South Africa drop Duminy for second Test

England vs South Africa: Kagiso Rabada's ban is 'a big loss' for Proteas and cricket, says Dean Elgar England v South Africa second Test betting preview and tips

South Africa took a valuable lead of 130 runs on day two of the second Test against England at Trent Bridge after hosts were bowled out for 205 in their first innings. Clearly a punt on Philander is pretty speculative and there's plenty that can go wrong along the way, but 50/1 looks double a fair price for me.

The next ball Morris launched into a massive appeal after striking Stuart Broad on the pads, the umpires were unmoved but South Africa reviewed and had the decision overturned.

Solidity was Joe Root's stated aim on assuming the captaincy in February.

England's Jonny Bairstow is bowled by South Africa's Keshav Maharaj as Quinton de Kock (left) celebrates.

The 1998 match on the ground is best remembered for Allan Donald's duel with Mike Atherton as England levelled the series.

"I worry about the mentality of the Test batting because as soon as the things get hard - it swings around or spins - they play aggressively".

I don't think anyone expected Liam Dawson to be included in the 12, let alone start, and such was the uncertainty over that pick, that incredibly, many people actually expected England to start with five seamers for the first time at Lord's since 1993. His selection as a second spinner, rather than England playing an experienced front-line batsman like Jos Buttler, has proved a foolish luxury. "You don't need six bowling options".

Funeral for slain trooper set for Saturday
Calling hours for 27-year-old Nichole Walters are scheduled for Sunday afternoon at the Fergerson Funeral Home in North Syracuse. Davis was shot and killed Sunday, July 9 when he responded to a domestic incident at a home in the town of Theresa.

"He didn't want to step on my toes and get in the way but it was great to have him around", Root told BBC Radio 5 Live's Tuffers and Vaughan show, when asked about Cook's presence. At Tea England were 1864/6 with Ben Stokes (0) and Bairstow (45) back in the hutch.

"So it is too easy to say Gary is technically not good enough because players like Smith have proved you can be good enough if your mind is strong".

It was yet another example of the resilience of a South Africa side who have lost just one of their last 19 away Test series. They batted well in the final session.

James Anderson ran through the South African tail as England allowed the Proteas to add just 26 runs to their overnight total.

Anderson, 35 at the end of the month, has limited himself to just a short bowling stint in the nets during England's two days of practice and Root trusts the paceman to get his preparation right.

And then there's the alarming way the batting collapsed in the second innings, and the fact the quicks - England's usual route to victory in home conditions - had combined match figures of 6-248 from 80 overs.

His technique dictates that he so likely to be trapped on the crease coming forward, as he was in the first innings at Lord's, that all top fast bowlers seem able to set him up for doing so.
