South Africa in control of second test after England batting collapse

Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj took three wickets each as South Africa thrashed England by 340 runs to level the four Test series 1-1 WATCH: Vernon Philander vs Chris Morris! South African quickies produce best dismissals of 2nd Test

"Broady, Jimmy, Woody and Stokesy only bowling a handful of overs in the second innings last week means they're nice and fresh - and when they get the opportunity this week I hope they're still fresh".

South Africa seized a precious 205-run lead over England as 15 wickets fell on day two of the second Test, at gloomy Trent Bridge.

Dean Elgar is a solid cricketer who will benefit from handing back the reins, but Hashim Amla's form is starting to become a concern. And it really would take a comeback of epic proportions from England to throw this contest wide open again.

One-nil down in the Investec Series, the tourists must revive their fortunes at a ground where England have not been defeated in Test cricket since 2007, winning six of the seven played there since India achieved victory in July that year.

And Du Plessis was disappointed with the way South Africa responded to challenges in the first Test, pointing to England's recovery from 76-4 to 458 in the first innings as a particular source of irritation. That could well be the difference between the two sides at the end of the series and it is an issue South Africa need to address but they don't need to labour the point with de Kock just yet.

New captain Joe Root is determined to ensure England maintain higher standards for longer.

"I had a little celebration (after the first Test win) nothing too big".

Sadly, only Jonny Bairstow, who scrambled 45 runs, proved any kind of ally. But here, with de Kock at the other end, Amla was pleasantly more urgent. The 33-year-old missed the defeat at Lord's for family reasons but marshalled his bowlers impeccably here, with Chris Morris, who helped snuff out the England tail with three wickets, explaining the impact.

However, England's response got off to a woeful start, as Alastair Cook (3) and Keaton Jennings (0) produced the lowest combined total by an English opening pairing since 2005.

Cook's place is not in question given he is England's all-time record runscorer. "As South Africans, we've got to accept that South Africa are going to be middle of the road in their future Test cricket".

"They look like they are playing a Twenty20 game".

The second day of the ongoing Test match between England and South Africa was an interesting one as England's ace fast bowler James Anderson bowled extremely well and showed his class.

Anderson then proceeded to bamboozle Maharaj with a mix of outswingers and inswingers.

Not even South Africa.

The good Saturday crowd in Nottingham was stunned into silence as England quickly slipped to 3 for 2 with Philander and Morkel wreaking early damage.
