England beat South Africa by an innings and 85 runs
Right then, that brings an end to the second Test match in Manchester and there is all to play for going into the third game. South Africa secured an innings victory in the first game and England have returned the favor in style. England have secured some crucial World Test Championship points and will be looking to seal a series win. South Africa will want to brush off the disappointment and come back stronger.  We move to the capital city of London for the series decider that will be played at The Oval. There will bit of a break as the game will take place on Thursday, 8th of September at 3.30 pm IST (10 am GMT). Our build-up though begins a lot earlier. So do join us for the same. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
Ben Stokes the skipper of England, is the Player of the Match. He says it has been incredible to play here at Manchester, and James Anderson bowling from his own end is even more special. Adds this victory has given them a lot of confidence and now the series is set up nicely. On Zak Crawley he says that he played incredibly and negotiated the new ball brilliantly, he set the innings for them. On Ben Foakes he says that he should be receiving this award, as he has been incredible with the bat and behind the stumps. When asked about Ollie Robinson, he says that it's good to have him back, and to see him perform well it's even better. He is a quality bowler. Ben Stokes states that he just adapted himself to the pitch and to the conditions. He had a positive mindset while coming to bat, which always helps them. Says that his knee is in good condition, he adds that he wanted to bowl with the old ball and bring the other pacers only once the new ball was taken.
Dean Elgar the skipper of South Africa is down for a chat. He says that England were far better than them through the 3 days and he congratulates them for their victory. Adds that he has no regrets about his decision on team selection or even selecting to bat first. Further says that the first innings score is always important but they failed to put that on the board, and let them down. Adds that there are a lot of positives and learnings to take from this game. They have a few days before the next game and they will regroup.  Mentions that spinners were getting a lot of purchase from this wicket and that is why he did go for them, rather than the pacers. He says that cricket is a funny game and they do need a bit of luck going their way. On Rassie van der Dussen he says that he has fractured his finger, and he is most likely ruled out of the series.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier in the Test, Dean Elgar won the toss and made the decision of batting first on a relatively dry wicket. His decision did backfire as South Africa were bundled out for 151 runs, with Stuart Broad and James Anderson grabbing 3 wickets each for England. Coming to bat, England put up a healthy total of 415 runs on the board. Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes were the two batters who notched up their respective tons and were the main architects of getting such a commanding lead for England. Not to forget, the contributions made by Zak Crawley and Jonny Bairstow were vital as well. They eventually ended up getting a lead of 264 runs, and that was when Ben Stokes decided to declare. His decision did work like a charm as they bundled out South Africa for just 179 runs.
The visitors had a tough task coming into Day 3. They were trailing by 241 runs, and got off to the worst possible start losing three wickets early. South Africa went into Tea with some hope as Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen put on a stubborn performance to deny the English bowlers. They would have loved to continue but Rassie van der Dussen departed soon after Tea ending an 87-run partnership having faced 261 deliveries. The wicket caused a mini-collapse as they lost 7 wickets for 38 runs and conceded the game to the hosts. Credit must be given to English bowlers who were disciplined and continued to toil in the hunt for wickets. The three front-line fast bowlers picked up the first three wickets but it was a fiery spell from the captain Ben Stokes that changed the game. He came out after Tea with determination and picked up the wickets of both the set batters. Ollie Robinson and James Anderson cleaned up the tail ending with 4 and 3 wickets respectively.
England have roared back in style! What a complete performance this has been by the hosts and they tie the series 1-1! They came out with intent after the Tea break and ripped through the South African lower order to win by an innings and 85 runs. There was a lot of talk about the England tactics and they have proved once again that they have changed the mentality in the group. After the disappointing loss in the first game, they returned the favor and demolished the visitors. South Africa will be sad that they have let the opportunity to grab a series win, slip out of their hands.

OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! He has done it once again! What a match the skipper is having here. Two wickets in two overs for him and now he has gotten rid of another set batter. An unplayable delivery from him. Back of a length, around the fourth stump line, nipping away a tad. Keegan Petersen looks to leave this one alone, but the ball goes off the shoulder of the bat towards the keeper. Ben Foakes once again takes a sharp catch.

But he manages to get only a slight outside edge towards the keeper. Ben Foakes does the rest. The crowd at Manchester is finally awake!

We are back for the final session of the day! The players make their way out to the field. South Africa will be hoping Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen continue the good work and take them through to Stumps. England desperately need a breakthrough. The skipper Ben Stokes will begin proceedings after the break.
... DAY 3, SESSION 3 ...
It's been a rather frustrating session for England, but by the looks of it, they are still in control of the game. However, Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen are making the English bowlers work very hard and are not giving this away without a fight. All their bowlers did bowl well and caused a certain amount of problems but were not rewarded for their good work. Ben Stokes did manage to get the outside edge of Rassie van der Dussen's bat but there was no appeal on that ball. Rassie van der Dussen will make sure he makes England pay for that one. It's only a matter of one wicket for England. They will be aiming to break this stand in the third session and capitalize on that. Can they do that? Or will Rassie van der Dussen and Keegan Petersen continue to frustrate England? We will find out soon. Do join back at 8.30 pm IST (3.00 pm GMT) for the final session of Day 3.
A wicketless session for South Africa! They might have not scored many runs here, but they have done exceptionally well to survive an entire session. Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen have carried on their good work from the first session into the second session of the day. They have shown great resilience and determination so far. They have now put together 87 and have got South Africa out of trouble. They still have a long way to go and a lot of work to do. But for now, they will be pretty pleased with how things panned out in the post-Lunch session.

DRINKS! Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen have continued their good work and have done well to survive the first hour of the second session. They have put together 71 runs till now but they still have a long way to go. England have not been a lot threatening but they are still in control of this game and will aim to break this stand quickly. Stuart Broad is brought into the attack.

We are back for the post-Lunch session! The players are out in the middle. Rassie van der Dussen and Keegan Petersen have a task in hand and South Africa will be hoping they continue from where they left off. Jack Leach will begin proceedings after the break. Let's go...
... DAY 3, SESSION 2 ...
For South Africa, it's been disappointing, once again. It's just been another session of fighting hard for them. But they will be pleased about not losing any wickets in the last 30 minutes or so. After losing Dean Elgar, Sarel Erwee, and Aiden Markram relatively early in the session, South Africa were in a real spot of bother. But the partnership between Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen has done some sort of repair work. Together they have put an unbeaten stand of 34 runs. Keegan Petersen has looked in fine touch, he is currently batting on 20 and will look to continue his good work in the post-Lunch session. Not to forget, Rassie van der Dussen is out there batting with an injured finger. He has fought hard till now. But how long do you think he can go on for? South Africa will need him to stick around for a while as they are still 176 runs behind. Do join us at 6.10 pm IST (12.40 pm GMT) for the middle session.
As expected, the first session of Day 3 has belonged to England. They have grabbed 3 wickets and have continued their domination in this game. Ben Stokes will be a happy man! It was James Anderson who provided his side with their first breakthrough by sending Dean Elgar packing. Ollie Robinson followed up and sent the other opener back without wasting much time. The third pacer of England, Stuart Broad came into the attack and was rewarded with the wicket of Aiden Markram for his impressive bowling. However, after taking those three wickets they found it difficult to break the stand between Rassie van der Dussen and Keegan Petersen. Well, there is still a lot of time left in this game and England will not worry about that for now. It's been a morning that has been firmly controlled by the English pacers.

Ollie Robinson To Sarel Erwee OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Ollie Robinson tries everything and finally gets the breakthrough! He bowls this on a good length and just outside off from 'round the wicket. Sarel Erwee feels for the ball and then decides to leave it alone. The decision is late as he gets a faint nick through to the keeper. Ben Foakes makes no mistake behind the wicket as he grabs onto this. South Africa is in all sorts of trouble now as both the openers have departed.

We are ready for action to get underway! The players have made their way out in the middle. Sarel Erwee and Dean Elgar will resume their batting for South Africa. Joe Root will be the one starting with the ball. Let's go!
South Africa on the other hand face a tough challenge ahead of them. They need to bat all day long if they need to redeem themselves in this game. We cannot count the visitors completely out of this one. The pitch has flattened and the conditions have only become easier for batting. The South African openers remain unscathed at the end of Day 2 and gave the visitors something to smile about. The duo will look to carry on the same way and build a big partnership. Can they do so? We will know soon.
England have completely bossed this Test. They were clinical with the ball in the first innings of the game and put on a strong show with the bat later on. Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes were the players who notched up their respective centuries and put together a partnership of 173 runs to guide England to a healthy lead. Eventually, Stokes decided to declare after a mighty lead of 264. They did fail to grab a wicket in the 9 overs they bowled before the end of the day, but will be raring to go and clinch this game. However, it might not seem like a walk in the park as the conditions have eased down.
Hello, hello, and welcome back folks! We are now ready for Day 3 of this intriguing Test between South Africa and England. Day 3, a day which is fondly referred to as the ‘moving day’ in a Test match. However, this game has already moved at a rapid pace and by the looks of it, we might just get a result at the end of the day. It is the home side, England that are in a commanding position. They still lead by 241 runs and need all 10 wickets to wrap this game up and level the series. While South Africa will need to pull off something special to save this game.
... DAY 3 ...
Right then! That concludes our proceedings for Day 2! We have witnessed another engrossing day of Test cricket and the action now continues on Day 3. The first ball of Day 3 will be bowled at 3.30 pm IST (10 am GMT). Our build-up though begins a lot earlier. So do join us for the same. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
The day started with England trailing by 40 runs and they were just four runs behind when Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes got together at the crease. The overnight batters Zak Crawley and Jonny Bairstow departed early and gave South Africa an opportunity to come back in the game. The post Lunch session yielded 96 runs and no wickets were lost in that period. From that point on the visitors were chasing the game and will have to bat out of their skins if they are to salvage something. We have seen great things happen in cricket and South Africa will be hoping they can pull off something special. England are right on top and will be looking to close this game at the earliest.
England will be thrilled with their performance and have just gone from strength to strength as the game has progressed. They will be eager to run through the South African batting lineup and clinch victory. Ben Stokes got to his 12th Test century right after the Tea break but could not keep going as he was dismissed in the quest for quick runs. Ben Foakes kept going though and was well accompanied by the lower order as they built on the lead. He reached his second century in Test cricket and remained unbeaten. The skipper decided to declare early as he wanted to bowl a few overs at the visitors but despite bowling really well, they were unable to get the breakthrough. They will be raring to go when they return to play on Day 3.
South Africa are really far behind in this game but will go into Day 3 with all their wickets intact in the second innings. They trail by 241 runs still and they will have to bat long if they are to have any chance of coming back in this game. The visitors will be thoroughly disappointed as their entire bowling attack was blunted by the Ben combination. They did pick up four wickets in the session but the Englishmen were in attack mode. Anrich Nortje was the pick of the bowlers taking three wickets with Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj chipping in with two each. Dean Elgar and Sarel Erwee have negotiated 9 tricky overs before Stumps and they will be hoping to build a platform for the rest of the batters.
