    30.2 oh Quinny... cleaned up having a yahoo! Rashid strikes again! Grip and spin for the leggie, who's got his snap back, from all appearances... Leg stump uprooted and South Africa's captain is dislodged. Big wicket for England, de Kock falling short of a truly match-shaping score 140/4
    7.5 got him, just clips the bail on its way through! Nobody was sure what had happened for a moment... a fraction full of a length, it came in off the seam to burst between bat and pad, and clipped the top of the bail, very gently dislodging it to give Mahmood his first ODI wicket on debut! 23/1
    20.3 similar line, similar result - but this is the googly, and it's given! Rashid gets his man, although Bavuma decides to review, which looks optimistic on the replays. Skidding on rather than straightening and Bavuma was all at sea trying to play it, beaten past the inside edge and Hawk-Eye has it smashing the top of middle and leg stump. There's a brief delay, with the batsman told to wait by the boundary edge - Aleem Dar, the third umpire, seemed to want another look at whether there was bat involved. But the conclusion is no, nothing on it, off you go Temba! 89/2
    21.5 bowled him, no arguments about this one! Fired in and Rassie has gone back, trying to punch down the ground, only to have his timbers toppled. Moeen's turn to celebrate this time, and the DRS won't come into it, thank the gods 94/3
    34.6 full and straight, looks to work through midwicket where Banton makes a good diving stop... and now there's a huge mix-up, and I think Smuts has been run out at the keeper's end! Calamity for South Africa, never a run there and Miller sent Smuts back when he was halfway down. Banton's throw wasn't a direct hit, but good enough for Bairstow to gather and break the stumps 155/5

    42.2 brings out the reverse, very full, struck on the pad and given! Looked dead, but Phehlukwayo reviews... didn't pick the googly, struck the front pad. Was there any glove on it? Doesn't look like it, according to UltraEdge. Ball-tracking confirms it was clipping leg stump, so we'll stay with the on-field call and Phehlukwayo has to depart! 188/6
    44.5 googly, tucked out into the gap at straight midwicket. Rashid gives chase off his own bowling. They decide to come back for a second and Morgan runs to the non-striker's end, gathers the throw cleanly, and calmly breaks the stumps with Hendricks way short of his ground! 204/7

    7.5 short and he pulls from wide of off, big top edge... swallowed by Ngidi at short fine leg! South Africa have another, aggression the undoing of both England openers once again. Roy was back and set for the short ball, but Hendricks pushed it further across him, and he was never in control of an ugly swipe 69/2
    6.2 bit of inward movement as Bairstow throws the hands... squirted to midwicket! Breakthrough for South Africa, and it's Sipamla who stops the rampaging Yorkshireman. Wasn't really there for the drive, YJB went after it anyway only to see the bat turn in the hands and pop a simple catch to the edge of the ring 61/1
    25.2 caught at leg slip! That's why he was in there! Root falls for 49... slightly full of a length, turning down the leg side, tried to tickle it around the corner while camped on the back foot and Bavuma takes an excellent catch in close 162/4
    11.1 skips down, done by the length - Hendricks scoops the catch in his follow-through! Trying to assert himself but Morgan departs, the ball hit the splice of the bat and just popped back to the bowler. Another self-inflicted wound for England, and this chase is just starting to wobble 86/3
    36.4 full, carved up and over the covers... but he picks out the man running in from the rope! Denly won't see England home, though he's done most of the hard work. A bit of respite for Ngidi, though caught deep extra cover probably isn't exactly the dismissal he dreams of 232/5
    37.1 another one goes, South Africa still scrapping away! Extra bounce, flicks the glove on its way through! Hendricks claims his third wicket, excellent line and just doing enough from round the wicket. Banton walks, and we might have a game on 232/6

    38.6 Curran fazed, spoons his next ball straight up, taken by Bavuma in the covers! Seemed like the previous delivery was playing on his mind, flapped at a drive and England lose their seventh wicket 241/7
    42.2 gottim, edged behind! Ngidi strikes again, South Africa can dream... Rashid was hopping on the back foot, trying to work it off his body but only succeeding in grazing the bat through to de Kock! They can't, can they?! 252/8
