Lungi Ngidi4048312.0085300
2.5 to JC Buttler, slashes at a wide one, nicked to the keeper! No joy for Buttler against the new ball, this was delivered cross-seam and skidded on as he aimed a flat-footed thwack... Early breakthrough for South Africa, as Ngidi continues his good form from the other night. 17/1
17.6 to MM Ali, ...and gone for good this time! Scooped high towards long-on, where Temba Bavuma clutches it to his chest! Taken on the rope, but Moeen's chanced his arm to good effect, getting his own back on Ngidi after that final over the other night. 176/6
19.3 to CJ Jordan, wide of the stumps, Jordan carves it up and over... BAVUMA HOLDS A STUNNER! Made the ground this time, sprinting around the rope from long-off, and he takes it in both hands while diving full length, before rolling up in triumph! Brilliant stuff. 194/7
Andile Phehlukwayo4047211.7552400
6.6 to JM Bairstow, timbeeeeeerrrrrrr! Top of off, off you pop! Phehlukwayo liked that one... Bairstow was maybe set for a slower delivery, hung a limp bat out, only to see the ball rattle his poles. That'll check England's momentum. 69/2
15.1 to JL Denly, short and leg side... and bowled him! Slower ball, legcutter from Phehlukwayo, and Denly has deflected on to his stumps via his forearm! Foxed by the lack of pace, through the pull shot early, and Denly is done-ly!. 125/5
Tabraiz Shamsi403017.5072110
9.3 to JJ Roy, skips down... picks out long-on! Roy goes for an unfulfilled 40! He was hitting to the longest part of the ground and never really got hold of it, leaving Miller with a straightforward take. 90/3
Dwaine Pretorius301715.6660100
14.4 to EJG Morgan, holes out to long-off! No pace to work with and Morgan had almost backed away too much, looking to open up the off side but scuffed it straight to the man! Struggled to get going, the England captain, and Pretorius now sees him off. 123/4

Tom Curran4045211.2582410
19.5 to D Pretorius, yorker, sits deep in the crease, struck on the pad and it's given out! Pretorius reviews, belatedly, after a shout from de Kock on the balcony. Stokes isn't keen on that but we've gone upstairs. Great yorker, tailing in towards the bottom of off stump. Strikes him on the right boot. Is it outside the line? No bat involved... or is there? Ultra Edge isn't particularly conclusive, looks like the spike is just after the bat comes down to me. Umpire's call on impact, and clipping off stump!. 202/6
19.6 to BC Fortuin, fires a full ball in towards leg stump, Fortuin gets low looking to lap it over short fine leg, it loops up and straight into Rashid's hands! England win by two runs! The back-of-the-hander from Curran, flipped up into the air and Rashid takes the catch. 202/7
Chris Jordan403127.7561110
16.3 to JT Smuts, bowled 'im! Shuffles across expecting a wide yorker looking to flick it past fine leg, but Jordan adjusts brilliantly, speared in a yorker at leg stump which sends the zing bails flying! . 158/4
16.4 to AL Phehlukwayo, cleaned up first ball! Spears in a quick yorker, full and straight, and Phehlukwayo can't jam his bat down in time! Brilliant death bowling from Jordan, who looks delighted with his night's work.... 158/5
Adil Rashid3034011.3351300
Mark Wood403929.7582310
7.5 to Q de Kock, attempted slower ball, turns into a full toss, de Kock looks to go again but mistimes it and Stokes takes a simple catch on the rope! We'll check for a no-ball here... is that above the waist? It's marginal, but I think he's alright. He was a fraction out of his crease, but it was dipping... yep, given out!. 92/1
9.1 to T Bavuma, short ball, 92mph/148kph, shapes to pull but gloves it down the leg side and Buttler takes the catch! Decent grab diving to his left and Wood is jubilant, roaring in delight at the breakthrough. 101/2
Ben Stokes201618.0041100
12.3 to DA Miller, low full toss, wide on the crease, Miller looks to go over long-on but it flies off the bottom of the bat and he holes out to Jordan on the fence! The Durham boys are providing England with middle-over breakthroughs... now where have I heard that one before?. 123/3
