England declared on their overnight score of 470 for seven on the second morning of their warm-up match against a South Africa Invitational XI.

Day one proved a successful outing for the tourists, with Ben Stokes (158) and James Taylor (114) helping themselves to handsome hundreds in Potchefstroom.

Nick Compton also hit 58 on his return to the side, while Jonny Bairstow (35) and Moeen Ali (33no) had some late time at the crease.

Alastair Cook decided that was enough and opted to take the field from the start of day two.
