    11.3 homing in on leg stump, Bavuma sweeps but miss-times and he's picked out Moeen Ali at square leg 113/3
    4.1 and Moeen has the breakthrough! Good length on middle, De Kock's eyes lit up as he dropped the knee and drove it down the ground, Joe Denly running in from long-on to take a strong catch 48/1
    10.5 shorter ball, pulled sharply towards square leg and Jonny Bairstow runs in to take a sharp catch. Ben Stokes with the breakthrough! 111/2
    15.1 length ball, he skies it down the ground, nice catch by Chris Jordan running back from mid-off! 135/4
    18.4 full toss, straight and he's sent that down the throat of Ben Stokes at mid-off! 170/5
    19.6 yorker, on middle stump, he sends it back to the bowler, and Steyn is off. Jordan gathers and effects the run-out at the non-striker's end. Phehlukwayo is out on the last ball of the innings 177/8
    19.1 wow, beautiful death bowling from Jordan! Very full, he tempts Pretorious into a hearty swing, he misses and the ball uproots off-stump! 172/6
    19.2 what?! And another! Full, moving slightly away onto off-stump, and the woodwork is pegged back again. Jordan on a hat-trick! 172/7

    14.2 round the wicket, a monstrously telegraphed slower ball! That was such a caricature dismissal, Roy had time to flap that ball in four or five different directions, instead he chose a toe-end to short fine leg! A fine innings, and ignominious end! 132/3
    2.2 toe-ended to wide mid-off, and it's Steyn 1 Buttler 0! Back of a length from Steyn, Buttler was drawn into the launch over the covers, but he couldn't connect properly, and with that Steyn draws level at the top of South Africa's T20I wickets list! 19/1
    8.5 thumps the back leg, and up goes the finger! It looked leg-sided, but he was a long way back... probably clipping leg at worst... England opt not to review... Jonny might regret that when he gets back to the dressing room. But it's a timely breakthrough. EDIT: Bairstow's was just clipping... the verdict would have stood regardless 91/2
    18.6 holes out to wide long-on, but is it too late? Morgan curses, he didn't need the big shot, but was lured by the full length... cripes, that's close to a no-ball, but I think he's okay... Just! 171/6
    15.3 flicked on the up and straight to deep midwicket! The field was set, two men back, 111kph slower ball, Denly can't control it! And suddenly we have a game! 137/4
    17.4 slapped to wide long-on, and Stokes is gone! Ngidi lands the big fish with a very cunning slower ball, 115kph, offcutter, on a very wide line, forcing Stokes to fetch it and he can't connect properly! 152/5

    19.5 bowled him! A pinpoint off-stump yorker! Moeen plays all round it! The ball dips beneath his loose wafty nothing stroke, in fact he turned it into a yorker with a gallop to the pitch. He hadn't bargained on the offcutter, which perhaps he should have seen coming. And now it's all on Rashid! 175/8
    19.2 in the slot, Curran takes on the midwicket fence, but the wind, the wind! That's gone high, high, high into the floodlights, but sticks in the breeze, and plops into Miller's hands in front of the scoreboard! Ngidi flings his hands high... he's still got a chance to be the hero! 173/7

    19.6 inside-edged drive, into the leg-side ... it's one run, can it be two for the Super Over? No, it can't! The shy comes in, Rashid is dead in the water, and Lungi Ngidi's offcutter pays rich dividends! South Africa defend seven off the final over, to win by one run! 176/9
