NatWest Series [South Africa in England] - 5th ODI

England v South Africa

South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 93 balls remaining)

3.6

Peterson to Bell, OUT, sliding in with the arm and Bell is hit in front ... Dharmasena gives it but England review, which replays show was a poor decision, Bell played for turn that wasn't there and the ball went on past the bat, impact was inside the line and leg stump would have been rattled

IR Bell lbw b Peterson 10 (19m 11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

England 23/1   AN Cook 12* (13b 3x4)   RJ Peterson 2-0-9-1

4.3

Steyn to Bopara, OUT, and now he's gone, second ball edged behind! England are immediately two down and you have to wonder about the logic of promoting Bopara on his current form. He simply pushed indeterminately at a ball he could have left and feathered through to de Villiers, a type of dismissal we've seen a couple of times previously in the series

RS Bopara c †de Villiers b Steyn 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 24/2   AN Cook 13* (14b 3x4)   DW Steyn 2.3-0-15-1

18.6

Morkel to Bairstow, OUT, clipped into the leg side and caught at deep square leg. Bad way to go really, he improvised, going across the stumps to flick over the leg side, it was timed pretty well but he picked out the fielder with a little flick with perfection

JM Bairstow c Ontong b Morkel 29 (62m 52b 4x4 0x6) SR: 55.76

England 79/3   AN Cook 34* (50b 5x4)   M Morkel 5-0-24-1

19.5

Duminy to Morgan, OUT, oh another one gone! Tried to go over mid on and mistimed it straight to mid on, poor dismissal, Hashim Amla bags the simple catch as Morgan stepped down the wicket, trying to find the long on rope but got it off the outer half of the bat I think and slapped it straight to the fielder

EJG Morgan c Amla b Duminy 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 82/4   AN Cook 37* (53b 5x4)   JP Duminy 0.5-0-3-1

25.2

du Plessis to Cook, OUT, chipped back to the bowler and caught! Another very soft dismissal and now England in serious trouble, it was a low full toss that Cook went to punch back down the ground but spooned a low catch to the bowler who claimed it low, a sharp take and a bad way to go for another England batsman

AN Cook c & b du Plessis 51 (112m 72b 6x4 0x6) SR: 70.83

England 99/5   C Kieswetter 2* (14b)   F du Plessis 0.2-0-0-1

30.3

Steyn to Patel, OUT, slower bouncer and Patel has been duped, gloving through to the keeper! The ball sat up, hovered in front of the batsman's eyeline and he tried to fiddle it round the corner only to get a faint fist-bump through to de Villiers

SR Patel c †de Villiers b Steyn 9 (24m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

England 124/6   C Kieswetter 16* (34b 1x4)   DW Steyn 6.3-1-18-2

37.3

Morkel to Kieswetter, OUT, slogged and gone, straight up in the air and caught at mid-off! Kieswetter was maybe fooled by a slower ball there, went to drive down the ground and hold the pose but was left staring at the ground as the ball soared up and down into the safe hands of Amla

C Kieswetter c Amla b Morkel 33 (75m 53b 3x4 0x6) SR: 62.26

England 156/7   CR Woakes 15* (23b 2x4)   M Morkel 6.3-0-34-2

43.2

Peterson to Tredwell, OUT, nicely flighted this, Tredwell is done and gets bowled. No where near the pitch of the ball and swings across it to be bowled middle stump. Really well bowled from Peterson, tossed up and Tredwell was done, completely misread it

JC Tredwell b Peterson 6 (22m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.57

England 175/8   CR Woakes 28* (39b 3x4)   RJ Peterson 9.2-0-35-2

43.3

Peterson to Anderson, OUT, what on earth, first ball, straight up in the air and caught. Goodness me that is an awful shot, skied it straight up first ball an absolute shocker from Anderson, tried to find the pavilion to a ball that was again tossed up and floated nicely, two in two deceiving the batsman in the flight

JM Anderson c Morkel b Peterson 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 175/9   CR Woakes 28* (39b 3x4)   RJ Peterson 9.3-0-35-3

45.2

Parnell to Dernbach, OUT, caught behind and that ends a pretty poor effort from England. A short ball, Dernbach goes to pull and nicks behind, done for pace and a thin edge goes through to the keeper at shoulder height

JW Dernbach c †de Villiers b Parnell 2 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 182/10   CR Woakes 33* (44b 3x4)   WD Parnell 8.2-0-38-1
