View dismissal D Elgar c †Bairstow b Ali 46 188 122 5 0 37.70
41.2 53.7 mph, he's done it! A fiddle outside off and a thin edge. Was a reasonably short delivery, straightened off the surface which makes Elgar play away from his body. 117/2
View dismissal S van Zyl c †Bairstow b Stokes 21 78 47 4 0 44.68
17.3 81.0 mph, Stokes has the breakthrough and it's a Botham-esque rank-bad-ball breakthrough! Another innocuous loosener, van Zyl responds with a flaccid half-formed pull, a spiralling top-edge and Bairstow jogs up to smother the offering in his mitts! Stokes shakes his head in bemusement. I think he's still half-asleep to be honest ... 44/1
View dismissal HM Amla c †Bairstow b Finn 40 123 90 7 0 44.44
44.3 86.4 mph, that is too good from Finn! Even Hashim Amla has no answer to an absolute ripper that angles in, nips away, flicks the edge, and had it not done so, it would have taken out his off pole instead. Completely unplayable and what a breakthrough 127/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c †Bairstow b Stokes 36 61 40 4 1 90.00
55.5 79.7 mph, huge moment! Stokes has done it again. De Villiers gloves a pull down the leg side. A short delivery, angling down the leg side, de Villiers tries to help it on its way to fine leg but only gets a very thin graze through to Bairstow - his fourth catch of the day. 161/4
View dismissal F du Plessis c Hales b Finn 16 79 57 2 0 28.07
62.5 82.5 mph, my goodness, what's he done! Clipped it straight to deep square! It's a short of a length delivery, angling into his hip, he deliberately flicks it on the up and couldn't have picked out the man better. Du Plessis didn't even try to keep that down. Did he not spot the deep fielder? 185/5
View dismissal T Bavuma run out (sub [CR Woakes]/†Bairstow) 23 66 44 3 0 52.27
70.5 Broad to Vilas, oh dear! South Africa play a part in their downfall again. Vilas squeezed a full ball just wide of mid-on, he seemed to want the single straightaway. Bavuma was slow in setting off. Bairstow does brilliantly well to gather the take - the throw came from Chris Woakes - wide of the stumps and get the ball back having sprinted in from his position 212/6
View dismissal DJ Vilas c Ali b Broad 26 50 38 4 0 68.42
74.4 84.8 mph, no need to delve after all! A horrid wipe of a pull shot, spiralling high and fast down to Moeen Ali at deep backward square. A well-judged catch as the ball tumbles out of the thin Highveld air. Another South Africa batsman does the hard work then gives it away ... 225/7
View dismissal CH Morris c †Bairstow b Broad 28 93 61 4 0 45.90
92.6 81.9 mph, that's the one. Full, bending away, Morris drives a touch too loosely, snicks an almost imperceptible edge, and Bairstow has a five-for behind the stumps! 281/8
View dismissal K Rabada c †Bairstow b Anderson 24 81 64 2 1 37.50
93.3 85.0 mph, nibble off the deck, Rabada follows it, Bairstow snaffles his sixth, and Anderson celebrates with the joy and relief of a strike bowler who has toiled for 22 overs without reward 281/9
GC Viljoen not out 20 32 16 4 0 125.00
View dismissal M Morkel c Cook b Stokes 12 29 20 1 0 60.00
99.3 78.7 mph, and Stokes has struck first ball! You have got to laugh, although Anderson will not see the funny side of that. A wafty drive to a ball angled in from round the wicket, and Cook pockets a neat chance in front of his nose 313/10

View dismissal AN Cook* c †Vilas b Viljoen 18 46 27 0 0 66.66
10.1 81.2 mph, wicket first ball! What a start. Cook is caught down the leg side again. Viljoen probably didn't plan that delivery, but South Africa have targeted him there. Went to glance it away and it was well taken by Vilas. Unconfined joy for Viljoen. What a moment. 22/2
View dismissal AD Hales c de Villiers b Rabada 1 16 10 0 0 10.00
3.5 86.1 mph, there's the first wicket! Rabada gets it spot on. Full at off stump, Hales is driving without footwork and the thick edge presents a nice catch for second slip. Good bowling, iffy shot 10/1
View dismissal NRD Compton c Elgar b Rabada 26 93 68 4 0 38.23
25.1 88.7 mph, edged and gone this time! Outside off, drawing the stroke where Compton might otherwise have left it alone. A fractional hint of movement away from the bat lured the shot, and that is a vital blow 74/3
View dismissal JE Root c †Vilas b Rabada 110 214 139 17 0 79.13
54.6 85.8 mph, a massive wafty drive to a fine seaming delivery that nips back off the pitch, and Root has been given out, caught behind off the inside-edge! He has immediately reviewed! But he's not going to get away with that, there's a clear snick on Snicko, and England's centurion is on his way back! 242/6
View dismissal JWA Taylor c Bavuma b Morkel 7 26 13 1 0 53.84
30.1 83.7 mph, and strikes first ball! Caught at short leg. Superb from Bavuma. Back of a length from Morkel, Taylor trying to get forward and a big inside edge flies off the pad towards Bavuma. It's above his head, it thrusts his right hand up and parries the ball then settles under the rebound. He is quite deep in that position, and it worked perfectly 91/4
View dismissal BA Stokes c & b Morkel 58 78 54 9 1 107.40
45.6 84.7 mph, Morkel strikes back! An attempted clip to leg, a leading edge, and Morkel runs through in his followthrough to snaffle the looping chance! A heart-stopping check for the no-ball, but his foot was almost entirely behind the line this time 202/5
View dismissal JM Bairstow c van Zyl b Rabada 45 152 84 5 0 53.57
76.1 82.1 mph, five for Rabada! Bairstow tries to go over the leg side, pulls at a short-of-a-length delivery, gets it high off the bat and it's a simple catch for midwicket 323/10
View dismissal MM Ali c †Vilas b Morris 19 47 28 3 0 67.85
64.3 86.6 mph, stunning catch from Vilas! Outside off, Moeen pushed loosely from the crease, found a fat inside edge, and the keeper was sufficiently alert to transfer his weight, lean across to the right and snaffle the offering in one hand! 279/7
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Rabada 12 35 28 0 0 42.85
71.5 83.2 mph, he gets this one right! Back on target, lovely delivery. Full and straight, Broad misses it - from very deep in the crease, maybe expecting a short one - and the off stump gets rattled. They check the no-ball, but's just okay 309/8
View dismissal ST Finn c †Vilas b Morkel 0 12 9 0 0 0.00
73.6 85.3 mph, huge appeal appeal for caught behind, given not out and South Africa review straightaway. A glove, maybe? A well-directed short ball around off stump. Close to shoulder of the bat and glove. It might have clipped the thumb of the glove. And Ultraedge has confirmed the flick of the glove. Good review, excellent bowling. Finn couldn't quite get out of the line quickly enough. 311/9

7.5 85.2 mph, beauty! Elgar nibbles at one that is slightly wider than he might have expected to follow, but he was sucked in by the line, the bounce and the movement. Bairstow reaches across first slip to gather his seventh of the match. A big scalp! 23/1

11.6 87.7 mph, gone! And that has been telegraphed I'm afraid! Drawn forward by a fractionally fuller delivery, but still that sharp lift and movement to turn a comfortable forward defence into a spliced edge to gully! 28/2
View dismissal HM Amla c Taylor b Broad 5 37 20 0 0 25.00
15.3 84.7 mph, on the pads, belted towards Taylor's toes, and short leg has clung onto a blinder! My goodness me, what a take that was. Amla timed the pants off a leg glance, it was heading down all the way, but Taylor stayed low (his forte, some might say), actually got himself into a long barrier, and pocketed it millimetres from the turf! 31/4

13.5 87.4 mph, de Villiers joins the procession, and Broad has three! What a massive scalp that is. Thumpingly good length, just outside off, jagging back sharply to graze the inside edge as AB is committed to coming forward. Bairstow, that man again, has an eighth catch, and South Africa have a major hole in their innings! 30/3

33.1 81.0 mph, he's ended it with a stunning return catch! That man Broad, again. Du Plessis comes down the pitch, tries something aggressive, gets an inside edge into his pads which loops back down the pitch and Broad does brilliantly to scramble to it from his followthrough - one-handed, low to his right. Had to go against his natural run-off 83/10
View dismissal T Bavuma b Broad 0 11 8 0 0 0.00
17.5 81.2 mph, cripes! Bavuma has over-slept and been bowled, and Broad has five! Another short ball from Broad, but it didn't get up as much as anticipated. A faint brush of glove, a deflection onto off stump, and South Africa are in utter tatters! 35/5
