    9.2 a yawning lofted drive, looking to clear long on, but no! Roy knew he'd muffed the stroke the moment he played it, a scudding flat catch straight to Hendricks, set back at long-on. The end of a threatening innings, and respite for South Africa 51/1
    10.2 crashed to mid-off, and both openers are gone! Another attempt to loft one over the straight fielders, and again, he's clothed the shot, off the bottom of the bat and straight to a tumbling Sipamla 53/2
    15.3 Morgan advances to sweep, excellent connection, but a brilliant intercept at backward square, and here's trouble! Root is committed to the single, turns on his heel, but van der Dussen gets to his knees quickly, and pings out the middle stump from 30 yards! That is outstanding work, and Root knows he's a goner, as do the fielders! A moment of inspiration, and can that spark South Africa? 83/3
    15.6 gone, Bavuma grabs it in the slips and South Africa are jubilant! Length ball, Morgan dropped deep in his crease looking to steer it down to third man, got a thin edge on it and Bavuma, diving low to his left, takes a sharp chance. England wobbling... 83/4
    49.2 mowed off a good length ... it's gone high, high, and higher ... It's another slower ball, and Denly's bat face closes on impact ... the man in the deep steadies himself, and ends a fantastic, momentum-changing innings 254/8
    21.5 looks to slog sweep, struck on the pad, and given! Shamsi is off on his travels in celebration, Imran Tahir-style, but after a chat with Denly, Banton decides to review. Struck on the back thigh, kneeling down - the same height as the knee roll on his front pad. Impact is umpire's call - only a tiny fraction away from being outside the line - and crashing into the top of off stump, which means Banton is on his way! 108/5

    27.5 bowled round his legs, would you believe it?! Not a huge amount of spin, Curran got down to sweep early after seeing it head down the leg side, and just a hint of turn is enough for it to thud into leg stump and send him packing! Shamsi roars in celebration... what a spell this is turning into! 131/6
    44.1 full length, in the slot, punched on the up, and Sipamla has his maiden wicket! Woakes gave himself some room, but couldn't get the elevation. Mid-off pouches, and a very fine partnership is broken! 222/7

    35.1 ha, bowled him! What do I know?! Fired in with a round arm from round the wicket, de Kock looked to hammer a slog-sweep over midwicket, couldn't connect, and it slides on to crash into leg stump! A superb innings comes to a tame end 198/2
    6.6 edged, and gone! Back of a length outside off, a hint of extra bounce. Hendricks looked to force it through the covers with a booming drive and it got big on him. Bairstow takes the catch behind the stumps, and England have their first wicket. 25/1

    42.4 struck in front, and Bavuma's gone for 98! Would you believe it?! He's reviewed it, but I reckon this looked pretty adjacent. Pinned dead in front, looking to work into the leg side. Hung back in his crease to a cutter, it didn't get up much from a length, and ball-tracking confirms it would have hit middle-and-leg. Temba departs! 234/3
