TOTAL105.3 Ov (RR: 4.34)458
Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Alastair Cook, 3.1 ov), 2-17 (Keaton Jennings, 5.2 ov), 3-49 (Gary Ballance, 13.6 ov), 4-76 (Jonny Bairstow, 22.3 ov), 5-190 (Ben Stokes, 54.3 ov), 6-367 (Joe Root, 89.1 ov), 7-367 (Liam Dawson, 89.3 ov), 8-413 (Moeen Ali, 100.4 ov), 9-413 (Mark Wood, 100.6 ov), 10-458 (James Anderson, 105.3 ov)
13.6 to GS Ballance, nibble off the seam, Ballance is right back on the stumps - as is his wont - and up goes the finger! Looked like it might be an inside edge on first viewing, but Ballance's clear indecision in reviewing rather rules that out. Sliding down leg? Potentially, but he doesn't look confident. With good reason! That is slamming into middle and leg!. 49/3
89.1 to JE Root, edged and gone! A thin tickle and Root's epic is over ... a fine delivery in the channel outside off, climbing off the pitch and nibbling up the hill to graze through to the keeper.. 367/6
89.3 to LA Dawson, nipping down the hill, slaps the pad and up goes the finger! Dawson reviews immediately, and that certainly did a lot off the pitch. Bounce and sliding towards leg, but will it be clipping the stumps? Indeed it is! The top of leg bail would have been obliterated, so Dawson's home debut innings is over!. 367/7
105.3 to JM Anderson, and that's that...finally all over. Anderson drives and edges against a wide delivery, de Kock snaffles it to his left. 458/10
3.1 to AN Cook, and that's got 'im! He's churned out the runs for Essex, but has nicked off early today. A short-of-a-length ball angled across, Cook pushes at it away from his body and the edge snaffled by de Kock. 14/1
5.2 to KK Jennings, given! S Ravi waited a long time, then up went the finger. Jennings trapped on the crease, and he's opted not to review after a discussion with Ballance. Did it pitch outside leg? Was nicely bowled, reasonably full, beat Jennings' inside edge as he didn't get that far forward. 17/2
22.3 to JM Bairstow, gottim! Full and straight, hits the seam, thwacks the pad, and Bairstow is so far back in his crease that a review would be a dereliction of duty! Philander has his third, and England are officially in strife. 76/4
54.3 to BA Stokes, well, there's the breakthrough! It's a bouncer from Rabada, around off stump, Stokes eager to play the hook and gets a thin top edge to de Kock. It looked like a tactic to so short for a spell at Stokes, it's worked quickly. He's pretty livid with himself. 190/5
100.4 to MM Ali, cleaned in him up! Gets this one fuller, still, and Moeen misses his drive. Actually a decent but, came back at the left hander and scooted past the inside edge as Moeen left a large gap between bat and pad. 413/8
100.6 to MA Wood, and another! Wood almost walked for that. Back of a length again, doesn't really get up as it may have done, nips back off the seam and slams into Wood's back pad. 413/9

TOTAL105 Ov (RR: 3.43)361
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Heino Kuhn, 5.6 ov), 2-82 (Hashim Amla, 24.1 ov), 3-98 (Dean Elgar, 33.2 ov), 4-104 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 36.2 ov), 5-203 (Theunis de Bruyn, 65.2 ov), 6-244 (Kagiso Rabada, 78.2 ov), 7-248 (Temba Bavuma, 79.6 ov), 8-314 (Quinton de Kock, 92.3 ov), 9-337 (Keshav Maharaj, 99.6 ov), 10-361 (Vernon Philander, 104.6 ov)
65.2 to TB de Bruyn, and he's got him! What a moment strike. Bit of a weak poke outside off undoes all his hard work, shaded away from de Bruyn who was pushing away from his body and it's a healthy outside edge. 203/5
92.3 to Q de Kock, what a catch! It's that man Ben Stokes at square cover. Full outside off, he comes forward to drive, it flies square of the wicket, skimming just above the turf, and Stokes springs to his right to hold a superb, low catch. He'd been stationed at square cover for that shot. 314/8
5.6 to HG Kuhn, make it 836! That's Broad at his best ... the angle in, the nip away, the unavoidable snick of splice as the batsman fails to get properly forward to smother the bounce, and a neat low catch from Cook at first slip. Kuhn is gahn. 10/1
36.2 to JP Duminy, jagging off the seam back into the left-hander, smashes the back pad, and Broad is galloping off on his patented celebrappeal before belatedly turning to point a finger at the umpire. No point in reviewing that!. 104/4
78.2 to K Rabada, there's the nick, and that's been coming! Rabada played back, but it just held its line down the slope, took the edge, and Bairstow gathered well. Rabada's feisty knock ends. He hadn't looked as comfortable against the turning ball, and Dawson needs just two balls to make his mark today. 244/6
99.6 to KA Maharaj, galloping down the track, strikes the pad, and England are thinking strongly about the review here. Yep, they are going for it. Might as well with eight down and two wickets to claim. Clearly pad first.... and it's hitting!. 337/9
24.1 to HM Amla, got him! Huge moment. This spins quite sharply from outside off, Amla playing back and that looks stone dead. The battle of the beards goes Moeen's way. 82/2
33.2 to D Elgar, outside off, pushed uneasily, off the inside edge, onto the pad, into the chest at short leg and Moeen Ali has 100 Test wickets! The second fastest Englishman to the 100 wickets-2000 runs mark after Tony Greig, no less!. 98/3
79.6 to T Bavuma, slower, loopier, leaps into the splice, and Stokes takes a startled chance as it popped to him at slip, off Bairstow's thigh!. 248/7
104.6 to VD Philander, down the track, has a wipe, under-edges into his stumps, and Moeen has four! If he hadn't been bowled, he'd have been stumped by the length of the pitch, but no matter, he's done his utmost to keep South Africa afloat.. 361/10

TOTAL87.1 Ov (RR: 2.67)233
Fall of wickets: 1-80 (Keaton Jennings, 34.5 ov), 2-139 (Alastair Cook, 60.2 ov), 3-142 (Gary Ballance, 62.5 ov), 4-146 (Joe Root, 63.6 ov), 5-149 (Ben Stokes, 66.4 ov), 6-180 (Moeen Ali, 73.6 ov), 7-181 (Liam Dawson, 74.6 ov), 8-182 (Stuart Broad, 75.4 ov), 9-227 (Mark Wood, 84.2 ov), 10-233 (Jonny Bairstow, 87.1 ov)
34.5 to KK Jennings, flinches at one that's too close to the body, de Kock gathers the nick, and out of nothing, South Africa have the breakthrough! A loss of concentration, but due reward for a diligent spell from Morkel. Now then.... 80/1
60.2 to AN Cook, gone! An actual wicket! Bavuma snaffles a firm drive, very well judged diving to his right to intercept a rare loose stroke. Cook was just leaning back a touch, uncharacteristic shot selection, and paid the price for going airborne. 139/2
62.5 to GS Ballance, outside off, and Ballance is gone! Just hangs his bat out to defend the off stump, a nudge of movement off the seam - half a bat's width as Glenn McGrath used to preach - and de Kock ends an obdurate effort!. 142/3
66.4 to BA Stokes, pinned him! Round the wicket, scoots through a fraction low and Stokes is caught dead in front on the crease. Rabada puts his finger to his lips. Didn't say a word this time. 149/5
74.6 to LA Dawson, through him with a big full toss! Dawson lost that by the looks of it. He's bagged a pair, unless they rule the full toss was too high. They are checking with the third umpire. Front line is okay...just. And the it's waist height. Boy, oh boy...what a session. It dipped just below his waist line.. 181/7
84.2 to MA Wood, and that's cleaned him up! Goes to pull a ball that wasn't really short enough, plays over the top of it and his off stump gets pegged back. 227/9
63.6 to JE Root, bowled him! The doubt had been created by that humungous first-ball turner, and this one doesn't budge an inch! Goes on with the arm, bursts through a tentative back-foot block, and crashes into the stumps via a thin inside-edge!. 146/4
73.6 to MM Ali, through him! An action-packed over. Moeen uses his feet, couldn't quite get to the pitch, the ball was held back, he thrust his bat forward but the ball spun past the inside edge and took leg stump. Nice bowling. 180/6
75.4 to SCJ Broad, gone first ball! He turned it straight into the hands of short leg. The ball spun from outside off, Broad tried to roll his wrists on it...super grab by de Bruyn, that came quickly off the face off the bat. 182/8
87.1 to JM Bairstow, there's an appeal for a stumping...Bairstow misses his slog sweep, and it appears the back foot has dragged out. Yes, he's out. Bairstow has got his foot back and de Kock even had time to have two goes at the stumps. 233/10

Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Heino Kuhn, 6.6 ov), 2-12 (Dean Elgar, 9.1 ov), 3-25 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 12.6 ov), 4-28 (Hashim Amla, 14.6 ov), 5-64 (Quinton de Kock, 25.5 ov), 6-67 (Temba Bavuma, 27.3 ov), 7-72 (Theunis de Bruyn, 29.1 ov), 8-82 (Keshav Maharaj, 31.4 ov), 9-94 (Kagiso Rabada, 33.5 ov), 10-119 (Morne Morkel, 36.4 ov)
6.6 to HG Kuhn, what a grab by Bairstow! That's a beautiful snaffle down the leg side. The worst ball of the over, pushed down the leg side, Kuhn catches up with it, gets a thin tickle and Bairstow dives to his left and takes it low one-handed. 12/1
9.1 to D Elgar, he's drilled it back to the bowler! Trying to take the aggressive option, he uses his feet and then drives it firmly at chest height. Moeen takes a sharp catch in front of his umpire. He's done Elgar twice in the game. 12/2
25.5 to Q de Kock, dragged on! It really is Moeen's match. He drags one down short, de Kock's eyes light up, he plays to pull through the leg side, gets a bottom edge into his boot which ricochets back into the stumps. 64/5
27.3 to T Bavuma, and another! Moeen pushes this through a little flatter, it's a bit shorter and Bavuma thinks he can pull it. He seems to get through his shot and just grazes the top of off stump. 67/6
29.1 to TB de Bruyn, they keeping on falling to Moeen! Another lovely piece of bowling, this one goes straight on, de Bruyn is playing back and gets a healthy outside edge which is easily taken by Stokes at slip. 72/7
31.4 to KA Maharaj, another drag on! Five wickets for Moeen. A golden day for him. Maharaj trying to go through the off side with a square bat, very risky on this pitch, and gets a bottom edge into the stumps. 82/8
33.5 to K Rabada, ten in the match! It gets better and better. A shorter ball outside off which bounces a touch as Rabada goes for the cut and it's a thin top edge for Bairstow. 94/9
12.6 to JP Duminy, what a way to go! He's hammered a short ball straight to midwicket. When things aren't going your way. Dragged down outside off, perhaps just got a little big on him, comes from low down on the bat and Moeen plucks it out. Was a very aggressive option moments before tea. 25/3
14.6 to HM Amla, done it! That's a ripper. Well, he's called the review. This pitched on the stumps and straightened beautifully to beat the outside edge as Amla played back. This looks very out. He's quite a long way back, ball doesn't have far to travel. Smashing off stump! What a lovely piece of bowling from Dawson, and a terrific call from Root to bring him on. 28/4
36.4 to M Morkel, that's it! He can't get it right for a third time in the over. Tries to clear deep midwicket where Jennings takes a good, tumbling catch. 119/10
