England in survival scrap after South Africa set mammoth chase

England in survival scrap after South Africa set mammoth chase

South Africa took control of the second test against England and saw a way back into the series after a tumultuous second day on Saturday when 15 wickets fell and the Proteas emerged with a 205-run lead and nine wickets in hand.

Most of the rest aim to play shots whenever possible and England batting coach Mark Ramprakash admitted it is hard to find watchful players in these days of crash, bang, wallop white ball cricket.

"Our seamers, it might be that they play a bigger part this week, but that quite excites me".

Chris Morris and Vernon Philander were rarely troubled until they went on the attack to set up the declaration. "There is no thought or feeling of seeing off a bowler or wearing a team down", he added.

Lemar to Arsenal is a done deal (or maybe not!)
The 21-year-old was outstanding last season as Monaco won the Ligue 1 title and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. The Daily Star claims the French worldwide is afraid Monaco might actually block his path to the Premier League.

Vaughan said England's batsmen need to trust their own techniques and should attempt to occupy the crease for longer periods if the ball was swinging around.

That sparked a severe collapse for England who lost seven wickets for just 62 runs, including dismissals in consecutive balls to Morris. It's always when the ball does a little bit.

When will Day 2 of England vs South Africa 2nd Test match be played? Look at the way South Africa played. "A lot of England's players look like they are premeditating their shots", he explained.

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. Though the sun may have been out a fraction more than on the previous day, and the ball that England kept trying - and failing - to get changed did not move as much, a rock-solid defence was still a handy way to drive bowlers to distraction.

She has not revealed the reasons behind the cancelled wedding but the couple had been planning their nuptials for two years. She cheerfully greeted and welcomed her guests when they arrived to attend the Saturday party.

Looking ahead to England's defence of the Ashes in Australia later this year, Vaughan said the team needed to include an extra specialist batsman at the expense of one of their all-rounders.

As far as Test captaincy debuts go, it's fair to say Joe Root got off to a flyer.

But ask any of the South African supporters who have given Trent Bridge a light smattering of green over the past three days, and spent their evenings knocking the froth off some ales in the beer garden of Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem under Nottingham Castle, and they will not hesitate in reminding you this number is in fact five. Yet the likes of Moeen Ali and Liam Dawson will be disappointed at the ease they were dismissed in such a challenging position after inexplicably swinging the bat at average deliveries.

You have to adapt your game and adapt to situations, anything else isn't good enough.

Yasmani Grandal also added three RBIs by way of a three run home run after Bellinger went yard earlier in the inning. Turner's sacrifice fly in the third inning allowed Logan Forsythe to tag up and score the Dodgers' second run.

But they were two rare highlights on a grim day for Root's men, leaving the new skipper facing his first real test in the job as he bids to turn the tide in the second of four matches between the sides.
