Vernon Philander taken to HOSPITAL during England v South Africa Test match

Eng vs SA Stokes ton four wickets for debutant Jones push Proteas to brink of follow-on

Electing to bat, England captain Joe Root gave his predecessor Cook the chance to impress again in the landmark Test at the south London venue which has become one of the cricket's most historic grounds over 137 years.

But he only bowled five more overs in Friday's first session before leaving the field and has yet to return.

The left-hander saw an edge off Philander fly past Dean Elgar at third slip when he had six to his name and was later adjudged lbw to Kagiso Rabada for 33, only for the decision to be overturned on review due to the ball pitching outside leg stump.

Johannesburg born and raised Jennings, the 11th man tried as an England Test opener alongside Alastair Cook since Andrew Strauss retired in 2012, was under pressure for his place after a run of low scores - including a duck in the first innings of this match.

That left then 178 runs behind England's first innings 353, which featured Ben Stokes's 112 and former captain Cook's 88.

The tourists had resumed on a highly vulnerable 126 for eight, having been 61 for seven at one stage on Friday following Roland-Jones' memorable four-wicket burst which accounted for South Africa's top order.

South Africa were bolstered by knowing Philander had been passed fit after a night on a hospital drip that followed a second day's play from which the all-rounder was largely absent.

Morkel got the Proteas going on Saturday with an off-driven four off Stuart Broad worthy of a frontline batsman rather than a fast bowler.

The Middlesex seamer completed a memorable debut five-fer with the wicket of Temba Bavuma, who had notched his eighth Test 50 before being caught behind by Jonny Bairstow.
