Despite some valiant resistance, England are still a long away as the day belonged to South Africa and Quinton de Kock, who scored his maiden Test hundred.
...
Cook sees England home to stumps on day two at 138/2. The England captain is unbeaten on 67 and is joined by Joe Root. England are still 337 runs behind though and are still not out of the woods.
...
And Cook breaks the shackles with a boundary off Morkel. Just one more over left in the day.
...
South African pacers turning on the squeeze and Rabada and Abbott rack up the maidens. But can they get the breakthrough they crave?
...
Crucial final 15 minutes for England to navigate here. If they escape unscathed, they can look possibly overhauling South Africa's total on day three. England 129/2
...
Hales must be wondering if he will get another chance after disappointing in the series. His average of 19.28 is the fourth worst average of an England opener in a series since 2000.
...
...
Spinners extracting turn, pacers extracting uneven bounce. This game isn't over just yet. England 113/2
...
...
50 for COOK! His 47th Test fifty but his first in the series. England also notch their century. England 100/2

WICKET! Just as I say that, Compton is trapped lbw and Rabada has another. England 78/2
...
Cook and Compton grinding South African bowlers down but the hosts shouldn't let their guard down as they are only a couple of wickets away from getting back into the game. England 78/1
