Coming out to bat, the South African openers, Dean Elgar and Sarel Erwee gave a solid start to the Proteas as they made a partnership of 85 runs.  However, their partnership witnessed an unfortunate end.

It was a real moment of fortune for England, as they finally got their breakthrough. James Anderson roared in celebration as Dean Elgar walked off shaking his head. The southpaw opener was looking to work off his pads, it clipped the thigh guard and then bobbled back off his right arm, Elgar unable to do anything about it as the ball trundled gently into the middle and leg stump.

Here is the video of the dismissal of Dean Elgar:
