2.2

Anderson to Amla, no run, uncomfortable start! On the perfect length and finding the edge first-up, but all along the ground to the slips

2.3

Anderson to Amla, no run, outside off, but definite zip through to the keeper. Lively

2.4

Anderson to Amla, no run, lovely bowling. A fraction short of a length but leaping past the splice. Dicey times

2.5

Anderson to Amla, 1 run, good thinking from Anderson, pitching it up to seek that swing, but Amla is equal to this one and stabs it through the leg-side to get off the mark

South Africa 4/1   HM Amla 1* (4b)
3.1

Onions to Amla, no run, short and effective, Amla drops his wrists and the rest of his body follows suit

3.2

Onions to Amla, no run, pitched up this time, and seaming late. No stroke offered

3.3

Onions to Amla, no run, drawn forward on a good length, poked into the covers

3.4

Onions to Amla, no run, wide of off stump, and left alone more comfortably this time

3.5

Onions to Amla, no run, definite signs of late movement, but Amla is judging the line well, and leaves alone outside off

3.6

Onions to Amla, no run, massive appeal as Amla walks across his stumps, and the ball deflects into the leg side. Consultations going on there, but Onions rightly decides not to call for the review

South Africa 4/1   HM Amla 1* (10b)
5.1

Onions to Amla, no run, down the leg-side

5.2

Onions to Amla, no run, more uncomfortable bounce from a good length. A short leg might come into play soon

5.3

Onions to Amla, no run, outside off, in the channel, demanding respect, if not a stroke every delivery. Left alone this time

5.4

Onions to Amla, 1 run, fuller length, attacking the base of off stump, and pushed without much timing into the covers

South Africa 7/1   HM Amla 2* (14b)
6.1

Anderson to Amla, no run, lovely line and length, ghosting past the edge as Amla just about held his bat inside the line

6.2

Anderson to Amla, 1 leg bye, speared onto the pads, shouts of "catch!" as the ball deflected in the air, but it was never close to short leg

South Africa 8/1   HM Amla 2* (16b)
7.5

Onions to Amla, no run, outside off stump, in the channel and left alone

7.6

Onions to Amla, no run, a tired-looking delivery, although he's surely got plenty more in the tank for now. A bit short and a fraction wide, but Amla ignores the chance to fling the bat

South Africa 10/1   HM Amla 2* (18b)
9.1

Broad to Amla, no run, that's a promising start, hitting the deck hard on a full length, and zipping away

9.2

Broad to Amla, no run, full again with a bit of swing this time, and met with good aggression as Amla drives. Encouraging opening foray for England

9.3

Broad to Amla, no run, a touch wide, and left alone

9.4

Broad to Amla, OUT, massive blow! The fullest delivery of the match so far, and arguably of Broad's entire tour, as Amla plants his front foot and doesn't even ponder wasting a review on that one. HawkEye shows that that would have hit middle and leg two-thirds up, and England are on fire

HM Amla lbw b Broad 2 (35m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 9.09

South Africa 10/2   HM Amla 2 (22b)
