ENG vs SA, 2nd Test, Day 1 Live Updates: South Africa’s decision to bat in the second Test against England at Old Trafford, Manchester has started to look like a poor one as England pacers left them at 77 for five at Lunch on Day 1. Anderson had Sarel Erwee caught behind before Broad got the better of both Dean Elgar and Keegan Petersen. England captain Ben Stokes then gave Aiden Markram his marching orders. After beating England by an innings and 12 runs, South Africa made one change to their side, bringing in spinner Simon Harmer in place of left-arm seamer Marco Jansen. England had announced their team yesterday, with Ollie Robinson replacing Matthew Potts in their only change from the first Test. England will look to put up a better show with the bat, as they were run ragged by the South African bowlers in both innings in the first match. (LIVE SCORECARD)
