The keep­ers

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

Quin­ton de Kock and Jonny Bairstow were out­stand­ing with the gloves in this match. Both took some won­der­fully ath­letic catches down the leg-side – Bairstow’s to dis­miss Faf du Plessis and De Kock to end Alas­tair Cook’s in­nings yes­ter­day. There’s an old say­ing that you’re not sup­posed to no­tice a wicket-keeper but they’ve hung on to some ex­cel­lent catches in this se­ries al­ready and are well worth the price of ad­mis­sion.
