Emirates Old Trafford – Ben has scored his first century as England Test captain.
Ben’s 103 runs against South Africa in the second Test helped England to declare their first innings on 415-9.
Patience was the watch word in the early stages of Ben’s innings. His half century, which was brought up with a 6, took 101 balls.
Circumspection gave way to aggression, with Ben taking just 57 more balls to reach his twelfth Test century and second on home soil against South Africa.
Thanks to a 173 run sixth wicket partnership between Ben and Ben Foakes (113*) England are now in a strong position to level the series.
