A double hundred from Hashim Amla and Temba Bavuma’s maiden Test century saw South Africa continue to frustrate England on Day Four in Cape Town.
Beginning the day on 157 not out, former Derbyshire man Amla was finally dismissed for 201, off 477 balls with 27 fours, when Stuart Broad bowled him via an inside edge.
Faf Du Plessis (86) and Charlie Morris (69) provided able support to both pass fifty, before Bavuma made history, becoming the first black African to hit a Test century for South Africa, at which time the Proteas declared on 627-7, just two runs shy of England’s first-innings total.
England openers Alastair Cook and Alex Hales safely maneuvered the final six overs of the day to leave the visitors 16-0 at the close, a lead of 18 runs going into the final day of the second Test.
