I supposed that Black intended 3. d4 Bg7.
I can't help but be reminded of Kasparov's "Chess is not skittles" (regarding 1. c4 g5).

If White plays passively in the English, Black can seize the initiative on move 2: Here is game I played against Houdini 3 on the Black side of the English:

1.c4 c5 2.g3 g5! 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.d3 h6 5.Bg2 Bg7 6.Bd2? f5! 7.Qa4 Nf6 8.Rb1 e6 9.a3 Ke7 10.b4 cxb4 11.axb4 Ne5 12.Qa3 Kf7 =/+
