Ben Stokes hits fastest England double century in Tests
Ben Stokes hit the fastest double century for England and the second quickest in history on day two of the second Test against South Africa.

The all-rounder, 74 overnight, raced to 200 in 163 balls in Cape Town to beat Ian Botham's 220-ball England record.

Only New Zealand's Nathan Astle has reached the landmark more quickly, off 153 balls against England in 2002.

Stokes, 24, was eventually out for 258 from 198 balls as he and Jonny Bairstow added 399 for the sixth wicket.

England, 1-0 up in the four-match series and resuming on 317-5 on Sunday, added 196 in 25 overs in a thrilling morning session to reach lunch on 513-5.

Stokes hit five fours in the opening two overs of the day and smashed spinner Dane Piedt for 16 in three balls, moving from 150 to his double century in just 28 deliveries.
