Roland-Jones, meanwhile, still has a shot at a five-wicket haul in his maiden Test match after finishing with four for 39 at stumps on day two as South Africa collapsed in reply to an England total of 353 all out which owed much to Ben Stokes (112). He has now recorded at least a half-century in nine successive tests.With the clouds gathering and floodlights on, batting became more hard.

If Roland-Jones takes one more wicket in South Africa's first innings he will be the first player since Graham Onions in 2009 to take 5+ wickets in their debut bowling innings for England. The final test is at Old Trafford.

Bavuma initially harboured the strike but with Morne Morkel (17) showing an increasing liking for the bowling, the deficit was quickly reduced in a stand worth 47. Even though the England No. 3 scored just nine runs in the opening hour of play, he reached his maiden Test fifty with a trademark legside flick - his ninth boundary of the knock, shortly before the Lunch break.

Morkel finally picked up his first wicket when Ali was adjudged caught behind off an inside edge although DRS didn't provide conclusive proof that the left-hander had hit ball rather than pad.

But third slip Dean Elgar could not hold the sharp chance and the ball went for four.

In his Third Test as captain, Joe Root made a fearless call, pulling England's record Test wicket-taker Jimmy Anderson out of the attack after he had bowled only three overs, and throwing the ball to Roland-Jones.

But Bavuma was out soon afterwards, with Roland-Jones leading England off the field.

But, the word coming out of the Proteas camp on Friday was uncertain.

"We can save the game, the first target is to bowl them out or prolong the game, but we can bat out four sessions".

"It's not often you see a debutant settle as quickly as he did", Anderson said and added, "He looked very comfortable and very confident".

With England resuming on 171-4, they lost former captain Alastair Cook lbw to Morkel for 88.

It appeared Westley, who made 25 in England's first innings, was making a conscious effort to play straighter and only turn balls angled into his pads onto the legside.

The Proteas were 51 for six when Anderson, who turns 35 on Sunday, gave himself another early birthday present when he caught and bowled Chris Morris.
