New Delhi: England all-rounder Ben Stokes on Sunday stunned the South Africans with a breathtaking hundred in Cape Town.

The left-hander raced from 74 to 100 in just 12 balls, launching a fierce attack on the Proteas' bowlers.

Stokes got to the three-figure mark, picking up three runs with a drive to the edge of the fence off Chris Morris.

The 24-year-old completed his third Test century in just 105 balls. His innings included 16 fours and one six.

Having already won the 1st Test, Stokes now has put England in command of the second as well.
