ICC Champions Trophy - 1st semi final

England v South Africa

England won by 7 wickets (with 75 balls remaining)

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

South Africa 1/1   HM Amla 0* (0b)   JM Anderson 0.5-0-1-1

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

South Africa 4/2   RJ Peterson 1* (2b)   ST Finn 0.4-0-2-1

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

South Africa 45/3   F du Plessis 11* (16b 2x4)   JM Anderson 5.5-0-10-2

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

South Africa 50/4   F du Plessis 16* (24b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 3.4-0-18-1

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

South Africa 63/5   F du Plessis 22* (32b 3x4)   JC Tredwell 1.5-0-4-1

18.4

Tredwell to du Plessis, OUT, quicker ball, flashes hard and scrapes the edge and Buttler takes it! South Africa are six down! Du Plessis moved across outside off, Tredwell seemed to dart it through a little wider in response, the bat came through late and the set du Plessis falls

F du Plessis c †Buttler b Tredwell 26 (79m 39b 3x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

South Africa 70/6   DA Miller 3* (4b)   JC Tredwell 2.4-0-8-2

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. Superb work. McLaren skipped down the wicket, got beaten trying to play to leg and then couldn't get back into his ground quick enough as Trott hit the stumps directly

R McLaren run out 1 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

South Africa 76/7   DA Miller 8* (9b 1x4)   JC Tredwell 3.2-0-8-2

22.3

Tredwell to Morris, OUT, slider outside off, played forward and nicked behind, another one falls and it's Tredwell again, floating one up nicely just outside off, Morris came forward again but the delivery slid on and feathered his outside edge on the way through to Buttler

CH Morris c †Buttler b Tredwell 3 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 80/8   DA Miller 9* (16b 1x4)   JC Tredwell 4.3-0-12-3

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

South Africa 175/9   DA Miller 56* (51b 5x4 2x6)   SCJ Broad 8.3-0-50-2

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

South Africa 175/10   DA Miller 56* (51b 5x4 2x6)   SCJ Broad 8.4-0-50-3
