CLOSE OF PLAY ON DAY 1

SA 329/5 after 90 overs. 

The  day will be remembered for Stephen Cook's debut century as well as Amla's stylish ton.

England fought back well but De Kock and Bavuma have put SA in front with a 50 run partnership.

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Bavuma drives Stokes through the covers for four!

22 Jan 2016

Stokes will get the final over of the day.

Can he get a late breakthrough?

22 Jan 2016

Ali joins the attack again. Two overs left in the day. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

A classic cover drive from Bavuma sends an overpitched Broad delivery through the whistling through the covers. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Bavuma in on the act as he drives Broad down the ground!

Good counter-attacking play on display. 

22 Jan 2016

This partnership has moved along to 40. 

That over of 14 runs has helped. 

De Kock has moved to 25 off 30. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Too short from Anderson and De Kock is pulling over mid-wicket. Didn't get all of it but enough to reach the boundary.

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

This time De Kock drives throught the off-side off the back foot.

Anderson is even more grumpy now. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

De Kock drives straight down the ground! Beautiful!

Really tought going at the moment however. 

22 Jan 2016

BEATEN!

Anderson goes past the edge of Bavuma's bat!

Excellent delivery. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

De Kock willing to play his shots as Broad drops in short and the Proteas keeper pulls well in front of square. 

22 Jan 2016

Tough conditions at present for the batsman. 

Some swing around. 

22 Jan 2016

Broad will steam in with the new ball from the other end. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Boom! Bavuma punches nicely off the back foot for a boundary through extra-cover!

22 Jan 2016

Here comes the new ball...

England have taken it straight away. 

Jimmy Anderson gets to use it first up. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Short and wide from Woakes and Bavuma is on that in a flash, cutting past point for a boundary. 

22 Jan 2016

This has been an excellent fightback by England since tea. 

22 Jan 2016

Quinton de Kock is the new man in...


22 Jan 2016

WICKET! 

Dissapointment for JP Duminy as he falls to the off-spinner again. Poor shot selection as he tries to pull a fullish delivery to be caught LBW.

JP Duminy lbw b Ali 16 (31b 4x4 0x6) SR: 51.61

22 Jan 2016

The Proteas losing their way a little here and the new ball is due in 5 overs.

Temba Bavuma is the new man in. 

22 Jan 2016

WICKET!

Cook's great innings has come to an end as he chops on off the bowling of Woakes.

SC Cook b Woakes 115 (218b 14x4 0x6) SR: 52.75

SA 271/4 after 74.5

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Loose from England. 

Ali drags one day and Duminy dispatches him over mid-wicket. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Anderson has his radar wrong here. That's on Duminy's pads and the Proteas batsman flicks it fine for a boundary. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Streaky from Cook as he edges past gully and down to third man.

Anderson looks grumpy. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Wow!

Big full toss... almost a beamer! Duminy is all over that as he smashes it to mid-wicket for a boundary. 

22 Jan 2016

Ali is back into the attack. England will attack Duminy here as he struggles against off-spinners. 

22 Jan 2016

SCORE UPDATE

SA 251/3 after 70 overs.

Still 20 overs left in the day. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

After a very slow period, Duminy drives beautifully through the covers off Stokes. He is off the mark. 

22 Jan 2016

FOUR!

Cook pulls through midwicket. Top shot!

22 Jan 2016

DEBUT TON FOR STEPHEN COOK!

What a story!

Denied for so long and now that he is in the team he has a century!

Well deserved!

Cook's ton has come off 187 balls and with 12 boundaries. 

22 Jan 2016

THIRD UMPIRE CALLED INTO ACTION

Stokes has appealed for an LBW against Cook. Not given but England refer. 

Umpires call and Cook survives!

22 Jan 2016

JP Duminy is the new man in for the Proteas. 

22 Jan 2016

WICKET!

Broad strikes to remove De Villiers for a duck!

AB de Villiers c Root b Broad 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

SA 238/3

22 Jan 2016

Cook looking a little nervous...

22 Jan 2016

APPEAL!

Broad and Bairstow go up after Cook plays and misses. Not given and not referred either. 

22 Jan 2016

WICKET!

A breakthrough for England finally and it's that man Ben Stokes.

Amla manages an inside edge onto his own stumps.

What an innings from the former Proteas captain though. 

HM Amla b Stokes 109 (169b 19x4 0x6) SR: 64.49

SA 237/2

22 Jan 2016
