SA vs ENG: Sarel Erwee took South Africa close to first-innings lead against England

  • Sarel Erwee’s unbeaten 60 helped South Africa reach 158-2 at tea on the second day.
  • They were seven runs behind England’s first innings score of 165.
  • Kagiso Rabada, a fast bowler for South Africa, took five wickets in England’s innings.

SA vs ENG: In the first Test between South Africa and England at Lord’s on Thursday, Sarel Erwee helped South Africa get close to taking the lead in the first innings.

Erwee’s unbeaten 60 helped the Proteas get to 158-2 at tea on the second day, which was just seven runs behind England’s score of 165.

Aiden Markram was in good form. Three beautiful fours from Matthew Potts, James Anderson, and spinner Jack Leach helped him get to 16 not out.

Kagiso Rabada, a fast bowler for South Africa, did most of the damage to England’s innings. He took five wickets in England’s innings, making it the 12th time he has done so in a Test innings.

The only specialist England batsman to make a score in the double digits was Ollie Pope, who made 73. The next best score came from captain and all-rounder Ben Stokes, who made 20.

Dean Elgar, the captain of South Africa, and Erwee, another opener, both scored quickly without taking too many risks. This was against an England attack that lacked the speed and accuracy of South Africa’s four quicks.

Elgar was out on seven, though, when he edged Potts and Zak Crawley dropped a head-high slip catch.

Elgar hit anything loose and was mostly unbothered from then on until he was out for 47 when a ball from Anderson, who was 40 at the time, bounced off his thigh guard and forearm before rolling onto the stumps. South Africa was ahead 85-1 when he left.

Keegan Petersen, who was batting for the first time, got off to a good start by whipping Anderson to the leg side for a well-hit boundary.

Erwee, who is 32 and has only played in a few Tests, got to his second fifty when he hit Stuart Broad through the covers for his sixth four in 89 balls.

But soon after, he almost got himself out when he tried to hit a quick single down the leg side. He was well short of his ground, but Broad missed with a shy at the non-stumps. striker’s

England did get their second wicket when Petersen (24) edged the ball to third slip, where Jonny Bairstow caught it.

When England came back to bat on Thursday, they were 116-6, with Pope still not out and Broad still not out, but they were out before lunch.

Rabada finished off the tail after taking out openers Alex Lees and Crawley on Wednesday’s first day, which was cut short by rain.

England has won all four of its Tests since Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes took over as captain and coach, respectively. This is because they switched to an all-out attack mode.

But the strategy didn’t work against South Africa’s strong offence, which helped them move to the top of the World Test Championship table.

Pope should have been out for 67 when he edged Rabada straight to first slip, but Erwee missed a simple chance to catch the ball after four tries.

Then, Rabada got the wicket he deserved when Pope hit a full-length ball for 73 runs. This ended England’s 102-ball innings, leaving them with 134 runs and seven wickets.

And he showed that his game was more than just speed when he got rid of Broad (15) with a smart slower ball that Broad lobbed to Elgar at point.

Rabada ended the innings when he had Anderson lbw for a duck to get his name on the coveted honours board at Lord’s.
