  • Overs 1-50

  • Overs 101-150
23.1

Trott to Kallis, 2 runs, It's slow, full and wide, Kallis gleefully pushes into the covers for runs

23.2

Trott to Kallis, no run, this one is outside off stump and passes through, eventually, to Prior

23.3

Trott to Kallis, no run, better line, attracts a defensive shot, much to the excitement of the fielders, but it rolls out towards midwicket

23.4

Trott to Kallis, no run, outside off stump again, and Kallis leaves it alone

23.5

Trott to Kallis, no run, Trott does an Ntini impression here, wide of the crease and angling in, but very slowly, to Kallis who defends

23.6

Trott to Kallis, no run, this one leaps up at Kallis from a decent length, and he rips his bottom hand off the handle as he defends. Could have been Malcolm Marshall the way he played that

South Africa 66/2   IJL Trott 1-0-2-0
42.1

Trott to Smith, no run, who starts wonderfully gently, popping it on around off stump and Smith defends into the covers

42.2

Trott to Smith, 2 runs, well played here, walked right across to the off side and worked the ball firmly through midwicket

42.3

Trott to Smith, 1 run, on and around off stump, and worked into the leg side. These two had a bit of needle in the lead up to the Test, maybe that's in Strauss's thinking.

42.4

Trott to Kallis, no run, driven with style down to mid on

42.5

Trott to Kallis, no run, Kallis hangs back in his crease from this searing 72mph delivery, and defends. Are England missing a fifth bowler?

42.6

Trott to Kallis, 3 runs, floated up around off stump, Kallis obligingly cover drives it towards the boundary where some ungainly but effective fielding from Anderson saves a run. It brings up the 100th partnership, from a neat 200 deliveries, and it's only the second ever between these two. Oddly

South Africa 110/2   IJL Trott 2-0-8-0
44.1

Trott to Kallis, no run, Trott continues to bowl, for some reason, and it's on a good line and Kallis defends

44.2

Trott to Kallis, no run, driven handsomely but straight to the cover fielder

44.3

Trott to Kallis, FOUR, well, more regret for England. Trott finds the edge (somehow) and it flies though a massive gap between the keeper and slip, in the air, for four to bring up Kallis's fifty. And a crucial one it's been in the circumstances

44.4

Trott to Kallis, no run, stands tall and forces it away off the back foot to cover

44.5

Trott to Kallis, 2 runs, a touch too short, and worked away to midwicket

44.6

Trott to Kallis, no run, Trott is clearly pumped with his near-miss, steams in and Kallis defends solidly, doesn't stop Trott from roaring an appeal, presumably thought it could have caught pad first. It didn't

South Africa 117/2   IJL Trott 3-0-14-0
46.1

Trott to Kallis, no run, Trott continues, and it's defended into the off side

46.2

Trott to Kallis, no run, defended back towards the bowler

46.3

Trott to Kallis, no run, expansively driven but to the fielder

46.4

Trott to Kallis, 2 runs, lovely shot this, walked at Trott, who dropped short, then Kallis waited and just guided it to third man for a couple

46.5

Trott to Kallis, 3 runs, timed dreamily through the off side, fullish delivery, and Kallis leant on it and it flew through short cover where only the slow outfield and diving Anderson prevented four

46.6

Trott to Smith, no run, Trott would argue he's found his rhythm here, and Smith defends

South Africa 126/2   IJL Trott 4-0-19-0
