Pieterson as a captain leads from the front for England, Scores a fine Century against SA

England 295-3 v South Africa (evening session, day one)

Kevin Pietersen fired a masterful century to revive England on the opening day of the series at Lord's. In his first Test against South Africa, Pietersen struck 13 fours and a six to record his 13th Test century. He shared a vital century stand with Ian Bell, who struck an attractive fifty, after three wickets had fallen for three runs in 13 balls after lunch. Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook gave England a fine start with a stand of 114 after the tourists opted to bowl.
