    19.2 swings across the line, top-edged ... and gone! Bresnan has broken through, banging it in short as Smith skipped down the pitch, he tried to hook but the ball ballooned high into the air, over the wicketkeeper, with Kieswetter running back to settle underneath and take a safe catch 89/1

    49.4 short and slow, Amla backs away and tries to ramp the ball over short third man but it hasn't got enough pace on it and Bresnan pouches. After another everyday display of magnificence, Amla departs 285/5
    25.6 Amla calls for one but it isn't there and Duminy is run out! It was clipped through the leg side from outside off, Amla thought it had beaten midwicket and set off only for Anderson to reel the ball in and hurl it to Kieswetter, Duminy wasn't even in the picture, though he is sacrificed in favour of the senior man 121/2

    33.5 gone! Lovely bowling. Tossed up slower by Swann, it gripped off the surface and spun past the outside edge to take middle stump 165/3
    43.4 bowled him! De Villiers advanced as Swann sent down a non-turner, it dipped late on the batsman, who played across the line and the ball skittered through low to thump into the base of off stump. Swann gets his man after an over's reprieve 230/4

    0.2 gone! What a start for South Africa. Tsotsobe produces a superb yorker which spears under Cook's bat and takes out the off stump. 0/1

    15.5 a beauty bowls Bell! Peterson gave it a rip, the ball pitching in line with off and straightening sharply, Bell played inside the line and had his off stump pegged back. It was very similar to the ball from Patel that shaved Amla's off stump ... but a smidge better, obviously 77/3
    11.4 scooped hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh towards long leg ... and Elgar takes a fantastic catch over his shoulder to remove Trott! It looked like he had misjudged it, having come in off the rope, but backpedalled quickly and hurled himself full length to get his hands underneath it. Very composed, ahem, from Elgar 64/2
    17.6 oh, gone! Bopara slaps a rank long hop straight to extra-cover! He'll be joining the queue to kick himself after that dismissal, having apparently played himself in only to thump a loose delivery down the throat of Faf du Plessis 90/4
    33.4 gone! That's the game you'd think. Morgan can't believe it as he pulls a short ball straight to deep midwicket. Not Morgan's most fluent innings by a long way. Good work from AB de Villiers with the field setting 159/6
    23.3 more turn for Elgar and that's done for Kieswetter, caught at slip via a deflection off AB! Kieswetter tried to close the face to leg, was done by the spin and the ball kissed the back of the bat, de Villiers couldn't take it but Smith was alert as the ball popped up off the keeper's gloves 118/5
    40.4 plays back to a length ball and gone, nicks off! A feisty last-wicket stand is ended by Morkel, bowling a tight line on off, Patel was stuck on the crease and prodded at the ball to be caught at the wicket - which means South Africa win by 80 runs 207/10
    34.1 gone...that didn't last long. Bresnan drives at a full ball around off stump and sends a regulation edge to AB de Villiers 159/7
    34.3 and another...Swann plays a flat-footed drive outside off and sends another edge to the keeper 159/8
    37.4 shambolic running and Anderson goes, run out at the bowler's end after failing to respond to Patel's call. Anderson turned it off his legs, de Villiers gave chase and the No. 10 called "no" with Patel already halfway down. If Anderson had gone to start with, he would have made it but in the end is half a yard short 170/9
