Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Lara Goodall, 0.4 ov), 2-7 (Sune Luus, 2.4 ov), 3-41 (Anneke Bosch, 8.1 ov), 4-52 (Mignon du Preez, 9.6 ov), 5-69 (Chloe Tryon, 12.1 ov), 6-96 (Delmi Tucker, 17.2 ov), 7-103 (Sinalo Jafta, 18.2 ov), 8-109 (Laura Wolvaardt, 19.1 ov), 9-110 (Masabata Klaas, 19.5 ov)
0.4 to L Goodall, big inducker, even bigger heave across the line! That reprieve didn't count for much, that zips back off the seam on a good length, picks off the top of off stump as Goodall aims somewhere over the Medway, and that's a messy start to South Africa's innings. 1/1
2.4 to S Luus, the stumps are in play all right! Full length, off-stump line, a wild hack, an inside-edge, and Brunt has her 100th T20I wicket!. 7/2
17.2 to D Tucker, Tucker tries to open up the off side, but manages only to loft a dolly straight to point. Brunt has her third, and Wolvaardt is running out of support. 96/6
19.1 to L Wolvaardt, sits back on the pull but that's an outstanding take from Sciver! Throwing herself forward to a well-timed strike at deep midwicket, and clinging on low. Marital bliss at Chelmsford, and Brunt has four!. 109/8
9.6 to M du Preez, flogged in the air, and Wong swallows in the covers! Trying to make room again, but couldn't get the power off the bottom of the bat. The debutant wanders round from mid-off, and South Africa sink again. 52/4
12.1 to CL Tryon, round the wicket, Tryon climbs into the sweep, and up goes the finger! She seems reluctant to review, but it's probably worth the gamble. Struck in a kneeling position, very full... no bat involved, and yep, that's hitting leg!. 69/5
18.2 to S Jafta, faster, flatter, full and straight. Another wind-up, another rattle of the off stump! That's the retort from Ecclestone!. 103/7
8.1 to A Bosch, bosh! This one skids on, and Bosch goes back to cut, the ball zips under her hopeful blade and into off stump! Trouble brewing for South Africa now. 41/3

TOTAL15 Ov (RR: 7.60)114/4
Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Danni Wyatt, 2.3 ov), 2-30 (Bryony Smith, 4.2 ov), 3-69 (Nat Sciver-Brunt, 8.4 ov), 4-87 (Sophia Dunkley, 10.6 ov)
2.3 to DN Wyatt, an over-eager swing from Wyatt! She possibly felt she was missing out, but planting the front foot for a whack through the length ball and loses her off stump. 21/1
4.2 to BF Smith, full and straight, and back goes the off stump! Smith stays deep in her crease, swinging to leg, reward for Khaka, sticking to the basics, and England's rampant start takes another dent. 30/2
8.4 to NR Sciver, well bowled! Sciver runs through an attempted flick to leg, that ball deceived her through the air, looked like pace off, on a perfect length. Still some fight from Khaka, who's having an exceptional night. 69/3
10.6 to SIR Dunkley, down on one knee, and holes out to deep midwicket! A top-edge, and it nearly carries the distance, but Khaka is back on the rope, and steadies herself well. The end of a very favourable experiment from England. 87/4
