Fall of wickets: 1-61 (Temba Bavuma, 8.4 ov), 2-87 (Quinton de Kock, 13.6 ov), 3-116 (Aiden Markram, 21.1 ov), 4-171 (Heinrich Klaasen, 30.5 ov), 5-281 (Rassie van der Dussen, 47.2 ov), 6-287 (Wayne Parnell, 48.3 ov), 7-295 (David Miller, 49.3 ov)
48.3 to WD Parnell, sliced to backward point, Archer has a wicket on comeback! Pace off delivery and Parnell opened the shoulders looking to go over the off side, ended up squirting a thick edge to the man on the edge of the ring. 287/6
8.4 to T Bavuma, oh no, Temba! A mistimed hack and taken at mid-on! That's a shame for the SA skipper, as it will only increase the murmurs of discontent. He was looking in good nick, but suddenly decided to throw the bat and lost all shape, the shot never clearing mid-on - in fact, Curran did well to get to it diving forwards and to his left. Sharp catch and England have their breakthrough. 61/1
13.6 to Q de Kock, The old suprise Curran bouncer! QdK takes on the hook, but feathers a catch behind! England knew it, and so did de Kock, who walks straight off after Marais Erasmus' raise of the finger. Just a scratch of the top edge. That's a very handy wicket on what appears a flat deck, although he hadn't quite looked at his most fluent today. 87/2
47.2 to HE van der Dussen, slower ball spooned out to deep cover! Curran strikes and brings to an end Rassie van der Dussen's mighty knock. Wide cutter and it's a tired swipe, looking to go down the ground but ends up sailing over the off side. Almost some confusion about who would go for the catch, but Duckett holds it safely. 281/5
49.3 to DA Miller, smacked down the ground, held by Willey on the juggle! Brilliantly done, it almost cleared him at long-on but he managed to steady himself and throw the ball in the air as he travelled back over the rope, then stepped in to complete the catch. 295/7
30.5 to H Klaasen, kneels into the sweep, and that's plumb! Oh dear, that was an aberration. He was playing Rashid perfectly well off the back foot, but this time he plants the front dog, gets his alignment in a tangle, and that's the end of a promising knock. 171/4
21.1 to AK Markram, through his drive too soon, and holes out to short cover! A smart low pick-up from Malan, stooping to his right, and that's a key incision! Stone's wheels prise out another. 116/3

TOTAL44.2 Ov (RR: 6.11)271
Fall of wickets: 1-146 (Dawid Malan, 19.3 ov), 2-151 (Ben Duckett, 20.5 ov), 3-152 (Harry Brook, 21.3 ov), 4-196 (Jason Roy, 29.1 ov), 5-222 (Moeen Ali, 33.4 ov), 6-234 (Jos Buttler, 36.5 ov), 7-250 (David Willey, 38.5 ov), 8-266 (Sam Curran, 41.6 ov), 9-267 (Jofra Archer, 42.5 ov), 10-271 (Olly Stone, 44.2 ov)
29.1 to JJ Roy, hauled on the pull... straight to deep square leg! Struck hard and flat but into the wheelhouse of Parnell, who runs up a couple of steps from behind square and pouches it nonchalantly in front of the rope! Red Rover for Roy, after a magnificent knock, and SA have another glimmer. 196/4
41.6 to SM Curran, spoke too soon, Curran chases the width! That's a sucker punch from Rabada, he served it up on a good length, shaping away, inviting the drive and a hint of movement takes the edge!. 266/8
20.5 to BM Duckett, nicked behind, pace breaks through! A brief and uncomfortable stay for Duckett on his ODI return, fiddling in the channel to send a thin edge through to de Kock. Back of a length, rising wide of off stump, and it was an awkward flash that did for him. 151/2
36.5 to JC Buttler, edged, and Nortje has the massive wicket! Back of a length, but just tight enough to the off stump to confound Buttler's attempts to run the ball down to deep third. A feather through to the keeper, and the anchor has slipped! England need to take this one deep all of a sudden. 234/6
38.5 to DJ Willey, urgh... that's one swipe too many from Willey! He tries to take Nortje down but the change of angle does him all ends up. Coming back into the left-hander, he tries to drag to leg but a spiralling top edge for a comfortable take from Miller in the covers. 250/7
42.5 to JC Archer, turned inside out, and caught at point! That's outstanding bowling from Nortje, thumping the pitch, demanding that England stay in line to him, and a fat leading edge flies straight into the hands of Klaasen. 267/9
44.2 to OP Stone, poked in the air back down the pitch, and Shamsi seals a sensational turnaround! A simple return catch, Stone had no scoobies about the variations there, and South Africa are still in the hunt for automatic World Cup qualification. 271/10
19.3 to DJ Malan, short and flubbed... straight to mid-off! Magala strikes, and SA have something to celebrate at last. Good heat, 138 clicks and dug into the pitch, got big on Malan and he couldn't control the pull as it went across him on the angle. Breaks a dominant opening stand. 146/1
21.3 to HC Brook, pinned on the pads, gone! Little bit of nip back, Brook couldn't get the bat down, and Erasmus raises the finger! No review, Brook heads off with a three-ball duck on debut. Magala magic for SA, they've now taken 3 for 6 in 13 balls. Game on again?. 152/3
33.4 to MM Ali, dragged from outside off ... straight to deep midwicket! Magala has the golden arm tonight! This time there's more oomph in the short ball, forcing Moeen to hit up into the stroke after committing to the pull, and van der Dussen stoops well to gather!. 222/5
