South Africa tried to downplay a drubbing by the second-string England Lions just five days ahead of next week's first Test following an innings and 56-run loss on Friday. South Africa collapsed to 183 all out in their second innings, with only Aidan Markram, who made 88 not out, offering much resistance after the Lions had responded to the tourists' first innings 433 with a huge total of 672. "We got a lot of positives out of the first two days," the wicketkeeper added. Seam bowler Ollie Robinson, recalled to the England squad for the South Africa series, removed Rassie van der Dussen on Friday to finish with five wickets in the match. Earlier in the match, Harry Brook (140) and Ben Duckett (145) were the major contributors to the Lions' total.
