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

9.5

Broad to Kallis, 2 runs, full once again, Kallis pokes a drive to mid-off to get his innings underway

9.6

Broad to Kallis, no run, attempted yorker, and Kallis flashes an inside-edge onto his pads. Broad has got his Oval length back, and that's extremely promising for England's prospects

South Africa 12/2   SCJ Broad 1-0-2-1
11.1

Broad to Kallis, no run, outside off, in the channel, no stroke offered

11.2

Broad to Kallis, no run, that's some judgement, almost yorker length and three or four inches outside off, and Kallis coolly lets that one go

11.3

Broad to Kallis, no run, rammed back into the crease, defended with a perpendicular bat, straight back down the pitch

11.4

Broad to Kallis, no run, full and driven, straight back into Broad's palm. Good wicket-to-wicket line

11.5

Broad to Kallis, no run, a foot outside off and a hint of swing. No stroke this time

11.6

Broad to Kallis, 2 runs, on the pads, clipped through the leg-side. The end of another tight and probing over

South Africa 14/2   SCJ Broad 2-0-4-1
13.1

Broad to Smith, no run, full once again, defended on the line of off stump

13.2

Broad to Smith, no run, full and fuller, that's the length. Defended back down the track again

13.3

Broad to Smith, no run, outside off, left alone more comfortably this time

13.4

Broad to Smith, 3 runs, on the toes, and Smith clips that firmly, but the rain-soaked outfield does the fielder's work, and South Africa still haven't managed a boundary this morning

13.5

Broad to Kallis, no run, outside off, Kallis shoulders arms

13.6

Broad to Kallis, no run, too wide to tempt a stroke, but enough swing to keep the batsman thinking

15.1

Broad to Kallis, no run, in the channel, full and Kallis decides on a tight leave

15.3

Broad to Kallis, no run, better line and defended back to the bowler

15.4

Broad to Kallis, no run, wide of the crease, spearing it into Kallis's pads, extended but half-hearted appeal from England, but the ball was sliding past leg stump

15.5

Broad to Kallis, FOUR, a touch shorter and wider of off stump, though it didn't get as high as Kallis expected, he still cut it away for a boundary, the first of the match

15.6

Broad to Kallis, FOUR, cracking shot, just short of a good length, Kallis rocks back, swivels on one leg and pulls to the midwicket boundary

South Africa 34/2   SCJ Broad 4-0-17-1
17.1

Broad to Kallis, no run, Broad has an important job following that good over, and starts well on off stump, Kallis jumps back and defends

17.2

Broad to Kallis, no run, too wide to interest Kallis, who watches it intently go past his as he shoulders arms

17.3

Broad to Kallis, no run, attracts a defensive shot from a ball outside off stump, Kallis looks as though he would have preferred to leave that alone

17.4

Broad to Kallis, no run, too wide and left alone

17.5

Broad to Kallis, no run, good delivery, angled in, and Kallis again opts to leave, but the ball whistles only a fraction wide of off stump

South Africa 35/2   SCJ Broad 5-0-18-1

32.2

Broad to Kallis, 1 run, angling onto the pads, and flicked fine

Broad to Kallis, no run, back on a better length to finish

South Africa 87/2   SCJ Broad 6-0-20-1
34.1

Broad to Kallis, no run, targetting the top of off, and treated with respect as a result

34.2

Broad to Kallis, no run, squared up a touch with another fine wicket-to-wicket delivery

34.3

Broad to Kallis, no run, cramped for room so far in this over. Tight line and length

34.4

Broad to Kallis, no run, that's how to use the short ball. Genuine surprise, and perfectly directed. Kallis does well to haul his nose out of line

34.5

Broad to Kallis, no run, back on a full length, and Kallis plays from deep in the crease

34.6

Broad to Kallis, no run, excellent finish, and a well-worked maiden

36.2

Broad to Smith, no run, big stride forward and pushed back down the wicket

36.4

Broad to Smith, no run, straighter this time, and defended with bat and pad firmly together

36.5

Broad to Smith, 1 run, short, and shovelled into the leg-side, where deep midwicket collects in the long-barrier position

36.6

Broad to Kallis, no run, the bouncer again, and Kallis flaps loosely, almost as an afterthought. He fell to the short ball at Centurion, and that tempted another indiscretion

South Africa 93/2   SCJ Broad 8-1-21-1
38.1

Broad to Kallis, no run, angled bat and defended into the covers

38.2

Broad to Kallis, no run, that one jags off the seam, which is encouragement for Broad, but not the buzzing movement we saw with the new ball. Either way, Kallis wears that one painfully in the midriff

38.3

Broad to Kallis, FOUR, edged and the soft hands keeps that down, while the baking Natal sun has sped up the outfield. The combined effect is a boundary

38.5

Broad to Kallis, 1 run, short, and paddled calmly through backward square, to bring up South Africa's hundred

38.6

South Africa 100/2   SCJ Broad 9-1-26-1
40.1

Broad to Kallis, 1 run, short ball, and Kallis pulls very calmly, as if in slow-motion, down to deep square

40.2

40.5

Broad to Kallis, no run, full again and pushed to mid on

South Africa 103/2   SCJ Broad 10-1-28-1
70.1

Broad to de Villiers, no run, swinging down the leg-side, and a huge appeal as de Villiers flicks at that one. There was a noise but it might well have been pad

70.2

Broad to de Villiers, no run, forward and defended with a full face

Broad to Boucher, no run

72.4

Broad to Boucher, FOUR, short, wide, cut. Shot

72.6

Broad to de Villiers, no run, outside off, and no stroke offered as the ball threatens to tail back in

South Africa 221/5   SCJ Broad 12-2-35-1
74.1

Broad to de Villiers, no run, bashed in, short of a length, and never a danger of a shot being offered

74.2

Broad to de Villiers, no run, fuller and straighter, and met with a solid defensive push

74.3

Broad to de Villiers, no run, wide on the crease, and speared past the off stump as de Villiers shoulders arms extravagantly

74.4

Broad to de Villiers, no run, driven sublimely, but far too straight. The non-striker's stumps do the work of the fielders

74.5

Broad to de Villiers, no run, defended once again

74.6

Broad to de Villiers, no run, pushed back into the crease, and defended on the back foot

South Africa 221/5   SCJ Broad 13-3-35-1
88.1

Broad to de Villiers, no run, starts well, full, on off stump and defended with ease

88.2

Broad to de Villiers, OUT, Broad does the trick! Full length, where all the magic happens, and swinging away a touch outside off, de Villiers goes for an expansive drive but nicks it through to Prior. England really needed that.

92.1

Broad to Morkel, 1 run, Morkel looks in good nick here, forcing out in to the covers and collecting a single

Broad to Steyn, no run, Broad goes full, looking for the bowled or lbw, but Steyn, almost nonchalantly, defends easily

94.2

Broad to Steyn, no run, short again, making life uncomfortable here as Steyn rocks back and fends into the off side

94.3

Broad to Steyn, no run, slightly fuller this time and Steyn is pinned to the crease in his defensive stroke, reluctant to get forward

94.4

Broad to Steyn, no run, or not, as the case may be, this is pitched well up and Steyn defends

94.5

Broad to Steyn, no run, arrowing in once more, top bowling from Broad at the moment, Steyn is equal to the task, defending well

94.6

Broad to Steyn, 3 runs, slower delivery and too full, Steyn meets it on the full and guides it neatly to deep midwicket to close the session

South Africa 284/8   SCJ Broad 17-4-41-2
96.1

Broad to Steyn, 4 leg byes, wider on the crease and that's a freebie speared down the leg-side. Even a No. 10 doesn't miss out on those

98.5

Broad to Steyn, no run, pushed firmly to cover

98.6

Broad to Steyn, no run, short, and played down into the crease with soft hands. He rode the bounce well there
