View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Ali 58 49 31 7 3 187.09
11.5 struck in front - and given! Moeen was bowling over the wicket, fired it in full and Amla's run without being dismissed, which began against England in Johannesburg, comes to an end. Just a hint of turn in, might have been tight on line, but umpire S Ravi was happy it would have gone on to hit the stumps 133/3
View dismissal Q de Kock c Hales b Ali 52 32 24 7 3 216.66
7.1 smashed into the leg side... but he finds the fielder! England have the breakthrough - but have they already been broken? De Kock continued to give the bowling merry hell but this came off the toe of the bat and went straight to the man at deep midwicket 96/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Morgan b Rashid 16 7 8 0 2 200.00
8.6 got him, sliced into the off side! It came at a cost but Rashid has bought the wicket of de Villiers! He was off balance, coming down the pitch to inflict further mayhem, think Rashid dragged it down slightly and there was some spin, the ball sailing high to the edge of the ring 114/2
View dismissal F du Plessis* c Roy b Willey 17 26 17 1 0 100.00
15.3 full toss, swings across the line... and picks out deep midwicket! England bag another, du Plessis trying to get a gallop on during the closing stages but he sent the ball sailing towards Roy, running around the fence to pouch it safely 169/4

View dismissal JJ Roy c †de Kock b Abbott 43 21 16 5 3 268.75
4.3 oh dear. Another ramp and Roy looks desolate, trying to scoop it over the keeper once more but skies it 71/2
View dismissal AD Hales lbw b Abbott 17 12 7 4 0 242.85
2.3 that is dead. Middle-and-leg, goodnight - and very well bowled, at last pitching it up. Fast and straight 48/1
View dismissal BA Stokes c Morris b Rabada 15 16 9 1 1 166.66
5.4 four - no, out! A full toss smashed straight to Morris on the deep square-leg boundary. He's gutted, down on his haunches 87/3
View dismissal JE Root c Miller b Rabada 83 70 44 6 4 188.63
18.2 full toss and dispatched for ... a great catch! A lovely, running catch by Miller on the deep midwicket boundary. They're checking it for a no-ball: that's fine. Now checking for height and that too is fine, so Root's fabulous knock is over 219/6
View dismissal EJG Morgan* b Duminy 12 15 15 0 0 80.00
9.4 he's bowled him! Terrific quicker ball, the arm-ball, fired in from around the wicket as Morgan chops on, destroying his leg-stump 111/4
View dismissal JC Buttler st †de Kock b Imran Tahir 21 31 14 1 1 150.00
15.4 gone! No? Drama here. Buttler's down the pitch but is beaten in flight, and de Kock whips off the bails - or does he? It looks like he's dropped the ball. Buttler runs back into his crease, and no one seems sure, but replays confirm de Kock's stumping was fine 186/5
MM Ali not out 8 26 10 1 0 80.00
View dismissal CJ Jordan c Duminy b Abbott 5 5 3 1 0 166.66
19.1 what a catch! Jordan went for one of his tennis-pulls, smashing it to Duminy on the boundary at deep midwicket who jogged backwards, taking the catch while falling backwards 229/7
View dismissal DJ Willey run out (Miller/de Villiers) 0 2 0 0 0 -
19.2 Abbott to Ali, oh what's happened here. It's the 1999 World Cup! Driven to mid-off, they go for a run, hesitate, go again, hesitate again...the ball is thrown into de Villiers who knocks off the bails and Willey is short! 229/8
