South Africa vs England 2nd Test 2009: Report of Day 2

South Africa and England are playing their second test match at Kingsmead, Durban. Second day of the five-day test match was played today. At the start of the day host team South Africa was in pressure after losing top five players within 175 runs. AB de Villiers and Mark Boucher were in the crease. Villiers’s 50 and Boucher’s 39 helped their team to make a good fighting score. However, they could not stay longer in front of England’s strong bowling line up. They got all out to score 343 runs in their first innings.

English bowler Graeme Swann was the highest wicket taker for his team. He alone took four wickets. James Anderson and Stuart Broad took two wickets each.

After coming to chase South Africa’s innings, England made good start and scored 103 runs for 1 in their first innings. Alastair Cook is on the crease along with Jonathan Trott. They respectively scored 31 and 17. Andrew Strauss scored 54 runs. Morne Morkel took his wicket.

South African bowlers will have to show extra ordinary performance if they want to win the match or finish the match with at least draw. Proteas batsmen had shown disappointing performance. I hope they will try to find out the problem and solve it so that they can make strong come back in the second innings.
