    9.1 short ball, Smuts flails across the line, big top edge... taken! Malan circles around under it from fine leg and shows safe hands, ending a laboured stay from the SA opener. Plunkett gets reward for a probing spell 59/3
    1.6 got him, gift-wrapped to mid-off! Hendricks goes for a laboured duck, chipping straight to the fielder... and Tom Curran is off on his dancing, jinking victory run once again. I have a feeling England fans are going to see that a fair bit as time goes by 11/1
    4.2 short ball, Morris pulls... and sends it down the throat of deep square leg! Well taken by Hales, leaping to grab it above his head a yard or so in from the boundary. A minor Morris contribution, the promotion to No. 3 fails to come off and England have their second wicket 22/2
    10.6 floats the ball up, tempting him again... and taken on the rope! Crane goes bananas in celebration, running around like he's just scored the winner in the last minute of the FA Cup final... But what a huge wicket that is, his first in international cricket, too! De Villiers seemed to hit it pretty well but Hales was again well-positioned on the rope at deep square leg and took a smart catch as Crane stood agog in anticipation 82/4
    11.3 short and wide, slashed... and edged to the keeper! Miller won't be saving SA here, Jordan is the one off a celebratory dash, he angled the bouncer across the lefty, who could perhaps have gone over gully with an uppercut but instead nicked an aggressive swipe 86/5
    13.4 banged in short on off stump and Behardien hooks unconvincingly, sending a top edge limping to deep backward square! Another SA batsman perishes in the deep... They should have brought their armbands 91/6
    18.6 another full toss, flapped into the leg side... and taken by deep midwicket running in! They want to check for the no-ball on height but it seems fine, dipping towards the batsman's waistband as he heaved unsuccessfully for another safe catch in the deep 145/7
