The Proteas head into the third day in a heap of trouble at 126 for eight, still 28 runs away from avoiding the follow-on.

Five years on, however, it was a different story as Amla exited for just six, when he could do nothing other than glove a lifting Roland-Jones ball to wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow.

And he then produced an even better cover-driven four off James Anderson, with England's record Test wicket-taker hit on the up.

Earlier, Temba Bavuma's gutsy 52 helped South Africa avoid the follow-on.

Philander left the field Friday with what was understood to be a recurrence of the stomach problems that had troubled him while he returned excellent figures of two wickets for 17 runs in 12 overs on Thursday's first day.

The seamer had got rid of opener Keaton Jennings and captain Joe Root in bowler-friendly conditions on the first morning as England battled against the swinging ball.

Anticipating the onslaught of criticism, BBC Director Tony Hall said the organisation is committed to closing the gender-pay gap. Was he overpaid? "I don't even want to answer that". "And we will also have the pay gap sorted by then, too".


After Cook's departure, Ben Stokes stepped on the gas and made a 72-ball fifty. The four-match series between England and South Africa is so far level at 1-1 with England winning the Lord's Test to begin Joe Root's captaincy career in the most ideal manner after the right-hander celebrated his new role with a flamboyant 190 but they lost the plot in the second encounter and stood on the losing side at Trent Bridge.

He was, however, still nine runs shy of his fifth Test hundred when No 11 Anderson came in.

Stokes raced from 91 to 109 in three consecutive deliveries from Keshav Maharaj that he heaved over the on-side for six.

Stokes eventually holed out off Morkel but the damage was done.
