Elgar leads from front
Dean Elgar showed the qualities South Africa recognised in naming him captain, making 77 to lead the Proteas fightback against the West Indies on the first day of the second cricket test. Elgar’s late partnership of 79 with Quinton de Kock, his predecessor as captain, solidified South Africa’s recovery from 37-3 in a damp morning session after being sent in to bat. De Kock followed up his match-defining 141 not out in the first test with an unbeaten 58 which had South Africa 218-5 when stumps were drawn in bad light, just before the rain returned. South Africa lead the two-test series 1-0.
