View dismissal GC Smith* c †Prior b Broad 0 7 7 0 0 0.00
1.3 my goodness me, what a stunning moment for England, and what a breakthrough. Nothing much of a delivery, swinging gently down the leg side, but Smith tries to help it down to fine leg, doesn't get enough bat on it, and Matt Prior leaps like a rampant salmon to snaffle the first wicket of the series! 1/1
View dismissal AG Prince c Collingwood b Swann 45 155 94 6 0 47.87
34.2 wow, he's done it again! Swann has a penchant for early breakthroughs, and that's a cracker. Perfect length, sharp and unexpected turn, and Paul Collingwood coolly accepts his second catch of the innings! 93/3
View dismissal HM Amla c Collingwood b Onions 19 88 67 2 0 28.35
20.5 Got him this time! Onions deserved that. Full and Amla is drawn into a firm drive but edges to Collingwood. Good low catch there going to his right 51/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Collingwood b Anderson 120 306 225 16 1 53.33
96.6 my goodness me, it's a breakthrough! I did not see that coming. Kallis was looking utterly serene, but Anderson found a good length with a hint of extra bounce and a fraction of away movement, and Collingwood at second slip scooped another fine low catch 283/5
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Cook b Swann 32 82 66 5 0 48.48
54.3 gone this time! Thrown up and gets the inside edge from de Villiers's defensive stroke and goes straight to Cook at short leg. Bit of turn and extra bounce, classic offspinner's delivery. England really needed that. 159/4
View dismissal JP Duminy c Collingwood b Swann 56 218 150 6 1 37.33
108.5 Swann does it again! He has a real habit of getting a wicket early in his spell. Nicely flighted, finds a little turn and Duminy, leaning forward with a slightly open face, guides it to Collingwood at slip who makes no mistake 316/6
View dismissal MV Boucher c Cook b Swann 49 156 100 6 0 49.00
134.1 Swann does the trick again. Regulation offspinners wicket. Pitched outside off stump, spun back sharply, caught the inside edge, and it went straight to Cook, who snaffles it gleefully. Unlucky for Boucher to fall one run short of 50 and England continue to stay just in reach of South Africa 377/8
View dismissal M Morkel c †Prior b Onions 13 53 48 2 0 27.08
121.5 he's gone this time! Still feeling the effects of that blow, perhaps, as that was a bit of a flat-footed waft, and a thin low snick to the keeper, who gathers well 341/7
View dismissal PL Harris b Onions 38 117 89 4 0 42.69
150.5 oh, and that is out. Floated up outside off stump, Harris wafted, stood firmly in his crease, and inside edged in on to the base of the stumps. 414/9
View dismissal F de Wet lbw b Swann 20 78 67 3 0 29.85
153.2 review. Gets well back and is struck plumb in front. de Wet calls for a review, since South Africa have one in the bank, but third umpire confirms the decision. Swann has five, the third time he's managed that in his career. 418/10

28.6 got him! Excellent length again, and this time it keeps low once more. Strauss was in position but the ball skimmed through at shin height, and demolished the off stump! 98/2
View dismissal AN Cook c †Boucher b de Wet 15 26 17 3 0 88.23
5.4 there it is! Friedel de Wet has his maiden Test wicket, as Cook pushes at an off-stump delivery, and feathers the thinnest of edges through to Boucher 25/1
View dismissal IJL Trott b Harris 28 170 117 3 0 23.93
41.5 oh dear. Trott runs down at Harris and swipes wildly, beaten on the inside edge, looking for turn that wasn't there. 119/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Morkel 40 113 79 3 1 50.63
54.5 that's the breakthrough, and it's a huge scalp! Back on that probing length from Morkel, and just a hint of nip off the seam. Pietersen couldn't resist any longer, climbed into an expansive drive, and inside-edged onto his off stump! 168/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Kallis b Harris 50 133 88 5 1 56.81
71.6 lovely bowling defeats Collingwood! Flighted, it gripped and actually spun, enough to get the outside edge of Collingwood's defensive shot and it went low to Kallis who makes no mistake 221/7
View dismissal IR Bell b Harris 5 23 16 0 0 31.25
59.5 oh my goodness me, that is hideous! Shades of Adam Hollioake in 1997 as Bell shoulders arms to a straight delivery, and has all three stumps demolished! 189/5
View dismissal MJ Prior c de Wet b Harris 4 44 34 0 0 11.76
69.6 oh dear oh dear. Prior goes for an expansive sweep, and Harris finds some extra bounce, it catches the top edge and loops down to de Wet, the only man deep on the leg side, at fine leg. England in all sorts of trouble here and Harris has been the destroyer. 211/6
View dismissal SCJ Broad lbw b Duminy 17 34 34 2 0 50.00
78.5 oh close lbw appeal. Good length ball beat the bat and rapped Broad on the pads. Finally they ask for a review and it looks very close on replay, and he's given. 242/8
View dismissal GP Swann c Smith b Harris 85 139 81 10 2 104.93
103.6 Ah, it's all over now. Swann attempts a big sweep but picks out deep square leg to give Harris a well-deserved fifth wicket. Swann shakes Harris's hand, in a gesture of finger-spinning solidarity. 356/10
View dismissal JM Anderson c Morkel b Ntini 29 104 78 4 1 37.17
102.1 well, what's happened here? Anderson miscued an attempted forcing shot off the back foot, and it's looped to cover. For some reason there is a referral, but the ball carried easily to a diving Morkel. Anderson can go and rest his hand now, but that has been a remarkable partnership. 348/9

  South Africa 2nd innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AG Prince b Anderson 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
0.6 gone! Fullish on off stump, shaping back at Prince, and it catches the inside edge on to off stump. Great start for England 2/1
View dismissal GC Smith* b Onions 12 53 36 1 0 33.33
11.2 that is a severely important wicket for England, and once again, it's that low bounce that does the trick. Onions uses the over-the-wicket line to drag Smith forward, but the ball doesn't get up, and burrows into his middle-and-off stumps via a thin inside-edge! 34/3
View dismissal PL Harris b Anderson 11 26 17 2 0 64.70
6.5 got him! Not sure how because that was angling safely down the leg side, but his leg stump has been knocked back. In fact, it's clipped the underside of his thighpad, and deflected improbably back into his wicket. 20/2
View dismissal HM Amla b Anderson 100 315 213 10 0 46.94
81.5 there's the shooter! And that will not please Andrew Strauss in the slightest, given that he - in all likelihood - will have to bat before the day is done. There's no way to combat that, as the off stump is demolished at bootlace height. The hard new ball hits a crack, skids through, and a fine innings is over 266/7
View dismissal JH Kallis c Cook b Broad 4 45 32 0 0 12.50
21.3 big moment in this game! Broad digs one in, Kallis rocks back and tries to break the shackles with an expansive pull shot, but it comes off the top edge and flies down to Alastair Cook at deep square-leg, who takes a well judged catch. 46/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Bell b Broad 64 136 101 6 1 63.36
55.4 and that's gone! Broad was probing away, trying to contrive something, and a fullish delivery stops on the wicket a touch, and de Villiers drives a fraction in the air, where Bell takes an excellent diving catch at short extra cover. 165/5
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Anderson 11 33 27 2 0 40.74
63.5 big appeal, given out, and it's gone to review. Swinging back a fraction into Duminy and strikes him in front, it looks very close. Replays show it clipping the top of the stumps. Duminy thought he could have inside-edged it, but there is no clear evidence to suggest he did. Third umpire rules in favour of England, and Duminy has gone. 191/6

1.2 got him! Huge wicket for South Africa and a massive moment in this Test. Morkel from around the wicket, lands one just back of a length, and it leaves Strauss slightly, catching a faint edge on the way through an ecstatic Boucher. 5/1
View dismissal AN Cook c Smith b Harris 12 78 56 1 0 21.42
18.2 there's the breakthrough! Cook tries to get outside off and work the ball to leg, but there's a bit of turn to take the glove, lob off the pad flap, and into the stretching right hand of Graeme Smith at leg slip! 27/3
View dismissal JM Anderson c †Boucher b de Wet 10 28 23 2 0 43.47
8.1 de Wet strikes! A short ball, outside leg stump, seemingly innocuous. But it climbs into the glove as Anderson attempts a leg-glance, and Boucher claims a simple strangle! 16/2
View dismissal IJL Trott c de Villiers b de Wet 69 316 212 7 0 32.54
81.4 stunner! Great catch from AB de Villiers, a shortish ball leapt off a length and flew off the shoulder of Trott's bat to third slip, where de Villiers dived back and to his left, to claim a brilliant one-handed catch. 205/5
View dismissal KP Pietersen run out (de Wet) 81 191 143 11 0 56.64
61.5 from de Wet, that is an extraordinary misjudgment from Pietersen! A tap into the covers, a head-down sprint to the other end, and Trott just stands there in bemusement. He never took so much as a step out of his crease! 172/4
