South Africa have seized control of the first cricket test against England at Supersport Park in Centurion. The Proteas were bowled out for 284 inside the first ten minutes on day two, but then restricted the visitors to 157 for six at tea.

Four wickets fell in the post lunch session. Dwaine Pretorius picked up his first test wicket when he dismissed Joe Denley for 50, while Anrich Nortjie dismissed the dangerman, Ben Stokes, for 35. Both were caught behind.
