Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Jason Roy, 4.6 ov), 2-76 (Joe Root, 13.5 ov), 3-85 (Eoin Morgan, 16.5 ov), 4-155 (Ben Stokes, 27.5 ov), 5-156 (Jos Buttler, 27.6 ov), 6-181 (Moeen Ali, 33.5 ov), 7-183 (Chris Woakes, 34.5 ov), 8-192 (Adil Rashid, 36.5 ov), 9-223 (Alex Hales, 43.1 ov), 10-236 (Stuart Broad, 44.6 ov)
33.5 to MM Ali, terrific catch at cover! And England sink further. Full outside off, Moeen always keen to have a drive, his weight is leaning a touch backwards, he spoons it in the air and Behardien gets good hang-time at cover to grab it one-handed above his head. 181/6
27.5 to BA Stokes, bowled 'im, behind the legs! Rabada roars, Stokes throws back his head in disgust... He was moving across and looking to flick off his pads, maybe beaten for pace and he'd certainly lost his bearings as the ball removed the leg bail. 155/4
27.6 to JC Buttler, straight through him, stumps on the ground! What a sight that is... Buttler gets his second duck in three innings - a second first-baller, in fact, since the previous delivery was a wide - and England's position slips from promising to precarious. Wonderful delivery from Rabada, although there was a big gap for the ball to veer back through, clipped the inside edge and then uprooted leg stump. Pow!. 156/5
43.1 to AD Hales, picks out the man! Tries to clear deep square leg with a pull, he connected cleanly but could not quite get the required distance and it's a well-taken catch on the boundary. 223/9
4.6 to JJ Roy, he's done it! A beauty from Tahir and he's got Roy lbw. A touch of gold from de Villiers and Tahir. This one gripped a spun. Pitched around middle and leg, spun to beat the outside edge, struck him on the back leg. Roy debated with Hales about a review - for height - but then slowly makes his way off. 15/1
13.5 to JE Root, huge appeal for lbw, and given after the review! Given not out first of all as Root misses his sweep, Tahir is desperate for the review, he was calling for it in his follow through! Tahir is convinced. Don't think there's any bat. No edge showing up. This is pretty straight by the looks of it. He's got a good stride in, but that doesn't mean much these days. Three reds! And he's gone. Tahir was right.. 76/2
44.6 to SCJ Broad, and that's all over, Broad tries to clear the off side but can't get it any further than cover. Broad's view was to get what he could. Not his fault England were in a mess.. 236/10
16.5 to EJG Morgan, Morgan skips out, Wiese spears it across... and flicks the top edge through to de Kock! England's captain goes, a disappointing series for him, he was again trying to stamp his mark on proceedings but ended up chasing a wide one. 85/3
34.5 to CR Woakes, would you believe it! It's a poor ball, full on leg stump, and Woakes just clips it straight to the man at long leg. He didn't have to move. Wiese is almost embarrassed that the ball took a wicket, but he won't mind in the slightest. 183/7
36.5 to AU Rashid, another giveaway from England! Pretty dim batting from Rashid, he had picked up two boundaries in the over but decided to try and clear mid-off with a drive and just picked out the man. 192/8

Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Quinton de Kock, 5.1 ov), 2-14 (Faf du Plessis, 5.2 ov), 3-22 (Rilee Rossouw, 7.3 ov), 4-147 (Hashim Amla, 29.5 ov), 5-166 (Farhaan Behardien, 34.3 ov)
5.1 to Q de Kock, nips it through him, big, big appeal from Topley - and England are going to review the not-out decision. It was a good, searching ball, over the top of off but did it clip the inside edge on its way through? Yes, it did! Visible edge on to his trouser pocket, which might have been the bit that threw Chris Gaffaney, but it won't cost England, as the decision is overturned and the finger is raised! Top stops de Kock. 14/1
5.2 to F du Plessis, big inswinger to start with - he's got him first ball! Loose drive from du Plessis, flicks the inside edge and rattles leg stump... Topley is on a hat-trick! Not sure about the stroke but it has certainly shaken this chase up. 14/2
7.3 to RR Rossouw, pitched up and he goes for the drive... but plinks it to extra cover! Topley has a third, Rossouw leans over his bat aghast. Maybe stopped in the pitch and he didn't connect properly, just presented a Valentine's gift to Hales standing close in. 22/3
34.3 to F Behardien, tossed up above the eyeline, Behardien lured into the big shot but he hits it straight to mid-on! Credit to Morgan (wink, nudge) for keeping the man up on the edge of the ring, Rashid got the ball to dip on Behardien and he couldn't have picked him out better. 166/5
29.5 to HM Amla, breakthrough! Is there still time for England? Amla comes down the pitch, the ball drifts away outside off and beats the drive, Buttler gathers and manages to get the ball back to the stumps. 147/4
