England are truly on top in the Lord’s Test after they bowled out South Africa for 361 runs in first innings to take a 97-run. The hosts later extended that lead to 216 at close of play on day three. England were 119/1 at stumps with Alastair Cook and Gary Ballance at the crease. South Africa need to thank Vernon Philander for bringing the deficit below 100 with a brilliant half-century. Quinton de Kock also scored a fifty for the Proteas. England will look to seal the game on day four as they have nine wickets still in hand with six more sessions to play.
England XI: Alastair Cook, Keyton Jennings, Gary Ballance, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Liam Dawson, Stuart Broad, Mark Wood, James Anderson
South Africa XI: HG Kuhn, Dean Elgar, Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, Temba Bavuma, TB de Bruyn, Quinton de Kock, Vernon Philander, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Morne Morkel
