Philander sent for x-ray on right hand

Philander sent for x-ray on right hand

The attack made a fine start in restricting the hosts to 82/4 at lunch, but lost their way with the poor execution of the basics - which included nine no-balls - and the costly wicket of England captain Joe Root, who is unbeaten on 184.

Two key anchors in Amla and Elgar got in before perishing at the hands of Moeen Ali, who showed great control and ability to provide a much-needed respite for the England seamers after Liam Dawson proved largely ineffective.

Moeen became the seventh England all-rounder to achieve the 2,000 runs/100 wickets double and the second-quickest in 38 Tests, just one more than Tony Greig and four fewer than Ian Botham.

Rabada took out Mark Wood two balls later, but Broad refused to go down without a fight and managed to lead England to 458 before they were bowled out when James Anderson was caught behind off the bowling of Morkel for 12.

Day 3 of England vs South Africa 1st Test match will be played on July 8. Elgar followed his England counterpart in leading the way with the bat but Broad and Moeen winkled out a wicket apiece during the middle session.

South Africa would have hoped the end of the innings was in sight‚ but England would add another 91 runs. The 47-run stand for the final wicket finally ended when Anderson edged a Morkel delivery behind the stumps. Broad was able to predict Morne Morkel's intentions all too easily which meant that he smashed two consecutive bouncers over the boundary at square leg.

South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada will serve a one-match ban in next week's second Test at Trent Bridge after admitting swearing on day one at Lord's.

South Africa captain Dean Elgar bats during day two of the first test against England at Lord's, before being dismissed for 54.

But wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock twice struck Broad for three fours in as many balls - the best a whipped drive through mid-on from a ball pitching outside off stump.

South Africa missed another trick when Vernon Philander's wish to review an lbw appeal against Broad fell on deaf ears yet would have been successful, with England's No 9 on just four out of 372-7.

"He's a phenomenal talent", said Philander of Rabada, whose 17 Tests have already yielded 71 wickets. I've probably bowled a bit safe the a year ago or so, and today's the first day I went back to an attacking mindset.

When Broad got a ball to jag back off the seam and trap JP Duminy leg before for 15, the South Africans were really up against it, only for Bavuma and De Bruyn to briefly steady the innings.
