South Africa reinforced their grip on the Lord’s Test match by bagging yet another session on Day 3. Having added 37 runs to their overnight total, the visitors secured a handy lead of 161 before Keshav Maharaj struck twice with straight deliveries in the moments leading to Lunch.
Anrich Nortje (28*) scoredthe bulk of the runs for South Africa this morning, taking advantage of the short-ball tactic by England – something that’s proved to be a double-edged sword of late for the hosts. Marco Jansen fell a couple short of his maiden fifty but once again played an able hand as Nortje wielded his willow at the other end to get his side up to 326.
South Africa all out.
The lead is 1⃣6⃣1⃣
