The Olympics are alright and that, but the big news is that the second Test has started at Headingley. Swann left out, four seamers picked - bold move, could well be a good one. 'Little' James Taylor gets a debut. England bowl first despite the fact that today looks the driest day of the match. Questionable.
South Africa 41/0 at drinks. England bowling pretty well, Cook drops an absolute sitter at second slip. Infuriatingly, Finn has Smith caught at first slip but gets called dead ball by the umpire because his knee hit the stump in his bowling action, despite not being dead-balled the previous three times it happened. Also questionable.
Got tickets for Sunday. Looks damp.
