Match drawn
Played at Lord's, London
10,11,12,13,14 July 2008 (5-day match)
  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss lbw b Morkel 44 178 131 6 0 33.58
41.5 big shout by Morkel but that's outside the line - or is it? Gone! Strauss has been given lbw! Well, replays show that Morkel might have been a bit lucky there, but perhaps that's what South Africa's pacemen need to click them into gear 114/1
View dismissal AN Cook c de Villiers b Morkel 60 191 132 9 0 45.45
43.5 and that's a second for Morkel! He bangs it in short and Cook fails to cope with the pace and extra bounce of this one, taking his eyes off the ball and it clangs into him, kissing the handle of the bat and ballooning up in the air for de Villiers to walk in from the slips and take it 117/3
View dismissal MP Vaughan* b Steyn 2 6 3 0 0 66.66
42.6 what a ripper! Vaughan's a shaky starter and this did him in, pitching on a length, middle and off, straightening, and he plays all around it, losing his off stump 117/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c †Boucher b Morkel 152 281 181 20 1 83.97
107.1 and he's gone hooking! Morkel slides a short one down leg stump, Pietersen makes a mess of the shot, gloving the ball to Boucher and he walks off as South Africa regroup ... but what an innings, eh? Standing ovation as he walks off for 152 403/4
View dismissal IR Bell c & b Harris 199 496 336 20 1 59.22
156.2 good grief, he's well held on 199! Down he skips, trying to break the shackles, connecting well on the booming drive but its rather well intercepted by Harris himself, steadying and taking it to his right with both hands... Bell is shocked but has to go, well played 593/8
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Amla b Harris 7 15 13 1 0 53.84
110.5 and he's gone, with Amla taking a sharp low catch at forward short leg! Harris gets a wicket with a leg-side delivery that just goes on with the arm, the ball pops up as Collingwood plays a defensive, and Amla reacts quickly to hold the ball ... Billy Bowden lifts the crooked finger confidently ... lets see replays on that, Collingwood doesn't look pleased 413/5
View dismissal TR Ambrose c Smith b Morkel 4 12 7 0 0 57.14
113.3 gone! What a start for South Africa! Excellent line and length just outside the off stump, Ambrose came forward - rather tentatively feeling for it - the edge just carrying to Smith at first slip 422/6
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Harris 76 158 124 10 0 61.29
150.3 timber! Broad goes for a meaty whip across the line, rather ugly, looking to work a full and flat delivery to midwicket but the ball turns ever so slightly and disturbs the furniture 574/7

  South Africa 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* c Bell b Anderson 8 23 21 1 0 38.09
5.2 extra bounce does Smith in and Anderson has the breakthrough! This one does not stay low, instead sitting up more than Smith expected, pitching on middle and leg, and it takes the shoulder of his bat as he presses forward, ballooning up and Bell at gully makes no mistakes 13/1
View dismissal ND McKenzie b Panesar 40 139 89 5 0 44.94
30.1 bowled em round the legs! Monty strikes by drifting one down the leg side, spinning out of the rough, McKenzie gets across and doesn't get bat on it, and loses his leg stump 83/4
View dismissal HM Amla c †Ambrose b Broad 6 42 32 1 0 18.75
14.6 edged and taken! Amla can't hold back on pushing loosely at a full delivery, bat away from body, and there's a faint tickle through to Ambrose, much to Broad's cherub-faced delight! 28/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Strauss b Sidebottom 7 35 19 1 0 36.84
21.6 excellent catch, and Kallis is gone! A huge blow to South Africa. Sidebottom angled it across the batsman - perhaps Kallis thought it was going to come back in - and Strauss, at first slip, dived forward and to his right to take a smart and low catch 47/3
View dismissal AG Prince c †Ambrose b Sidebottom 101 295 183 13 1 55.19
90.5 got him this time. A rare loose from Prince, driving at a wider ball from Sidebottom, and Ambrose takes a simple catch 245/9
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Anderson b Panesar 42 128 119 5 0 35.29
62.6 what a catch by Anderson! Monty tossed it up and de Villiers skipped into a leg-side flick which appeared to be evading mid-on for four. Until, that is, Anderson flung himself high to his left to cling onto a superb two-handed grasp while airborne 161/5
View dismissal MV Boucher b Broad 4 16 11 0 0 36.36
67.1 bowled him first ball! Short of a length and cutting just a touch back into Boucher who tried to leave it - but he was far too late. A thick inside edge saw the ball hammer into his stumps 166/6
View dismissal M Morkel b Panesar 6 22 22 1 0 27.27
72.6 he's done him! Unlike the last ball, Morkel's defence is far from watertight and - with great spin back into him - he's bowled by a corker. Monty's done him like a kipper 191/7
View dismissal PL Harris c Anderson b Panesar 6 19 18 1 0 33.33
76.5 what a catch! Anderson's on top fielding form today, scrambling round from mid on and taking the ball low as he nearly dived forward, Harris just popping up softly as he came down the track and down some more and looked to drive over the top of mid-on 203/8
View dismissal DW Steyn c Sidebottom b Pietersen 19 81 46 2 0 41.30
93.3 and Pietersen's done it, tossing this up outside off, and Steyn attempts to hit this into cow corner but can only sky it to Sidebottom at mid-off 247/10

View dismissal GC Smith* c Pietersen b Anderson 107 340 207 11 0 51.69
81.1 got him! Short of a length, Smith goes for a pull but it wasn't short enough and hurried onto him. It skied up to backward point where Pietersen, running in from the deep, took an easy running catch 204/1
View dismissal ND McKenzie c †Ambrose b Anderson 138 553 447 16 0 30.87
133.6 finally England have a wicket, and the ball which gives them the breakthrough is terrible, Anderson bowls a short and wide one outside off stump, McKenzie chases without moving his feet and nicks it to Ambrose, Anderson is almost laughing at his luck 329/2

View dismissal JH Kallis b Sidebottom 13 56 52 2 0 25.00
147.5 bowled him!! Out of no where Sidebottom has produced a marvellous yorker, the ball began to slant across the right-hander from over the wicket before bending back in, Kallis couldn't dig it out and the ball crashed into the base of off stump 357/3
