England still believe they can win the second Investec Test and level the series against South Africa although those prospects were far from obvious after day two of a contest which is forecast to be interrupted significantly by rain.
Stuart Broad is optimistic that, as long as the hosts can replicate the determination and skill shown by Alviro Petersen (182) in the Proteas' 419, there may still be some room for manoeuvre.
After England had replied with 48 for no wicket in a final session shortened by bad light and then rain, Broad said: "It's pretty even, I think. Being none down for us was vital, and tomorrow the first hour will be huge, because we all have one job, and that's to bat as big and as long as we can."
