2nd Test, Day 2 in Trent Bridge

WATCH: Vernon Philander vs Chris Morris! South African quickies produce best dismissals of 2nd Test

Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj took three wickets each as South Africa thrashed England by 340 runs to level the four Test series 1-1

Not only did Elgar survive on 55 - but as the ball was diverted to Stokes at cover, Amla could have gone had the fielder chosen and hit the target at the non-striker's end as the batsmen dithered and then aborted an attempted single. Let's make sure we take this game into the last day and not fold like we did in the first innings. "He's got plenty in the tank for when we start tomorrow". "We are pretty chuffed".

England lost seven wickets for 62 runs as they slumped to 205 all out on Saturday's second day in reply to South Africa's first innings 335.

But they, in turn, skittled out England for 205, with left-arm spinner Maharaj taking three for 21 in 10 overs and recalled all-rounder Morris three for 38 in 8.5 overs.

Success at Trent Bridge would give them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series over a South Africa side they have not beaten in a home series since 1998. It was not a great day for us.

Not in the mood to go through the sports news in detail, but can't quite get yourself to do away with it either?

South Africa will arrive at Trent Bridge on Friday hoping their team can beat England in the second Test to level the four-match series at 1-1.

Joe Root and his team spent almost all day in the field on Sunday as South Africa relentlessly built their lead.

Certainly, Root has been learning the harsh realities of captaincy in this match after the victorious breeze at Lord's last week.

The veteran England quick needed just 20 deliveries to collect those four wickets, finishing with 5-72 and his 22nd five-wicket haul in test cricket.

But it was the loss of Root sent England once again into a downward spiral and, although Jonny Bairstow stuck around to reach 45, Ben Stokes (0), Moeen Ali (18) and Stuart Broad (0) - all of whom played starring roles in the first innings at Lord's - failed to fire.

Next ball, Cook's fellow left-handed opener Keaton Jennings fell for a duck.

At lunch, Root and Ballance, desperate to nail down his Test place after being recalled at Lord's, had taken England to 85 for two.

Anderson sent Vernon Philander back in the first over of play without adding to his overnight score of 54.

The towering Morkel then had Root edging a drive and de Kock, diving in front of first slip, held an excellent catch.

Root added another milestone to his impressive career, making the fastest 50 from an England captain in just 40 balls.

Cook sent the decision upstairs - and was mightily relieved to watch on the giant screen as the ball was predicted to miss the stumps by millimetres.

The afternoon session followed a similar pattern with Amla easing his way to his 34th Test fifty and Du Plessis providing more than able support.
