    16.1 gone! He's got Amla. Something that England have found hard to do this summer. Was a full delivery which nipped back into Amla as he went for a drive and it takes an inside edge into leg stump 73/2

    8.4 advances and gone, bowled! Looks like Anderson rolled his fingers over the ball, again Smith's impatience got the better of him and he missed tried to pull through the on side, the ball flipping the leg bail off on its way through 50/1

    30.5 bowled him, a slow legcutter! That's a corker of a delivery from Dernbach and it's his variations that have done for Elgar! The ball came out the back of the hand, pitched on a length and came back in to hit the top of off as Elgar played around it, foxed by the lack of pace and now back in the chicken coop himself 141/5
    25.2 gone! Trying to repeat the flicks over midwicket he played in the last over but this time gets the shot too straight down the ground which allows Ian Bell to steady himself under the catch 120/3
    26.2 gone! Du Plessis went too far across his stumps and loses his leg stump. He went down the pitch and outside off, the ball was angling towards the leg side and du Plessis missed his flick. 122/4
    41.2 strikes this time, though. Big wicket. Duminy comes down the pitch and tries to clear the straight boundary but gets it higher rather than longer and Ian Bell settles under his second catch, this time at long-off, although it didn't go in cleanly 195/7
    32.5 got him this time, edged to the keeper! Three in three for Dernbach to Parnell, the edges got progressively thinner and this one ended up comfortably in Kieswetter's bread basket. Parnell fails to make the most of his lives and England have taken the box seat in this game 155/6

    44.3 another one goes...a good delivery from Anderson. Full on off stump, the ball holds its line, and Steyn played all around it. Jimmy will have enjoyed that. 203/8
    46.3 cleaned up! Another for Anderson. Came into Morkel from round the wicket and scooted between bat and pad to take middle and off stump 211/9
    46.4 given lbw! Tsotsobe uses the review that's left. May as well. Was trapped on the back foot. Maybe going over? He's not hit it. Just clipping the top of leg stump so that will stay on the field. 211/10

    16.4 gone! That's what pressure does. Another short ball from Peterson and Cooks it straight down the throat of deep midwicket. Pretty ordinary from the England captain. South Africa rewarded for tight overs 61/2

    2.3 full and straight and gone! Steyn is bang on to Bell and a review won't save him ... He was hit low on the pad, trying to play across the line and it's a good job he didn't resort to DRS because that was hitting middle and leg 14/1
    46.5 he won't see England home. Feels for a ball outside off going across him and gets a thin edge to de Villiers. 207/6
    17.6 edged, he's given! Bopara reviews it. There was a sound. He reviewed straight away. No asking. Well, no mark on Hot Spot. There is certainly a sound. This will be interesting. Is there conclusive evidence to overrule? It stays out, Bopara isn't happy but under the DRS that is the correct decision. The third umpire, Taufel, said there was a clear sound and wasn't enough evidence to overrule. 64/3
    37.5 slog-sweeps across the line and skied high into the air, Peterson steadies himself underneath it to complete the catch! Though he then let the ball slip out of his hand as he went to throw it back into the air in celebration, causing Morgan to linger ... but after a brief consultation between the umpires, he is rightly told to be on his way 172/4
    41.6 that's some poor cricket from England...Trott worked a full ball to mid-on and the throw to de Villiers is good enough to catch Kieswetter well short despite a dive 189/5
