South Africa tour of England, 2008 / Commentary

Basil D'Oliveira Trophy - 3rd Test

England v South Africa

South Africa won by 5 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

87.3

Sidebottom to Nel, no run, Sidebottom angles this across Nel who leaves it alone

87.4

Sidebottom to Nel, no run, a yelping burp of an appeal from Sidebottom before realising that Nel got the thickest and noisiest of inside edges

87.5

Sidebottom to Nel, no run, what a delivery! Swinging into Nel who tries to do a Pietersen and whip him over midwicket for 12. He misses. Sidebottom smiles patronisingly, and Nel laughs at his own inadequacy

87.6

Sidebottom to Nel, OUT, got him this time. A repeat of the previous ball but it was a touch fuller and Nel, tried to turn him to leg, but his middle and leg stumps are splayed with pleasing symmetry. That was a bit out

A Nel b Sidebottom 0 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 298/9   A Nel 0 (4b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
