258 hero Ben Stokes after sublime Cape Town knock

Ben Stokes overpowered South Africa, and the record books, with Jonny Bairstow acting as an able accomplice to one of the most devastating batting performances in Test history.

Stokes was an unstoppable force from the very first over of the day, immediately picking up from where he left off last night, on way to scoring the fastest-ever Test double-century by an England player.

It was just one of a host of records that were screwed up, thrown out and re-written on a day the 10,000-strong touring English support at Newlands will never forget.
