England vs South Africa- Second Test Squads, Preview and Predictions

Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj took three wickets each as South Africa thrashed England by 340 runs to level the four Test series 1-1

James Anderson was the only England bowler to take a wicket - he managed five of the 15 which fell on a hectic second day - but it was England's batting which let them down as they were bowled out for 205 in little more than 50 overs.

England kept the same team after a convincing 211-run win inside four days in the opening test at Lord's, Root's first in charge since replacing Alastair Cook. "When they get the opportunity they'll still be pretty fresh coming into the second innings later on in this game".

England's record wicket-taker added the scalp of the opener Heino Kuhn to his haul in the evening and tried to remain upbeat despite his disappointment, adding: "We need a couple of people to stand up with the ball to make inroads and then we must bat out of our skin to chase whatever total we are set".

Ballance did initially flourish after making his debut in the final Test of the 2013-14 Ashes series in Sydney, going on to score three centuries the following northern summer.

Only two sides have scored 400 or more in first innings during the study period so it might be a risk to back either team for a dominant display with the bat first up.

When will Day 2 of England vs South Africa 2nd Test match be played?

"I know we can do it, it's just a case of dusting ourselves down tomorrow and doing it".

SA's Hashim Amla plays a straight drive on Day 1 of the 2nd Test v England yesterday.

Vaughan believes the current crop of England batsmen could learn lessons from the way South Africa have approached batting at Trent Bridge.

England have not won any of their past three series, taking victory in only four of 13 Tests along the way.

But it could have been different story as South Africa wasted two chances to dismiss Root cheaply before he went on to make 190 in the first innings to put the hosts in control.

It is no coincidence that South Africa's resurgence this match has come following the return of their captain, Faf du Plessis.

Morris, caught and bowled, and Morkel, edging behind, followed as South Africa were bowled out for what appeared a slightly under-par 335.

The wounds are mostly figurative, although Kagiso Rabada has absented himself from the second Test after a salty outburst at Lord's led to him accumulating a fourth demerit point. Trent Bridge usually aids swings and seam, which might actually be to South Africa's liking after a surprise trial by spin at Lord's.

Moeen Ali failed to reproduce his batting from Lord's and was caught in the covers for 18 off Morris, who trapped Stuart Broad lbw next ball. The captain asked a lot of his men and two of the top three answered as carefully as they could (Dean Elgar, unusually, the exception) but du Plessis needed more reassurance than that. It was a very worrying moment for England cricketers and fans as the physio came running in from the dressing and took charge of the situation.
