Broad strikes back for England

Stuart Broad took two wickets in a fiery opening spell as England hit back on the second day of the first Test against South Africa at Kingsmead on Sunday. South Africa were 55 for two at tea after bowling out England for 303. Broad bowled Stiaan van Zyl and had Hashim Amla caught behind to reduce South Africa to 14 for two, negating any advantage the hosts might have had after taking six English wickets in an extended morning’s play. Van Zyl did not offer a shot to the second ball of the innings and saw the ball cut back to hit his off stump. South African captain Amla survived two appeals for caught behind off Broad and was dropped by wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow off Chris Woakes before edging a routine catch to Bairstow after making seven. Broad took two for eight in a five-over spell. South Africa would have been in worse trouble if AB de Villiers, on 11, had not survived an umpires’ review after edging Steven Finn low to Ben Stokes at gully.
