    5.5 slashed over gully, in the air but it bounces wide of third man, Roy wants a second... Morkel gets the return in hard and flat over the stumps, de Kock breaks the bails smartly and then throws for the non-striker's end as well, seemingly doubting whether he had managed to beat Roy. But a quick check upstairs confirms Roy's bat was millimetresshort! He's run himself out! 36/1
    26.2 top edge, and gone! A short ball from Rabada, pulled aggressively but not middled, and that spiralled high down to Morkel on the edge of the rope. Another fine innings from a man who is back to form for England 161/2
    42.6 oh no, Root and Stokes are standing together mid-pitch... This has not gone to plan. Root spanked a drive into the stumps at the non-striker's end, set off, stuttered, called again as the ball ricocheted to short midwicket - Stokes then started and stopped as Wiese hared after it and de Kock has a simple job to complete the run-out 269/5
    26.5 turned off the hip, and Buttler falls first ball! A brilliant take by Duminy at leg gully, scooped low as it flew hard 162/3
    33.6 flat-footed slap, and Morgan's scratchy innings is brought to a merciful end. Never remotely adjusted to the changing pace of the wicket, a miscued hoick to Amla at short midwicket 187/4
    47.2 leans back and attempts to smack the ball into Pretoria... but he picks out long-off! A lively intervention from Stokes, keeping England's legs whirring, but they are beginning to look like Wile E Coyote after run over a cliff edge 291/7
    45.6 on the hip and Moeen flicks it sweetly... but straight towards deep backward square leg, where Amla dives to take an excellent tumbling catch! Morkel gets a wicket with his final delivery and England are dragged ever closer to earth 284/6
    47.3 two in two, Jordan sends it down the throat of deep extra cover! Canny slower ball from Abbott, anticipating the big shot and Jordan lemming-ed it straight to the man on the fence. England could get bowled out here 291/8
