0.1

Steyn to Denly, no run, well, Denly gets through his first ball as he drives into the off side

0.2

Steyn to Denly, 1 run, think inside edge into the leg side...Denly and England are away in this massive run chase

0.3

Steyn to Cook, no run, play and a miss outside off, full ball tempts the drive but it scoots past the edge

0.4

Steyn to Cook, no run, boy, that was close to taking out leg stump...Cook went to the off side and missed the delivery and almost got bowled round his legs as the ball swung

0.5

Steyn to Cook, 1 run, worked off his pads down to long leg, looks for a second but it's not on

0.6

England 3/0   DW Steyn 1-0-3-0
2.1

Steyn to Denly, no run, goes for a pull and gets a bottom edge into his pads...rolls into the off side where Steyn prevents a run

2.2

Steyn to Denly, no run, steps away to leg and exposes his stumps, almost gets cleaned up as he misses an expansive drive

2.3

Steyn to Denly, FOUR, pulls again and gets a bottom edge past leg stump which races down to the fine-leg boundary...that's the life of a bowler in this format

2.4

Steyn to Denly, no run, good comeback, yorker outside off stump and Denly is late jabbing down on it

2.5

Steyn to Denly, 2 runs, flies off a thick outside edge over point, Denly aimed that a lot straighter but gets away with it...de Villiers makes a superb save on the point boundary

2.6

Steyn to Denly, 1 run, whipped off leg stump out to deep square-leg

England 20/0   DW Steyn 2-0-10-0
13.1

Steyn to Trott, 3 runs, gets a full toss away through the leg side, Botha makes a good save on the boundary with a nifty back-flick

13.2

Steyn to Pietersen, SIX, that's a big one...another length ball goes for six as Pietersen launches this over the deep midwicket boundary

13.3

Steyn to Pietersen, 1 run, flayed along the ground to midwicket...a quick single to test KP's Achilles

Steyn to Trott, 1 run, spooned to long off

13.5

Steyn to Pietersen, 1 run, sweetly timed down the ground

17.1

Steyn to Wright, FOUR, steps away and drives hard through the covers, almost a good save from Kallis but his foot slide into the rope

17.2

Steyn to Wright, 1 run, goes off side again, picks out the cover fielder inside the circle

17.3

Steyn to Morgan, OUT, I think that's out...full, straight, quick and Morgan is left with only leg-stump standing. Was actually in the hitting arc for Morgan, but he just missed it

EJG Morgan b Steyn 10 (11m 7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

17.4

Steyn to Prior, 1 wide, greets Prior with a bouncer which is too short and is called...but I think that's more about making a statement with the match well and truly safe

17.4

Steyn to Prior, no run, well bowled, beats Prior's drive with a full ball that swings a touch

17.5

Steyn to Prior, 1 run, driven to backward point

17.6

Steyn to Wright, OUT, another goes, the ball again goes miles in the air as Wright tries to find the grass banks on the leg side but instead finds Johan Botha

LJ Wright c sub (J Botha) b Steyn 12 (8m 5b 1x4 1x6) SR: 240.00

England 146/6   DW Steyn 4-0-29-2
