The NightWatchmen – “Cometh the Firestarter” – Stokes and England restore parity at Sun-baked Newlands

A later than anticipated reflection on the 2nd Test at Newlands. Ken Borland celebrates his own 50* and reflects on the performances and efforts of the Proteas and the “Engerland”. The first century of the series, catching records, a dogged fightback from the Proteas on days 4 and 5 and a nail-biting finish into the final session of day 5. So, not much to reflect on before proceedings get going in PE in a day or two! Meanwhile, the Zoo Lake Opener tries to recover from late-night listening and viewing of proceedings from Down Under, jet-lag and three continents of travel. Go easy on him as he forgets who is who in the England bowling setup and when the next test starts!
It’s all set up for a magical conclusion and final two tests.
