England 629-6 dec., South Africa 290-3

A lot of dropped catches and missed chances, not only in this session or this innings but throughout the game so far. There were two obvious drops towards the end of the Stokes/Bairstow partnership, one by Morkel on the boundary and the one which AB turned into a run-out. Joe Root dropped a chance at slip off Jimmy last night, Jimmy dropped one off Root this morning, and Compton missed a chance at gully this afternoon. It was a great relief when Anderson managed to catch AB de Villiers off Finn’s bowling, although even that was juggled. South Africa have also had a successful review this session. Any other obvious chances I’ve forgotten?
