South Africa 382-4 (Amla 91) v England Lions
Tour game, Worcester, day two

Four batsmen scored half centuries for South Africa as they raced to 382 for four at stumps on day two in the tour game against England Lions in Worcester.

After most part of the first day's play was lost due to bad weather, Proteas resumed their innings at 58 for one. Heino Kuhn (80 retired hurt) continued his good form from the previous day and completed his half-century with Hashim Amla (91 retired not out) following him.

After Kuhn decided to retire, George Garton (2-90) dismissed JP Duminy (25) to get his second wicket and Amla too decided to retire, nine runs short of a century to give other batsmen a chance.

Theunis de Bruyn (0) was dismissed without troubling the scorers but Temba Bavuma (85 not out) and Quinton de Kock (51) added 82 runs in less than 20 overs. De Kock's half-century came at a strike-rate close to 88 while Bavuma was solid during his 148 ball knock.

Keaton Jennings (1-35) accounted for de Kock in the 76th over following which Bavuma and Chris Morris (25 not out) consolidated the innings to 382 for four in 97.3 overs before bad light stopped play.
