runs, playing with soft hands - that's the key in Test cricket. Rabada just did that. He pushed with soft hands, hence the outside edge rolled safely wide of slip cordon

79.2 - Moeen Ali to Rabada, no run, tossed up on the stumps, blocked down the pitch

79.1 - Moeen Ali to Rabada, no run, flighted delivery and spinning away slightly, Rabada went hard on the cut and missed it by a hair's-breadth distance. Bairstow claimed the catch behind the stumps and his verdict proved to be in vain...

England review: Rabada is the man - NOT OUT is the signal from Aleem Dar. The appeal was for caught behind. Bairstow was dead-confident on that. UltraEdge shows absolutely nothing. Nobody appealed and it was more of a tactical review I reckon. Reviews will be reinstated after this over. So England had nothing to lose...

Just one more over to go before the bowlers have a sniff at the second new ball...

74.4 - Broad to Dane Vilas, out Caught by Moeen Ali!! Good catch from Moeen Ali at fine leg. Kept his eyes on the ball despite facing the sun. Broad will be a relieved man. Yet again he tries the short stuff, this time against a settled Vilas. He pulls and could only manage a big, booming top-edge which loops high in the air towards Moeen. He ain't dropping that. For all that drama that was built before the start of the game, Vilas decides to throw it away after what has been an innings of patience and class. Remember, he was in Port Elizabeth before the start of this game. It's nearly 1000 kms away from J'burg and now he had a long, long walk back to the pavilion.

Morris was unsure, hung his bat awkwardly and the ball took the top-edge. Couple of bounces and into the fence, the slip cordon could just watch that sail over their heads. Streaky stuff that!

Vilas patted the ball to mid-on and charged off. Bavuma was late to respond and was defeated by a lightning throw from Woakes. Bairstow leaped in the air to collect the ball and Jonty'd onto the stumps. Flying bail-flicking to put it bluntly. Bavuma run out (Woakes/Bairstow) 23(44) [4s-3]
