David Willey4040110.0072310
15.3 to F du Plessis, full toss, swings across the line... and picks out deep midwicket! England bag another, du Plessis trying to get a gallop on during the closing stages but he sent the ball sailing towards Roy, running around the fence to pouch it safely. 169/4
Reece Topley2033016.5022300
Moeen Ali403428.5053100
7.1 to Q de Kock, smashed into the leg side... but he finds the fielder! England have the breakthrough - but have they already been broken? De Kock continued to give the bowling merry hell but this came off the toe of the bat and went straight to the man at deep midwicket. 96/1
11.5 to HM Amla, struck in front - and given! Moeen was bowling over the wicket, fired it in full and Amla's run without being dismissed, which began against England in Johannesburg, comes to an end. Just a hint of turn in, might have been tight on line, but umpire S Ravi was happy it would have gone on to hit the stumps. 133/3

Ben Stokes2023011.5024010
Adil Rashid403518.7581300
8.6 to AB de Villiers, got him, sliced into the off side! It came at a cost but Rashid has bought the wicket of de Villiers! He was off balance, coming down the pitch to inflict further mayhem, think Rashid dragged it down slightly and there was some spin, the ball sailing high to the edge of the ring. 114/2

Kagiso Rabada4050212.5077120
5.4 to BA Stokes, four - no, out! A full toss smashed straight to Morris on the deep square-leg boundary. He's gutted, down on his haunches. 87/3
18.2 to JE Root, full toss and dispatched for ... a great catch! A lovely, running catch by Miller on the deep midwicket boundary. They're checking it for a no-ball: that's fine. Now checking for height and that too is fine, so Root's fabulous knock is over. 219/6
Dale Steyn2035017.5005110
Kyle Abbott3.4041311.1882320
2.3 to AD Hales, that is dead. Middle-and-leg, goodnight - and very well bowled, at last pitching it up. Fast and straight. 48/1
4.3 to JJ Roy, oh dear. Another ramp and Roy looks desolate, trying to scoop it over the keeper once more but skies it. 71/2
19.1 to CJ Jordan, what a catch! Jordan went for one of his tennis-pulls, smashing it to Duminy on the boundary at deep midwicket who jogged backwards, taking the catch while falling backwards. 229/7
Imran Tahir402817.0030020
15.4 to JC Buttler, gone! No? Drama here. Buttler's down the pitch but is beaten in flight, and de Kock whips off the bails - or does he? It looks like he's dropped the ball. Buttler runs back into his crease, and no one seems sure, but replays confirm de Kock's stumping was fine. 186/5
Jean-Paul Duminy3031110.3321200
9.4 to EJG Morgan, he's bowled him! Terrific quicker ball, the arm-ball, fired in from around the wicket as Morgan chops on, destroying his leg-stump. 111/4
