    24.3 that's the breakthrough! Big appeal for lbw as Amla misses a straight one as he gets well across his crease and England have gone for the review. Rod Tucker said not out. Struck around the knee roll. You could see leg stump behind him. No bat involved. Height the issue? No, it isn't, it's three reds! Smashing into middle and leg. 145/2
    6.2 slogged, off the top edge, spiralling towards short fine leg... Buttler snaffles it! He did really well, a super diving catch (albeit with the aid of gloves, and that's the breakthrough England were after. Wasn't quite short enough to pull, skidded on and then went straight up. De Kock's out 33/1
    25.4 back-to-back wickets! Plunkett has deserved this. A length ball outside, du Plessis looking to work to the leg side and gets a thin edge through to Buttler 149/3
    37.5 de Villiers steps out, looks to hit this out of the ground... but he's picked out deep midwicket! Moeen gets his man, de Villiers dies by the sword and Yorkshire can feel this one swinging their way 225/7
    30.6 picks out deep midwicket! Probably not bowled for and got, but it doesn't really matter. Dragged down short, Duminy had all the time in the world but plants it down Woakes' throat on the boundary 182/4
    34.1 strikes first ball! Another giveaway. Short of a length, bit of a loosener really, Miller doesn't even try to keep it down and picks out deep midwicket - the one man in the deep on the leg side - with pinpoint precision 208/5
    35.3 goes for the reverse-sweep, top-edged and Buttler takes a dolly! Mo gets Mo and the momentum is surely with England now... You could see what Morris was trying to do, taking the aggressive option against spin, but there was just a bit of grip and bounce and it popped up to the keeper 216/6
    44.4 bumper from Woakes, swings hard again, top-edged...and taken this time! Simple catch for Wood at mid-off and England are one wicket away from an impressive win 267/9
    38.6 timbaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Bowled him behind the legs attempting to sweep again, Phehlukwayo's average is chopped in half and England move to within two wickets of victory. Looked like the googly, fuller and spinning to clip the pad before rattling leg stump 230/8
    44.6 cutter wide of the stumps, Rabada chases it, gets a big snick and Buttler finishes the job! A tidy four-for from Woakes and England have mopped up a 72-run win at Headingley to go 1-0 up in the three-match series 267/10
