After doing most of the heavy lifting yesterday, South Africa must be mindful not to let their guard down on day four.
The goal today will be the same as yesterday and Faf du Plessis said as much at the press conference at the end of day three – bat for as long as possible.
South Africa are not out of the woods yet and still 276 runs behind England’s first innings total of 629. There is still a lot of cricket to be played in this match and a few quick wickets in a session can change the whole complexity of the game.
The Proteas are still in a strong position after losing only one wicket on Monday and they have two settled batsmen in Hashim Amla (157) and Faf du Plessis (51) at the crease.
