But that's it from me. My thanks to Monty and Gnasher for the commentary alongside myself from Headingley. Until Lord's, so long....



Plenty more action to come here on ESPNcricinfo. We. have a T20 between India and Sri Lanka tomorrow at 13.30 GMT so tune in for that and also log on for all the County Championship action, a new round with plenty of games starts tomorrow.



Unfortunately we can't bring you the presentation tonight because of the late finish, coverage isn't available to us. But, as ever, there will be plenty of reaction from both camps. Firdose Moonda will be mulling over South Africa's performance - on the brink of more history, they have maintained their unbeaten run away from home remember. And George Dobell will assess how England can win the third Test and maintain their No. 1 ranking. Already we have the blow by blow account of today's action by David Hopps.



So South Africa remain 1-0 up in the series and go to Lord's needing only a draw to secure the series and go to No. 1 in the world Test rankings. That match takes place in a couple of week's time, and we'll be there as ever to bring you all the coverage from August 16.



And there's the draw with Graeme Smith finally offering his hand. It was his declaration that set up a chase here this evening and England were never really in the chase but in the end did well to have a go to start with and then bat out solidly for the draw.
