View dismissal HM Amla b Topley 4 8 8 1 0 50.00
2.2 gottim, off stump rattled! Amla is bowled off his pads, he's not enjoyed this angle of attack and Topley gets one through his defences, it shaped back but Amla played the wrong line, past the outside edge and flicking the back leg - would have been plumb lbw if the ball hadn't deflected on to off stump. It was actually a cracking ball, looked to be swinging and then nipped away 4/1
View dismissal Q de Kock lbw b Stokes 22 47 33 4 0 66.66
10.4 on the stumps, straightening a touch and de Kock misses playing across the line... Dharmasena gives it! The batsman is going to review and only the matter of whether it pitched outside leg can save him now, you feel. It's definitely homing in on the stumps - and Hawk-Eye has it just pitching in line! De Kock's appeal fails, he's been dismissed for the first time in the series and Ben Stokes has made something happen for his team again 53/2
View dismissal F du Plessis c Jordan b Rashid 46 76 48 4 1 95.83
19.5 pitches, grips, edged, gone! Du Plessis tried to angle his shot into the leg side, he was seduced by the drift but beaten by the spin as that one took a leading outside edge, for Jordan to tumble well and gather at slip! 98/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Jordan b Stokes 73 117 91 4 1 80.21
40.4 full and dispatched high into the leg side... hang on, that's coming down with ice on it, and Jordan makes the catch! Brilliant work, running back to take a steepler over his shoulder, diving full length - never in doubt with that man. AB has been gunned down just as he looked to be getting going 205/4
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Topley 47 83 66 2 0 71.21
41.1 pitched up and Duminy is hit on the pads, aiming a drive down the ground... and given! Looked a little leg side but SA used their review for de Kock's dismissal so Duminy will have to drag himself away. Yes, Hawk-Eye shows the ball missing leg stump, not a great decision but, in this case, the umpire's word is final 206/5
View dismissal RR Rossouw c †Buttler b Topley 11 23 11 2 0 100.00
43.6 beats him on the inside, Buttler sprawls to take the catch low to his right... Topley appeals, Morgan likes it and England decide to review. Lots of high fives among the England players but Rossouw is calling for new gloves... Who's right? The ball was full and swinging in, Rossouw chopped down on it, possibly the sound was the bat hitting the ground. Can't see an obvious deflection and Ultra Edge is struggling to differentiate between the ball passing the bat and the bat hitting the ground. Think this will stay not out... But what do I know! Given, caught behind! 225/6
F Behardien not out 23 48 26 1 0 88.46
View dismissal K Rabada c Morgan b Topley 12 16 10 1 0 120.00
47.3 slower ball, Rabada swipes at it... top-edged to backward point! Smartly bowled, out the back of the hand and anticipating the attempt to go hard at the ball, looped up tamely to Morgan pedaling back to his right 245/7

View dismissal JJ Roy b Abbott 14 11 13 3 0 107.69
2.6 nailed him! That is just the sweetest dismissal for a fast bowler, full length, fast, nipping off the seam and steam-rollering through the gate as Roy propped forward in an otherwise impeccable forward defence! The gap was there for a fraction of a second, and he dived straight through it like Indiana Jones rolling under a cave door 20/1
View dismissal AD Hales c †de Kock b Abbott 99 179 124 8 0 79.83
41.2 short, pulled, gloved ... on my Lord, what has Hales done?! It took an eternity for the finger to go up but his guilty look probably pulled his own trigger! A lobbed chance to de Kock as Hales grabbed at his chance for three figures, and well, that non-jinxy statement has had its non-intended non-effect! 202/5
View dismissal JE Root b Abbott 38 93 64 2 0 59.37
25.5 on the move, tucked up, angled bat... and Root plays on! South Africa have their breakthrough and it's Abbott again! The Gopher of Economy has morphed into the Woodchuck of Penetration, he perhaps saw Root coming and dropped short, cramped him for space and he could only deflect the ball down on to his stumps 117/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c de Villiers b Morkel 29 43 28 1 2 103.57
34.3 a massive mow as Morgan is fractionally deceived by a slower ball, Morkel rolls his fingers down the side of the ball, de Villiers steadies himself at deep midwicket, and takes a vital breakthrough catch! 169/3
View dismissal BA Stokes b Morkel 0 11 6 0 0 0.00
36.4 bowled him! Stokes hasn't looked comfortable at all in this innings, the slower deck working against him perhaps. Morkel angles one across the left-hander, cramping him for room outside off, and the ball doesn't get up much, cannons off the inside edge and into the stumps! 176/4
