A day when England put themselves into a position where they cannot lose.

Apparently SA can't lose either so the draw must be nailed on.

Lovely weather too.

When Broad is on his game he is a good bowler,however like most young sportsmen he is inconsistent,(thats not intended as a criticism just an observation of young guys in sport) .... Swann is confident and full of self belief,the same way as Shane Warne was (no I'm, not comparing the two of them,a confidant sportsman is normally playing well)
