Charl Langeveldt403919.75101320
0.1 to JL Denly, what a start for South Africa, wicket first ball, Denly shuffles across and tries to work the ball away fine on the leg side and the umpire's finger goes up...Langeveldt is over the moon and the local crowd are on their feet. Wow, nothing like a quiet start. 0/1
Ryan McLaren403338.25103120
3.4 to AN Cook, another one goes, and that was as plumb as you'll see...Cook misses a low full-toss on leg stump and that was crashing straight into the timber.. 25/2
16.1 to PD Collingwood, that's the end of a cracking innings. Made room for a full-length delivery, but picked out the man in the deep at long-off. Superb batting, and England are on course for 200-plus, as Luke Wright arrives to biff a few. 159/4
18.2 to MJ Prior, width again, full length, Prior attempts to carve over point, but he didn't get the elevation and Albie Morkel swallowed the chance with a deft leap. 169/6
Dale Steyn4040110.0085100
17.4 to LJ Wright, another full toss, but Wright doesn't time that at all, and AB de Villiers sets himself well and completes an easy catch.. 167/5

Sajid Mahmood3031110.3383210
10.2 to JP Duminy, that is much, much better, and that is also out! Pitches just on leg stump, nips away, and raps the pad halfway up. Timely, and this could be a cracking finish. 112/3
Luke Wright201718.5041110
8.3 to GC Smith, that's what England desperately needed. Another slower ball, drilled out to deep point, where Eoin Morgan steadies himself and pouches a fast, flat chance. 97/1
Graeme Swann3030110.0071300
9.2 to LE Bosman, that has gone miles and miles in the air. Someone is going to be under it, and the skipper makes the call at midwicket. Steadies himself well, clings on and falls to the turf in his followthrough, and that is not only a vital wicket, it's the end of a brilliant innings. 101/2
