England suffer triple strike

January 6, 2016
Alastair Cook

South Africa took three wickets in the first hour of play to leave England on 58-3.

Alastair Cook, Alex Hales and Joe Root are already back in the dressing room as South Africa continue to turn this Test on it’s head.

Cook was caught behind off Kagiso Rabada before Chris Morris took another stunning one-handed catch, his second of the match, to get rid of Hales to give Morne Morkel his first wicket.

Joe Root survived being caught behind after Morkel overstepped, but he got cleaned bowled by a ripper from Morris with his first delivery of the day.

Hashim Amla declared on 627-7 half an hour before stumps on day four, but they couldn’t manage a breakthrough. With England being 1-0 up in the series, it will be interesting to see how Alastair Cook approaches the match situation.
