JA Morkel to Flintoff, no run, squared up, Flintoff squirts a leading edge towards cover but it just falls short and he and England breathe again

England 83/4   A Flintoff 0* (1b)

Ntini to Flintoff, FOUR, short and pulled in front of midwicket


Ntini to Flintoff, FOUR, drive on the up - lobbing mid-off in the process - but without the distance he was hoping for, and it plugs before finally making the rope


Ntini to Flintoff, no run, outside off, nipping a touch off the seam, the batsman offers a game jab away from his body, but is too late on it and lucky not to get the edge


Ntini to Flintoff, 1 run, walks out to meet the ball which pitches outside off, and drives to cover, calling "Yeahyeahyeah" as he goes. That will be a "yeah", then

England 93/4   A Flintoff 9* (5b 2x4)

JA Morkel to Flintoff, 1 run, outside off and has Philander just dropped the match? Flintoff cut away on the back foot firmly to him inside the cover boundary


JA Morkel to Flintoff, 1 run, on leg, driven out to mid-on to bring up the hundred

England 100/5   A Flintoff 11* (7b 2x4)

Philander to Flintoff, 1 run, down the track, and a thick inside edge is boomed off the back foot - as booming as inside edges get, of course - towards a straight long-on


Philander to Flintoff, 1 run, comes outside his crease down off to meet a fullish ball which he drives back out to mid-off for a comfortable single

England 107/5   A Flintoff 13* (9b 2x4)

van der Wath to Flintoff, 1 run, short, straight and Flintoff backs away, giving himself room to cut off the back foot through the covers


van der Wath to Flintoff, 2 runs, full length, driven inside the deep cover boundary where there are three marshalls keeping it out


van der Wath to Flintoff, no run, terrific ball there, straight and nipping in, Flintoff backing away on the back foot and he was a deceived man


van der Wath to Flintoff, 1 leg bye, down the pitch and Flintoff comes across but can't connect, the ball rapping him on the leg just outside off. No appeal

England 112/5   A Flintoff 16* (13b 2x4)

M Morkel to Flintoff, 1 leg bye, short and Flintoff comes across from outside off and swivels round in trying to pull the ball square


M Morkel to Flintoff, 1 run, backs away and drives to backward point

England 114/6   A Flintoff 17* (15b 2x4)

van der Wath to Flintoff, OUT, came right across again - a familiar effort from him this innings - and he's castled by a straight one, the ball taking the top of off
