Aided by an 85-run partnership between skipper Dean Elgar and Sarel Erwee and a middle order fight-back by Marco Jansen and Keshav Maharaj, South Africa took a 124-run lead against England on Day 2 of the opening Test at Lord's.

After bundling out the hosts for a paltry 165 in just 45 overs in the first session on Day 2, South Africa skipper Elgar and Erwee played patient innings of 47 and 73 respectively to give the visitors a solid start, with Jansen and Maharaj building on it with identical scores of 41 each.
