England on the ropes as they begin long trek towards target of 474
England 205 and 1 for 0 need another 473 runs to beat South Africa 335 and 343 for 9 dec (Amla 87, Elgar 80, du Plessis 63, Moeen 4-78). South Africa squeezed the pulp from England's attack in the second Investec Test with a resolution that has not only set them up for victory at Trent Bridge, so leveling the series at 1-1, but potentially left a few psychological marks for the matches ahead at The Oval and Old Trafford. England's openers clung on for four overs at the end of an exhausting third day - and even that required Alastair Cook's successful review, first ball, to overturn an lbw decision for Morne Morkel.
Radical overhaul for QeA Trophy on the cards
Pakistan's domestic structure is no stranger to change but next season might see one of the most radical changes imposed on the countries oldest, most prestigious first-class tournament, and the Quaid-e-Azam trophy. Until now, the PCB selectors, along with regional coaches, choose 20-man squads of a regional team. That squad is primarily composed of players who have performed at the inter-district levels below first-class cricket. Historically, players come through the first-class circuit after playing senior inter-district cricket. High-performing players move to the departments, who offer them employment and an opportunity to play cricket. The changes have to be formally approved by the Board of Governors (BoG), who will meet on July 28.
