Ashwell Prince's second hundred in as many matches against England helped give South Africa a significant first innings lead in the second Test at Headingley here Saturday.

The Proteas, when bad light forced an early close on the second day, were 322 for four in reply to England's 203, a lead of 119.

Prince was 134 not out, following his 101 in the first innings of the drawn first Test at Lord's, and AB de Villiers 70 not out after South Africa had lost just one wicket in the day's play

Their unbroken fifth-wicket stand was worth 179 in 61 overs after they'd come together at 143 for four.

South Africa vice-captain Prince has now turned nine of his 17 Test fifties into hundreds and at stumps he was closing in on his Test-best score of 139 not out against Zimbabwe at Centurion in 2005, his first hundred at this level.
