View dismissal JJ Roy c †de Kock b Parnell 1 7 6 0 0 16.66
1.2 80.5 mph, outside edge! Early breakthrough. A full ball pushed across outside off, Roy goes for a big drive and just gets a regulation nick to the keeper 3/1
View dismissal AD Hales c †de Kock b Phehlukwayo 61 81 60 8 1 101.66
17.1 80.4 mph, got him, strikes first ball! Hales will be livid at himself, instead of taking a sighter he throws his hands at a wide-ish loosener and gets a thin nick through to de Kock. Key wicket for SA, breaking a 98-run stand. They don't call Phehlukwayo Lucky for nothing 101/2
View dismissal JE Root c Amla b Phehlukwayo 37 93 51 2 0 72.54
21.4 81.8 mph, bouncer, Root swings in ungainly fashion and top edges... safely taken by Amla running square from midwicket! Phehlukwayo has another, he's using his variations well, Root was getting itchy and tried to shovel over the leg side, came high off the bat and looped tamely towards the edge of the circle 122/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c Duminy b Morris 107 135 93 7 5 115.05
47.4 85.2 mph, hasn't got the legs on this one, picks out cover. Came off low down the pitch as he tried to clear the in-field, went high and was a comfortable catch 315/6
View dismissal BA Stokes c Miller b Rabada 25 49 30 0 1 83.33
32.4 89.3 mph, shorter, straighter, and out! Back of a length on off stump, Stokes struck his pull very sweetly in front of square but picks out the man at deep midwicket 190/4
View dismissal JC Buttler c Miller b Morris 7 8 7 1 0 100.00
34.1 83.2 mph, got him! At leg gully. De Villiers will love that. Angled into the pads, Buttler obliges by flicking it in the air and it's smartly grabbed around the corner by Miller. Perhaps it was planned for the shorter ball, but they'll take it any way it comes 198/5

  South Africa innings (target: 340 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Wood 73 97 76 8 0 96.05
24.3 90.0 mph, that's the breakthrough! Big appeal for lbw as Amla misses a straight one as he gets well across his crease and England have gone for the review. Rod Tucker said not out. Struck around the knee roll. You could see leg stump behind him. No bat involved. Height the issue? No, it isn't, it's three reds! Smashing into middle and leg. 145/2
View dismissal Q de Kock c †Buttler b Woakes 5 27 13 0 0 38.46
6.2 85.9 mph, slogged, off the top edge, spiralling towards short fine leg... Buttler snaffles it! He did really well, a super diving catch (albeit with the aid of gloves, and that's the breakthrough England were after. Wasn't quite short enough to pull, skidded on and then went straight up. De Kock's out 33/1
View dismissal F du Plessis c †Buttler b Plunkett 67 76 61 8 0 109.83
25.4 84.0 mph, back-to-back wickets! Plunkett has deserved this. A length ball outside, du Plessis looking to work to the leg side and gets a thin edge through to Buttler 149/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Plunkett b Ali 45 58 38 7 0 118.42
37.5 55.5 mph, de Villiers steps out, looks to hit this out of the ground... but he's picked out deep midwicket! Moeen gets his man, de Villiers dies by the sword and Yorkshire can feel this one swinging their way 225/7
View dismissal JP Duminy c Woakes b Rashid 15 21 18 1 0 83.33
30.6 49.5 mph, picks out deep midwicket! Probably not bowled for and got, but it doesn't really matter. Dragged down short, Duminy had all the time in the world but plants it down Woakes' throat on the boundary 182/4
View dismissal DA Miller c Stokes b Woakes 11 13 10 0 1 110.00
34.1 83.4 mph, strikes first ball! Another giveaway. Short of a length, bit of a loosener really, Miller doesn't even try to keep it down and picks out deep midwicket - the one man in the deep on the leg side - with pinpoint precision 208/5
View dismissal CH Morris c †Buttler b Ali 5 6 4 1 0 125.00
35.3 51.6 mph, goes for the reverse-sweep, top-edged and Buttler takes a dolly! Mo gets Mo and the momentum is surely with England now... You could see what Morris was trying to do, taking the aggressive option against spin, but there was just a bit of grip and bounce and it popped up to the keeper 216/6
View dismissal WD Parnell c Wood b Woakes 19 36 23 2 0 82.60
44.4 85.0 mph, bumper from Woakes, swings hard again, top-edged...and taken this time! Simple catch for Wood at mid-off and England are one wicket away from an impressive win 267/9
View dismissal AL Phehlukwayo b Rashid 4 7 6 1 0 66.66
38.6 timbaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Bowled him behind the legs attempting to sweep again, Phehlukwayo's average is chopped in half and England move to within two wickets of victory. Looked like the googly, fuller and spinning to clip the pad before rattling leg stump 230/8
View dismissal K Rabada c †Buttler b Woakes 19 23 21 1 1 90.47
44.6 69.8 mph, cutter wide of the stumps, Rabada chases it, gets a big snick and Buttler finishes the job! A tidy four-for from Woakes and England have mopped up a 72-run win at Headingley to go 1-0 up in the three-match series 267/10
