England captain Ben Stokes strikes in the first over after Tea to pick up the key wicket of Rassie van der Dussen. It is a full delivery outside off and the batter chases it, ending up nicking through to the 'keeper to depart for 41. It's the end of a 87-run partnership, and South Africa are 141/4. The scoreline soon becomes 151/5 as Petersen falls to Stokes as well.

The rock-solid partnership between Petersen and van der Dussen kept England at bay. Only 53 runs were scored in the 29 overs bowled in the second session as South Africa went into Tea at 141/3, still 123 runs behind. They faced more than 200 deliveries between them and frustrated the England bowlers.
