    0.5 pushed through again, and that's the breakthrough! Lumb expected it to be tossed up, but instead Botha fired in another quicker one, it struck the pad before he could move, and that was plumb 4/1
    13.3 Kieswetter goes this time, charging into a lofted drive, but he got underneath the stroke a touch, for Steyn at long-on to backpedal into a well-judged catch 113/3
    11.2 and that's a deserved wicket for Botha. On the leg stump, an inside-out sweep, but he can't loft it over leg gully who gathers a simple spooned catch 98/2
    14.4 stand-and-deliver from Collingwood, an eager swipe, a spiralling top-edge, and a simple take for Boucher. Still, he picked up the pace nicely for England 124/4
    18.1 wonderful take from AB de Villiers, diving towards the rope at cow corner, and that's an invaluable breakthrough! Langeveldt pitched it up from round the wicket, Morgan's swipe held up in the wind, and England's finisher is finished! 148/6
    16.1 full and straight, and Wright has no answer to that delivery. Right up in the blockhole, and Langeveldt strikes on his return! 137/5

    19.3 good delivery, full and straight, and beats an ambitious mow. Bresnan goes, and England are pegged back yet further 162/7

    7.4 gone! And Smith was always on the back foot in that little duel. A lofted slog-sweep, and that's catching practice on the midwicket boundary 44/3
    4.1 that's the wicket, and you have to say it was coming. England have kept the pressure on in the Powerplay, Broad pitched it up, and Pietersen at mid-on pouched a simple lofted drive 19/1
    6.1 gone! Yardy strikes first-ball, but that owed everything to Ryan Sidebottom's salmon-like leap at short fine leg. A skied slog, spiralling off a leading edge, and a superbly judged take, running back and across 34/2
    9.5 this is now officially a procession. A loose mow across the line, a big top-edge, and Paul Collingwood steadies himself at midwicket to pouch the chance 53/5
    8.2 that's a massive wicket! Outside off, tossed up, and a touch of turn is enough to beat the outside edge of the bat, but clip the top of off stump! 46/4
    16.1 another slow bouncer, about the sixth in a row from Sidebottom, and that's a limp swat, straight to short backward square! 111/7
    13.3 that could be curtains. Boucher attempted to match Duminy's blow, but the ball got caught in the crosswind, and Eoin Morgan at cow corner was in place for a simple take 90/6
    18.1 wow, Sidebottom clings onto a blinder! That was smashed straight back towards his kneecaps, and it was self-preservation that made that take possible 126/9
    17.5 short, smacked, caught. Elementary dismissal as Morgan charges in from the midwicket rope, and another one takes the long walk 125/8
    18.6 all over red rover. A low full-toss, and that's good enough as Morkel misses and the timbers are rattled! 129/10
