Under the captaincy of Dean Elgar, South Africa is completely dominating the ongoing Lord’s Test against England as the Proteas managed to take a lead of more than 150 runs. On Day 3 of the Test, England was in need of some quick wickets, and the hosts got the much-needed breakthrough in the very first over of the day, and it was due to the brilliance of Stuart Broad who was fielding at mid-on.
In an over bowled by Matthew Potts, on the third delivery, Stuart Broad churned out a one-handed stunner out of thin air to send Rabada packing. Potts had bowled a short delivery, and Rabada decided to take it on and he pulled the ball. Broad, jumped high in the air to take a one-handed ripper at mid-on to dismiss Rabada. After taking the catch, Broad was as surprised as the rest of his teammates.

England’s skipper Ben Stokes was visibly chuffed and was seen hugging Stuart Broad tight and not letting him go. On Day 2, South Africa held an edge over England after extending their lead to 124. England only managed to register the score o 165 in the first innings as Kagiso Rabada completed a 5-wicket-haul, and then South Africa reached a score of 289/7 at stumps.
However, England captain Ben Stokes gave it his all on the second day, and he bowled a fiery spell, with a barrage of bouncers, and this helped him return with three wickets. Stokes got the wickets of Rassie van der Dussen, Sareel Erwee, and Keshav Maharaj. Earlier, England was bundled out for 165 with Ollie Pope top-scoring with a knock of 73.
