Match drawn
3,4,5,6,7 January 2010 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Anderson to Prince, OUT, brilliant from Anderson, and that was coming. Perfect line and length, good carry off the pitch and hooping outswing, Prince flinches his gloves at the ball, and Prior does the rest.

AG Prince c †Prior b Anderson 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 1/1   GC Smith 1* (1b)   JM Anderson 0.4-0-1-1

Onions to Amla, OUT, fuller this time and struck bang in front! Shaping in a tad but Amla had planted his front foot, and played all round this, and there is no doubt

HM Amla lbw b Onions 14 (75m 56b 2x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

South Africa 46/2   GC Smith 26* (42b 3x4)   G Onions 6.4-2-19-1

Anderson to Smith, OUT, vast strike! Superb line and length from Anderson, and subtle late swing. Smith props forward, takes the edge and Prior completes the catch with a tumble diving in front of first slip

GC Smith c †Prior b Anderson 30 (94m 50b 3x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

South Africa 51/3   JH Kallis 1* (13b)   JM Anderson 6.1-1-11-2

Swann to de Villiers, OUT, gone this time! Swann from round the wicket and de Villiers will kick himself, chipped to short midwicket. Soft dismissal just as South Africa were really making England sweat. Swann continues to cause trouble but he would concede he was lucky here.

AB de Villiers c Strauss b Swann 36 (84m 60b 4x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

South Africa 127/4   JH Kallis 39* (79b 6x4)   GP Swann 7.1-0-25-1

Swann to Duminy, OUT, Swann strikes again! Sharply spinning delivery from round the wicket, catches Duminy's outside edge and Prior eagerly snaps it up. Second first-baller in a row for Duminy. Top delivery from Swann and South Africa are in real trouble.

JP Duminy c †Prior b Swann 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 127/5   JH Kallis 39* (79b 6x4)   GP Swann 7.2-0-25-2

Broad to Boucher, OUT, that's the breakthrough, or is it? It's review time ... Boucher has been struck on the back pad by one that zipped off the seam, and it's going to be upheld by the third umpire. HawkEye shows that was going to hit the top of middle, and that's a fine piece of bowling.

MV Boucher lbw b Broad 51 (98m 86b 7x4 0x6) SR: 59.30

South Africa 216/6   JH Kallis 73* (145b 8x4)   SCJ Broad 15.4-6-39-1

Onions to Kallis, OUT, what a wonderful delivery, and that is Kallis done and dusted! The ball pitched on off, zipped half-a-bat's width, took the edge, and fizzed through to the keeper! Fantastic line and control of the seam from Onions, and the perfect start for England

JH Kallis c †Prior b Onions 108 (266m 189b 11x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

South Africa 280/7   DW Steyn 26* (58b 3x4)   G Onions 18.4-3-60-2

Anderson to Steyn, OUT, what a morning for England! In the corridor outside off, Steyn pokes uneasily, gets a fat edge and Jonathan Trott at third slip dives across to snaffle the chance

DW Steyn c Trott b Anderson 26 (68m 59b 3x4 0x6) SR: 44.06

South Africa 280/8   M Morkel 0* (2b)   JM Anderson 20.1-1-62-3

Anderson to Morkel, OUT, incredible! It's catching practice this morning. Anderson finds the perfect length and extra bounce outside off, Morkel hangs out his bat, and Swann atones for his bad miss on the first morning with a fine low scoop, diving to his left at second slip!

M Morkel c Swann b Anderson 0 (8m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 281/9   PL Harris 1* (2b)   JM Anderson 20.4-1-63-4

Anderson to de Wet, OUT, we've got a review coming up. A good delivery zipping back into the pads, the umpire gives it out, but South Africa immediately ask for a second opinion. Some question about whether he was struck outside the line, but that stands

F de Wet lbw b Anderson 0 (11m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 291/10   PL Harris 10* (7b 1x4)   JM Anderson 21.1-1-63-5
