England bowlers has been up to the mark, to be more specific Stuart Broad. Going into stumps on Day 2 South Africa are 137 for 4 trailing England by 166 runs with six wickets in hand. Broad has looked apart from all of the other bowler’s on display. Coming into the final session AB de Villiers and Dean Elgar would have been in confidence playing Broad and Co with considerable ease. Elgar having batted through the day would be satisfied with his knock of 67 not out. De Villiers who absorbed everything the English bowler had to offer, got out at the cusp of a half century. Prior to his dismissal Broad kept in teasing him around the off-stump line and as a reward picked him up in the fourth ball of the 32nd over. Dean Elgar has looked fairly decent after a poor tour of India. Both De Villiers and  Elgar had more aggressive against Moeen Ali, hitting him for sixes.

Moeen Ali did have his lucky moment, when he picked up the wicket of Faf Du Plessis. Du Plessis, who is having bad run with the bat of late, had his luck turn worst as the ball just whisked the bails on the way to the keeper. Temba Bavuma in his short stay has looked at ease cutting and pulling the ball. Elgar has been the star player for South Africa. Broad in the post-lunch session wrecked havoc on the South African batsman picking Van Zyk in his second ball and captain Hashim Amla who had his chances earlier.
