England did good all day and the South African batsmen were practically helpless on that track.


Fall of Wickets

18-1 (8.4 ovs) Elgar
23-2 (10.3 ovs) Kuhn
30-3 (12.6 ovs) Amla
47-4 (16.3 ovs) de Kock
47-5 (17.1 ovs) du Plessis
51-6 (23.3 ovs) Morris - Had a nightmare bowling and then completed the misery with his batting.
61-7 (26.1 ovs) Maharaj
114-8 (39.3 ovs) Rabada

From Agnew :-

Quote:
Toby Roland-Jones has had a dream day, a golden debut that will be talked about for years.

When cricketers, or anyone in sport, burst on to the scene like he did on the second day of England's third Test against South Africa at The Oval, it is remembered for a long time.

The Middlesex pace bowler took four wickets as the visitors folded to 126-8 in reply to England's 353 all out.

Circumstances conspired to help the 29-year-old. Conditions were ideal for pace bowling - cloud almost at ground level, the floodlights illuminating the gloom - and South Africa gave the latest poor showing in a series that has been an awful advert for Test batting.

But that is to take nothing away from Roland-Jones, who bowled very, very nicely on an occasion he will never forget.

Roland-Jones is a good, old-fashioned English seamer. He's not especially quick, but he pitches the ball up and swings it away, which is always dangerous.

He has a high action that follows a lovely, long, repeatable approach, which is very similar to that of his mentor, Angus Fraser. I think I'm right in saying Roland-Jones takes exactly the same number of steps in his run-up that Fraser did.

He is also very strong, with what Fred Trueman would call "a good fast-bowler's backside". Fred always approved of such things.

What we have learned is that Roland-Jones is a very promising prospect. Because of the way he bowls, he will not blow batsmen away, but is more likely to take wickets through accuracy and building pressure.

Having said that, he bowled some lovely deliveries at The Oval, with the one that removed Hashim Amla particularly brutal - bouncing and nipping away to brush the glove.


Throw in 25 runs off 35 balls and he had a stellar debut.


MCC members in seventh heaven.. a white player with a double barelled name takes 5 wickets. What could be better.. ;)


I worked with his brother Olly for a few years, both really nice blokes.

Stokes to bowl ...

1. Dot ball
2. Goes down leg, ugh.
3. Pushed away to point.
4. Maharaja beaten, not good enough to get a touch.
5. Bouncer. Ducked under.
6. Inside edge into the pad.

Maiden.

Moeen with the hat trick ball - Appeal for LBW - being reviewed.

With Philander and Morris out the Proteas bowling attack looked thinned out but surprised at the fight our young bowlers put up to restrict England to 260/6 end of day1
Maharaj came on as a leading world class spinner good econo rate
Duanne Oliver just over 20 and what an improvement! Got Joe Root's wicket.
Morkel and Radaba also some good bowling
still evenly poised

Bairstow has put the game a little more safe.

South Africa at the Close - 220 for 9 wickets - off 68.3 overs.

Anderson said it was "surreal" to bowl from "The Jimmy Anderson End", that made I smile.

He bowled 15 overs to take 4 wickets for 33 runs, Elgar was gone after facing 3 balls this time ...

2-1 (0.3 ovs) - Elgar - Jimmy
47-2 (11.3 ovs) - Amla
84-3 (27.3 ovs) - Kuhn
131-4 (40.4 ovs) - Bavuma - Jimmy
132-5 (40.6 ovs) - du Plessis - Jimmy
146-6 (48.3 ovs) - de Bruyn
167-7 (55.6 ovs) - Maharaj
189-8 (62.1 ovs) - de Kock
220-9 (68.3 ovs) - Rabada - Jimmy

South Africa trail by 142 runs at the moment.

Both sides can batter the opposition batsmen senseless and this has been a weird and wonderful series.

:wtf:
