View dismissal CA Ingram lbw b Anderson 0 2 5 0 0 0.00
0.5 straightens on him this time and rapped on the knee roll, gone! Anderson only needs two cards to trick Ingram, a huge outswinger followed up by a length ball that holds its line on middle and leg, the bat was late coming down to join the pad and up goes the finger. Ingram looks at Amla momentarily before sloping off without asking for a review 1/1
View dismissal HM Amla c †Buttler b Finn 1 9 3 0 0 33.33
1.4 86.1 mph, tries to pull out and it clips the toe, brilliant catch by Buttler, they've got Amla too! Finn's extra pace probably key here, the ball shaping away on a good length outside off, Amla knew he didn't want to play at it but with his twirly backlift couldn't quite draw the bat out of the way, just a small deflection and it went low to Buttler's right where he snagged it securely. England are in clover! 4/2
View dismissal RJ Peterson lbw b Anderson 30 44 41 4 0 73.17
10.5 86.7 mph, attacks the stumps this time, hit on the knee and given! Having repeatedly pulled Peterson across his wicket with the ball that leaves him, Anderson pitched this one full and straight - hit in front of middle, the only question was whether it would have gone on with angle past leg stump but Peterson decides against reviewing after a few words with du Plessis. England have pinched out the pinch-hitter 45/3
View dismissal F du Plessis c †Buttler b Tredwell 26 79 39 3 0 66.66
18.4 56.7 mph, quicker ball, flashes hard and scrapes the edge and Buttler takes it! South Africa are six down! Du Plessis moved across outside off, Tredwell seemed to dart it through a little wider in response, the bat came through late and the set du Plessis falls 70/6
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† c †Buttler b Broad 0 12 9 0 0 0.00
13.4 86.6 mph, full and wide, de Villiers plays a filthy swat and nicks off! Broad is charging around with his finger in the air - they check for the no-ball but it's about a mile behind the line, compared to the Williamson dismissal the other day. It was another cross-seam delivery, not sure what de Villiers was thinking, he flung a horizontal bat out and the under-edge was audible. He drags himself away, leaving his side in real trouble 50/4
View dismissal JP Duminy b Tredwell 3 13 11 0 0 27.27
16.5 52.4 mph, played on, Tredwell gets Duminy after all! There wasn't room for the cut, it was an offbreak that skidded on and cramped him for room, Duminy hasn't looked comfortable against spin and he cannons a bottom edge on to the stumps 63/5
DA Miller not out 56 98 51 5 2 109.80
View dismissal R McLaren run out (Trott) 1 8 5 0 0 20.00
20.2 from Tredwell, down the wicket, comes off the pad to slip, appeal for lbw but McLaren is out of his ground and Trott is very aware of that and runs him out with a little underarm throw. Superb work. McLaren skipped down the wicket, got beaten trying to play to leg and then couldn't get back into his ground quick enough as Trott hit the stumps directly 76/7
View dismissal CH Morris c †Buttler b Tredwell 3 9 6 0 0 50.00
22.3 52.6 mph, slider outside off, played forward and nicked behind, another one falls and it's Tredwell again, floating one up nicely just outside off, Morris came forward again but the delivery slid on and feathered his outside edge on the way through to Buttler 80/8
View dismissal RK Kleinveldt c †Buttler b Broad 43 69 61 4 1 70.49
38.3 86.5 mph, back of a length, a touch down the leg side, Buttler takes off and takes a fine catch and England end a very annoying stand that might have brought South Africa back into the game. It was banged in again by Broad, Kleinveldt couldn't get inside the line and gloved it to give Buttler the chance to take a fine catch 175/9
View dismissal LL Tsotsobe c †Buttler b Broad 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
38.4 72.5 mph, another bumper, ducked but also a touch on this and given out caught behind and Broad has wrapped things up nicely in two balls, couldn't duck under the short ball and Buttler takes his sixth catch of the innings, another little glove through to the keeper 175/10

View dismissal AN Cook* c †de Villiers b Morris 6 25 21 0 0 28.57
6.2 86.4 mph, short but not quite short enough to pull, Cook gets tucked up and feathers a bottom edge through to the keeper - Morris strikes! Good pace from Morris, that last over to Cook was very tight and he seemed to want to force the pace, ended up playing a crooked swipe and nicking off 22/1
View dismissal IR Bell c †de Villiers b Kleinveldt 20 44 30 2 0 66.66
10.6 82.1 mph, touch shorter, in the channel, Bell gets a flick on it, another catch at the wicket! Familiar story Bell, who gets in and the out, not a delivery that did a great deal, though Kleinveldt hits the deck hard and it got up off a length, Bell opened the face and glided it straight to the keeper 41/2
IJL Trott not out 82 134 84 11 0 97.61
View dismissal JE Root b Duminy 48 90 71 7 0 67.60
31.6 53.5 mph, goes to paddle sweep, misses and loses his leg stump beaten by a little turn and it came off the thigh pad into leg stump. An unnecessary dismissal but a fine hand from Root. He just got a bit too far outside off stump and by the time the ball turned inside him Root was leaning across for it and the paddle sweep missed 146/3
