8.5

Kallis to Trott, 5 wides, that's a bouncer that has gone wrong...banged in very short and it's miles over the batsman's head as well as going down the leg side. Keeper couldn't do much

9.4

14.1

Imran Tahir to Trott, no run, given out! We have a review as Trott misses a sweep and is given lbw. He calls for the DRS. Is it turning enough to miss off stump? Indeed it's missing, a good review from Trott who survives

20.6

Duminy to Trott, 1 run, Trott pinches the strike but fiddling a single towards fine leg. Overs ticking by but South Africa just opening the smallest gap back for England here

27.6

Steyn to Trott, no run, very firmly driven here but straight to cover. Anderson will be watching Steyn's progress closely, this pitch really doesn't look one for the pitch-up skiddy merchants

29.4

Imran Tahir to Trott, no run, carefully defended this time back to the bowler

29.5
