      Game over.

      Bat too fast, bat too slow what ever we try it hasn't worked.

      Block block slog not going to cut it, we need to learn the art of rotating the strike.

      Jimmy strikes. Plum LBW. 2-1...got to bowl them out under bout 160 or so...could be a cliffhanger this one.

      Nasser having a pop at Root over no third slip. He's right England have to take wickets, not as if they are protecting a lead.

      ..but Jimmy has 3 and a gully...

      25-2. Could be a game on here. SA don't currently have a world class batsman. Pressure on Root juggle the attack, get his field right but in with a window of op. Archer into the attack...4 off his first.....3 down..great catch by Butler...off Archer..29-3

      Archer should try a yorker every now and again. SA trying to get at England...could get away fronm England quickly..that's what a poor first innings score gets you. Next hour or so so could easily decide this game...Curran on....4 down..great away swing by Curran..not out...didn't carry..

      Tall order what with Englands brittle batting but we never know, knocked 100 odd off for one down.

      121-1 at the close. Still a long way off..255 more needed. If England win it will be Englands highest ever run chase.Can't see it as the pitch is taking a bit of spin. Get off to a good start tomorrow.. say 170 before next loss it could get interesting.

      232-6...not over till the fat lady sings...but she's gargling in the wings and will be out there before to long for sure.

      Crap first innings has cost England.

      Oh well. Lie in tomorrow. First innings cost us. Hindsight is a wonderful thing but perhaps batting first would have been better

      Another Test which sees all too familiar England batting collapses. There seems to be no answer to this ongoing problem !

      England just need to bat the rest of the day here. 2 more sessions and 160 runs with a few wickets left in the morning for quick runs should set the game up.

      For now though it's time to dig in, put the bad ball away and rotate strike.

      England actually on top in this game. 243 the lead..Sibley on 82. Need a big win to get some respect back at least.

      Looking like 1-1..

      Need wickets England. Nothing happening heading into the final part of day 4. SA 1 wicket down and the wicket is very slow.

      Oh for a quality spinner...

      Still a privilege to watch him, I savour every spell these days knowing theres not much left in the tank.

      Still think it's worth one last shot for him to get back to fitness. No rushing back, miss the rest of this series and then have another go when he is ready.

      Top class bowler, and he will be a long time retired. Worth another crack IMO.

      Great Partnership between Ben Stokes & Ollie Pope, with Stokes hitting another century for England.
