44.1

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, wrong line, really off-line, sliding miles down the leg stump

44.2

Steyn to Pietersen, 1 run, oh ho ho ho .... pitches on middle, straightens, he turns it to midwicket and sets off, Ntini runs in and collects from mid-on, has a throw ... and misses! Pietersen was no where in the frame, for crying out loud!

England 122/3   KP Pietersen 1* (2b)
45.1

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, bouncer first ball, over the stumps, and Pietersen ducks under it

45.2

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, thats in the slot to be driven but Pietersen kneels into it with too much bottom hand and plays a mistimed shot to the man at cover

45.3

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, brave leave, getting right across and shouldering arms to one that swings in late, delivered from slightly wider of the crease as well

45.4

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, pins him back in his crease, defending towards midwicket that time

45.5

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, short outside off, gently shaping away, Pietersen nudges forward and then suddenly rears out of the way ... a bit of an exaggerated leave that one

45.6

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, fuller now, bringing out the loose drive, running it across to gully

England 128/3   KP Pietersen 1* (8b)
47.2

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, ouch! Thats taken him flush on the side of the helmet! Pietersen misjudges this one, ducking into it, turning his head away, and then cops it on the back of the head ... he falls back onto his backside and gets up, shaking his head ... he turned around when he realised he had misread the length ... looks groggy but he's good to go

47.3

Steyn to Pietersen, 1 run, and he's away confidently, getting up on his toes, shuffling across, and whipping this from just outside off stump out to deep square leg for one

England 139/3   KP Pietersen 2* (10b)
48.1

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, slow bouncer, Pietersen takes his eyes off it and ducks to let it go over

48.3

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, thats even wider, and moving away, but Pietersen leaves again

49.4

50.3

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, pitches full and straightens, Pietersen gets across and works it to leg

50.4

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, strives for the yorker and over-pitches, Pietersen once more looks to flick this across the line but only manages to get the toe end of his bat on ball, and so the ball dribbles to the man at midwicket

50.5

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, full and it shaves in, he now opts to shoulder arms, dangerously

50.6

Kallis to Pietersen, 3 runs, gets some width and steers it away from the body but into the gap, more running and recovering from Prince and thats three to Pietersen

England 154/3   KP Pietersen 7* (25b)

Ntini to Pietersen, 1 run, well played, just getting across and working the ball with the angle, whipping it past midwicket and running down the other end

England 169/3   KP Pietersen 15* (31b 1x4)

56.3

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen shuffles across to the off side, as is his wont, and tries to work it to leg

56.4

Ntini to Pietersen, 1 run, close! That was fearsomely close to bowling Pietersen. Short, and he chose to work it to leg on the front foot and got a thick inside edge which narrowly evaded his leg stump

England 170/3   KP Pietersen 16* (35b 1x4)
57.2

Morkel to Pietersen, 1 run, short, but it rises up on Pietersen at a nice height and he turns it off his hip. Good footwork, shuffling to the off side

57.5

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen defends this firmly back to the bowler

57.6

Morkel to Pietersen, FOUR, dismissive. Absolutely dismissive from Pietersen. Short, outside the off stump and he pulls it on the front foot through mid-on for four. Sheer quality

58.4

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, left alone outside off

58.5

Ntini to Pietersen, 4 byes, oh dear - a Boucher gaffe, though not helped by prodigious late-swing that bent into the wicketkeeper at the very last moment. Wow - he didn't have a hope in hell

58.6

Ntini to Pietersen, no run

England 183/3   KP Pietersen 21* (42b 2x4)

64.1

Harris to Pietersen, no run, fired into middle stump. Defended

64.2

Harris to Pietersen, no run, a touch shorter this time but Pietersen's right behind it, refusing to smack him into the street just yet

64.3

Harris to Pietersen, FOUR, there it is! He's gone for it, down the pitch and clobbering this just wide of mid-on! Hit with tremendous power, though, and it's four more

64.4

Harris to Pietersen, (no ball) SIX, bosh! That's much more like it, hitting through the line and smacking it over long-on

64.4

Harris to Pietersen, no run, better length this time, and Pietersen defends

65.2

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen drives, not timing it, and Steyn picks it up in his follow-through

65.3

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, no great pace from Steyn. Pietersen ignores this outside his off stump

65.5

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, left alone

65.6

69.3

Steyn to Pietersen, FOUR, too full and thats clipped superbly between midwicket and mid-on

Steyn to Pietersen, 1 wide, the response is a bouncer, miles away from the stumps and Boucher has plenty of leaping and pouching to do and the umpire signals wide for height

69.4

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, full, he drives this sluggishly off the front foot and Steyn easily fields

69.5

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, clever slower ball, fingers rolled across the seam, ball lands on a length and draws Pietersen forward and playing, beaten by the slowness of that one

73.2

Harris to Pietersen, 1 run, now he plays an impetuous swipe of a sweep, collecting from just around off stump and past short fine leg

England 263/3   KP Pietersen 80* (109b 9x4 1x6)
79.1

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, reaches out and drags this fuller one from outside off towards midwicket

79.2

Kallis to Pietersen, FOUR, thats really well played, a typical, wristy flick from outside off stump, and not to an entirely full delivery, and mid-on has no time to react, thats placement

79.3

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, thats full and driven elegantly, Kallis falls over and manages to stop the ball

79.4

80.2

Harris to Pietersen, 1 run, full and flat, on the toes, and clipped out to Prince at deep midwicket

Harris to Pietersen, no run, quicker follow-up delivery, Pietersen gets across and goes for a sweep, missing and he's hit on the front pad just outside the line of impact .. umpire reckoned he was marginally outside off stump and replays indicate as much

England 276/3   KP Pietersen 92* (117b 11x4 1x6)
82.1

Steyn to Pietersen, FOUR, oh thats so well played, just clipping it from in front of his pad - had he missed it was taking out leg stump - and sends it up the hill past midwicket, wow!

Steyn to Pietersen, 1 run, he's going for it in style, flashing a firm front-foot cut out to deep point

England 281/3   KP Pietersen 97* (119b 12x4 1x6)
83.6

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, always looking for the single, he shuffles across and works this from off stump but cannot get it past the fielder at midwicket, so he stays on 97

England 283/3   KP Pietersen 97* (120b 12x4 1x6)
84.2

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, early onto the front foot, punching a drive back to Steyn, who fields

England 285/3   KP Pietersen 98* (123b 12x4 1x6)
85.1

Morkel to Pietersen, FOUR, and all of Lord's rises to appreciate a fantastic hundred! Kevin Pietersen, take a bow!

85.2

Morkel to Pietersen, 1 run, gets forward and plays at one, loosely, french-cutting past leg stump

England 290/3   KP Pietersen 103* (125b 13x4 1x6)
86.1

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, thats an appeal! Steyn pitches it on a length and moves it in, the ball takes the side flap of Pietersen's front pad as he hops back to defend, they all ask the question and Bowden reckons it was going over the top of off stump

86.2

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, full and wider, and he leaves it alone that time

86.3

91.1

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, left alone outside off

91.2

Ntini to Pietersen, FOUR, fantastic stroke from Pietersen, flicking a length-ball from middle stump through midwicket for four. Elegance, poise and timing

91.3

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, wide of the off stump and ignored by Pietersen

91.4

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, left alone once more by Pietersen. A touch of swing for Ntini back into the right-hander, but wide enough (too wide, in fact) to be left alone

91.5

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, Ntini goes fuller this time, and Pietersen's eyes light up with a form on-drive to wide mid-on. But straight to the fielder

91.6

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, and he's beaten by a good one outside off, Pietersen nibbling at it. I can only remember him doing that once yesterday

England 317/3   KP Pietersen 108* (139b 14x4 1x6)
92.5

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, oh, a waste from Steyn - down the leg-side. That rather sums up South Africa's bowling

92.6

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, better delivery this time on the middle stump, and Pietersen's attempt to whip it through midwicket fails...as he finds mid-on

England 323/3   KP Pietersen 108* (141b 14x4 1x6)
94.1

England 330/3   KP Pietersen 111* (142b 14x4 1x6)
95.6

England 344/3   KP Pietersen 115* (143b 15x4 1x6)
96.3

Steyn to Pietersen, FOUR, smash! A half-volley outside off, Pietersen absolutely laces it through extra cover for the sixth boundary of the morning

96.4

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, ooh, a touch of over-excitement from Pietersen here! Outside off, a touch shorter and Pietersen tries to do a pick-up over midwicket ... but the ball crept low on him

96.5

Steyn to Pietersen, 5 wides, oh dear. Steyn cranks up the pace but loses his radar horribly, down the leg-side, and Boucher can only parry it further to fine leg for four

96.5

Steyn to Pietersen, 1 run, again short, Pietersen helps it around the corner

England 355/3   KP Pietersen 120* (146b 16x4 1x6)
97.1

Ntini to Pietersen, 1 run, too straight, Pietersen stands tall to whip it to deep midwicket whose feet are practically on the boundary rope

97.5

Ntini to Pietersen, 1 run, in the air! This is South Africa's chance, but Boucher can't quite get there! Oh, what a moment that would've been for South Africa. A short one from Ntini which rushes Pietersen for once, who gloves it attempting a pull, but Boucher can't quite reach it to his left in spite of a dive

England 358/3   KP Pietersen 122* (148b 16x4 1x6)
98.1

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen stands tall, not bothered in moving his feet, and carves this off the back foot to mid-off

98.2

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, short, wide of the off stump and ignored

98.3

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, ooh and this takes the thigh-pad. Half a shout by the South Africans

98.4

Steyn to Pietersen, FOUR, another short delivery, a half-tracker, and Pietersen absolutely clobbers it in front of square for four. He's clobbered it

98.5

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, well bowled! Good comeback, fuller and swinging back into Pietersen, it raps him on the pads but is sliding down leg

98.6

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, fielded! That's the sort of gazelle-like fielding we've not yet seen from South Africa as Pietersen whips this to leg, and de Villiers pulls off a fine save at short midwicket

England 362/3   KP Pietersen 126* (154b 17x4 1x6)
99.2

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, back of a length, Pietersen goes across to defend

99.3

Ntini to Pietersen, 1 run, a touch too straight and Pietersen turns this off his legs for a single

99.5

Ntini to Pietersen, 2 runs, on off stump, Pietersen whips it with magnificent timing - that could even be four. But no, Morkel saves it. Excellent, fighting work from him and a good relay with the bearded Amla

99.6

Ntini to Pietersen, FOUR, short. Rising on Pietersen. Pulled. Four. Enough said.

England 371/3   KP Pietersen 133* (158b 18x4 1x6)
100.3

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, dropped by Kallis in his follow-through! Those are the half-chances South Africa need. Pietersen smacked it hard but it flew through Kallis' hands

100.4

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, wide of the off stump and left alone

100.5

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, very wide of the crease. A teaser, but Pietersen will not be teased

100.6

Kallis to Pietersen, 1 run, outside off, Pietersen flicks it to leg and steals the strike from Bell!

England 373/3   KP Pietersen 134* (162b 18x4 1x6)
101.1

Ntini to Pietersen, FOUR, ooh, half a false shot from Pietersen, driving on the up and it takes a thick outside edge. Replays suggest Pietersen played it with soft hands, and when the luck's with you ... well, you know the rest

101.2

Ntini to Pietersen, no run, half a shout by Ntini as Pietersen's rapped on the pads, but the batsman is miles across to the off side

101.3

Ntini to Pietersen, 2 runs, cor, that's close! Pietersen again whips this from the off stump through midwicket. This is thrilling play

101.4
