South Africa 309-6 against England at 1st day close

South Africa 309-6 against England at 1st day close

But his victims included South Africa's two best batsman - Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock - and he was chiefly responsible for reducing the tourists from 179-2 to 235-6.

But Vernon Philander made 54 in an unbroken partnership of 74 with Chris Morris to leave the visitors 309-6.

The Telegraph has teamed up with Brut for the Test series against South Africa to launch a contest between two of English cricket's biggest stars - captain Joe Root and leading bowler Jimmy Anderson.

Root led from the front at Lord's, with his first-innings 190 laying the foundations for a 211-run victory over South Africa.

Stat of the day300 - England's all-time record-breaking bowler James Anderson chalked another one off when he had Dean Elgar well-caught by Dawson at point, becoming the first Englishman to a triple-century of wickets in home Tests.

Things, though, began to change when Broad, on his home ground, struck with the first ball of the evening session, finding De Kock's outside edge and seeing the ball diverted into the hands of Alastair Cook at first slip.

England were adamant after the first Test that Moeen Ali was a second spinner behind Dawson and so Moeen, who took 10 wickets at Lord's, was not used until the 45th over, while his fellow slow bowler looked ineffective in seven overs for 26 runs.

Du Plessis [19] was the next to fall after a review showed that a Stokes delivery had clipped his glove and thigh pad before carrying behind to Jonny Bairstow, who held on to make a great catch of his own. The Lord's Test might be the only one they have lost since the loss in Adelaide in the day-night encounter against Australia, which was a dead rubber.

"As you get slightly older, you kind of appreciate everything a bit more because you know a bloke will always come and tap on your shoulder at some stage in the next few years".

"It was business as usual for me", said Cook, who scored a second-innings 69 at headquarters. "When they get the opportunity they'll still be pretty fresh coming into the second innings later on in this game".

"No matter what you do you've got to try and do it well". Since England and South Africa first met in March 1889 in Port Elizabeth their meetings - and non-meetings - have provided some of the most memorable episodes in cricket history.

Vernon Philander is South Africa's swing king in the absence of Dale Steyn and the Proteas trust him to settle on a troubling line. "We expect them to come back hard, to be right on it from the first ball".

"We saw some scooting low, we saw some carrying through so I don't think that's a fair reflection of how someone's bowling".
