END OF OVER:

Well, that was exciting, but sadly, the grand finale was cut off in its prime. Nevertheless, check out Andrew McGlashan's bulletin, as well as the gallery. And, of course, return to Cricinfo on Sunday for the second Twenty20. From Andrews Miller and McGlashan, it's good night.

9.15pm No, they cannot. The rain has returned and the match has been called off. And the official result is that England have won by 1 run, thanks to Messrs Duckworth and Lewis.

9.05pm Well well, I think we've got something resembling good news. The covers are coming off and the SuperSoppers are going to work. Can they get on before the rain returns?

9pm There is lightning lurking around the ground, which doesn't bode well for a resumption. But the umpires are in the middle, having a look, and chatting to the groundsmen.

8.50pm Now then, England control the game, but the weather is starting to ease, so there might be a chance of a resumption. We'll keep you posted. There is about a half-hour window to get the match going again.

And now it really is bucketing down! The covers are coming on, and dare one say it, South Africa might just have produced another Duckworth-Lewis cock-up ... plenty time for the weather to change of course, but de Villiers and Morkel only went after singles in that over. One big hit would have put them clear

12.6

Anderson to de Villiers, 1 run, swished out to midwicket, and Anderson has clawed England into the D/L ascendancy. What drama
12.5
1
Anderson to Morkel, 1 run, on the pads this time, and cut off at square leg
12.4
0
Anderson to Morkel, no run, nips away off the seam, and evades the swipe
12.4
1w
Anderson to Morkel, 1 wide, slower-ball bouncer, and that's called wide, much to Anderson's chagrin

The D/L par for this over is 128.

12.3
1
Anderson to de Villiers, 1 run, carved into the deep, another single
12.2

Anderson to Morkel, 1 run, great shot, better stop. Rubbish ball, mind you, but a certain four was intercepted by a diving Cook at point
