The Proteas is fighting hard to save the second test match against England at Newlands in Cape Town. Set a near-impossible target of 438 for victory, the Proteas resumed their second innings on the fifth and final morning on 126 for the loss of two wickets.

They went to lunch on 170 for four wickets, having lost night watchman Keshav Maharaj for three and Captain Faf du Plessis for a patient 19. However, opening batsman, Pieter Malan, is still there on 83 while Rassie van der Dussen has one to his name.
