32.1

Dernbach to Parnell, FOUR, pitched up, on the pads and Parnell sweetly times a drive wide of mid-on for four - that's the first boundary in almost nine overs

32.2

Dernbach to Parnell, no run, good response, back of a length and speared across, beats Parnell's prod outside off

32.3

Dernbach to Parnell, FOUR, another boundary this time, but chalk this one up to the bowler, who squares up Parnell with one that pitches on leg and leaves him, taking a thick edge to squirt through gully

32.4

Dernbach to Parnell, FOUR, another edge, this time through first slip! Good bowling from Dernbach, drawing the false stroke, but Kieswetter can't quite get there diving to his left

32.5

Dernbach to Parnell, OUT, got him this time, edged to the keeper! Three in three for Dernbach to Parnell, the edges got progressively thinner and this one ended up comfortably in Kieswetter's bread basket. Parnell fails to make the most of his lives and England have taken the box seat in this game

WD Parnell c †Kieswetter b Dernbach 13 (6m 8b 3x4 0x6) SR: 162.50

South Africa 155/6   WD Parnell 13 (8b 3x4)
