  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JJ Roy b Rabada 8 19 16 1 0 50.00
4.1 93.1 mph, gone! Roy is simply beaten for pace by a full, fast, straight yorker. He was playing all around it from the moment it left the hand, aiming through midwicket and losing his off stump instead 12/1
View dismissal AD Hales c †de Kock b Pretorius 24 59 28 2 1 85.71
13.2 74.4 mph, the drop costs just those six runs, it turns out! Outside off, bounces more than Hales anticipates as he leans back to cut, and de Kock snaffles a well-judged edge. Hales' record of fifties against South Africa comes to an end 70/2
View dismissal JE Root run out (Pretorius) 39 50 41 6 0 95.12
15.5 Pretorius to Morgan, Uh-oh! Has Root been run out at the non-striker's end? A fierce straight drive from Morgan, appears to flick the bowler's fingers, and he's a dead duck if the replays prove a fingertip... which it does! A calamitous way to go. He was looking set for a big'un 80/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c †de Kock b Rabada 45 85 64 4 0 70.31
32.5 89.7 mph, taken this time! How South Africa needed that. Angled across outside off, Morgan goes for the cut and gets a top edge which just carries through low to de Kock. Neat gather 175/4
View dismissal BA Stokes c Miller b Maharaj 101 124 79 11 3 127.84
43.2 52.8 mph, gives himself room for a tonk over the off-side, but it comes off the toe as Maharaj holds his line outside off, and that's the end of a fine innings from Ben Stokes, easily pocketed in the deep 252/5
JC Buttler not out 65 81 53 7 0 122.64
View dismissal MM Ali c †de Kock b Phehlukwayo 33 32 19 5 0 173.68
49.6 60.0 mph, Another wipe, another top-edge, and a wicket to complete another crunching day's work from England's brutal top seven 330/6

View dismissal Q de Kock c †Buttler b Ali 98 144 103 11 0 95.14
35.6 50.3 mph, he's been given! He's tickled it behind for 98. What a moment. Bowled slower by Moeen, may just have gripped a touch, de Kock trying to open the face and run it towards third man but just gets a graze through to Buttler 211/4
View dismissal HM Amla c Morgan b Stokes 24 40 29 3 0 82.75
9.5 85.8 mph, and he's struck! Stokes is having a decent day. Full, wide, quite inviting for the batsman who drives it straight to cover. Amla had to reach for it a little and couldn't keep it down 56/1
View dismissal F du Plessis c †Buttler b Plunkett 16 26 20 2 0 80.00
16.1 83.0 mph, edged! Plunkett has done it again. In the channel outside off, du Plessis looking to guide it down to third man and gives a think nick to Buttler 93/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c †Buttler b Plunkett 52 60 50 6 0 104.00
32.3 85.4 mph, that's a brilliant piece of aggressive fast bowling! Short, sharp, following de Villiers as he limboed out of the way, but he left his gloves dangling, and Buttler did well to reach forward and scoop a teasing low chance inches from the turf! A huge moment in this match, and nay, series. While AB was in situ, anything was possible 189/3
DA Miller not out 71 80 51 5 2 139.21
View dismissal F Behardien c Ali b Plunkett 17 25 25 0 0 68.00
43.3 87.0 mph, finds mid-off! If we are honest, that might help South Africa. Tries to send a length ball over the in-field, comes off the bottom of the bat and Moeen snaffles the catch above his head moving to his left 266/5
CH Morris not out 35 38 22 3 2 159.09
