Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Michael Lumb, 1.3 ov), 2-43 (Luke Wright, 4.5 ov), 3-64 (Eoin Morgan, 8.2 ov), 4-112 (Craig Kieswetter, 10.2 ov), 5-116 (Jonny Bairstow, 10.4 ov)
10.2 to C Kieswetter, now tries the Buttler scoop and gets bowled falling outside off stump, beaten for pace really and a full ball strikes middle and off stumps. 112/4
10.4 to JM Bairstow, another middle stump goes flying gets this absolutely bang on does Morkel and Bairstow tried to angle to third man again but missed the fast yorker perfectly on target, there's the Morkel we know and love. 116/5
1.3 to MJ Lumb, out goes middle stump! Length ball nips back and beats Lumb's attempted off drive, he was playing with the bat a long way away from the pads, didn't get his foot out to the ball and the quick, off stump ball seamed in and smashed down middle pole. 20/1
4.5 to LJ Wright, short run, just the one step, slugged high, high in the air and Amla takes it well at point. Good catch that coming across from short third man as Wright tried to go big over the top and skied it off an outside edge. 43/2
8.2 to EJG Morgan, down the wicket, smashed straight up in the air and caught by long off coming in 20 yards off the rope, just didn't get it Morgan and pumped it high into the sky and the catch was well held. 64/3

TOTAL11 Ov (RR: 8.18)90/5
Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Richard Levi, 1.3 ov), 2-34 (Faf du Plessis, 3.6 ov), 3-51 (AB de Villiers, 6.1 ov), 4-53 (Hashim Amla, 6.6 ov), 5-69 (Justin Ontong, 9.2 ov)
3.6 to F du Plessis, tossed up, works across the line ... and gone, looped to mid-off! The ball ballooned off a leading edge, completely the opposite direction to where du Plessis intended and Briggs has his first T20I wicket. 34/2
1.3 to RE Levi, full and straight and bowled him! Levi tried an ungainly heave across the line as Bresnan sent down an offcutter, not quite yorker length but it dips under the stroke and through to rattle the stumps. 9/1
9.2 to JL Ontong, full toss, skewed to point and Ontong has to go! The batsman wasn't happy about the height but it was probably just below the waist, it seemed to surprise Ontong, who went for the old heave ho only to top edge to the man on the edge of the circle. 69/5
6.1 to AB de Villiers, full and outside off stump, slogged into the deep and gone! De Villiers got under the slog-sweep but it wasn't off the middle, trying to drag it to deep midwicket and Bairstow took a good running catch. 51/3
6.6 to HM Amla, hoicked into the deep and England have the key wicket of Amla! Swann slid this towards leg stump as Amla stepped away, tried to give it some tap but could only pick out the man at deep midwicket with a flat pull shot. 53/4
