ICC Champions Trophy - 1st semi final

England v South Africa

England won by 7 wickets (with 75 balls remaining)

Let's. Play. Ball!

10.25am: The teams are out and the anthems are wafting across Kennington. There's Gary Kirsten... Will this be his last game in charge of South Africa? "God Save The Queen" done with, James Anderson is tossing his medicine ball about.

10.20am: Looks like The Oval is filling up nicely, perhaps in hope of another Hashim Amla masterclass. Despite losing both London matches, South Africa drew the ODI series here last year, with the first match at the Ageas Bowl featuring a mind-bogglingly good 150 from Amla. And here's a tidbit from our stats editor, S Rajesh: "Amla averages 61.28 in the 8 ODI innings when SA have batted first v Eng, SR 91.08." No wonder Cook wants to get him early.

"I think the injury of Dale Steyn is exactly what Eng needed to tip the odds in their favour," says Jamshaid Arshad, lining up his pun excitedly. "No steyn, no gain"

And here's a pessimistic Wayne Marinovich: "As a Saffa living in the UK, this one I have been waiting for. Advantage to England with the low cloud and Kleinveldt playing...might as well put 25 on the board to start.."

10.10am: The pitch looks the colour of porridge oats and there is a fluffy white blanket of cloud above the ground. South Africa chose to bat first in a day-night match here last year and went on to lose by five wickets; last week, England failed to defend 293 on the same ground. Anyway...

"The time is now," declares Michael. "Time for the next crop of Proteas to claim their place in SA cricket history. England are looking so balanced right now. Should be a cracker of a match."

"No, we commenters have stretching exercises for our fingers and icepacks on standby. I assume you commentators have that as part of OHS policy, right?" You think anyone cares about our health and safety Vansh D?

Amanda Walker, frankly, is asking a lot: "We need England to exude confidence. Let's be positive from the off and hope for a match that will set the tone for the rest of the summer. Just love these contests!"

10am: England have won the toss and will bowl, Alastair Cook hoping the humidity will aid swing and looking for some early wickets. Cook confirms that Swann and Bresnan are not in the side; Tredwell and Finn coming in. AB de Villiers says he probably would have gone with the stats and bowled first too "but actually I'm pretty happy". The Oval is usually pretty decent to bat on. Rory Kleinveldt is the man given the tricky gig of impersonating Dale Steyn today.

England 1 Alastair Cook (capt), 2 Ian Bell, 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Joe Root, 5 Eoin Morgan, 6 Jos Buttler (wk), 7 Ravi Bopara, 8 Stuart Broad, 9 James Tredwell, 10 James Anderson, 11 Steven Finn

South Africa 1 Colin Ingram, 2 Hashim Amla, 3 AB de Villiers (capt, wk), 4 JP Duminy, 5 Faf du Plessis, 6 David Miller, 7 Ryan McLaren 8 Robin Peterson 9 Chris Morris, 10 Rory Kleinveldt, 11 Lonwabo Tsotsobe

9.55am: We're hearing that Swann and Bresnan are also both out, for different reasons. James Tredwell and Steven Finn are their likely replacements, though our correspondent at The Oval, Goerge Dobell, has put a farthing on Chris Woakes being included. Anyway, before we get final confirmation of the line-ups, some more preparatory material: Dobell on England's attempts to defy the critics (featuring an ace Jonathan Trott story - I know!) and Firdose Moonda on South Africa's excess tournament baggage. Enjoy.

9.50am: The toss is ten minutes away. I'll update you on the pitch and conditions then but it's a warm day outside and ... *hesitates over keyboard* ... we're not expecting rain. How are you feeling? Jogging on the spot and stretching those hammies in preparation for a big day of commenting, I trust...

"SA missing four 'marquee' players today (Smith, Kallis, Steyn and Morkel). No team can easily accommodate that loss," says James, possibly with a smirk on his fizzog. "That and weather conditions (muggy, so the ball should swing), might tip the balance in England's favour."

Ravinder Phogat is pining for Steyn already: "What a big blow to SA before even start of the match, I hope SA plays natural game and remove the 'C' tag, it's a good squad of youngsters"

And Rohit Dighe is behind enemy lines in the phoney war: "Actually, good evening here from Australia, where we're all down at the pub eagerly awaiting the game. Here's to a destroyal of England, to hamper their Ashes lead-up. Cheers!"

9.45am: We're still awaiting news on Graeme Swann, by the way - he was also going to have to run around some cones this morning and test his calf. England have said they won't risk him if he's not fit as a mountain goat (my words). Tim Bresnan is expected to miss the game, having gone back to Halifax to be with his pregnant wife ... but then you can read all about this sort of thing in our preview.

9.40am: Good morning and welcome to ESPNcricinfo's ball-by-ball-by-ball coverage of the Champions Trophy semi-final between England and South Africa. Between them, they've got one ICC 50-over pot but they stand on the brink of a final appearance. Nervous? The first bit of news to bring you, from a muggy, cloudy London, is that Dale Steyn has failed a fitness test and will miss the game. I'm Alan Gardner, fit as an Australian fast bowler, and I'll be joined by Alex Winter to bring you today's big-match stramash.

0.1

Anderson to Ingram, no run, angled across on a length outside off, good carry through to the keeper as Ingram leaves

Two slips in place to begin with...

0.4

Anderson to Ingram, no run, big swing for Anderson, full and wide and hooping even further as Ingram chases it fruitlessly

0.5

Anderson to Ingram, OUT, straightens on him this time and rapped on the knee roll, gone! Anderson only needs two cards to trick Ingram, a huge outswinger followed up by a length ball that holds its line on middle and leg, the bat was late coming down to join the pad and up goes the finger. Ingram looks at Amla momentarily before sloping off without asking for a review

CA Ingram lbw b Anderson 0 (2m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Here we go, South Africa like to have a bit of fun - Robin Peterson is out at No. 3 again

RJ Peterson    0* (1b)      JM Anderson    1-0-2-1
HM Amla    0* (0b)     

Steve Finn, rather than Stuart Broad, will bowl from the Pavilion End

1.1

Finn to Amla, 1 run, floated up outside off, Amla waits on it and calmly steers a single to third man - there, there, Hashim's got it covered

1.2

Finn to Peterson, 1 run, on the pads, Peterson clips it wide of square leg to get of the mark too

1.3

Finn to Amla, no run, back of a length, quick and bouncy and softly dabbed towards point off the back foot

1.4

Finn to Amla, OUT, tries to pull out and it clips the toe, brilliant catch by Buttler, they've got Amla too! Finn's extra pace probably key here, the ball shaping away on a good length outside off, Amla knew he didn't want to play at it but with his twirly backlift couldn't quite draw the bat out of the way, just a small deflection and it went low to Buttler's right where he snagged it securely. England are in clover!

HM Amla c †Buttler b Finn 1 (9m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Faf du Plessis is the new man at No. 4

1.5

End of over 2 (2 runs) South Africa 4/2 (RR: 2.00)
F du Plessis    0* (2b)      ST Finn    1-0-2-1
RJ Peterson    1* (2b)      JM Anderson    1-0-2-1

2.1

Anderson to Peterson, no run, big booming inswinger, this is outrageous stuff from Anderson, the batsman gets willow nowhere near leather but it thumps the pad outside leg

2.2

Anderson to Peterson, no run, shaping back at Peterson on a good length again, gets behind this to defend

2.3

Anderson to Peterson, no run, speared across and whipping away towards first slip, no shot played - wisely

2.6

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, gets forward and shows a solid forward defensive around the line of off stump

Here's Pushpa R Neupane: "SA are limping here. Still lot more to go but, the difference between these two teams will be seen only when SA come to bowl. They will miss Steyn badly, who can make early breakthroughs."

End of over 3 (1 run) South Africa 5/2 (RR: 1.66)
F du Plessis    0* (3b)      JM Anderson    2-0-3-1
RJ Peterson    2* (7b)      ST Finn    1-0-2-1

3.2

Finn to Peterson, no run, pitched up and angled across, opens the face and guides the ball low to point

3.3

Finn to Peterson, FOUR, full and wide, in Peterson's slot and he unleashes a glorious cover drive, good connection and flowing follow through, beats the fielder's slide to the boundary

3.4

Finn to Peterson, no run, slightly full and swinging in on middle and off, Peterson shows it the face

3.5

Finn to Peterson, no run, dug in short and quick, flashes across the left-hander as Peterson pulls wildly, misses

3.6

Finn to Peterson, no run, seaming away off a length in the channel outside off, leaves this one

"The ball is swinging, expect Bob Willis to start his accusations early." This is the regular stuff, Nishit, so Bob shouldn't mind

End of over 4 (6 runs) South Africa 11/2 (RR: 2.75)
RJ Peterson    8* (13b 1x4)      ST Finn    2-0-8-1
F du Plessis    0* (3b)      JM Anderson    2-0-3-1

4.1

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, lovely shape on an outswinger in the channel, wide enough for du Plessis to leave though

4.2

Anderson has been stretching his knee between deliveries, seems a touch discomfited

4.5

Anderson to Peterson, 3 runs, pitched up on leg stump and Peterson times a flick through midwicket very well, not quite enough to get four though

4.6

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, a peach of a ball, full and nibbling away as du Plessis plunged forward, he just manages to hold his bat inside the line

"I like the idea behind sending Peterson at No3," says Gururaj. "I guess his role is to see off the new ball and later better batsman can capitalize in the last few overs when it gets easy to score." It didn't work too badly against India, though the second half of the plan failed to come together

End of over 5 (5 runs) South Africa 16/2 (RR: 3.20)
F du Plessis    1* (6b)      JM Anderson    3-0-8-1
RJ Peterson    11* (16b 1x4)      ST Finn    2-0-8-1

5.1

Finn to Peterson, no run, slanted across on a length, left outside off stump

5.2

Finn to Peterson, FOUR, short ball, at the body, Peterson is confident to rock back and pull into the ground through square leg, good enough connection to beat fine leg running round

5.3

Finn to Peterson, FOUR, sprays this down the leg side, low full toss and Peterson only needs a snick of bat on it to get four... and Finn has tumbled over in his follow through, too

5.4

Finn to Peterson, FOUR, four more, driven dreamily back down the ground! Too full and wide from the bowler, Peterson watches it under his nose and punches crisply past mid-off

5.5

Finn to Peterson, no run, better length and sailing through outside off, lets it go

5.6

Finn to Peterson, 1 run, leg-stump line, clipped behind square, slightly aerial but nowhere near a catcher

Well, that's Finbarred England's good start. SA may now be able to settle

End of over 6 (13 runs) South Africa 29/2 (RR: 4.83)
RJ Peterson    24* (22b 4x4)      ST Finn    3-0-21-1
F du Plessis    1* (6b)      JM Anderson    3-0-8-1

Here's Spoo: "I think the toss will end up having a huge influence on the result today. SA might not have exploited the conditions so well but would have at least prevented Anderson and co from happily swinging them far far away."

6.1

Anderson to Peterson, no run, slightly short and left alone outside off stump

6.2

Anderson to Peterson, no run, angled across and pushed into the covers coming forward

6.6

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, fullish and tight on off, holding its line and well defended on the front foot

"South Africa's batting has a great depth," says Abdul Aleey optimistically. "Morris could also bat."

End of over 7 (1 run) South Africa 30/2 (RR: 4.28)
F du Plessis    1* (7b)      JM Anderson    4-0-9-1
RJ Peterson    25* (27b 4x4)      ST Finn    3-0-21-1

No surprises that Finn is replace by Broad after that expensive last over

7.1

Broad to Peterson, no run, good length and angled across outside off, defended into the off side from the crease

7.2

Broad to Peterson, 2 runs, dropped but it would have been a mind-blowing take from Ian Bell at extra cover! Peterson continues to attack, this is driven hard but uppishly and Bell dived two-handed to his left, the ball clanging away off the fingertips

7.3

Broad to Peterson, no run, gets forward and drives on the up again, this bobbles to mid-off

7.4

Broad to Peterson, 1 run, squared up and edged high over backward point, Peterson had no idea where that was going, trying to play across the line, but it lands safe

7.5

Broad to du Plessis, FOUR, pinged through midwicket for four, du Plessis' first - lovely stroke, right off the middle coming forward to a full, straight delivery

7.6

Broad to du Plessis, no run, length ball around the off stump, blocked into the off side

"Depth in batting line up leads you to negative attitude, taking things for granted until the last wicket," counters Karimulla

End of over 8 (7 runs) South Africa 37/2 (RR: 4.62)
F du Plessis    5* (9b 1x4)      SCJ Broad    1-0-7-0
RJ Peterson    28* (31b 4x4)      JM Anderson    4-0-9-1

England bring in a short extra cover for the easy driver Peterson

8.1

Anderson to Peterson, no run, shapes back as Peterson comes forward and gets in a bit of a tangle attempting to block

8.2

Anderson to Peterson, no run, angled across, full-pitched and flayed off the front foot but straight to that newly stationed close fielder

8.3

Anderson to Peterson, 1 run, on the hips and flicked through square leg

8.4

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, full and shaping away, du Plessis goes across and then decides to leave it well alone

8.5

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, slightly shorter, straightening outside off again, hops back and shoulders arms - well judged

Still two slips in for Faf

8.6

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, good length and angled in, holding its line, blocked on the front foot

Du Plessis has looked very secure so far, while Peterson has provided the impetus... Here's Sriram: "The problem for SA batsmen will be what target can they give their bowling line up to defend! That line up does not have enough strike bowlers."

End of over 9 (1 run) South Africa 38/2 (RR: 4.22)
F du Plessis    5* (12b 1x4)      JM Anderson    5-0-10-1
RJ Peterson    29* (34b 4x4)      SCJ Broad    1-0-7-0

9.1

Broad to Peterson, no run, slightly back of a length and coming back over the top of off, defended from the crease

9.2

Broad to Peterson, 1 run, angled across, short and heading towards first slip, Peterson goes across and dabs one into the leg side

"Robbie P's doing a job here, scoring some good runs (and some lucky ones) - still a lot of pressure on the SA batters," says Myron

9.3

Broad to du Plessis, FOUR, cross-seam delivery from Broad - even in these conditions England are thinking about reverse, it seems - but it's a touch wide, du Plessis reaches out and clatters an angled drive through extra cover for four

On comes a groundsman to sprinkle a little sand in the footholes

9.4

Broad to du Plessis, no run, outside off, short of a length, defended back to the bowler

9.5

Broad to du Plessis, 2 runs, length ball, outside off, du Plessis waits on it and then chops through backward point, well timed but Trott gallops round from third man to prevent another boundary

9.6

Broad to du Plessis, no run, a touch fuller, punched on the front foot straight to mid-off

Here's Azee, with a brief history of pinch-hitting: "The tactic of sending Peterson at No3 reminds me of the similar tactic used by Pakistan in 1999 World Cup, where Abdul Razzaq whould see off the new ball and middle order capitalized on it. Apart from the final. Interestingly Imran Khan employed it earlier in 1992 World Cup and that worked all the way to finals."

End of over 10 (7 runs) South Africa 45/2 (RR: 4.50)
F du Plessis    11* (16b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    2-0-14-0
RJ Peterson    30* (36b 4x4)      JM Anderson    5-0-10-1

Lively Powerplay, then. This pitch seems pretty quick, runs in it for sure. Anderson continues

10.1

Anderson to Peterson, no run, goes round the wicket, angled in and then holding its line to beat Peterson's dab

10.2

Anderson to Peterson, no run, even better delivery, on that in-between length, curling away as Peterson presses forward and is beaten again

10.3

Anderson to Peterson, no run, straighter, outside off and Peterson thrusts out his front pad as the ball sings through, gives Anderson a grin

10.4

Anderson to Peterson, no run, draws him out again as the ball swings away, gets his bat inside

10.5

Anderson to Peterson, OUT, attacks the stumps this time, hit on the knee and given! Having repeatedly pulled Peterson across his wicket with the ball that leaves him, Anderson pitched this one full and straight - hit in front of middle, the only question was whether it would have gone on with angle past leg stump but Peterson decides against reviewing after a few words with du Plessis. England have pinched out the pinch-hitter

RJ Peterson lbw b Anderson 30 (44m 41b 4x4 0x6) SR: 73.17

Cook will be delighted at having kept Anderson on for another over. ABdV out next, his side needing a captain's innings

10.6

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, straight and a touch short, over the top of leg stump and de Villiers wears it on the pad

End of over 11 (wicket maiden) South Africa 45/3 (RR: 4.09)
AB de Villiers    0* (1b)      JM Anderson    6-1-10-2
F du Plessis    11* (16b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    2-0-14-0

11.1

Broad to du Plessis, no run, short and around the line of off, defended back down the track

"All depends on AB now although Petersen was definitely looking in good touch," says swapnil

11.2

Broad to du Plessis, 3 runs, pitched up and asking to be driven, du Plessis obliges and picks up three into the deep through cover

End of over 12 (3 runs) South Africa 48/3 (RR: 4.00)
AB de Villiers    0* (5b)      SCJ Broad    3-0-17-0
F du Plessis    14* (18b 2x4)      JM Anderson    6-1-10-2

Anderson continues, cranking it up for another over

12.1

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, gets forward to defend a good-length ball around off

12.2

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, very full, going for the yorker, du Plessis jams his bat down on it and the ball loops up and drops a few inches wide of his off stump - not sure he spotted where it had gone

End of over 13 (1 run) South Africa 49/3 (RR: 3.76)
AB de Villiers    0* (8b)      JM Anderson    7-1-11-2

13.2

Broad to du Plessis, no run, short of drivable length, stands tall and drives to mid-on

13.3

Broad to du Plessis, 1 run, tip and run to mid-off, there's a shy at the non-striker's end but du Plessis was home

13.4

Broad to de Villiers, OUT, full and wide, de Villiers plays a filthy swat and nicks off! Broad is charging around with his finger in the air - they check for the no-ball but it's about a mile behind the line, compared to the Williamson dismissal the other day. It was another cross-seam delivery, not sure what de Villiers was thinking, he flung a horizontal bat out and the under-edge was audible. He drags himself away, leaving his side in real trouble

AB de Villiers c †Buttler b Broad 0 (12m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Back to left-hand, right-hand with JP Duminy at the crease

13.5

Broad to Duminy, no run, hit in front first ball, playing down the wrong line and given by Rod Tucker! Duminy looks crestfallen but eventually asks for the review, it struck him on the knee roll in front of middle but crucially pitched just outside leg stump, do the decision is overturned

13.6

Broad to Duminy, no run, angled across on a good length and left along, dropping the hands out of the way

"SA is repeating its history of not reaching finals." Hold on, Mahesh Yadav, they're not not there yet

End of over 14 (1 run) South Africa 50/4 (RR: 3.57)
JP Duminy    0* (2b)      SCJ Broad    4-0-18-1
F du Plessis    16* (24b 2x4)      JM Anderson    7-1-11-2

Spin into the attack, Tredwell on for Anderson...

14.1

Tredwell to du Plessis, 1 run, tossed up around off, flicked through midwicket, slightly aerial but they get one

14.2

Tredwell to Duminy, no run, Duminy is hit in front again! Tredwell drifted this one on with the arm from round the wicket and he was hit directly in front of leg... but England decide not to review the not-out decision

14.3

Tredwell to Duminy, no run, slightly wider, straightening around off, plays this very late

14.4

Tredwell to Duminy, 1 run, tossed up around off and poked into the off side to get Duminy off a blob

14.6

Tredwell to du Plessis, no run, tossed up outside off, du Plessis gets forward and covers the line

A message on Twitter, from PK: "I'm finding it hard to breathe at the moment.. I got some bad kinda cough going on......" Oh Kevin!

15.1

Broad to Duminy, no run, short and tapped square on the off side from the crease

15.3

Broad to du Plessis, no run, gets forward to a length ball around off and defends

15.4

Broad to du Plessis, 4 leg byes, slides down the leg side, is this a thin edge? Buttler didn't get there anyway and leg byes are given

15.5

Broad to du Plessis, FOUR, pitched up and boomed down the ground, a lofted on-drive from du Plessis, into the gap and away for four to long-on

15.6

Broad to du Plessis, no run, gets forward crabbily and defends a length ball into the off side

"Taking the review against Duminy should have been an attacking tatcic from England.... or are they saving the review for du Plessis?" wonders Ashar

End of over 16 (9 runs) South Africa 61/4 (RR: 3.81)
F du Plessis    21* (31b 3x4)      SCJ Broad    5-0-23-1

16.5

Tredwell to Duminy, OUT, played on, Tredwell gets Duminy after all! There wasn't room for the cut, it was an offbreak that skidded on and cramped him for room, Duminy hasn't looked comfortable against spin and he cannons a bottom edge on to the stumps

JP Duminy b Tredwell 3 (13m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

David Miller in - he knows how to hit the ball in English conditions, as Yorkshire fans will tell you

16.6

Tredwell to Miller, no run, continues round the wicket, tossed up and Miller defends studiously on the front foot

17.2

Finn to du Plessis, no run, full and in the channel, driven back and Finn stops it

19.1

Finn to Miller, FOUR, four for Miller, he times a punch square off the back foot, getting on top of the bounce and using the pace, Morgan gets a hand on it at point but can't pull it in

Here's Kudzie: "I dont think Steyn or Morkel could have saved the day for the Proteas today. Can't imagine what miracle will be needed to save a team from 70/6. The batting has let the team down, never mind what the bowlers are going to do"

19.2

Finn to Miller, no run, beaten, a tigerish response from Finn, back of a length and keeping Miller in his crease as he fished outside off

20.2

Tredwell to McLaren, OUT, down the wicket, comes off the pad to slip, appeal for lbw but McLaren is out of his ground and Trott is very aware of that and runs him out with a little underarm throw.

Finn to Kleinveldt, no run, back on his stumps again, struck on the pad, cry for lbw turned down, sliding down and too high for me but Cook reviews as a last minute decision, might as well I suppose but this is almost certainly down leg side. it's actually taking a good chuck of the leg stump, it wasn't too high, but the decision stays on the field

Rathnavel Pandian: "Not very impressed with Cook. Should've given his 4 bowlers the full 40 overs to try and get the wickets of these two. Opting for part-timers just shows that he wants to keep some safe-bowling options at the death. That's not aggressive captaincy."

36.3

The best things about this stand is the boundaries have come very regularly, partnership is at a great lick...

38.1

Broad to Kleinveldt, 1 wide, back of a length down leg side

38.1

Broad to Kleinveldt, no run, shorter, Kleinveldt backs away, Broad follow him and gets hit on the shoulder trying to hook

38.2

Broad to Kleinveldt, no run, low full toss, swung back towards the bowler, Broad half-saves on the bounce

38.3

Broad to Kleinveldt, OUT, back of a length, a touch down the leg side, Buttler takes off and takes a fine catch and England end a very annoying stand that might have brought South Africa back into the game. It was banged in again by Broad, Kleinveldt couldn't get inside the line and gloved it to give Buttler the chance to take a fine catch

RK Kleinveldt c †Buttler b Broad 43 (69m 61b 4x4 1x6) SR: 70.49

38.4

Broad to Tsotsobe, OUT, another bumper, ducked but also a touch on this and given out caught behind and Broad has wrapped things up nicely in two balls, couldn't duck under the short ball and Buttler takes his sixth catch of the innings, another little glove through to the keeper

LL Tsotsobe c †Buttler b Broad 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

1.30pm, lunch Well that's the end of the that fun. David Miller and Rory Kleinveldt were playing really nicely, some sensible batting and powerful strokemaking had threatened to rescue South Africa but it was too much to ask after the earlier carnage where England were rampant with the new ball under cloudy skies having won the toss. James Anderson was sublime and James Tredwell was again very good. South African fired out well under par and England should have no trouble chasing that down on what is a good wicket.
