England were bundled out for 165 in the first innings as Kagiso Rabada took five wickets, and then Africa reached 289/7 at the stumps with Marco Jensen and Rabada at the south crease. England captain Ben Stokes, however, gave his all on the second day, and he bowled a pace with a barrage of bouncers, and it helped him come back with three wickets.

However, he bowled the smartest delivery to South African opener Sarel Irvi in ​​the 55th over and the left-hander had no answer to deal with and was sent back to the pavilion as a result.

Stokes came back with three wickets on the second day as he dismissed Rassi van der Dussen, Ervi and Keshav Maharaj.
