However, all the spotlight was stolen by Heinrich Klaasen, who displayed immense intent and made sure that he utilized his form to a great extent. Klaasen played some brilliant shots and made sure that his side stayed in the game, even though the wickets fell in quick succession at the other end.
While, Klaasen took the game by storm with the bat, on the other hand, South African bowlers stole the show with the ball. Marco Jansen, Lungi Ngidi, Raba and Gerald Coetzee ran through the batting line-up of the England team.
The final partnership between Mark Wood and Gus Atkinson was the best thing that happened for England throughout the game.
