View dismissal JJ Roy c Amla b Rabada 4 4 5 1 0 80.00
0.5 got him, steered to slip! Amla holds on this time, low down as a thick edge lobbed off the bat... Another single-figure score for Roy, who was drawn forward by a demanding line, the ball nibbling away down the Lord's slope and sending England's tub-thumping opener back to the changing rooms with a whimper 4/1
View dismissal AD Hales c Amla b Rabada 1 22 2 0 0 50.00
4.1 84.9 mph, England continue to attack... and SA continue to capitalise! Pitched up in the channel, Hales drives and Amla this time tumbles to his left to snap up another catch. A second for Rabada and England are tottering like an MCC member after a day on the port. Somehow that was only Hales' second ball... One he'll quickly want to forget 15/4
View dismissal JE Root lbw b Parnell 2 6 5 0 0 40.00
1.5 83.8 mph, trapped in front! Parnell beats him past the inside edge, booming swing - and England are two down! Lovely shape on that delivery, which started outside off and curled back in as Root aimed a punch down the ground. No hesitation from Michael Gough and it looked pretty plumb 7/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c †de Kock b Parnell 8 10 13 1 0 61.53
3.6 82.5 mph, lovely bowling, Morgan gone! Parnell is enjoying the famously moribund juicy Lord's surface, curving the ball away and kissing the outside edge, giving a simple catch to de Kock. Morgan's brief sally is over and England are wheezing in North Weezy 15/3
View dismissal JM Bairstow st †de Kock b Maharaj 51 112 67 8 0 76.11
27.3 50.6 mph, and that's all over! Charges down the pitch outside leg stump, the ball grips just enough to spin past his outside edge as he tries to drive over the off side 134/8
View dismissal JC Buttler c du Plessis b Rabada 4 4 4 1 0 100.00
4.5 throws the bat, thick-edged to second... England are five down! Superb catch from Faf du Plessis, that went very quickly as Buttler attempted to thrash it through the covers. Not quite as quickly as England are subsiding, but still 20/5
View dismissal AU Rashid c du Plessis b Rabada 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
4.6 87.3 mph, edged and gone - THIS IS ABSURD!!! Rashid goes for a big booming drive from his first ball, du Plessis scoops it up low to his left this time... and Rabada is on a hat-trick! Perhaps England are trying to get their shocker out of the way before the Champions Trophy, but this is golden-era awful from a country that knows a fair bit about being rubbish at ODIs 20/6
View dismissal DJ Willey c Duminy b Parnell 26 62 39 3 0 66.66
19.1 86.6 mph, and that's the breakthrough! Willey goes for a drive on the up, wasn't full enough for the booming shot, can't keep the ball down and it's snaffled at cover 82/7
TS Roland-Jones not out 37 61 37 5 1 100.00
View dismissal JT Ball b Maharaj 7 13 9 1 0 77.77
29.5 49.3 mph, that's less good! Opts for the slog-sweep this time, it's a full delivery, he gets a bottom edge into his back leg which rebounds into the stumps 143/9
View dismissal ST Finn c de Villiers b Maharaj 3 8 5 0 0 60.00
31.1 47.6 mph, and that's a dolly to end things...Finn flicks this lazily to midwicket, a soft finish. Drifting into the pads and he couldn't keep the ball down 153/10

View dismissal HM Amla b Roland-Jones 55 60 54 11 0 101.85
14.6 83.8 mph, dragged on! A maiden scalp for TRJ. A shorter ball outside off, Amla went for the pull and gets a bottom edge into his stumps 95/1
View dismissal Q de Kock b Ball 34 64 39 4 0 87.17
15.3 84.9 mph, through him! A very full ball (by Ball) at off stump and it gets under de Kock's bat. He can't quite work out how he missed it. Seemed a little late on the shot, but it was an excellent delivery 95/2

View dismissal F du Plessis c †Buttler b Ball 5 11 7 1 0 71.42
17.6 83.1 mph, gone this time! Full outside off, du Plessis drives without moving his feet - much like England earlier - well away from his body and the edge carries low to Buttler 101/3
