View dismissal HM Amla c Hales b Broad 56 45 37 6 2 151.35
10.5 88.2 mph, swung over the leg side again but this time picks out deep midwicket and Amla falls having provided his side with a lovely start. He tried to clear the front leg to swing a short ball just outside off over the leg side but the connection wasn't great and he found Hales 90/1
View dismissal Q de Kock st †Buttler b Tredwell 29 53 33 2 0 87.87
12.2 57.0 mph, down the wicket, de Kock runs straight past it and this time Buttler completes the stumping with a sharp piece of work but that was equally as straightforward as the Amla chance. Tredwell did de Kock in the flight really, who came out of his ground and got nowhere near the pitch of the ball, tried to steer it into the leg side but missed 98/2
AB de Villiers* not out 69 53 28 9 3 246.42
View dismissal JP Duminy run out (Bopara/†Buttler) 5 12 5 0 0 100.00
14.3 from Jordan, short and pulled into midwicket, Duminy didn't time this, it looped into the deep but short of Bopara but he gathers and throws at the striker's end and Duminy is having to dive to get back for the second - with no bat! - and is run out comfortably. For once England smart in the outfield, that was good work from Bopara, danger man gone 120/3
View dismissal DA Miller c Ali b Jordan 19 26 15 2 1 126.66
18.4 90.7 mph, similar delivery, swung towards long-on and not timed well enough and Moeen takes the catch straight to him and he took it at waist height. Simply not enough willow on the stroke from Miller 174/4
View dismissal JA Morkel b Bresnan 3 8 3 0 0 100.00
19.6 84.1 mph, full just outside off, Morkel tries to swing to the leg side and gets a thick inside edge into his stumps so nothing off the last ball, Morkel swinging a bit too hard 196/5
Extras (b 4, lb 2, w 8, nb 1) 15

View dismissal AD Hales c Miller b Parnell 38 35 22 6 1 172.72
7.2 81.7 mph, full outside off, Hales drives in the air towards cover and he hasn't got enough on this and deep cover takes the catch running in. The ball was there to hit but Hales didn't get the timing right, it squirted off the outer half of the bat and found Miller who took a solid catch, huge wicket 73/2
View dismissal MJ Lumb c Miller b Parnell 18 22 14 1 2 128.57
4.4 90.2 mph, low full tosd, Lumb drives and manages to pick out extra cover who takes a fine lower catch, excellent grab going to his left and taking it down low, big wicket, Lumb just got the placement wrong 46/1
View dismissal MM Ali c †de Kock b Parnell 10 13 10 1 0 100.00
7.3 86.6 mph, back of a length, Moeen goes to pull and gets a tickle on it that and it carries low to de Kock who claims the chance nicely down low to his right hand side diving forward, excellent catch and the South Africans are cock-a-hoop, two huge wickets in consecutive balls 73/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan c †de Kock b Imran Tahir 14 26 14 1 0 100.00
12.1 60.1 mph, slider outside off, Morgan back to cut but it's onto him too quickly and this takes a thin outside edge that is safely pouched by de Kock. Excellent delivery and Morgan falls far too cheaply than was required for his side 105/4
View dismissal JC Buttler c Morkel b Imran Tahir 34 37 24 2 1 141.66
14.4 53.8 mph, reverse sweep and he picks out backward point good connection from Buttler but no placement, straight to the fielder and it's easily pouched, huge moment in the game, is that England gone now? 131/5
View dismissal RS Bopara c Miller b Steyn 31 36 18 3 1 172.22
19.1 88.2 mph, length and Bopara lifts it high, high into the night sky, but not long enough, Miller with the catch that's a solid take and England surely now are dead. Again, like Jordan, it was a very hittable ball but Bopara simply mistimed it 175/7
View dismissal CJ Jordan c de Villiers b Hendricks 16 21 14 2 0 114.28
18.3 86.0 mph, swung down the ground but this is struck properly and de Villiers running back takes an excellent catch. It was a ball to hit, on a length but Jordan didn't get hold of it enough and could only chip it to where de Villiers could field it 167/6
