Robin Peterson402726.75104000
12.3 to JC Buttler, bowled him, another one gone! Buttler beaten by the flight and turn, well down the wicket and all at sea, he pushed tamely as the ball span by and clattered into middle and off. 76/5
15.3 to SR Patel, hits out and goes, caught in the deep by the diving Kallis. It was boom or bust and Patel was not going to be bailed out, trying to hoick over long-off, didn't get enough bat on it and Kallis ran in to dive full length, sliding along the turf and getting safely under a magnificent catch. 85/7
Dale Steyn401313.25141000
7.4 to RS Bopara, can you believe it, Bopara gone again caught at slip and it is exactly the same dismissal as Bopara's other dismissals against South Africa, pushing tentatively forward to a fullish ball just outside off without moving his feet and getting an edge behind the wicket. 50/3
Lonwabo Tsotsobe2022011.0053100
Albie Morkel301214.0080000
13.4 to JM Bairstow, gone, tries to go big but holes out to long-on! England are making a right horlicks of this, Bairstow trying to up the pace and punching a lofted drive limply to the man stationed out near the boundary. 80/6
Johan Botha401924.75132000
6.1 to C Kieswetter, and the first ball spins into the front pad and is given out lbw. Nice delivery first up, jags back and strikes Kieswetter in line with off stump, pretty plumb in front, Kieswetter played across it but got done by the turn. 40/2
10.2 to EJG Morgan, bowled him, Morgan chops on! He tried to manufacture another busy shot, against the turn and it was a bit too close, the ball taking a chunk of bat and cannoning on to the wicket. 66/4

Steven Finn402215.50144000
2.4 to F du Plessis, full and plumb in front, lbw as du Plessis is trapped right in front trying to drive, it was another ball angled into the pads and this catches the bottom of the front pad of du Plessis and he also fails like Bopara, was going on to smash middle and leg stumps. 14/2
Jade Dernbach403127.7584000
1.4 to RE Levi, well here's the breakthrough, a length ball outside off and Levi has chopped it to slip trying to cut away without moving his feet, didn't really got that hard at it, bit of a fiddle again and nicked off. 9/1
3.6 to AB de Villiers, but now de Villiers edges to the keeper. He drove without moving his feet really and got a thin edge through to Kieswetter, a good length ball and de Villiers in unnecessarily trying to force it through the off side has perished, didn't need to do that really. 29/3
