England in charge

Caddick Andrew Caddick claimed his best Test haul


England 366-9 declared (Hussain 146no)
South Africa 156 (Caddick 7-46) & 27-0

England are firmly on top in the third Test after dismissing South Africa for 156 in the first innings and enforcing the follow-on.

In a superb afternoon's cricket, Andrew Caddick took 7-46, his best Test figures, to put England in a superb position to tie the series.


Caddick factfile
1968: Born November 21, Christchurch, New Zealand
1991: Makes first-class debut for Somerset
1992: Qualifies for England
1993: Makes Test debut against Australia
1993-94: Takes Test career-best of 6-65 against Windies
1999: Named Wisden Cricketer of the Year.
A last gasp half-century from Shaun Pollock helped to bring some respect to the South African innings late on.

But Caddick again provided the breakthrough to leave tail-enders Nanty Hayward and Paul Adams exposed at the crease.

Darren Gough, whose form is still in question after another frustrating day, captured the final wicket, when Adams played a rising ball to Chris Silverwood.

England captain Nasser Hussain immediately asked Hansie Cronje, the South African skipper, to bat again, before bad light stopped play with South Africa at 27-0, 183 runs behind.

Caddick on a roll

Caddick's haul included three wickets in one over.

The Somerset bowler dismissed South Africa's top three batsmen in an 11-ball spell before returning for the 32nd over of the innings and capturing three wickets in five balls.

Gary Kirsten, Herschelle Gibbs and Jacques Kallis all fell to catches behind to leave South Africa reeling on 24-3.

Gough struck shortly after lunch by removing Daryll Cullinan's leg stump before left-arm spinner Phil Tufnell claimed the key wicket of all-rounder Lance Klusener.

Silverwood had already felt the brunt of Klusener's attacking stroke play when he was hammered for 14 in one over, which prompted Hussain to throw the ball to Tufnell.

It was a bowling change which reaped immediate rewards with Tufnell striking with his third delivery as Darren Maddy claimed a smart catch at short leg as Klusener pushed forward.

Caddick was then recalled and dismissed Hansie Cronje, Mark Boucher and Allan Donald in the same over.

Gough completed the innings by tempting Adams into chipping straight to Silverwood.

Roller farce

Even before play began it had been an embarrassing morning for the South Africans.



The heavy downpour got in the battery and it wouldn't work

The action was delayed for an hour by a damp outfield, and then for another 23 minutes by a failed battery in an electrical pitch roller.

Overnight rain which had made the outfield soggy had also got into the heavy roller normally used on the wicket between innings.

A giant alternative was deemed too large by the umpires, while Cronje appeared unhappy with the groundstaff's alternative ploy of simply using a light roller several times.

A slow handclap began from the stands while mechanics fitted a new battery to the original machine, which finally appeared 15 minutes late.

The head of South Africa's cricket board Ali Bacher apologised for the farcical delay.

"We deeply regret what happened," explained Dr Ali Bacher, the managing director of the United Cricket Board of South Africa.

"Although the roller was covered overnight, water got into the battery and it would not start."

Bacher added that he had asked the match referee if the time lost could be made up later in the day.
