England meet South Africa at Old Trafford on Thursday as the hosts try to recover from defeat at Lord’s.
South Africa twice dismantled England’s batting lineup as they won the first Test of the three-match series by one innings and 11 runs.
A fierce bowling attack led by Kasigo Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Marco Jansen shone as England faltered to their first Test defeat under new managerial duo Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes.
Stokes was defiant after the game, insisting his team’s attacking tactics can still succeed and the pressure is on at Manchester now.
