London: Jul 23, 2012

 

England reached a score of 102 runs for the loss of four wickets, needing another 150 runs to avoid an innings defeat in the first Test against South Africa at Kennington Oval.

 

Earlier, a triple hundred by Hashim Amla and a well-designed century on day four by all-rounder Jacques Kallis has put South Africa in driver’s seat to eliminate England’s chances of winning the first Test.

 

Amla made 311 not out as South Africa made 637 for two declared; a first innings lead of 252. 

 

Later four strikes by South Africa‘s bowlers had England reeling on the fourth day of the first Test match at the Oval on Sunday.

 

All the four bowlers chipped with a wicket each on day four as the English top order gave in to hostile bowling by the visitors.

 

Skipper Andrew Strauss top scored with 27 runs before being caught by Vernon Philander at square-leg, attempting to sweep Imran Tahir, leading to a top edge.

 

Ian Bell holds the fort for England as he is unbeaten on 14 runs along with Ravi Bopara (15*) at the close of day four. 

 

Brief Scores: England 385 (Alastair Cook 115, Jonathan Trott 71; Morne Morkel 4 for 72) & 102 for 4 (Andrew Strauss 27, Ravi Bopara 15*, Ian Bell 14*; Vernon Philander 1 for 13) trail South Africa 637 for 2 decl (Hashim Amla 311*, Jacques Kallis 182*, Graeme Smith 131; James Anderson 1 for 116) by 150 runs
