Sam Curran2024012.0022100
Jofra Archer401814.50121010
3.4 to T Bavuma, ping, next batsman please! Full, straight, a nothing delivery in so many ways, but sharp pace, on a stump-threatening line, generally does the trick if the batsman gets it wrong! Bavuma was aiming towards the floodlights at wide long-on, but missed it entirely, and England have their opening!. 33/1
Tom Curran403719.2564110
13.4 to H Klaasen, flipped to midwicket and TC has his man! 116kph this time, a bona-fide back-of-the-hander ... the spirit of Jade Dernbach lives on! Stokes is on hand as Klaasen is confounded, wafting a nothing shot across the line to leave South Africa in ever deeper doo-doo. 95/5
Chris Jordan402917.2572010
5.2 to Q de Kock, walloped through the line, doesn't get hold of it, and TC takes a tricky chance! That came right off the toe as de Kock lined up the meaty lofted drive, but was confounded by Jordan's subtle change of pace. There was a lot of work for mid-on to do, however, as he back-pedalled in the breeze and clung on high above his head, reaching back!. 48/2
Adil Rashid402325.75101010
8.6 to RR Hendricks, done like a kipper! That's an exceptional comeback from Rashid. His 50th T20I wicket in his 51st game. Hendricks lined up the slog-sweep, but this ball was too good for him, dipping late on an off-stump line, and biting the top of the timber with good over-spin. England keep chipping away, and another decent SA start comes to an abrupt end. 65/3
10.1 to F du Plessis, easy peasy pickings! That was exquisite from Rashid, drift into the right-hander, late dip, grips the pitch, beats the edge, into Buttler's gloves, and off come the bails with du Plessis's back foot dragged fatefully out of the crease!. 75/4

George Linde402706.75104010
Kagiso Rabada3.502516.5293000
19.2 to SM Curran, dragged on to his stumps! Curran fails playing conservatively, looking to run one behind square but only finding the inside edge, the bails dislodged. Can they stuff it up from here...?. 144/6
Anrich Nortje402105.25123000
Lungi Ngidi4051212.7587220
3.6 to JJ Roy, skier and gone! Luck has finally done one for Roy, who throws back his head immediately after connecting with a hasty cross-batted hack! May have been pace off again, but it foxed the batsman one way or another, looking to belt this over the off side but sends a dolly to Klaasen on the cover circle. 25/1
17.5 to DJ Malan, goes big but this won't clear the man at long-off... Hendricks jumps to take it above his head, stumbles back but tosses the ball up calmly to then recross the rope and complete the dismissal! Superb stuff from the fielder, and Malan is done. But the RRR is down to a run a ball. 134/5
Tabraiz Shamsi401934.75100100
7.4 to JC Buttler, bowled 'im! Shamsi's done for Buttler with a beauty! Tossed up and then spinning sharply, Buttler tried to come down but was nowhere near as he aimed a mighty hoy down the ground... Huge roar of delight from the bowler and SA have a big wicket there!. 51/2
9.1 to JM Bairstow, goes for the big hit but holes out to deep midwicket! Shamsi strikes again, England's MoM from the other night gone! Bairstow clearly looking to dominate once again with the ball spinning in, but he doesn't nail the shot and presents Hendricks with a simple catch. This. Is. On. 55/3
13.2 to BA Stokes, tossed up slow, Stokes slog-sweeps again.... but this time a top edge loops gently to the left of de Kock for a simple catch! Goes big, then goes home, Shamsi with his third, cleverly moving his line slightly further across towards off stump. SA tightening their grip on a grippy pitch. 83/4
