South Africa tour of England, 3rd ODI: England v South Africa at The Oval, Aug 31, 2012
England won by 4 wickets (with 12 balls remaining)
31 August 2012 - day/night match (50-over match)

Steyn to Bell, OUT, full and straight and gone! Steyn is bang on to Bell and a review won't save him ... He was hit low on the pad, trying to play across the line and it's a good job he didn't resort to DRS because that was hitting middle and leg

IR Bell lbw b Steyn 12 (8m 7b 3x4 0x6) SR: 171.42

England 14/1   AN Cook 0* (8b)   DW Steyn 1.3-0-1-1

Peterson to Cook, OUT, gone! That's what pressure does. Another short ball from Peterson and Cooks it straight down the throat of deep midwicket. Pretty ordinary from the England captain. South Africa rewarded for tight overs

AN Cook c Elgar b Peterson 20 (68m 47b 3x4 0x6) SR: 42.55

England 61/2   IJL Trott 27* (46b 2x4)   RJ Peterson 0.4-0-2-1

Morkel to Bopara, OUT, edged, he's given! Bopara reviews it. There was a sound. He reviewed straight away. No asking. Well, no mark on Hot Spot. There is certainly a sound. This will be interesting. Is there conclusive evidence to overrule? It stays out, Bopara isn't happy but under the DRS that is the correct decision. The third umpire, Taufel, said there was a clear sound and wasn't enough evidence to overrule.

RS Bopara c †de Villiers b Morkel 0 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 64/3   IJL Trott 30* (49b 2x4)   M Morkel 6-1-18-1

Peterson to Morgan, OUT, slog-sweeps across the line and skied high into the air, Peterson steadies himself underneath it to complete the catch! Though he then let the ball slip out of his hand as he went to throw it back into the air in celebration, causing Morgan to linger ... but after a brief consultation between the umpires, he is rightly told to be on his way

EJG Morgan c & b Peterson 73 (89m 67b 7x4 2x6) SR: 108.95

England 172/4   IJL Trott 61* (101b 2x4)   RJ Peterson 6.5-0-27-2

Peterson to Trott, OUT, that's some poor cricket from England...Trott worked a full ball to mid-on and the throw to de Villiers is good enough to catch Kieswetter well short despite a dive

C Kieswetter run out 14 (16m 18b 0x4 1x6) SR: 77.77

England 189/5   IJL Trott 64* (108b 2x4)   RJ Peterson 9-0-36-2

Parnell to Trott, OUT, he won't see England home. Feels for a ball outside off going across him and gets a thin edge to de Villiers.

IJL Trott c †de Villiers b Parnell 71 (200m 125b 2x4 0x6) SR: 56.80

England 207/6   SR Patel 9* (13b 1x4)   WD Parnell 9.5-1-23-1
