• Wood excels on day two of fourth Test against South Africa
• ‘I want to affect England games, it would mean a hell of a lot’
Mark Wood has said helping England to a series victory in South Africa would make up for years of injury heartbreak after he starred with both bat and ball to move Joe Root’s team into a dominant position on day two of the fourth Test.
The 30-year-old fast bowler struck a quickfire unbeaten 35 with the bat to help the tourists to 400 in their first innings before taking three for 21 with the ball as South Africa stumbled to the close on 88 for six.
