LONDON (AFP) - England were 16 for two in their second innings, needing a further 330 runs to reach their victory target of 346, at stumps on the fourth day of the third Test against South Africa at Lord's on Sunday.

Jonathan Trott was six not out and Ian Bell four not out.

The most England have ever made in the fourth innings to win a Test is the 332 for seven they posted against Australia at Melbourne back in 1928/29.

South Africa lead the three-match series 1-0 and only need to avoid defeat to replace England as the world's top-ranked Test side.
