Here's Gnasher to break the deadlock

37.6BA Stokes to F du Plessis, 2 runs, on the pads, neatly clipped to midwicket. South Africa's resistance continues, and that will be drinks.
37.5BA Stokes to HM Amla, 1 run, in the air again, but finds the gap into the covers with a checked drive.

Kunal: "Cook, Jennings, Malan, Stokes, Moeen, Broad and Anderson. 7 in the current England team who bowl with one hand and bar with the other."

37.4BA Stokes to HM Amla, No run, forward, half-forward to be precise, dead-batted to cover.

Root pops off the field, so Stokes is briefly calling the shots. Bring on Malan's leggies!

37.3BA Stokes to F du Plessis, 1 run, wider on the crease, fenced with the angle to midwicket.
37.2BA Stokes to F du Plessis, No run, loose from Stokes, a full-toss outside off, but du Plessis is too startled to cash in.
37.1BA Stokes to F du Plessis, No run, driven ... in the air ... but just short of Stokes in his followthrough! Through it too soon as Stokes rolls his fingers.
End of over 37.  A maiden over! 107/3 after 222 balls.
HM Amla 52 (114b 9x4 0x6 ) SCJ Broad 10-5-18-1
F du Plessis 22 (34b 3x4 0x6 ) more

Andre: "# useless Info. S.A Openers have not scored a 100 Partnership in the Last 9 Tests. Last Test they did was against SL in the 1st Test." Useless info, or info about uselessness?

Mike: "Another one for the Statscave: How many test sides have had more than one bowler that bowls with one hand but bats with the other, ala Rabada and Morkel (RH bowler; LH bat)?" Like it ... that'll get their permutations sweating

End of over 36. 1 runs this over. 107/3 after 216 balls.
