Hello and welcome to our Live coverage of Day 3 of the second Test between England and South Africa at Trent Bridge. South Africa are right on top after a brilliant second day. They gained a lead of 130 runs and the pair of Dean Elgar and Hashim Amla have been solid to stretch it past the 200-run mark. The Proteas will aim to extend it beyond the reach of England if possible. Will they be able to do it though?
The deck has enough assistance for the Pacers but the England bowlers have not been able to make inroads yet. They were gifted wickets in the first innings but they can't expect the Proteas batsmen to repeat their mistakes. Batting will only get difficult on a deteriorating pitch and Joe Root will want his bowlers to trigger a collapse to keep the target in check. It is a massive test of his captaincy and calibre. Let's see what Day 3 has in store for us. Catch all the latest updates here.
