Not many expected South Africa to fight back the way the eventually did against England, after the visitors posted a colossal 629-6 in the first innings. Considering their recent form, viewers expected the Proteas to simply wither away and falter against the famed English pace bowling trio of Anderson, Broad and Finn.

Lead by the enigma of Hashim Amla, the Proteas resolutely fought back and surprisingly, declared the innings with just 2 runs short of England’s total.

Amla was dismissed soon after registering his double ton, and his return to form could be danger signs for England.

Temba Bavuma got to his maiden test hundred, as the 7th wicket stand between him and Chris Morris ensured that England had no chance to contain South Africa. Twitter lauded the Proteas for their efforts and below are some tweets.
