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

WICKET! Quinton de Kock remains unbeaten but Morkel is trapped lbw as the Proteas are bowled out. South Africa 475 all out

HUNDRED! Quinton de Kock get his maiden Test hundred. South Africa 439/8.
...
...
A good session for South Africa despite the loss of Temba Bavuma early. They have gone past 400 and now with de Kock 15 shy of a hundred, the Proteas will want to close somewhere near 450.
...
...
400 up for the Proteas. de Kock is leading the charge.
...
...
...
WICKET! Abbott is gone. Stokes gets another. But wait, Proteas are reviewing it, but there is no change as the impact is umpire's call and it stays with the original decision. 386/8
...
Another SIX! This time de Kock joins in on the fun as he pulls Moeen for another six, which he follows with a wonderful cut for a boundary. 382/7.
...
SIX! Kyle Abbott launches Moeen Ali into the stands. South Africa 371/7
...
FIFTY! Quinton de Kock gets to his third Test fifty with a boundary. Can he make it a hundred?
...
South Africa are 356/7 after 100 overs. How much more would they want?
