BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
21.116352.97937011
0.4 to AG Prince, brilliant from Anderson, and that was coming. Perfect line and length, good carry off the pitch and hooping outswing, Prince flinches his gloves at the ball, and Prior does the rest.. 1/1
20.1 to GC Smith, vast strike! Superb line and length from Anderson, and subtle late swing. Smith props forward, takes the edge and Prior completes the catch with a tumble diving in front of first slip. 51/3
84.1 to DW Steyn, what a morning for England! In the corridor outside off, Steyn pokes uneasily, gets a fat edge and Jonathan Trott at third slip dives across to snaffle the chance. 280/8
84.4 to M Morkel, incredible! It's catching practice this morning. Anderson finds the perfect length and extra bounce outside off, Morkel hangs out his bat, and Swann atones for his bad miss on the first morning with a fine low scoop, diving to his left at second slip!. 281/9
86.1 to F de Wet, we've got a review coming up. A good delivery zipping back into the pads, the umpire gives it out, but South Africa immediately ask for a second opinion. Some question about whether he was struck outside the line, but that stands. 291/10
2046923.45899000
16.4 to HM Amla, fuller this time and struck bang in front! Shaping in a tad but Amla had planted his front foot, and played all round this, and there is no doubt. 46/2
83.4 to JH Kallis, what a wonderful delivery, and that is Kallis done and dusted! The ball pitched on off, zipped half-a-bat's width, took the edge, and fizzed through to the keeper! Fantastic line and control of the seam from Onions, and the perfect start for England. 280/7
1965412.84887000
66.4 to MV Boucher, that's the breakthrough, or is it? It's review time ... Boucher has been struck on the back pad by one that zipped off the seam, and it's going to be upheld by the third umpire. HawkEye shows that was going to hit the top of middle, and that's a fine piece of bowling.. 216/6
2217423.36836000
41.1 to AB de Villiers, gone this time! Swann from round the wicket and de Villiers will kick himself, chipped to short midwicket. Soft dismissal just as South Africa were really making England sweat. Swann continues to cause trouble but he would concede he was lucky here.. 127/4
41.2 to JP Duminy, Swann strikes again! Sharply spinning delivery from round the wicket, catches Duminy's outside edge and Prior eagerly snaps it up. Second first-baller in a row for Duminy. Top delivery from Swann and South Africa are in real trouble.. 127/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
2247553.409810010
0.6 to AJ Strauss, gone! Morkel gets Strauss again! Outside off stump and pitched full, Strauss goes for a slightly flat-footed loose drive and South Africa strike straight away. Wickets tumbling at Newlands!. 2/1
24.3 to PD Collingwood, that's a huge wicket, pitched right up to the blockhole, and Collingwood over-balances as he attempts to drive down the ground. Hits the back leg, and there's no point in reviewing that. 73/4
50.4 to AN Cook, huge breakthrough for South Africa! Cook paddles a short ball gently to midwicket. Bit of nothing shot, neither a full-blooded pull or a careful leg-side force. Whatever it is, South Africa won't care, they are right in this contest.. 133/5
82.4 to GP Swann, awesome delivery, and that is the breakthrough. This one takes off from a good length, glances the glove, and pops easily to Graeme Smith at first slip!. 241/8
82.5 to JM Anderson, It's two in two! Morkel has five as Anderson collects the first golden duck of his career. Angled across the left-hander, extra bounce on a good length, fenced to Smith again at first slip, and it's utterly bonkers out there. 241/9
1633602.25764001
2257443.3610012000
12.4 to IJL Trott, got him! Steyn strikes! The wickets keep tumbling and Trott won't be happy with this. Outside off stump on a good length, really should have been left alone, but he flashed at it from the crease and only succeeded in inside-edging it on to off stump. 36/2
12.6 to KP Pietersen, another one! Pietersen gone for a duck! Fullish ball that Pietersen just chipped straight back at Steyn who gleefully snaffled the chance. Steyn is pumped, this is extraordinary.. 36/3
77.6 to SCJ Broad, Steyn breaks through! Broad is hanging back on his crease, and he's late on this and it clips the top of the stumps. Important breakthrough just before the second new ball. 225/7
87.6 to MJ Prior, short again, Prior tries to paddle to fine leg, but under-edges onto his stumps. The end of a fine counterattacking performance, and had that been anything other than the last ball of the over, he would doubtless have attempted something more aggressive to that ball. 273/10
1422711.92693010
62.3 to IR Bell, short, wide, cut, and that's gone straight to point! Oh Belly, Belly, it looked as though he'd cracked it at last, but with a fifty in sight, he's the one who breaks. 174/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
22.219834.388712100
99.5 to JH Kallis, gone this time! Kallis never really got going this morning, tries an expansive cover drive outside off stump, a hint of movement means it takes the edge and goes through to Prior. No great celebration from England, nor should they be, but they have done reasonably well this morning.. 376/4
105.1 to AB de Villiers, exceptional catch from Broad, running back from mid-off and taking the ball over his shoulder with a tumble as de Villiers attempted an inside-out loft over the covers. 401/5
111.2 to JP Duminy, short and swinging down the leg-side, there's a thin tickle through to the keeper, and that is out!. 447/7
2248713.958712002
89.5 to GC Smith, short, swished, high on the bat, Collingwood at deep backward square steadies himself, and grasps the chance with fingers skyward. 346/3
37512733.4315513100
11.1 to AG Prince, Another review. Prince leans forward and is struck on the pad, given out and Prince reviews. Prince looks in trouble, there is no inside edge and it is as plumb as pudding. Given out and Swann strikes again! Wasted review that one.. 31/1
65.4 to HM Amla, he's gone now! Props forward to a ball that turns a touch, takes the inside-edge, bobbles off the pad, and Cook at short leg stays low to end a fine innings. 261/2
110.3 to MV Boucher, and now Swann strikes ... is that the 14th time he's struck in the first over of a spell? I believe it might be. Another sweep from Boucher, a steepling top-edge, and a comfortable catch at short backward square. 442/6

138.1 to IR Bell, Inspired move! Bell has gone! Oh dear, that is tragedy for Bell. It was outside off he could have left it alone, but had a fiddle at it and it goes through to Smith.. 290/9
35117422.1117811000
47.2 to KP Pietersen, got him! Huge wicket and an inspired bowling change from Smith. Full and Pietersen is playing across the ball, strikes him in front and there is no need for a review on that. Steyn gets the main man and England are tottering now!. 129/3
70.3 to IJL Trott, got him! Steyn strikes! Off stump is flying as a full ball nips back between bat and pad and crashes into the top of off. It looked a loose shot but it was fantastic quick bowling.. 160/5
1252311.91623000
36.3 to AN Cook, the pull shot fails Cook, and that's the breakthrough. Looking to continue his dominant approach, a steepling top-edge, and Boucher steadies himself to claim an easy chance.. 101/1
40148532.1219611000
39.3 to AJ Strauss, massive wicket! Harris gets Strauss, it pitched outside off again, Strauss tried to work it into the leg side but only succeeded in inside-edging into his pad and it looped up gently to Amla who grabbed it eagerly. That could be the decisive moment.. 107/2
61.6 to JM Anderson, the leg-slip is instantly into the action! An aggressive sweep from Anderson, as Harris serves up a full-toss. The ball bounces down onto his toe, flicks round the corner, and Ashwell Prince snaffles a blinder, diving one-handed to his right!. 153/4
137.4 to SCJ Broad, review Harris gets it right this time! Drags his length back, Broad lunges forward again and it raps off the glove and it's given out. Broad reviews, hoping his glove was off the bat. It's not, he's gone and the England a teetering on the brink here. 286/8
1442802.00682000
1233022.50605000
127.3 to PD Collingwood, well, what have we here! Maybe there is life! Duminy ends Collingwood's epic block with one that is pushed across him, catches the outside edge, and goes through to Kallis at slip. Suddenly this last hour will seem like a day for England!. 272/6
129.6 to MJ Prior, Duminy strikes again! This match is alive! Prior tries to defend, it comes slightly off an inside edge and De Villier's snaffles a low chance. High drama here!. 278/7
