South Africa lose three on moving day in Manchester

South Africa’s woes in the second Test continued as they lost three wickets on the third morning of the Manchester Test on Saturday. James Anderson, Ollie Robinson and Stuart Broad picked up a wicket each to leave the visitors tottering at 88/3, still 176 adrift from making England bat again. The fourth wicket pair put on a useful 34-run stand off 81 deliveries to stabilize the innings. But South Africa still have a lot of yards to cover to prevent England from closing in on a series-levelling win.

Brief scores: South Africa 151 & 88/3 (Sarel Erwee 25, Keegan Petersen 20; James Anderson 1-15, Stuart Broad 1-16) trail England 415/9 decl. by 176 runs.
