Day 2 of 5:
South Africa 284 and 72/4
PRETORIA – Vernon Philander produced pin-point accurate frontline bowling to give South Africa the edge on the second day of the first Test against England at SuperSport Park on Friday.
He played a leading role in England's first-innings demise for 181 runs giving South Africa a 103-run lead.
The Proteas claimed a 175 lead after the second day in which a total of 15 wickets fell with the advantage seesawing throughout the two days.
South Africa made another topsy turvy start with the bat in the second innings with opener Aiden Markram (2) losing his wicket on only the fifth delivery from Jimmy Anderson.
