England vs. South Africa, First Test, Day 2

End of day score. England: 385 all out. South Africa 86-1. The great glory of Test cricket is that a side can be dominant at the end of one day’s play and by the end of the next day’s play can be under the cosh. That happened to England today, as they collapsed from 275-3 to 385 all out before South Africa accumulated runs, with some painfully slow progress, to leave themselves in a good situation to pile on the agony tomorrow.
