    26.6 this time he's gone! The ball after being given a life and it's almost an action replay...Amla plays early and is done by a lack of pace and a touch of tennis-ball bounce, this time the chance goes to short cover where Strauss holds on 131/4
    5.6 there's the breakthrough, good line outside off, Smith pushes with a half-open face and sends a comfortable edge to first slip...he was trying to steer that to third man, but the ball was too close to him 27/1
    8.3 that's a Collingwood special...he marks becoming England's most capped ODI player by pulling off a blinder at backward point as de Villiers cuts in the air. It came out of the middle, but Collingwood dived to his left and got both hands to the catch...that's a wicket for the fielder 38/2
    23.2 big breakthrough for England...Wright rewarded for a probing spell as Duminy pushes outside off and gets a thin, low edge through to Matt Prior. Like Smith, he was trying to find third man and pays the price 111/3
    43.4 gone! Timely breakthrough from Bresnan, a good delivery beats Petersen as he looks to guide the ball away and clips the top of the stumps 205/7
    32.4 the bowling change works, as McLaren goes for a flashy drive well outside off stump but can only feather one through to Prior 155/5
    36.2 great catch! dragged down from Collingwod and Morkel's swipe to deep square-leg is slightly mistimed. Morgan timed his jump perfectly to hold an excellent catch. 165/6

    46.3 gone...England continue to chip away and Anderson collects his third, although it wasn't a great ball as van der Merwe clips a leg-stump delivery straight into the hands of midwicket on the edge of the ring 222/8
    48.6 well, the extra ball allows him to end with a wicket as Steyn tries to heave over midwicket and doesn't get any real distance on the shot 242/9
