Alistair Cook and Jonathan Trott have steered England to 158-1 at tea in the first Test match against South Africa at The Oval.
Andrew Strauss won the toss and chose to bat on the flat pitch, which has not offered much to the South African attack.
The tourists got off to a dream start in the very first over, when Morne Morkel trapped the England captain for lbw with the fourth ball of the day.
After pitching the ball outside off stump, the ball nipped back and caught Strauss on the knee roll.
Umpire Steve David had initially given Strauss not out, but the decision was overturned following South Africa's review.
Since then, Trott (69*) and Cook (69*) have batted well to ensure that England make the most of the flat pitch.
