Ntini marks up his run up. Umpires conferring, they offer the light to the batsmen, who accept it, the players walk off the field. Bad light stops play. It is gloomy at the moment. All the lights are on. It is unlikely that there will be any more play.

The match is over. It is a draw. A batting paradise here, Fleming getting a double hundred, a wonderful knock, Franklin played well for his century. For South Africa, Amla and Prince got centuries, good knock from both of them. Good effort from Ntini to pick up 5 wickets for the match. The man of the match is Fleming for his double hundred.

South Africa lead the test series 1-0. They move on to Wanderers at Johannesburg for the third test starting on the 5th of May.

That's it from here. Thanks for being with us, this is your commentator Binoy George signing off. Please do join us for the 3rd Test. Until then it is bye from all of us here.
