Morkel to Strauss, OUT, that's done him this time! The round-the-wicket line, a hint of movement, climbing through the gate and taking out middle stump. No need to review that!

AJ Strauss b Morkel 54 (80m 67b 9x4 0x6) SR: 80.59

England 71/1   AN Cook 16* (46b 2x4)   M Morkel 6.4-3-14-1

Morkel to Trott, OUT, massive wicket, and that will delight South Africa, because it's the irritant Trott. Outside off, cramped for room and forced to play, extra bounce grazed the edge, and Boucher made no mistake!

IJL Trott c †Boucher b Morkel 18 (39m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 58.06

England 104/2   AN Cook 31* (68b 5x4)   M Morkel 9.3-3-22-2

Harris to Pietersen, OUT, huge wicket! Pietersen gone and Harris gets his man! Pietersen had looked edgy against Harris all morning, and he went for another expansive sweep shot here, but it was too full and crashed straight into his pad on middle and off stump. Given out, Pietersen entertained thoughts of a referral but correctly decided against it. So Kallis's drop will not cost South Africa

KP Pietersen lbw b Harris 31 (86m 52b 4x4 0x6) SR: 59.61

England 155/3   AN Cook 50* (136b 5x4)   PL Harris 8.3-0-36-1

Morkel to Cook, OUT, got him this time! Morkel continuing around off stump and Cook finally has a nibble at one, catches the outside edge and goes through to Kallis, who makes no mistake. Ends a fantastic fighting innings

AN Cook c Kallis b Morkel 118 (401m 263b 11x4 0x6) SR: 44.86

England 297/4   PD Collingwood 68* (144b 5x4)   M Morkel 22.4-5-60-3

Duminy to Collingwood, OUT, gone! Collingwood's long vigil has ended and he won't make a hundred. Shorter from Duminy, but Collingwood toe-ends his cut shot and Boucher makes no mistake behind the stumps. Good reward for Duminy who has bowled quite nicely here

PD Collingwood c †Boucher b Duminy 91 (283m 215b 7x4 0x6) SR: 42.32

England 365/5   IR Bell 45* (56b 5x4 1x6)   JP Duminy 10.5-1-32-1

Duminy to Prior, OUT, Duminy's persistence with a wide line outside off pays dividends at last. A bit of grip ensures an under-edge on another aggressive cut, and the ball deflects into the stumps

MJ Prior b Duminy 60 (134m 81b 6x4 1x6) SR: 74.07

England 477/6   IR Bell 96* (167b 7x4 1x6)   JP Duminy 16.5-1-66-2

Duminy to Broad, OUT, on a good length, appreciable spin, a regulation edge as Broad props forward, and a looping edge to Jacques Kallis at slip. So, the breakthrough comes, and Duminy has three

SCJ Broad c Kallis b Duminy 20 (65m 59b 1x4 1x6) SR: 33.89

England 536/7   IR Bell 131* (216b 10x4 1x6)   JP Duminy 23.5-1-88-3

Steyn to Swann, OUT, and now he's gone. Booming swing again, and Swann can't get decent bat on this one. An attempted flick ends up as a leading edge, and Ashwell Prince gallops in from mid-on to scoop the chance

GP Swann c Prince b Steyn 22 (15m 14b 2x4 1x6) SR: 157.14

England 564/8   IR Bell 137* (221b 10x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 33-6-91-1

Steyn to Bell, OUT, Bell's gone now, and the end of the innings is nigh. Width from Steyn, swinging further away, and though he rightly chases the ball, he can only get a toe-end through to Boucher

IR Bell c †Boucher b Steyn 140 (313m 227b 10x4 1x6) SR: 61.67

England 568/9   JM Anderson 1* (2b)   DW Steyn 33.2-6-93-2
