    17.3 full and straight, and Amla is gone! He tried to run the ball through third man, but the ball got big on him, and deflected down into the base of the stumps! 75/2
    14.1 that's a stinking delivery! Perfect length, spitting turn and bounce, Prior gathers well, up by his armpit, and the umpires review because they can tell what on earth has happened ... Looks as though there was the thinnest slither of glove on the ball as he fizzed by ... yes, there quite clearly was. This will be given out ... surely? The wait is eternal. Well, the umpires made a meal of it, but the right decision was reached in the end 63/1
    19.2 edged, and did that carry? Yes, Prior says it did, and that's another one down! Width again, Kallis chased it, and suddenly, this one isn't quite over ... 82/3
    31.6 Anderson has bowled him, I think! Yes, he has! de Villiers left alone outside off, the ball zipped through to the keeper, who caught it safely but belatedly noticed the bails were on the ground! Replays prove that Anderson just snicked the top of off, and that is a massive wicket 124/4
    32.2 instant panic as Swann comes back into the attack! A flick off the toes, a sharp piece of work at short leg, and du Plessis' headless-chicken run leaves him well out of the frame as Prior whips the bails off! 124/5
    33.4 gadzooks, no need for a review on that one! Duminy's off pole has been utterly and totally detonated! Unplayable nut from Anderson, swinging, straightening, flattening! 124/6
    46.2 is there another twist!? Surely not? Bresnan strikes just when England needed it. van Wyk looking to cut but it was too close for the shot, ended up bottom edging onto middle stump 160/8
    36.6 that's the wicket! Outside off, Peterson drives flat-footedly, Prior clings on, and now England really are favourites! 127/7

    47.1 Broad has nailed Steyn here. Full, nipped back a touch and struck flush in front. Looked stone dead, the umpire agreed and despite a review Steyn had to go. 164/9
    47.4 Broad has done it! England take the game! South Africans, don't mention the C-word! Somehow England have pulled off a stunning win having been the wrong side of two close results before. It was full and up there to drive, Morkel aimed a big swing but could only feather through to Prior. Broad has conjured up a stunning final over to win the game, England's fielders are going ballistic, not so knackered anymore! 165/10
