A major turning point on Saturday afternoon – Joe Root was magnificent, applying pressure back onto the South Africans after the early loss of the openers. Such was the nature of his attack that while he was at the crease, England looked like they would at least equal South Africa’s first innings total. But Morkel, already in the midst of a lengthy spell, went for one more over, inducing a false drive, with De Kock taking a fine catch. It changed the course of England’s innings, they collapsed – losing their last six wickets for 62 runs. That 130-run lead for the South Africans was immense.
