South Africa won by an innings and 74 runs
14,15,16,17 January 2010 (5-day match)
  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Amla b Steyn 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 gone! What an incredible start! A back-of-a-length delivery on the pads, Strauss played with an angled bat to deflect the ball into the leg-side, but Hashim Amla, under the lid at backward short leg, swooped superbly with his right hand, and clung onto a blinder! 0/1
View dismissal AN Cook lbw b Morkel 21 49 31 2 0 67.74
9.4 a review coming up, as Cook is given out lbw ... it could be marginal ... He took a while to ponder the option, but it seemed to the naked eye to be quite high, and potentially outside leg... this is absolutely crucial ... and there are so many permutations. No inside-edge, but surely that was a no-ball! Perhaps there is a fraction of leather behind the line ... either way, it's been given! 39/4
View dismissal IJL Trott lbw b Morkel 5 8 8 1 0 62.50
1.6 full length, loose on-drive, that's plumb! The end of a bewildering innings from Trott, who swished at anything that moved, and eventually played across the line to a full-length delivery 7/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Parnell b Morkel 7 26 16 1 0 43.75
7.5 good grief, another one bites the dust, and it's the debutant Wayne Parnell at mid-on! Back of a length, Pietersen climbs into a full-blooded pull, but he doesn't time it properly and Parnell is on hand to intercept. 32/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Duminy b McLaren 47 104 61 5 2 77.04
30.3 squared up, a leading edge, and that's caught at point! A massive breakthrough and that is McLaren's first in Tests. Smith's hunch has paid off, just enough nibble off the deck to turn a regulation nurdle off the pads into a muffed false shot, and Duminy leans forward to collect a lobbed opportunity! 115/5
View dismissal IR Bell b Steyn 35 125 86 6 0 40.69
37.4 castled! And that is exceptional bowling. Steyn has been swinging everything away, and this one zips back off the deck, through the gate, and into the stumps! High quality fast bowling, and there's very little that Bell could have done about that 133/6
View dismissal MJ Prior c †Boucher b Steyn 14 45 25 2 0 56.00
39.1 England collapsing here! Prior gone! Short ball, Prior tries to pull it away but it catches the gloves and goes slowly though to Boucher. Easy catch and South Africa are all over England here. "So much for your quiet hour," says Miller. 136/7
View dismissal SCJ Broad c Morkel b Kallis 13 18 13 2 0 100.00
40.5 gone this time! One shot too many perhaps. Back of a length, straight into Broad and he flaps it, needlessly really, in the air to mid off. Hit, hope and fail. 148/8
View dismissal GP Swann c †Boucher b Steyn 27 43 27 3 1 100.00
47.5 gets him this time though. Outside off stump, Swann flays at it and it comes off an inside edge through to a diving Boucher. 180/10
View dismissal RJ Sidebottom c †Boucher b Steyn 0 12 6 0 0 0.00
43.2 gone! Steyn gets another! All very easy really, outside off, Sidebottom comes forward and nicks it behind to Boucher. South Africa rampant here! 155/9

  South Africa 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* c Strauss b Sidebottom 105 252 187 16 0 56.14
57.2 edged and gone! A good length delivery that seams, rather than swings, and Strauss at first slip gobbles the edge in his midriff 201/2
View dismissal AG Prince c Swann b Broad 19 71 48 3 0 39.58
16.3 that one is definitely out! Good delivery climbing outside off, Prince propped forward, found a thick edge, straight into Swann's midriff at second slip 36/1
View dismissal HM Amla c †Prior b Broad 75 216 138 8 0 54.34
64.6 the swing does the trick! Exceptional one-handed catch from Prior, diving in front of first slip, as Amla leans into a drive, but the ball ghosts away late, snicks the edge and England have their incision! 217/3
View dismissal JH Kallis c Anderson b Sidebottom 7 41 24 0 0 29.16
65.6 wow, now we have got a game on here! Well-directed bouncer from Sidebottom, Kallis is caught completely unawares and muffs a bail-out pull. Anderson in the gully reacts like lightning, hurtles forward, scoops with one hand, and suddenly South Africa have lost two in two overs! 217/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Collingwood b Broad 58 165 119 5 0 48.73
102.4 got him this time! Slightly shorter, de Villiers leans into a whippy pull, but his shot hasn't got the power or the timing to beat wide mid-on. And that's a timely wicket for England 355/6
View dismissal JP Duminy c Collingwood b Swann 7 31 20 1 0 35.00
73.1 absolutely incredible! Swann has struck with his first ball yet again, and his bunny, Duminy, can only shake his head in disbelief! A perfect line and length, tossed up outside off, sharp spin and extra bounce, and Collingwood snaffles the edge 235/5
View dismissal MV Boucher c Trott b Swann 95 196 118 9 0 80.50
117.1 oh that is unlucky for Boucher, so close to a hundred, he's top edged a sweep down to a tumbling Trott at deep square. Fantastic innings from a fantastic cricketer. 419/7

View dismissal AJ Strauss* lbw b Parnell 22 58 45 3 0 48.88
12.3 Review: much fuller ball, and this nips off the seam and thuds into Strauss' pads. Massive appeal for lbw. Was there an inside edge? He was given out by Tony Hill... and after some deliberation that is given out and that's Wayne Parnell's first wicket in Test cricket 48/3
View dismissal AN Cook c Smith b Morkel 1 14 6 0 0 16.66
3.4 Morkel strikes! South Africa breakthrough early! On the off stump channel, moving away with the angle, a touch of extra bounce and it finds the outside edge of Cook's defensive shot and flies through to Smith at slip who gobbles it up gleefully 6/1
View dismissal IJL Trott c de Villiers b Steyn 8 15 9 2 0 88.88
6.1 Gone! Got him! You always felt Steyn could be lethal against the right handers, Trott had not settled but what could he do with this. Full, snaking away at the last moment, flies off the outside edge from a defensive shot to third slip 21/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c †Boucher b Parnell 12 91 42 2 0 28.57
22.4 there's the breakthrough! A push across Pietersen's bows, a wild swish to a ball that keeps going towards the slips, and a faint nick through to Boucher! 84/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Morkel b Duminy 71 139 88 12 1 80.68
39.1 got him straight away! Horrid delivery, dragged down, Collingwood tried to hoik it out the Wanderers but didn't quite time it and found Morkel at deep square 154/9
View dismissal IR Bell c Kallis b Morkel 5 35 17 1 0 29.41
29.3 this time he's gone. Another fine delivery from Morkel. Superb line, excellent bounce, a regulation edge at head height to second slip 103/5
View dismissal MJ Prior c Smith b Morkel 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
29.5 well, that was even briefer than anyone could have imagined! A short ball outside off, a loose swish, a steepling top-edge, and Smith back-pedals to cling onto the catch 103/6
View dismissal SCJ Broad c †Boucher b Morkel 1 11 9 0 0 11.11
31.3 Review. Broad given not out to one that arrowed down the leg side. Instant review and looks like it clipped the glove. There was a big, dare I say it, sound Even Harper could get this right, surely. Yes, he's gone. Broad hangs around for a while and drags himself off. Wheels are off for England now. 104/7
View dismissal GP Swann c de Villiers b Steyn 20 21 17 3 0 117.64
35.5 gone this time! Full and swinging, Swann aims to block but the late away swing finds the edge and it goes straight through to De Villiers at slip. Almost all over now! 134/8
View dismissal RJ Sidebottom b Duminy 15 37 17 2 0 88.23
42.5 Gone, got him! South Africa win the Test and level the series! Sidebottom tried to heave this through the leg side but misses and it crashes into the stumps. South Africa win by an innings and 74 runs. 169/10
