Rabada gives SA the edge

Kagiso Rabada took the prize wicket of Ben Stokes as South Africa held England to 260 for six on Friday's first day of the fourth Test at Old Trafford.

All-rounder Stokes, fresh from a hundred in England's 239-run victory in the third Test at The Oval, was leading a revival with the bat.

But fast bowler Rabada struck with the new ball in the penultimate over of the day when a full-length delivery, which surprised Stokes, smashed into the base of the stumps and bowled the left-handed batsman for 58. Rabada yelled in joy.


ENGLAND: First Innings 260 for 6 (Cook 46, Root 52, Stokes; Morkel 1-58-1; Rabada 2-52, Olivier 2-72)

SOUTH AFRICA: Elgar, Kuhn, Amla, de Kock, du Plessis (capt), Bavuma, de Bruyn, Maharaj, Rabada, Morkel, Olivier.
