We are back for the second session. The players are out in the middle.

Lunch, day 4. Another solid session for South Africa in this Test. They kept piling on runs and scored 111 without any loss of wicket in this session. The pitch is helping batsmen and South Africa are making most of it. Hashim Amla brought up his second 250 plus score and Kallis scored his 43rd Test ton. Few more batting milestones as Kallis now has scored 2000-plus runs versus England. Second consecutive 250-run stand for the Proteas. England looking below par as the lead is 129. Looking at the way South Africa are batting, they should give around 300-plus lead at least and then declare. The home side must try and should not allow to give them a big lead. Stays tuned for the next session.

Hello and warm welcome to the coverage of day 4 of the first Test. South Africa hold the upper hand as they are 403/2 and have the lead already. They will look to extend this lead and give England a tough time ahead. The home side were pretty ordinary yesterday with their bowling as they were toiled for heaps of runs from the Protea batsmen. Still some batting to come and England have to bowl well and shouldn't leak easy runs. Hope we don't get any weather delay today as well. Can England comeback hard today or will it be another day for the South Africans? Stay with us to find that out.

Stumps, day 3. A solid day for South Africa who batted well whole day. They just lost one wicket of Graeme Smith who was out for 131 to Bresnan as he was the only English bowler to get success today. Hashim Amla continued batting and he's on 183* now. Kallis joined the party as well, who's at the crease with Amla on 83*. Terrific day for the Proteas, they'll look to bat through at least till tea tomorrow. England need to pick early few wickets or South Africa will post a massive total. That's it from us today, do join us tomorrow for the day 4 action.

It is quite sunny out today, the batsmen will try to take this advantage and hang on to bat through.

Welcome to the coverage of day 3 of the 1st Test. It has been a good contest so far where South Africa made a good comeback in the rain hit day yesterday. They were 86/1 at stumps, skipper Smith who's playing his 100th Test is at the crease on 37 along with Hashim Amla who's not out on 47. No big success for the English bowlers yesterday as they picked up just one wicket of Petersen who was out for a duck. The home side will try to come back hard and will look to pick a few early wickets in the first session. South Africa, on the other hand will try to bat as long as they can and post a good total. We hope to get a good day's game without any weather disturbance.

That's it from us then! Thanks a lot for tuning in and looking forward for your company tomorrow at 1000 GMT (1530 IST). Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

Handshakes all around, but since Cook's dismissal, it has been South Africa's day. They bowled out England to 385 and after losing Petersen early, Amla and Smith have done well. The deficit is now 299 and if we have a good weather tomorrow, the Proteas will look to consolidate.

The news is play will resume at 5.55pm local time. There will be scheduled 27 overs in today's play.

Cricket South Africa tweets "Inspection due at 6.40pm SA time, 5.40pm in England."

Covers are coming off, the play will resume shortly.

Ayaz Memon tweets, "Uh oh, weather's getting worse. Further play btwn SA-Eng unlikely today not smart for rain gods to intrude in such an enthralling contest"

Bad news, the covers are on. The players have left the field. There's a bit of a drizzle, only the main covers are on as of yet. Wait, it's raining heavily now and that brings out some more covers. The covers were on before due to insufficient light and was heavily overcast. Since it's raining now we might have a big delay. Stay tuned for more updates.

The ball goes to the keeper who does not collect it. Seems like a drop but the replays show that there is no edge! Now, after 26 seconds, South Africa take the review but Hawk-Eye shows that the impact was well outside the off stump. The limit to decide for a review is 15 seconds and it's strange that the umpire allowed South Africa to take the review after 15 seconds. 325/7

LBW appeal against Broad. Looks not out but South Africa have taken the review!

Welcome everyone to the coverage of day 2 of the 1st Test between England and South Africa. Yesterday was a great day for the home side and they will look to continue scoring runs today. Things didn't go to South Africa's way as they wanted but they'll try to comeback today and will look to pick wickets as early as possible. Hopefully we'll have a good day's play.

Stumps, day 1. England are 267/3. Bell and Cook at the crease. A day which belongs to England for batting well and just lost 3 wickets. Alastair Cook is not out on 114 and Bell is at the crease along with him at 10*. Earlier Trott was out for 71 after making a big partnership of 170 with Cook. Kevin Pietersen was out to Kallis after scoring 42 runs. Morne Morkel picked up the previous two wickets of Trott and Andrew Strauss who got out for a duck in the first over of the day. No wickets for Steyn and Philander, who didn't bowl badly but the English batting was strong enough to play them well. Tomorrow England will try to extend their innings as long as they can whereas South Africa will try to bowl them out as early as possible. That's it from us for today, do join us tomorrow for the day 2 action.

It is quite sunny out today, the batsmen will try to take this advantage and hang on to bat through.

Welcome to the coverage of day 3 of the 1st Test. It has been a good contest so far where South Africa made a good comeback in the rain hit day yesterday. They were 86/1 at stumps, skipper Smith who's playing his 100th Test is at the crease on 37 along with Hashim Amla who's not out on 47. No big success for the English bowlers yesterday as they picked up just one wicket of Petersen who was out for a duck. The home side will try to come back hard and will look to pick a few early wickets in the first session. South Africa, on the other hand will try to bat as long as they can and post a good total. We hope to get a good day's game without any weather disturbance.

That's it from us then! Thanks a lot for tuning in and looking forward for your company tomorrow at 1000 GMT (1530 IST). Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

Handshakes all around, but since Cook's dismissal, it has been South Africa's day. They bowled out England to 385 and after losing Petersen early, Amla and Smith have done well. The deficit is now 299 and if we have a good weather tomorrow, the Proteas will look to consolidate.

Right then. A strong opening session for England after the early loss of Strauss in the very first over. Cook and Trott have batted well but the South Africans have not bowled well at all. They have been inconsistent and erratic and that too, under helpful conditions.

The news is play will resume at 5.55pm local time. There will be scheduled 27 overs in today's play.

Cricket South Africa tweets "Inspection due at 6.40pm SA time, 5.40pm in England."

Covers are coming off, the play will resume shortly.

Ayaz Memon tweets, "Uh oh, weather's getting worse. Further play btwn SA-Eng unlikely today not smart for rain gods to intrude in such an enthralling contest"

Bad news, the covers are on. The players have left the field. There's a bit of a drizzle, only the main covers are on as of yet. Wait, it's raining heavily now and that brings out some more covers. The covers were on before due to insufficient light and was heavily overcast. Since it's raining now we might have a big delay. Stay tuned for more updates.
