South Africa: (yet to bat (Scorecard)

England posted their first century opening stand in more than three years only to lose four wickets for 107 Runs on a fluctuating first day of the fourth Test against South Africa in Johannesburg.

Zak Crawley’s maiden half-century, allied to 90 from Dom Sibley, took England to 192 – 0 just after tea on a day when the start was delayed by more than three hours because of rain at the wanderers.

In the face of some improved South Africa bowling, England wasted their platform as the top order found ways of getting themselves out.

Sibley gave Beuran Hendricks his first Test wicket, Crawley fell for 107, a skittish Joe Den ly was dismissed for 27 and Ben Stokes, who made only two, appeared to exchange angry words with someone off the field as he departed.

  • BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew: “It has been a really interesting day. South Africa came back into it and that is why Faf du Plessis wanted to stay out there.”

    Former England pace bowler Graham Onions on the Cricket Social: “It has been a mixed day for England. They will be walking off thinking ‘we have done OK’. Equally I think South Africa will think they have a chance. With Chris Woakes coming in at nine for England, they have plenty runs to come yet. “
