NatWest Series [South Africa in England] - 3rd ODI

England v South Africa

England won by 4 wickets (with 12 balls remaining)

8.4

Anderson to Smith, OUT, advances and gone, bowled! Looks like Anderson rolled his fingers over the ball, again Smith's impatience got the better of him and he missed tried to pull through the on side, the ball flipping the leg bail off on its way through

GC Smith b Anderson 18 (37m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 72.00

South Africa 50/1   HM Amla 31* (27b 5x4)   JM Anderson 4.4-0-28-1

16.1

Dernbach to Amla, OUT, gone! He's got Amla. Something that England have found hard to do this summer. Was a full delivery which nipped back into Amla as he went for a drive and it takes an inside edge into leg stump

HM Amla b Dernbach 43 (68m 51b 5x4 0x6) SR: 84.31

South Africa 73/2   D Elgar 11* (21b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 2.1-0-7-1

25.2

Tredwell to de Villiers, OUT, gone! Trying to repeat the flicks over midwicket he played in the last over but this time gets the shot too straight down the ground which allows Ian Bell to steady himself under the catch

AB de Villiers c Bell b Tredwell 28 (34m 31b 3x4 0x6) SR: 90.32

South Africa 120/3   D Elgar 30* (45b 2x4)   JC Tredwell 3.2-0-24-1

26.2

Bopara to du Plessis, OUT, gone! Du Plessis went too far across his stumps and loses his leg stump. He went down the pitch and outside off, the ball was angling towards the leg side and du Plessis missed his flick.

F du Plessis b Bopara 1 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

South Africa 122/4   D Elgar 31* (47b 2x4)   RS Bopara 6.2-0-18-1

30.5

Dernbach to Elgar, OUT, bowled him, a slow legcutter! That's a corker of a delivery from Dernbach and it's his variations that have done for Elgar! The ball came out the back of the hand, pitched on a length and came back in to hit the top of off as Elgar played around it, foxed by the lack of pace and now back in the chicken coop himself

D Elgar b Dernbach 42 (88m 61b 2x4 0x6) SR: 68.85

South Africa 141/5   JP Duminy 8* (13b)   JW Dernbach 4.5-0-16-2

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   JP Duminy 9* (17b)   JW Dernbach 5.5-0-28-3

41.2

Tredwell to Duminy, OUT, strikes this time, though. Big wicket. Duminy comes down the pitch and tries to clear the straight boundary but gets it higher rather than longer and Ian Bell settles under his second catch, this time at long-off, although it didn't go in cleanly

JP Duminy c Bell b Tredwell 33 (61m 46b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.73

South Africa 195/7   RJ Peterson 15* (22b)   JC Tredwell 8.2-0-46-2

44.3

Anderson to Steyn, OUT, another one goes...a good delivery from Anderson. Full on off stump, the ball holds its line, and Steyn played all around it. Jimmy will have enjoyed that.

DW Steyn b Anderson 1 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

South Africa 203/8   RJ Peterson 22* (34b 1x4)   JM Anderson 8.3-0-43-2

46.3

Anderson to Morkel, OUT, cleaned up! Another for Anderson. Came into Morkel from round the wicket and scooted between bat and pad to take middle and off stump

M Morkel b Anderson 7 (8m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

South Africa 211/9   RJ Peterson 23* (35b 1x4)   JM Anderson 9.3-0-44-3

46.4

Anderson to Tsotsobe, OUT, given lbw! Tsotsobe uses the review that's left. May as well. Was trapped on the back foot. Maybe going over? He's not hit it. Just clipping the top of leg stump so that will stay on the field.

LL Tsotsobe lbw b Anderson 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 211/10   RJ Peterson 23* (35b 1x4)   JM Anderson 9.4-0-44-4
