 It has been obvious in the first two Tests that Jennings simply isn't good enough to open the batting in Test cricket, three ducks already in only nine innings. His basic technique is awful, as evidenced by this morning's dismissal. No footwork, just hanging his bat out, a walking wicket. It is difficult to understand why he keeps being picked, he clearly wasn't considered good enough to play for South Africa where he was born, grew up and learned his cricket. Captain of South Africa under 19s, he didn't come to England until he was 20, qualified under the four year residency rule, then fast tracked into the England test side. He clearly has the right connections.

Currently 218/5 from 71 overs. New ball due pretty soon. Interesting comment from the great Michael Holding, that as a bowling side you'd be disappointed to concede 300 runs on this pitch. Could be a low-scoring game then.

Thats Stokes 50

England 234 -5 off 73.3 overs

So that's 353 all out. If Michael Holding is to be believed that's a pretty decent score. But, as Sir Geoffrey always likes to point out, you don't know how a pitch is playing until both sets of batters and bowlers have had a go on it. Bring on the SA batsmen and our bowlers!

SA now 47/4 as Toblerone has snaffled de Kock (I enjoyed typing that) to go with his other three! England's total looking better by the minute here.
