England fight back to end on 179 for 4 against SA
Sunday, 27 December 2015 - 10:04
Nick Compton and James Taylor half-centuries led England's fightback after an early collapse against South Africa on a rain-affected opening day in the first Test in Durban.
The pair came together at 49 for 3 and they added a patient 125 for the fourth wicket before Taylor who made 70 became Dale Steyn's third victim late on.
Compton was unbeaten on 63 as England closed a truncated day on 179 for 4.
All five days are likely to be needed if there is to be a result on a slow, flat wicket.
