How much can Bavuma and de Kock add? Will England get the quick wickets they need? Can the Proteas cross 400? All these questions will be answered on day two, so do join us again for that. Until then, stay safe and have fun.
...
The day ends as it began, with both teams evenly poised. South Africa looked set for a lot more when Cook and Amla were batting but England brought it back well, before the Proteas closed the day off without any further loss to keep the match evenly poised heading into day two.

...
Bavuma calmly sees off the last ball and South Africa end day one on 329/5, having scored at least 100 runs in each session. Cook and Amla both got centuries, but their dismissal in quick succession almost triggered a collapse but de Kock and Bavuma saw them home.
...
Proteas closing the day strongly as Temba Bavuma and Quinton de Kock are playing each ball on its merit.
...
With 8 overs left in the day, South Africa are only 10 runs short of 300. The way Amla and Cook were batting, they looked well on course of a total in excess of 400. But they need to revise their targets now with the last recognised batting pair currently at the crease.
...
England take the new ball immediately and James Anderson bowls the first over. No surprises there.
...
WICKET! JP Duminy is out. Trying to pull Moeen Ali, Duminy completely misses the ball, which kept a little low and is trapped lbw. South Africa 273/5

HUNDRED! Stephen Cook makes history as he becomes the 100th player to get a Test 100 on debut.
...
...
WICKET! Broad to AB, nicked to slip. The pattern resumes. 10th time in 14 Tests that Broad has got rid of AB. South Africa now in a spot of bother having lost two quick wickets.
...
And just when England thought they were getting somewhere, AB walks in. Time for Stuart Broad?
...
...
WICKET! England finally get the breakthrough they were looking for and it is provided by Ben Stokes. Amla inside-edges one onto his stumps. South Africa 237/2
...
...
...
Amla and Cook bring up the 200-run partnership for the second wicket.
...
...
...
Amla edges one after tea, but it falls short of Cook (not his batting partner) at slip.
...
...
In the post-lunch session, 117 runs were scored by South Africa in 29 overs without the loss of any wickets. South Africa 224/1 at Tea.

Centurion continues to be Amla's favourite hunting ground. His 5th hundred at the venue in 10 Tests.
...
...
HUNDRED FOR AMLA! Hash gets to his 25th Test century with a double down the ground. South Africa 221/1.
...
Amla stuck on the nervous nineties but South Africa are still progressing seamlessly. 213/1
...
...
...
...
200 comes up South Africa!
...
FOUR! Amla into the nineties with a brilliant boundary through the covers!
...
150 partnership between Amla and Cook completed. This partnership has taken the game away from England.
...
DRINKS: SA are 181/1 at drinks in the second session. Amla 73*, Cook 77*.
...
...
...
South Africa making serene progress at a good pace as well. 162/1 after 40 overs at an run-rate of over 4, with Amla looking in ominous form.
