Leeds, England: Stuart Broad called for a repeat of the spirit of Edgbaston 2011 to ensure England manage to overturn South Africa's command of the second Test and series, as their place at the top of the world rankings hangs by a thread.
South Africa, who need to win the three-match series to leapfrog England as the No. 1 Test team, scored 419 in their first innings, a total dominated by Alviro Petersen's Test best score of 182, amassed in 533 minutes; painful reading for Alastair Cook, who dropped Petersen on 29 when he failed to hang on to a simple slip chance on the first morning. In reply, England ended the second day of the Headingley Test on 48 for no loss when bad light stopped play with 22 overs left to be bowled.
The batting effort that Broad referred to will need to be reminiscent of the match when England bored India's bowlers into submission with an innings of 710 for seven declared. Cook scored a painstaking 294 on that occasion in 773 minutes. Unfortunately for England, though, there are some marked differences between the two games.
