Jonny Bairstow fell just short of his maiden Test hundred on the third morning of England's must-win Lord's battle against South Africa.
Bairstow (95), playing in this match only because England dropped Kevin Pietersen in controversial circumstances, resumed today on 72 after he and Ian Bell had dug the hosts out of trouble yesterday afternoon.
There was still work to do for England, though - especially after Bairstow got stuck in the 90s and was then bowled playing across the line at Morne Morkel (three for 72). On 266 for eight shortly before lunch, England were struggling to reach first-innings parity - or a precious lead - in this final Investec Test.
Only victory here will do, if they are to share the series and stop South Africa taking away their world number one Test status.
