England have South Africa on the ropes, and it’s a matter of when they’ll finish them off.
England were pegged back by the home side at long last in the series, and they will hope that will continue.
South Africa hope for emotional spark on Vernon Philander’s farewell Test.
Sri Lanka finished Day 3 at Harare 53 behind in first innings; Dhawan will miss the T20Is and ODIs in New Zealand, while Ishant may miss the Tests; de Kock has been appointed South Africa's ODI captain; and India and Bangladesh won at the Under-19 World Cup.
Stumps, Day 4: England 499/9 decl. (Pope 135*, Stokes 120; Maharaj 5/180) lead South Africa 209 (de Kock 63; Bess 5/51, Broad 3/30) and 102/6 (du Plessis 36; Root 4/31) by 188 runs.
England primed to take game by scruff of the neck, unless de Kock can finally convert starts.
Stumps, Day 2: England 499/9 decl. (Stokes 120, Pope 135*; Maharaj 5/180) vs South Africa 60/2 (Elgar 32*; Bess 2/12)
It was a day of attrition at Newlands, and both teams will believe they have control going into day 2.
West Indies have included Dwayne Bravo in their squad; Root missed nets ahead of the Port Elizabeth Test; and the Royals will play the Challengers in Qualifier 2 of the BPL, the winner among whom will face the Tigers in the final.
Stokes does it again, India ease past Sri Lanka, and Zimbabwe’s new captains.
