Commentry
0 South Africa are breathing again. And so are their fans who were running short on points to defend the greatness of their team across formats. The return of Faf du Plessis has certainly injected some belief in the team. Sometimes a captain is all what a team needs. There's a bit of a break before the next one starts on the 27th of this month. And the pressure will clearly be on the new captain. Troubles of Test cricket is most felt by a new leader. How he copes from that will go a long way in defining his captaincy career for England. On that note, I, Abhishek Chaudhary, sign off along with Vineet Anantharaman, Akshay Maanay and Venkatesh.
0 Vernon Philander (Man of the Match): We were all disappointed after the Lord's Test match and needed to do something better here. Going into that Test I was a bit cold with the ankle injury that I sustained playing for Sussex. Over here, I got my groove back. Once you get the rhythm going, you need to make the most of it. Always (on asked if he enjoys bowling to the England left-handers). It (Morkel bowling well) gives me the freedom of going about my things. I think he is one of those bowlers known for keeping it tight. All the bowlers have been significant in this match. It was very tough on the first morning, a bold decision to bat first on this wicket. They got us those runs to defend in the end. An all round performance from the team today.
0 Faf du Plessis: I just thought we did our basics better. We put England under pressure for a longer period of time. It was important for us after Russell (coach) left us. It is always tough after something like that. We just focused on getting back to things we have done better in the past. There was intensity in the way we played. We let England dominate in the last game. In this Test it was important for us to get into a position of strength and keep that for long. We did brilliantly and never lost the momentum. Hashim's partnership with Kuhn was important in the first session. It did not matter how many runs they were scoring. It was about absorbing the pressure. The way Morkel bowled, that's the best I have seen him bowl in recent times. He did not take many wickets but maintained the pressure, and Maharaj as well. Ideally, as soon as the next Test comes, that would be better but at the same time it also gives some time for us to get away from games and relax and make sure we get back with same intensity (whether a nine-day gap is required).
0 Joe Root: Contrasting emotions in the last couple of weeks. I suppose it's all about how we respond from here. It is important that we stay tight. We don't have to dwell too much on this. There are areas we have to improve and take positives from here. It's difficult, South Africa reacted to conditions better than we did. We are going to learn from that. It is obviously disappointing, credit to them for playing the way they did. I don't think it is a concern, I am sure they will spend sometime there and get runs (on top three). It has been a tough week for him. He worked extremely hard throughout the game. Could not get wickets, hopefully he (Mark Wood) will be fit for selection. We have to sit down on selection and make sure we are happy with what we have going into the next Test. We are going to make sure that we improve and get better.
0 All said and done, it was those couple of hours on the second day when the English batting order lost the plot, a piece of their mind as well when they handed over a massive 130-run advantage - from a situation they had every right to stake a lead claim. Morris, one of the finds of this match, kept up with his limited-overs lines of alternating between short pitched stuff and the yorkers, and had took the only thorns in the English attack down. Also tells you what having the regular skipper does to you as a bowling unit. Wait on, here are some long sermons coming your way. Mike Atherton has the microphone..
0 An abject surrender for most of the bums on the seats who expected some sort of a revival. Despite all the extravaganza that has come into the world of Test cricket, the one major thing it has replaced is the art of digging it out for long hours in the middle. Forget long, today was hardly short. An innings, a defence rather that lasted only a session and a half. On an average, less than 20 minutes per wicket. Dismal. But take nothing away from the Proteas, getting hold of a side in disarray after the first game, without their strike bowler, without their star bat. And they successfully take the series to The Oval.
0 Handshakes all around. South Africa have come back hard in this one and are behind what happened in the course of last one month. A Test victory is an ointment that cures long-standing wounds. Played like a team today. It was always going to be tough for England but the way they fell apart is going to leave a new captain with many questions.
44.2 Olivier to Anderson, out Caught by de Kock!! That's it. Short ball going across Anderson and he obliges by putting some bat to that. Deflects to de Kock, who was jumping in joy even before it reached him. South Africa win by 340 runs. Anderson c de Kock b Olivier 0(1)
0 Olivier to Anderson, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
0 James Anderson, left handed bat, comes to the crease
44.1 Olivier to Mark Wood, out Caught by Chris Morris!! First wicket for Olivier in this match. When you go to a flea market, you got to get something for yourself. And Olivier has got that. This England batting has been as unorganized as a flee market. Short ball around off, rises quickly. Mark Wood wants to poke it away, deflects low towards gully. Mark Wood c Chris Morris b Olivier 0(1)
0 Olivier to Mark Wood, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
0 Duanne Olivier [3.0-0-25-0] is back into the attack
43.6 Maharaj to Liam Dawson, no run, keeps it tight on the stumps. Dawson blocks
0 Mark Wood, right handed bat, comes to the crease
43.5 Maharaj to Broad, out Caught by Morne Morkel!! That's it. Broad has had enough. Goes for an irresponsible slog sweep and connects it well but not well enough to clear Morkel at deep mid-wicket. Easily gobbles it up. Broad c Morne Morkel b Maharaj 5(12) [4s-1]
0 Maharaj to Broad, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
43.4 Maharaj to Broad, no run, Broad gets forward to defend, inside edges onto the pads. The ball dies down safely
43.3 Maharaj to Liam Dawson, 1 run, that's risky... and effective. Liam Dawson got his pad in front of the line of the ball and then swept behind square on the on-side
43.2 Maharaj to Broad, 1 run, fetches the lap-sweep from well outside off, sends down to fine leg
0 Broad withdraws midway. Maharaj has to reload
43.1 Maharaj to Liam Dawson, 1 run, floated outside off. Liam Dawson eases down to long-off
42.6 Philander to Broad, no run, yorker, right at the base of off. Broad manages to jam it out
42.5 Philander to Broad, stays leg-side and punches, once again to the right of that fielder at extra cover
42.4 Philander to Broad, FOUR, aerial but over Bavuma at backward point. Broad went for the uppish drive and got off the toe of the bat, was lucky to have evaded a leaping fielder there. Someone taller and Broad would have struggled to get that through
42.3 Philander to Broad, no run, shortish again. Broad is happy to stay back to such deliveries, punches to the right of extra cover
42.2 Philander to Broad, no run, punches off the back foot to point. Philander is not going to give any freebies
42.1 Philander to Broad, no run, nips back in on the stumps. Broad stays back and keeps out to cover
41.6 Maharaj to Liam Dawson, no run, slider outside off. Liam Dawson leaves
41.5 Maharaj to Liam Dawson, no run, thrown full. Liam Dawson dead-bats it
41.4 Maharaj to Liam Dawson, no run, turns from a shortish length. Liam Dawson defends off the back foot
