  England innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal C Kieswetter lbw b Botha 25 28 24 3 1 104.16
6.1 and the first ball spins into the front pad and is given out lbw. Nice delivery first up, jags back and strikes Kieswetter in line with off stump, pretty plumb in front, Kieswetter played across it but got done by the turn 40/2
View dismissal AD Hales run out (Kallis) 11 15 6 2 0 183.33
3.4 Morkel to Kieswetter, dropped into the leg side, Hales came a long way down and was sent back, Kallis throws down the stumps and is run out, total waste for England but a good scalp for South Africa and sharp work, excellent work from Kallis, never a run there 27/1
View dismissal RS Bopara c Botha b Steyn 6 19 11 0 0 54.54
7.4 can you believe it, Bopara gone again caught at slip and it is exactly the same dismissal as Bopara's other dismissals against South Africa, pushing tentatively forward to a fullish ball just outside off without moving his feet and getting an edge behind the wicket 50/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan b Botha 10 17 11 1 0 90.90
10.2 bowled him, Morgan chops on! He tried to manufacture another busy shot, against the turn and it was a bit too close, the ball taking a chunk of bat and cannoning on to the wicket 66/4
View dismissal JM Bairstow c Botha b Morkel 15 24 17 1 0 88.23
13.4 gone, tries to go big but holes out to long-on! England are making a right horlicks of this, Bairstow trying to up the pace and punching a lofted drive limply to the man stationed out near the boundary 80/6
View dismissal JC Buttler b Peterson 6 8 9 0 0 66.66
12.3 bowled him, another one gone! Buttler beaten by the flight and turn, well down the wicket and all at sea, he pushed tamely as the ball span by and clattered into middle and off 76/5
View dismissal SR Patel c Kallis b Peterson 4 12 7 0 0 57.14
15.3 hits out and goes, caught in the deep by the diving Kallis. It was boom or bust and Patel was not going to be bailed out, trying to hoick over long-off, didn't get enough bat on it and Kallis ran in to dive full length, sliding along the turf and getting safely under a magnificent catch 85/7
SCJ Broad* not out 18 27 22 1 0 81.81

View dismissal RE Levi c Swann b Dernbach 8 6 7 2 0 114.28
1.4 well here's the breakthrough, a length ball outside off and Levi has chopped it to slip trying to cut away without moving his feet, didn't really got that hard at it, bit of a fiddle again and nicked off 9/1
JH Kallis not out 48 81 44 7 0 109.09
View dismissal F du Plessis lbw b Finn 4 4 3 0 0 133.33
2.4 full and plumb in front, lbw as du Plessis is trapped right in front trying to drive, it was another ball angled into the pads and this catches the bottom of the front pad of du Plessis and he also fails like Bopara, was going on to smash middle and leg stumps 14/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† c †Kieswetter b Dernbach 10 5 6 2 0 166.66
3.6 but now de Villiers edges to the keeper. He drove without moving his feet really and got a thin edge through to Kieswetter, a good length ball and de Villiers in unnecessarily trying to force it through the off side has perished, didn't need to do that really 29/3
