Despite an unexpectedly dramatic final day, the second Test between England and South Africa at Headingley has ended in a draw.

South Africa had declared on 258-9 on Monday, setting England a target of 253 to win from 39 overs, but the hosts were 130-4 when the teams shook hands on the draw.

England opened with Kevin Pietersen, but he fell to Vernon Philander for 12 and despite 46 from Alastair Cook the batsmen were unable to keep up with the run-rate and in the end had to block.

JP Duminy had South Africa’s best figures with 1-10.

The tourists had earlier collapsed from 120-0, after Jacques Rudolph and Graeme Smith had hit 69 and 52, respectively, as Stuart Broad took 5-69 and Kevin Pietersen 3-52.
