Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes starred; England announced in 415/9

SA vs ENG 2nd Test Day2: Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes shine. While wicket-keeper Ben Foakes struck an undefeated 113, English captain Ben Stokes 103 was also impressive. Both became England’s top scorer in the second innings of….. Stokes and Foakes’ 173-time partnership, and some headline licks from England’s tail holders helped provide 246, putting visitors under tremendous pressure.

Ben Fox and Ben Stokes shine after their centuries

While at the Proteas, it was Anrich Nortje’s disciplined bowling that helped him knock out Jonny Bairstow and Zak Crawley in the first session. Kajisu Rabada gets rid of the dangerous-looking Ben Stokes. Furthermore, Keshav Maharaj and Simon Harmer chose three for themselves. The lack of discipline at the end of these innings can be seen by South African bowlers. Because they couldn’t use the wicket fall and let the tail mates get away with some running.

SA vs ENG Day2: Ben Stokes’ interesting decision

As the third inning progressed, South African captains Dean Alger and Sarel Eroy came to face the English bowlers. James Anderson starts with the new ball. While Anderson played with the new ball as usual. However, Captain Stokes decided to bring his spinner, Jack Leach, as fifth on himself. Hoping to see Leach get the same amount of purchase as Keshav Maharaj and Simon Harmer for Proteas.

England seems to be in great control so far. They will hope to make a comeback after a petty defeat in the first test. If a Stokes player manages to get a few early wickets, it will be a tough shot for the visitors. On the other hand, Dean Alger hopes to play the captain’s strike and provide his team with the foundation.

While the hosts will enter the field with all their guns blazing. Visitors hope to land a mooring role from their editorial as they begin their third day at 23 for nothing.
