Ben Stokes delivers a fiery spell to expedite English victory

Rassie van der Dussen and Keegan Petersen got involved in a stubborn stand to deny England a wicket in the second session. The ever-fiery Ben Stokes, however, struck immediately after Tea and post that partnership, it was always going to be a matter of time. Once the new ball arrived, James Anderson and Ollie Robinson blew the tail away with some high-class swing bowling, something that was witnessed in the opening session of the game. A lot of questions will be raised over Dean Elgar's decision to bat under grey skies and in all honesty, South Africa's bowling plans too proved erratic at times.
