South Africa v England

England won by an innings and 98 runs

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

0.1

Anderson to Smith, no run, A touch of swing that started wide and went wider, left well alone

0.2

Anderson to Smith, 1 run, South Africa are away, but streakily, off an inside edge to a fullish ball that swung away from off stump

0.3

Anderson to Prince, 2 runs, full and wide and guided, but with bat well away from body, through point where a very slow outfield restricts it to two

0.4

Anderson to Prince, no run, good ball, full and swinging, with a perfect upright seam, away from Prince who hangs his bat out, as the ball zips past

0.5

Anderson to Prince, no run, full again, good length in these conditions and Prince thinks about playing before drawing his bat inside the line

0.6

Anderson to Prince, no run, too wide and happily left alone to complete a decent first over

South Africa 3/0   JM Anderson 1-0-3-0

2.1

Anderson to Prince, OUT, Anderson strikes early! Classic opening wicket, just back of a length, moved a touch away from Prince as he tried to defend off the back foot. It bounced a little more than he expected and ended up fencing, off the shoulder of the bat, to Graeme Swann at third slip.

AG Prince c Swann b Anderson 2 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

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

2.6

Anderson to Smith, no run, back of a length and met with a straight bat on the back foot. Feisty over

South Africa 4/1   JM Anderson 2-0-4-1

4.1

Anderson to Smith, no run, zipping back into the left-hander this time. Squeaks of excitement, but that was always high

4.2

Anderson to Smith, no run, fired across the left-hander, and heading ever wider. Still, he might have flashed at it I suppose

4.3

Anderson to Smith, no run, a beauty, short and climbing across the left-hander, and Smith just does enough to pull his gloves inside the line. Dangerous delivery

4.4

Anderson to Smith, no run, full length again, and swinging prodigiously towards the cordon. Smith defends with an angled bat and point tidies up

4.5

Anderson to Smith, 2 runs, this one holds its line, and Smith jabs into the leg-side

4.6

Anderson to Smith, no run, drawn forward, and pushed into the covers. More swing in evidence, and that's another fine over

South Africa 6/1   JM Anderson 3-0-6-1

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

6.3

Anderson to Smith, no run, outside off stump, left alone this time

6.4

Anderson to Smith, no run, just a touch too short, more swing, but Smith is able to watch that onto the middle of the bat

6.5

Anderson to Smith, no run, width outside off, left alone without much alarm

6.6

Anderson to Smith, 1 run, short, a rarity so far, but Smith picks that well enough and pulls behind square without too much fuss

South Africa 9/1   JM Anderson 4-0-7-1

8.1

Anderson to Smith, no run, round the wicket and climbing past the edge, Smith shoulders arms at the last minute

8.2

Anderson to Smith, no run, outside off stump, left alone

8.3

Anderson to Smith, no run, outside off once again, no stroke this time

8.4

Anderson to Smith, no run, dragged forward on off stump and studiously blocked

8.5

Anderson to Smith, no run, six inches too wide to tempt a stroke, and swinging wider

8.6

Anderson to Smith, no run, determined defence on a tighter line. Defended back down the pitch

South Africa 10/1   JM Anderson 5-1-7-1

10.1

Anderson to Smith, no run, swing, and copious amounts thereof. Streaking late across Smith's bows, and defended on the back foot

10.2

Anderson to Smith, no run, prodded to midwicket, as the 90% humidity, and an apparently high tide, all contribute to yet more swing

10.3

Anderson to Smith, no run, Smith takes a blow on the finger as he plays low in front of his pads. And that hurt him. He doesn't often show much pain, but Mitchell Johnson broke his finger twice last year, so out comes the physio

10.4

Anderson to Smith, no run, That zippy short length comes out once again, just a fraction too short to catch Smith out, but bending late through the air to keep him honest

10.5

Anderson to Smith, no run, fuller and a shade wider, left alone

10.6

Anderson to Smith, no run, that one reared from a full length, and Smith does brilliantly to ride the bounce of that one. He grins broadly after escaping that bullet

South Africa 12/2   JM Anderson 6-2-7-1

19.1

Anderson to Smith, no run, starts with a ball swinging away from Graeme Smith's off stump, he leaves alone

19.2

Anderson to Smith, no run, better line but quite short, Smith is battling hard here, stands tall and defends

19.3

Anderson to Smith, no run, fuller length and just outside off stump, Smith defends with a closed face to mid on

19.4

Anderson to Smith, FOUR, too wide, a bit short, and Smith crunches it through cover for his first boundary. Great batting to have defended all morning, but still jump all over a loose delivery

19.5

Anderson to Smith, no run, again dragged back of a good length, Smith, slightly more assertively, defends to midwicket

19.6

Anderson to Smith, 1 run, much fuller, enough to draw a scream of excitement from the England fielders, as it squirts of the inside edge down to fine leg

South Africa 46/2   JM Anderson 7-2-12-1

21.1

Anderson to Kallis, 1 run, speared short of a length into the body and turned away to deep square

21.2

Anderson to Smith, FOUR, too short, which given the conditions is not the smartest length, Smith rocks back and shoves it away with a pull shot for four to deep square

21.3

Anderson to Smith, no run, back of a length again, Smith stands tall and defends with authority back towards the bowler. Crucial period before lunch here

21.4

Anderson to Smith, no run, tight line on off stump, but the length allows Smith to skip back and defend to mid on

21.5

Anderson to Smith, no run, much better length but too wide of off stump and swinging wide, Smith shoulders arms

21.6

Anderson to Smith, no run, wide of off stump and left alone again

South Africa 55/2   JM Anderson 8-2-17-1

24.1

Anderson to Smith, 1 run, Smith gets inside this shortish delivery, and works it away firmly behind square

24.2

Anderson to Kallis, no run, lovely delivery, full, jagging away, Kallis leans forward to defend but it zips past the outside edge

24.3

Anderson to Kallis, no run, good again, the full length makes Kallis defend from the front foot, but he's hanging in his crease and defends late on it

24.4

Anderson to Kallis, no run, this time Kallis is more solidly forward and defending from off stump to the cover region

24.5

Anderson to Kallis, no run, looking for the yorker from wide of the crease, lands it well, but Kallis is up to the task and blocks it out to mid off

24.6

Anderson to Kallis, no run, angled in again, and once more Kallis is a picture of determination, defending solidly to complete the session.

South Africa 67/2   JM Anderson 9-2-18-1

26.1

Anderson to Kallis, 1 run, leaping bounce into the thigh pad. Kallis removes one hand from the bat as he tries to defend

26.2

Anderson to Smith, no run, clearly pitches outside leg, so no chance of an lbw. But some slight alarm as Kallis turns down a sharp single to short leg

26.3

Anderson to Smith, no run, outside off, and that zips past the edge. Smith just about avoids playing at that one

26.4

Anderson to Smith, no run, pushed back into the crease, and punched up to midwicket

26.5

Anderson to Smith, 2 runs, on the pads, flicked fine, and the slow outfield comes to England's aid again

26.6

Anderson to Smith, 2 runs, on the pads again, slightly erring in line at the end of that over. Fine leg tidies up

South Africa 72/2   JM Anderson 10-2-23-1

28.4

Anderson to Smith, 1 run, up on the toes, and clipped into the leg side

28.5

Anderson to Kallis, no run, drawn forward and dead-batted into the covers. South Africa have looked comfortable since the resumption

28.6

Anderson to Kallis, 1 run, short, and pulled calmly to Alastair Cook in the deep. Steady progress so far

South Africa 76/2   JM Anderson 11-2-25-1

30.1

Anderson to Kallis, no run, brought forward on off stump, and resolutely defended once again

30.2

Anderson to Kallis, 1 run, up onto the toes, and clipped behind square

30.3

Anderson to Smith, FOUR, that won't keep the slips in business. A misdirected bouncer, down the leg side, and helped over the ropes with a roll of the wrists

30.4

Anderson to Smith, 1 run, driven hard but Onions at mid-on can only parry the ball as he dives. A scampered single ensues

30.5

Anderson to Kallis, no run, width outside off, and no stroke offered this time

30.6

Anderson to Kallis, 1 run, dabbed into the gap, and a single to complete the over

South Africa 84/2   JM Anderson 12-2-32-1

61.1

Anderson to Boucher, FOUR, well, Boucher is off straight away. Full and on leg stump, clipped easily away for a boundary

61.2

Anderson to Boucher, no run, good comeback, better line, around off stump, Boucher hops back and inside-edges this on to his pads. Drawing squeals from the England fielders

61.3

Anderson to Boucher, no run, good ball again, swinging in and beating Boucher's defensive shot and the ball rammed into the pads. Another appeal but it was sliding down leg

61.4

Anderson to Boucher, no run, slightly shorter and Boucher mistimes an attempted cut and the ball trickles out on the off side

61.5

Anderson to Boucher, 1 run, back on a full length and it's worked towards midwicket for a single

61.6

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, swinging in on middle stump and de Villiers defends perfectly back to the bowler to complete the over

South Africa 180/5   JM Anderson 13-2-37-1

63.1

Anderson to Boucher, no run, short and rearing up at Boucher who stands tall and guides it out to point

63.2

Anderson to Boucher, 1 run, better length, fuller, giving it an opportunity to swing in, Boucher drops it out on the off side and scampers through for a quick single

63.3

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, full and angling in again, de Villiers defends from the front foot

63.4

Anderson to de Villiers, 2 runs, swinging in once more, does he bowl any outswingers these days? de Villiers works it into the leg side, wide of midwicket, off a thick inside edge

63.5

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, outside off stump, left well alone

63.6

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, swinging in again, but it's an attacking, full length and a tight leave from the batsman

South Africa 184/5   JM Anderson 14-2-40-1

65.1

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, angling in again, and defended without alarm

65.2

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, wide of off stump and left alone

65.3

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, this is again well wide of off stump, not going to interest anyone, least of all de Villiers, who shoulders arms

65.4

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, better line, forces a defensive shot from another fullish, inswinging delivery

65.5

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, a touch wide again, and can't draw a shot

65.6

Anderson to de Villiers, 3 runs, just back of a length on off stump, de Villiers, stands tall and forces it, from the top of it's bounce, through the covers where only a snail outfield prevents four. Top shot.

South Africa 189/5   JM Anderson 15-2-43-1

67.1

Anderson to Boucher, 2 runs, Anderson still gunning for the inswinger, angles it in at Boucher who works it to midwicket

67.2

Anderson to Boucher, no run, shorter length, won't find any swing from there, but it's on off stump and defended into the covers

67.3

Anderson to Boucher, no run, spearing in once more, defended from the crease

67.4

Anderson to Boucher, FOUR, lovely shot, another full and inswinging delivery, Boucher turns his wrists over it and flicks finely for four

67.5

Anderson to Boucher, no run, responds with a bouncer, but it's far too short and sails over a crouching Boucher harmlessly

67.6

Anderson to Boucher, no run, finds the ball he's been looking for all over, swinging in and rushing Boucher's defensive shot into the leg side

South Africa 197/5   JM Anderson 16-2-49-1

80.1

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, zip off the seam first-up! A touch too wide to draw a stroke, but instant encouragement for England

80.2

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, sensible bowling from Anderson, pitching it up by half a yard and demanding a stroke

80.3

Anderson to de Villiers, 1 run, worked into the covers, and they scamper a single to bring Morkel onto strike

80.4

Anderson to Morkel, 1 run, on the pads, flicked fine. A fraction misdirected

80.5

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, nothing misdirected about that one! The ball zips past the edge, and the players go up for a huge, if slightly uncertain appeal. Sensibly they decline to review

80.6

Anderson to de Villiers, FOUR, too much width and far too short. A poor ball to finish an attacking over, and de Villiers' quick hands make even quicker work of that

South Africa 245/6   JM Anderson 17-2-55-1

82.1

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, Angled in from a better length, crashes into the pads

82.2

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, holds it's line just outside off, de Villiers thinks about playing before opting to leave

82.3

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, given the conditions and the new ball, Anderson should be fuller here, but it's on a length, outside off and left alone

82.4

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, finds a better length here, attacking the stumps and it's defended from the crease

82.5

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, this really zips through, on a length outside off and flew through de Villiers's defensive fence

82.6

Anderson to de Villiers, FOUR, grim. Horrid short and wide delivery, de Villiers throws him arms at it, top edges, to the third man boundary, Anderson looks aghast, as well he might. Poor way to finish the over for him

South Africa 249/6   JM Anderson 18-2-59-1

84.1

Anderson to Morkel, no run, outside the off stump, Morkel lifts the bat high above his head, which given his height, is miles from the ground

84.2

Anderson to Morkel, no run, good shorter ball, Morkel took a blow at Centurion from Onions, this time he stands up and plays it well

84.3

Anderson to Morkel, FOUR, great shot, pitched up a fraction and Morkel strides out and drives handsomely through the covers

84.4

Anderson to Morkel, 1 run, so Anderson reverts to short of a length, and Morkel helps it round the corner

84.5

Anderson to de Villiers, 2 runs, another caressed back foot drive, taken from the top of it's bounce, through the covers, excellent shot, but far to short from Anderson

84.6

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, good response, much fuller and finds movement of the pitch as it skims past de Villiers's prod outside off

South Africa 257/6   JM Anderson 19-2-66-1

86.1

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, We have a review.... good ball, full and swinging in, rushes through de Villiers's defensive stroke and clips the back pad. Given not out by the on-field umpire, and it looks like the correct decision, because it's going well over the top. England could have been looking for an inside edge as well, but it wasn't there

86.2

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, less incident here, outside off and left alone

86.3

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, much better length from Anderson this over, has de Villiers defending from the crease

86.4

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, full again and swinging in, de Villiers drops it into the off side, the batsmen think about a single but some sharp fielding prevents any chance

86.5

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, fuller, inviting the drive, de Villiers obliges but it goes straight to mid off

86.6

Anderson to de Villiers, no run, slightly too wide outside off stump, de Villiers leaves alone. Much better over there, more threatening

South Africa 263/6   JM Anderson 20-3-66-1

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   JM Anderson 21-4-66-1

104.1

Anderson to Steyn, no run, speared into the pads, but can't get that away

104.2

Anderson to Steyn, FOUR, that is a wonderful strike! Not even de Villiers could have played that better. Onto the back foot, and crashed through the covers with a full and straight blade

104.3

Anderson to Steyn, no run, loose drive, but that is doing too much and would have missed leg

104.4

Anderson to Steyn, 1 run, swiped across the line, not quite such good shot selection for those last two deliveries, but he's still there

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   JM Anderson 22-4-71-1

106.1

Anderson to Steyn, no run, attempted yorker, comes out as a low full-toss on leg stump, but no real damage

106.2

Anderson to Steyn, FOUR, epic batting! A fraction short, and Steyn rocks back to butcher that through midwicket! In the end it wasn't perfectly timed, but the intent was plain and shot selection flawless

106.3

Anderson to Steyn, no run, defended on the back foot as Anderson tightens his line. Watchful

106.4

Anderson to Steyn, no run, banged in short, and just outside off. Left alone

106.5

Anderson to Steyn, no run, up onto the toes, and deflected out to point with a flick of the wrists

106.6

Anderson to Steyn, no run, short and straight, but survived

South Africa 339/9   JM Anderson 23-4-75-1

108.1

Anderson to Steyn, no run, no fireworks there, just calm watchfulness

108.2

Anderson to Steyn, no run, short, and climbing over the batsman's head. He ducks well

108.3

Anderson to Steyn, OUT, there it is, the end comes at last, and sadly for Steyn he falls short of his half-century. A short delivery, just straight enough to demand a stroke, and Prior behind the stumps gathers a regulation nick

DW Steyn c †Prior b Anderson 47 (66m 58b 3x4 3x6) SR: 81.03
