One area where South Africa need to show an improvement going ahead in the Test series is their opening partnership. Along the tour, Alviro Peterson and Graeme Smith have failed to provide strong opening stands, writes Telford Vice in the Business Day,

A steadier opening stand is among the few improvements SA could make going into the second Test against England at Headingley in Leeds on Thursday. But they will be loath to tamper with their juggernaut of a combination and it remains unclear who could fill what is not yet a vacancy.
