Stuart Broad made a remarkable catch on the third morning at Lord’s


England had lost every session of that Test game convincingly up to tea on the second day and were snaking into a huge first innings deficit as the unlikely duo of Ben Stokes and Jack Leach – where have we heard that before? – summoned a spell of violent impact and real spin to disrupt South Africa’s momentum.

The tourists still held a commanding 124-run lead after stumbling at 289-7, bolstered by a late flurry of runs from bowlers Keshav Maharaj and Marco Jansen after toppling their hosts for just 165 earlier in the day led by Kagiso Rabadas five. wicket haul.

But as the sun went down behind the main stand, the home fans would have left a buzzing Lord’s with a small cheer after watching their captain lead the kind of comeback that has become a familiar part of England’s weird and wonderful summer, and you will see it building on that on the third day.

Follow the latest result and over-by-over updates from the first test below.


South Africa 293-8 – Jansen 44, Nortje 1; England 165

81st over: Yep, new ball taken by England. Can you polish these last gates? Jimmy Anderson appears to be warming up in the field but Ben Stokes continues from the Pavilion End for now.

Second ball single by Jansen before more short stuff at Nortje. He jabs a club at one that slithers over the slip chain and they run.


South Africa 291-8 – Jansen 43, Nortje 0; England 165

80th over: Matty Potts goes on, conceding just a single against Jansen, who got pushed through midway. The plan is clearly to roll to Nortje – a brave plan as he will soon have the ball in his hands and has some serious pace – but he easily survives.

Looks like the new ball is being taken now.


WATCH: Stuart Broad’s remarkable catch

Here’s this surreal catch from Stuart Broad. Veteran’s incredible athleticism. Everyone thought the ball went over him to the limit, but a big paw grabs him.


South Africa 290-8 – Jansen 42, Nortje 0; England 165

79. over: Ben Stokes bowling from the other end. A Durham double in attack for England. Jansen wins the first heat of the morning with a slap to the leg for a single before Nortje is treated to a short bowling. However, he avoids all damage.


South Africa 289-8 – Jansen 41, Nortje 0; England 165

78th over: Wow. What a start to the morning for England. Exactly what they needed. The rest of the flyovers are of little note as Anrich Nortje is the man in No. 10.


wicket! Rabada c Broad, b Potts 3 – South Africa 289-8

IMPRESSIVE! What a start for England! A couple of bouncers from Potts which Rabada staggers out of the way before pulling another short and Stuart Broad making a PHENOMENAL catch!

Jump like a salmon in the air, raise a hand and stick! Incredible grip. Wow!


England vs South Africa

Right, let’s go. Matty Potts steams to the first over with Kagiso Rabada on strike


Play to get started

OK, players are on their way out right now, so we’ll get started shortly. As a reminder, South Africa finished day two 289-7 – 124 runs ahead of England.

Marco Jansen (41 missing) and Kagiso Rabada (3 missing) are on the bend. Jansen formed a very entertaining partnership of 72 with Keshav Maharaj before Ben repelled Stokes of the latter and he showed he knows how to swing a racquet.


Forecast adjusted fairly

Some good news from the weather front at Lord’s. It is currently dry with no rain forecast today – the first day’s wet weather is increasingly feeling like a distant memory.

There is ample cloud cover which should help England’s swing bowlers although they are keen to hit themselves as quickly as possible which could prove to be a double edged sword…


Jack Leach promises England will hold on and fight back

According to spinner Jack Leach, England will certainly not go out of business in this game.

“We’re behind in the game but we held on really well,” Leach told Sky Sports at the end of day two. “We always try to take wickets, that’s our way of thinking. We could have had a few more, but we just have to keep at it.

“I felt like we were creating half-chances and we have to believe that we can take them. That’s how it works, we only think about how we can influence the game in front of us and not about the scoreboard.”

Leach bowled superbly in the evening session and while he deservedly took the wicket from Aiden Markram he could easily have had a few more.

“I felt like I had nothing to lose and could just go for it, spin the ball hard and see what’s beneath the surface,” he added.

“I feel this confidence in myself now. I’m confident I’ve played enough Test cricket. This trust comes from performance.

“When I get into a rhythm, I feel like I have more control and energy. It’s about not rushing things. If you feel excited and nervous, you can speed up your run-up.”
