South Africa's admirable comeback, that began in the final session on Day 3, continued into the fourth morning at The Oval as Marco Jansen completed his maiden five-wicket haul while Kagiso Rabada walked away with four wickets to bowl England out for 158. A solid 58-run opening stand powered South Africa's reply in the second innings as the visitors went into Lunch on Sunday at 70/1, leading by 30. The South African openers made a good fist of thing, especially skipper Dean Elgar who dealt in boundaries, as South Africa needed only nine overs to wipe out the deficit.
