    19.1 edged and finally England take a chance as Smith top edges a pull through to the keeper. It was a quick bumper that surprised Smith a little, he got in no position to pull to leg and was late on the stroke and got a healthy top edge that Kieswetter took above his head 68/1

    24.3 cleaned him up! Bit of surprise this, Bopara has tailed one past the attempted off drive of Amla and scattered his stumps. Full and straight, moved in a little and Amla, driving a little loosely was done between bat and pad, middle and leg skittled 100/2
    25.3 beautifully bowled and Duminy is done like a kipper floated up, Duminy is drawn out of his ground, doesn't get to the pitch and the turn past the attempted flick provides the simplest of stumping chances for Kieswetter, superbly bowled by Tredwell 106/3
    40.4 advances to play an expansive drive and is stumped! Tredwell maybe dragged the line a bit wider, pushed it through a bit quicker and Kieswetter was quick to pull off his second stumping, de Villiers unable to get his big toe back across the line 166/5
    28.4 back to guide to third man and played on trying to run it down to third man, tried to play it like de Villiers but forgot his name is Faf, inside edge onto the stump, almost got down on one knee there and again Bopara's drift into the right hander is decisive 115/4
    48.5 short, goes for the pull and gets a glove to the keeper. Tried to help a slower-ball bouncer around the corner but got there too early and provided a simple chance to Kieswetter 214/7
    43.2 more big turn and another stumping. Once again Tredwell draws a batsman to drive outside off, the turn beats the outside edge, the back foot slips outside the popping crease and Kieswetter does the rest, lovely stuff from Tredwell 174/6

    48.6 angled in and comes off the pads, cry for lbw, it runs to third man and as they come back for the second, third man has thrown down the stumps and Ryan McLaren is gone. Great work from Dernbach charging in off the boundary, a low, flat throw connects and finally England do something right in the field 215/8

    0.6 Steyn has struck, trapping Cook right in front of off stump! The ball pitched in line, snaked back in on that low trajectory that Steyn generates and rapped into the knee roll, pretty straightforward decision and, just like at West End, England lose their captain in the first over of their chase 2/1
    43.2 edged and caught behind, a good catch too from de Villiers. It was banged in short, Bell looked to slap it away on the off side, it might have bounced a touch more than he was bargaining for and Bell got a thin top edge and flew high to de Villiers who reached up with a right mitt and held on 186/4

    31.5 out, given lbw on review! The ball was looped up on leg stump and Trott missed with a sweep, was hit on the pad but umpire Taufel shook his head to the initial appeal. South Africa turned to DRS and replays showed the delivery pitching in line and straightening enough to go on and hit leg stump 143/2
    35.4 prods outside off and edged through to the keeper! Bopara falls in single figures again, his ODI summer of two halves continuing with a tame shot to a length ball in the corridor outside off 156/3
