14,15,16,17 January 2010 (5-day match)
  • Overs 0-50

Steyn to Strauss, OUT, 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!

AJ Strauss c Amla b Steyn 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 0/1   AN Cook 0* (0b)   DW Steyn 0.1-0-0-1

Morkel to Trott, OUT, 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

IJL Trott lbw b Morkel 5 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

England 7/2   AN Cook 2* (3b)   M Morkel 1-0-4-1

Morkel to Pietersen, OUT, 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.

KP Pietersen c Parnell b Morkel 7 (26m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

England 32/3   AN Cook 18* (22b 2x4)   M Morkel 3.5-0-17-2

Morkel to Cook, OUT, 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!

AN Cook lbw b Morkel 21 (49m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 67.74

England 39/4   PD Collingwood 2* (2b)   M Morkel 4.4-0-20-3

McLaren to Collingwood, OUT, 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!

PD Collingwood c Duminy b McLaren 47 (104m 61b 5x4 2x6) SR: 77.04

England 115/5   IR Bell 30* (66b 5x4)   R McLaren 8.3-3-24-1

Steyn to Bell, OUT, 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

IR Bell b Steyn 35 (125m 86b 6x4 0x6) SR: 40.69

England 133/6   MJ Prior 13* (23b 2x4)   DW Steyn 8.4-0-34-2

Steyn to Prior, OUT, 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.

MJ Prior c †Boucher b Steyn 14 (45m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 56.00

England 136/7   SCJ Broad 2* (7b)   DW Steyn 9.1-1-34-3

Kallis to Broad, OUT, 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.

SCJ Broad c Morkel b Kallis 13 (18m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 148/8   GP Swann 1* (4b)   JH Kallis 7.5-3-29-1

Steyn to Sidebottom, OUT, gone! Steyn gets another! All very easy really, outside off, Sidebottom comes forward and nicks it behind to Boucher. South Africa rampant here!

RJ Sidebottom c †Boucher b Steyn 0 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 155/9   GP Swann 8* (13b 1x4)   DW Steyn 11.2-1-40-4

Steyn to Swann, OUT, gets him this time though. Outside off stump, Swann flays at it and it comes off an inside edge through to a diving Boucher.

GP Swann c †Boucher b Steyn 27 (43m 27b 3x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

England 180/10   JM Anderson 6* (13b)   DW Steyn 13.5-1-51-5
