Stokes ‘Genius’ & Bairstow ‘Brilliant’ says Cook

Skipper Alastair Cook was keen to focus on the achievements of Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow after England endured a nervy final day in the second Test against South Africa in Cape Town.

Man-of-the-match Stokes smashed the fastest Test double-century by an England batsman, off 163 deliveries, during a world-record sixth-wicket stand of 399 with Bairstow, who completed an emotional maiden international ton.

Although the tourists struggled to capitalise on a first-innings score of 629 for six declared, Cook was keen to focus on positives from Newlands.
