England 19/0   AN Cook 12* (13b 3x4)   DW Steyn 2-0-14-0

Peterson to Bell, FOUR, too short from Peterson, Bell goes deep in the crease and cuts late, it's briefly in the air but wide of slip and scoots away off the outfield

England 23/0   IR Bell 10* (9b 2x4)   RJ Peterson 1.4-0-9-0

Morkel to Bairstow, FOUR, pitched up on the stump and whipped through midwicket ... that was the shot Bairstow was aiming for when Morkel bowled him on 95 at Lord's

England 30/2   JM Bairstow 4* (4b 1x4)   M Morkel 0.2-0-6-0

Morkel to Bairstow, FOUR, short but too much width here and Bairstow hits in front of square, almost a tennis swing on the back foot and the ball races away

Parnell to Cook, FOUR, width again from Parnell and Cook slashes like Freddy Krueger through backward point for another boundary

Peterson to Bairstow, FOUR, leg stump and this time the gap is found on the sweep, nicely played between square leg and the 45

England 69/2   JM Bairstow 23* (42b 3x4)   RJ Peterson 3-0-15-1

Morkel to Bairstow, FOUR, short and pulled for four, seemed to take the bottom hand off the bat after playing it but it was timed to perfection and finds the gap behind square

England 79/2   JM Bairstow 29* (51b 4x4)   M Morkel 4.5-0-24-0

Parnell to Cook, FOUR, just outside off, it was cut off a genuine edge and runs where fourth slip would have been down to the fine third man rope

England 86/4   AN Cook 41* (55b 6x4)   WD Parnell 3.2-0-15-0

Parnell to Kieswetter, FOUR, glorious this, full outside off and lavishly driven past extra cover, everything perfect about that

du Plessis to Patel, FOUR, dragged down outside off and cracked past point, gets it to the fence

England 115/5   SR Patel 6* (6b 1x4)   F du Plessis 1.2-0-6-1

Elgar to Kieswetter, FOUR, short ball, sits up nicely and Kieswetter steps back to cream and short-arm jab through midwicket for his second boundary

England 149/6   CR Woakes 9* (17b 1x4)   M Morkel 6-0-33-1

Parnell to Woakes, FOUR, another streaky bacon four for Woakes, he had a real go at a short ball outside off, thick-edging over Smith at first slip

England 154/6   CR Woakes 13* (20b 2x4)   WD Parnell 7.4-0-36-0

Morkel to Woakes, FOUR, short and at the man, Woakes plays this very well, flicking it off the hips down to the vacant long leg boundary

England 164/7   CR Woakes 21* (28b 3x4)   M Morkel 7.4-0-40-2
