England will look to capitalize on good work from Ben Stokes and Ollie Pope when play resumes on day two of the third Test against South Africa.
Stokes and Pope combined in an unbroken stand of 76 in the evening session, guiding the tourists away from a potentially tricky position to a promising stumps score of 224 for four on day one.
Stokes’ ability to take command of a match, with bat or ball, needs no re-stating and Ollie Pope looked in wonderful touch as he cashed in against a tiring attack. Together they will look to push England towards 400, leaving their bowlers the safety net they might need on a sluggish pitch in Port Elizabeth.
