S. A. skip­per back for Test

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

SOUTH Africa will hope the re­turn of cap­tain Faf du Plessis leads to a re­vival in their for­tunes in the sec­ond Test against Eng­land at Not­ting­ham’s Trent Bridge start­ing tonight.

The se­nior bats­man missed the se­ries opener fol­low­ing the birth of his first child but re­turned in time to see the Proteas suf­fer a 211- run defeat in the se­ries opener.

The Proteas will pace bowler Kag­iso Rabada as he serves a one- game ban for swear­ing.
