Twitter was also stunned by Beaumont’s catch, with one user writing: “Things we learned today: Tammy Beaumont can actually fly.”
South Africa was in serious trouble at 89 for five, but a useful partnership between Kapp and Anne Bosch aided their recovery. Kapp then went on to fight the England bowlers alone, smashing them for a whopping 26 fours in her stunning 213-ball 150 knock.
Moreover, Kate Cross was by far England’s best bowler, taking four for 63. Lauren Bell took two wickets, while Isabelle Wong, Natalie Sciver, Sophie Ecclestone, and Alice Davidson Richards each took one.
Despite being in trouble at 121/5, England took a 44-run first-innings lead at Stumps on Day 2 thanks to a 207-run stand between Nat Sciver and Alice Davidson-Richards.
Davidson-Richards scored 107 on her Test debut, while Sciver was unbeaten on 119.
Lauren Bell and Issy Wong, both debutants for England, impressed also with their fast bowling.
Both players participated in the full Chance to Shine program in elementary school.
“I’m very proud to be one of the first two people to represent England after going through Chance to Shine,” Wong, 20, told ecb.co.uk.
“I recall it vividly, particularly a festival at Knowle Village Cricket Club where I got out and stood on my stumps! Chance to Shine has done a lot for English cricket, and I’m sure there will be more graduates after Belly and me.”
