Commentary (England innings)

A solid batting reply from England, particularly from Kevin Pietersen who was the main player who took them to this total of 425.

Later on Prior kept playing his shots, was getting boundaries and now England get a small lead of 6 runs. This will be crucial runs for England. The weather is not that good but South Africa will have a tough job ahead. Join us in a while for the South African batting.

Kevin Pietersen will be at striker's end. Morne Morkel to bowl.

The players are out in the middle. Smith will take the field, although his left knee is wrapped up. Jacques Kallis won't field because of lower back spasms.

It's been an excellent Test, both the teams have played some great cricket. Kevin Pietersen was all over the South Africans yesterday, he's playing wonderfully well and the deficit for England is now just 68 runs. The weather today again doesn't look promising, some heavy downpours expected. Pietersen will look to score a big double ton but the number one bowling attack will try to dismiss England as soon as possible.

Welcome everyone to the coverage of day 4 of the 2nd Test between England and South Africa at Headingley.

That ends a terrific day of cricket, do join us tomorrow as well for the day 4 action. Good bye. Take care.

It was Kevin Pietersen show in the last session and the South African bowlers were toiled away for many boundaries. England now are in a comfortable position and will look to get some good lead tomorrow. South African bowlers weren't able to stop Pietersen but will look to remove him as early as possible.

Stumps, day 3. A solid day for England today, batted through and now trailing by 68 runs. Scored 303 runs today and lost 5 wickets but made 168 runs in the last session itself which was of 42 overs. Kevin Pietersen is rock solid on 149 along with Prior who joined him few overs before stumps. Earlier, England got off to a cautious start but South Africa were getting wickets at regular intervals. The turning point of the day was the partnership between Pietersen and debutant Taylor who scored 34 runs in the 147-run stand.

Cricket South Africa tweeted, "Play will resume at 13h30 UK time. Tea will be taken at 16h00 with close of play scheduled for 19h00."

Well, early lunch has been taken. The covers are coming off as the rain has also stopped and the game will resume after the break. It was just a 12.2 over session. England started off cautiously but Cook departed after playing down the line. The South African bowlers were bowling at good length and didn't allow England to score many runs before rain played the spoilsport. Join us in a while for the second session.

Oh dear, it's raining heavily and the covers are on. It was cloudy since the start of the game today but it's raining pretty heavily now. Just 12.2 overs were bowled and we're having this rain interruption. Stay tuned.

The players are out in the middle. Cook and Strauss, the openers at the crease. Cook will be at the striker's end, Morkel to bowl.

It's still cloudy out there, South Africa should pick up a wicket or two early and will look to remove the openers who are looking comfortable.

The match is evenly poised at the moment, England are 48/0 and still trail by 371 runs. Yesterday was early stumps due to rains and the weather isn't that promising today as well. The home side will look to bat through and score as much as they can. South African bowlers will try to comeback hard and need to keep England at a low total. It will be another great day of cricket from both these teams probably.

Hello everyone to the coverage of day 3 of the second Test between England and South Africa at Headingley.

That's it from us today, do join us tomorrow for the day 3 action. Good bye. Take care.

Stumps, day 2. A solid day of cricket, South Africa will be in driver's seat at the moment as they scored 419 earlier. England have started off well and are 48/0. Petersen played an excellent knock of 182 and Duminy scored crucial runs in the end for the South Africans. Broad was the pick of the bowlers for England as he picked up 3 wickets. England will look to bat through tomorrow and post a good total. The South African bowlers didn't get any success today but they'll look to comeback hard tomorrow.

Day has been called off, it will be stumps. That's it for the day then, England are 48/0.

Oh dear, its raining now at Headingley. The covers are on. If the play doesn't resumes in 30 minutes, then it will be stumps.

Bad light stopped play! Don't think it will be for a long time, the umpires are taking continuous reading of the light. Still 22 overs left in the day. Stay tuned.

The umpires are having a chat regarding the light issue.

Commentary (South Africa innings)

Tea, day 2. South Africa did well and took the total past 400. Alviro Petersen played a magnificent 182. England bowlers were average yesterday but bounced back well. Duminy played a crucial knock in the end and helped South Africa to reach a good total. The Proteas scored important runs in the last few overs and England will need to bat well against the new ball. This pitch has something for the bowlers and the South Africans bowlers will look to make most of it. Join us in a while for the England batting.

Kevin Pietersen will be at striker's end. Morne Morkel to bowl.

The players are out in the middle. Smith will take the field, although his left knee is wrapped up. Jacques Kallis won't field because of lower back spasms.

It's been an excellent Test, both the teams have played some great cricket. Kevin Pietersen was all over the South Africans yesterday, he's playing wonderfully well and the deficit for England is now just 68 runs. The weather today again doesn't look promising, some heavy downpours expected. Pietersen will look to score a big double ton but the number one bowling attack will try to dismiss England as soon as possible.

Welcome everyone to the coverage of day 4 of the 2nd Test between England and South Africa at Headingley.

That ends a terrific day of cricket, do join us tomorrow as well for the day 4 action. Good bye. Take care.

It was Kevin Pietersen show in the last session and the South African bowlers were toiled away for many boundaries. England now are in a comfortable position and will look to get some good lead tomorrow. South African bowlers weren't able to stop Pietersen but will look to remove him as early as possible.

Stumps, day 3. A solid day for England today, batted through and now trailing by 68 runs. Scored 303 runs today and lost 5 wickets but made 168 runs in the last session itself which was of 42 overs. Kevin Pietersen is rock solid on 149 along with Prior who joined him few overs before stumps. Earlier, England got off to a cautious start but South Africa were getting wickets at regular intervals. The turning point of the day was the partnership between Pietersen and debutant Taylor who scored 34 runs in the 147-run stand.

Shane Warne tweets "England must use the 2nd new ball well in the first hour or trouble..."

Welcome everyone to the coverage of 2nd day of the second Test between England and South Africa at Headingley. South Africa batted well yesterday but England hit back hard and picked up few crucial wickets in the end. English bowlers will try to keep South Africa's score as low as possible. They have a job to do, need to prove why Strauss went with all pace attack. Petersen has batted well and will look to score big today. It should be another great day of cricket. 93 overs will be bowled today.

That's it from us today, do join us tomorrow for the day 2 action. Good bye.

Stumps, day 1. Fantastic day, both England and South Africa played some great cricket. Although the day will belong to South Africa for scoring 262/5 whereas the average first innings score at this venue is 203. The home side wouldn't go back that happily, they missed a few chances. The Proteas will be pretty happy with the score. Alviro Petersen is rock solid at 124 not out and has played well. South Africa lost the momentum, we'll see can England make utmost use of it?

The players are out in the middle. Cook and Strauss, the openers at the crease. Cook will be at the striker's end, Morkel to bowl.

It's still cloudy out there, South Africa should pick up a wicket or two early and will look to remove the openers who are looking comfortable.

The match is evenly poised at the moment, England are 48/0 and still trail by 371 runs. Yesterday was early stumps due to rains and the weather isn't that promising today as well. The home side will look to bat through and score as much as they can. South African bowlers will try to comeback hard and need to keep England at a low total. It will be another great day of cricket from both these teams probably.

Hello everyone to the coverage of day 3 of the second Test between England and South Africa at Headingley.

That's it from us today, do join us tomorrow for the day 3 action. Good bye. Take care.

Stumps, day 2. A solid day of cricket, South Africa will be in driver's seat at the moment as they scored 419 earlier. England have started off well and are 48/0. Petersen played an excellent knock of 182 and Duminy scored crucial runs in the end for the South Africans. Broad was the pick of the bowlers for England as he picked up 3 wickets. England will look to bat through tomorrow and post a good total. The South African bowlers didn't get any success today but they'll look to comeback hard tomorrow.

Day has been called off, it will be stumps. That's it for the day then, England are 48/0.

Oh dear, its raining now at Headingley. The covers are on. If the play doesn't resumes in 30 minutes, then it will be stumps.

Bad light stopped play! Don't think it will be for a long time, the umpires are taking continuous reading of the light. Still 22 overs left in the day. Stay tuned.

The umpires are having a chat regarding the light issue.
