England won by an innings and 98 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

96.2

Broad to Ntini, no run, tumultuous applause as Ntini props forward to his first ball of the match

96.3

Broad to Ntini, no run, onto the back foot this time as Ntini defends again

96.4

Broad to Ntini, no run, short, and ducked this time. Well ducked

96.5

Broad to Ntini, no run, outside off stump and no stroke offered

96.6

Broad to Ntini, 2 runs, pushed onto the back foot, and the crowd rise in unison to acclaim his first run, a thick edge down to third man. Broad is not amused

South Africa 288/9   M Ntini 2* (5b)

97.4

Swann to Ntini, no run, looping, flighty delivery on off stump. Blocked again

97.5

Swann to Ntini, no run, massive appeal as Ntini pads up to a big ripper from outside off, but there was too much guesswork going on there. It was going to hit middle as well ...

97.6

Swann to Ntini, no run, more sharp spin, and Ntini wears that in the midriff. Attacking over

South Africa 289/9   M Ntini 2* (8b)

99.1

Swann to Ntini, no run, outside off, Ntini pokes loosely and Prior whips off the bails

99.2

Swann to Ntini, no run, played from deep in the crease, watches the spin onto the bat

99.3

Swann to Ntini, 1 run, fuller and almost handsomely driven out to deep midwicket. More cheers

99.5

Swann to Ntini, 1 run, tossed up outside off, and slapped through midwicket with lusty intent. The sweeper sweeps up

South Africa 296/9   M Ntini 4* (12b)

100.2

Broad to Ntini, no run, better line and length, defended with an angled bat to point

100.3

Broad to Ntini, 4 leg byes, poor bowling from Broad, he's been feeding the tailenders' pads, and pays the price again. South Africa bring up their 300

100.4

Broad to Ntini, no run, stands tall in defence to push that one back down the wicket

100.5

Broad to Ntini, no run, sharp lifter, and Ntini plays it well with soft hands at the top of the bounce

100.6

Broad to Ntini, no run, short and wide, but Ntini's loose waft makes no contact

South Africa 302/9   M Ntini 4* (17b)

101.2

Swann to Ntini, 1 run, thwack. A stand-and-deliver tonk into the leg-side. Huge air on that ball, but Pietersen at long-on can't make the ground in time

South Africa 304/9   M Ntini 5* (18b)

102.1

Anderson to Ntini, no run, pitched up and met with a full face. Defended

102.2

Anderson to Ntini, no run, attempted yorker, well bowled and well played. An inside-edge rules out any hope of an lbw appeal

102.3

Anderson to Ntini, no run, full and late-swinging once again. Ntini watches it all the way onto the bat

102.4

Anderson to Ntini, no run, bouncer and comfortably ducked. I sense England are getting a mite peeved now

102.5

Anderson to Ntini, no run, outside off, Ntini leaves alone with a flourish

102.6

Anderson to Ntini, no run, outside off, tighter line but well judged and left alone

South Africa 312/9   M Ntini 5* (24b)

103.6

Swann to Ntini, no run, big stride forward and that's watchfully played, out into the off side. Good over, and England might have to deny Swann his shot at five, because Steyn has got his number right now

South Africa 319/9   M Ntini 5* (25b)

104.5

Anderson to Ntini, no run, well left, Ntini raises his bat in a massive arc outside off. One ball to survive in this over

104.6

Anderson to Ntini, no run, he survives, but only just. A tight line outside off, and the ball ghosts past the edge

South Africa 324/9   M Ntini 5* (27b)

105.6

Swann to Ntini, no run, defended on the line of off stump. And surely Swann will have to take a blow now

South Africa 335/9   M Ntini 5* (28b)

107.1

Swann to Ntini, 1 run, nearly a mix-up as they scamper a single to backward point, but Broad's shy was too high for Prior to gather in time

107.6

Swann to Ntini, no run, big stride, angled bat, beautifully executed. Now, it's over to Steyn, one blow from his fifty

South Africa 343/9   M Ntini 6* (30b)
