  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JJ Roy run out (Morkel/†de Kock) 20 23 23 4 0 86.95
5.5 from Rabada, slashed over gully, in the air but it bounces wide of third man, Roy wants a second... Morkel gets the return in hard and flat over the stumps, de Kock breaks the bails smartly and then throws for the non-striker's end as well, seemingly doubting whether he had managed to beat Roy. But a quick check upstairs confirms Roy's bat was millimetresshort! He's run himself out! 36/1
View dismissal AD Hales c Morkel b Rabada 65 112 73 8 0 89.04
26.2 top edge, and gone! A short ball from Rabada, pulled aggressively but not middled, and that spiralled high down to Morkel on the edge of the rope. Another fine innings from a man who is back to form for England 161/2
View dismissal JE Root run out (Wiese/†de Kock) 125 165 113 10 5 110.61
42.6 from Wiese, oh no, Root and Stokes are standing together mid-pitch... This has not gone to plan. Root spanked a drive into the stumps at the non-striker's end, set off, stuttered, called again as the ball ricocheted to short midwicket - Stokes then started and stopped as Wiese hared after it and de Kock has a simple job to complete the run-out 269/5
View dismissal JC Buttler c Duminy b Rabada 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
26.5 turned off the hip, and Buttler falls first ball! A brilliant take by Duminy at leg gully, scooped low as it flew hard 162/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c Amla b Wiese 8 33 24 0 0 33.33
33.6 81.1 mph, flat-footed slap, and Morgan's scratchy innings is brought to a merciful end. Never remotely adjusted to the changing pace of the wicket, a miscued hoick to Amla at short midwicket 187/4
View dismissal BA Stokes c Behardien b Abbott 53 58 37 5 2 143.24
47.2 leans back and attempts to smack the ball into Pretoria... but he picks out long-off! A lively intervention from Stokes, keeping England's legs whirring, but they are beginning to look like Wile E Coyote after run over a cliff edge 291/7
View dismissal MM Ali c Amla b Morkel 3 11 9 0 0 33.33
45.6 80.7 mph, on the hip and Moeen flicks it sweetly... but straight towards deep backward square leg, where Amla dives to take an excellent tumbling catch! Morkel gets a wicket with his final delivery and England are dragged ever closer to earth 284/6
View dismissal CJ Jordan c Duminy b Abbott 3 8 5 0 0 60.00
47.3 68.5 mph, two in two, Jordan sends it down the throat of deep extra cover! Canny slower ball from Abbott, anticipating the big shot and Jordan lemming-ed it straight to the man on the fence. England could get bowled out here 291/8

View dismissal Q de Kock c Root b Rashid 135 147 117 16 4 115.38

View dismissal HM Amla c †Buttler b Jordan 127 187 130 13 2 97.69
45.5 86.8 mph, outside off, and snicked through to the keeper! Jordan finally finds a line that doesn't get walloped or wided, and that's the end of a sensational match-winning innings 311/3

37.6 57.4 mph, reverse sweep, and bowled! Well, that was short and to the point ... 249/2
