South Africa need seven more wickets on the final day’s play to win the third Test at Cape Town and level the 4-Test Series 1-1. England chasing an improbable target of 466 have lost the big wickets of Strauss and Pietersen before stumps. Their savious of recent times Paul Collingwood is yet to come out for batting.
The hosts declared their second innings at 447 for 7 with Graeme Smith finishing with 183 (from 273 balls with 25 fours). Anderson provided some joy for England taking three wickets today.
England’s second innings saw Strauss (45) and Cook (55) putting on a century stand but SA fought back towards the end of the day’s play. At Stumps on Day 4, Jonathan Trott on 24 is along with night watchman James Anderson who has survived 15 balls so far.
