3rd Test Live Score card of South Africa v England at Cape Town!

Morne Morkel once again extracted England's linchpin, Andrew Strauss, before Dale Steyn burst back to form with two wickets in three balls including Kevin Pietersen for a duck, as South Africa responded to the loss of their last four wickets in 17 balls by claiming three massive wickets in reply, to leave England tottering on 63 for 3 by lunch on the second day at Newlands.

In a breathless morning session, ball dominated bat to an extravagant extent despite clear blue skies overhead, leaving England indebted to the calm obduracy of their Durban centurion, Alastair Cook, who once again left with great discipline outside off stump to instil a measure of order to a crazy wicket-strewn session. By lunch he was unbeaten on 27 from 57 balls, with Paul Collingwood digging in alongside him on 14. Article by Cricinfo
