BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Robin Peterson822232.75352010
0.3 to AJ Strauss, gone! And the plan has work in some style. Massive early strike for South Africa. Strauss comes down the pitch and tries to launch Peterson over midwicket but can only find long on who makes superb ground to take a low catch. 1/1
0.6 to KP Pietersen, GONE! Would you believe it. Two in the first over. What an effort from Peterson. KP plays forward the ball turns a fraction and a regulation edge goes low to first slip. 3/2
4.4 to IR Bell, gone! He has another. Bell tries to use his feet but doesn't get to the pitch and only succeeds in popping a catch back towards Peterson who dives low to his left and takes a superb catch. Lovely piece of bowling to beat the batsman in flight. 15/3
Dale Steyn903714.11312010
40.1 to TT Bresnan, wicket-to-wicket, and Bresnan is nailed in front of middle and leg! Another review. No issue with the no-ball, but there are several stumps visible. That's hard luck for the batsman, the leg stump was being clipped so it stays with the on-field umpire. Steyn has no need for a sighter!. 149/7
Morne Morkel701622.28332010
35.3 to MJ Prior, too good for Prior! Tight to the line of off stump, climbing off the deck, grazing the edge and the keeper's lean run continues, as England's slide regains momentum!. 134/5
39.3 to RS Bopara, a massive breakthrough! Bopara is nailed lbw as Morkel nips one off the seam. It's gone to a review but it's tactical, as that is plumb. HawkEye says middle and leg, and he's gone. 148/6
Jacques Kallis411403.50160010
Imran Tahir8.413844.38304010
29.5 to IJL Trott, gone this time! Tahir gets his man after all! Plenty of overspin on this and dipped before bouncing a touch more, Trott was a fraction early and popped back wide of Tahir who dived to his left to cling on. Wild celebrations from him and England in the mire.. 114/4
43.2 to MH Yardy, another googly, and another limp dismissal. Not picked whatsoever, and an lofted slap ends up in the hands of short cover. 161/8
43.5 to SCJ Broad, a bigger appeal this time! Broad would definitely have reviewed that if he could, it was the googly, he didn't pick it on the sweep, and umpire Taufel raises the finger!. 161/9
45.4 to GP Swann, an inside-out drive down the ground, gets a lot of air on the stroke, but Duminy runs round from mid-off to snaffle an sharp chance. 171/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Michael Yardy914615.11304000
36.6 to RJ Peterson, that's the wicket! Outside off, Peterson drives flat-footedly, Prior clings on, and now England really are favourites!. 127/7
James Anderson601622.66271030
31.6 to AB de Villiers, Anderson has bowled him, I think! Yes, he has! de Villiers left alone outside off, the ball zipped through to the keeper, who caught it safely but belatedly noticed the bails were on the ground! Replays prove that Anderson just snicked the top of off, and that is a massive wicket. 124/4
33.4 to JP Duminy, gadzooks, no need for a review on that one! Duminy's off pole has been utterly and totally detonated! Unplayable nut from Anderson, swinging, straightening, flattening!. 124/6
Tim Bresnan812713.37280000
46.2 to MN van Wyk, is there another twist!? Surely not? Bresnan strikes just when England needed it. van Wyk looking to cut but it was too close for the shot, ended up bottom edging onto middle stump. 160/8
Graeme Swann1022912.90453000
14.1 to GC Smith, that's a stinking delivery! Perfect length, spitting turn and bounce, Prior gathers well, up by his armpit, and the umpires review because they can tell what on earth has happened ... Looks as though there was the thinnest slither of glove on the ball as he fizzed by ... yes, there quite clearly was. This will be given out ... surely? The wait is eternal. Well, the umpires made a meal of it, but the right decision was reached in the end. 63/1
Stuart Broad6.401542.25291000
17.3 to HM Amla, full and straight, and Amla is gone! He tried to run the ball through third man, but the ball got big on him, and deflected down into the base of the stumps!. 75/2
19.2 to JH Kallis, edged, and did that carry? Yes, Prior says it did, and that's another one down! Width again, Kallis chased it, and suddenly, this one isn't quite over .... 82/3
47.1 to DW Steyn, Broad has nailed Steyn here. Full, nipped back a touch and struck flush in front. Looked stone dead, the umpire agreed and despite a review Steyn had to go.. 164/9
47.4 to M Morkel, Broad has done it! England take the game! South Africans, don't mention the C-word! Somehow England have pulled off a stunning win having been the wrong side of two close results before. It was full and up there to drive, Morkel aimed a big swing but could only feather through to Prior. Broad has conjured up a stunning final over to win the game, England's fielders are going ballistic, not so knackered anymore!. 165/10
