England vs South Africa Third Test 2008: Paul Collingwood Comes to Rescue

Before the start of today’s play, many people had a doubt England had any chance in the match. South Africa was in an advantage condition because of their impressive first Innings Lead. However, Kevin Pietersen and Paul Collingwood had other things in mind. They fought bravely and helped England to be in a good position after the third day. Kevin Pietersen was very unlucky to be out for 94 runs. However,

Paul Collingwood was eager to score a century and this century helped England a lot.

Times Online reported:

The lead is more than 200 now and the advantage lies with England, but the outcome is still too close to call, given that the pitch is playing superbly. Ten out of the past 11 first-class games have been drawn here, which suggests that the surface will not deteriorate. South Africa will be confident of chasing a large last innings score, but they will have to bat better than they bowled yesterday.

It was a day when the advantage ebbed and flowed. England amputated the South African tail in the first hour, ceding a lead of only 83, and then lost three wickets themselves overhauling this deficit. England’s batsmen again got in and got out without producing anything substantial.
