@ Tea on Day 1


England 187-1


Strauss 107*, Key 57*


Significant action in the session;

Boje drops a differcult chance off his own bowling when Key was on 39. In the same over Strauss survived a good LBW appeal.

Key went to 50, Strauss went to 100, his 5th in 11 tests and his 3rd against South Africa.
