Commentary

  , Topley to Amla, FOUR,
  , Topley to Amla, no run, driven from deep in the crease, cover scoops to field
  , Topley to Amla, no run, full length, threatening to swing, threatening to nibble off the pitch, tidy work
  , Topley to Amla, no run, defended on a good line
  , Willey to de Kock, FOUR, reaching for the drive and connecting exquisitely! Seemed not to have got to the pitch, but it didn't matter as he cantilevered his body into position and crashed the hands through the line. De Kock has started with intent ...
  , Willey to de Kock, no run, on the back foot, Willey's probing line demanding respect as de Kock defends on the back foot and looks around for the ricochet off the crease
  , Willey to de Kock, no run, driven again, without timing to mid-off
  , Willey to de Kock, FOUR, swing once again, but de Kock saw it early, planted his front foot, and thumped a full-faced drive through the covers. Sweet strike
  , Willey to de Kock, no run, good shape from Willey, swinging towards the cordon
  , Willey to de Kock, no run, outside off, swinging away from the left-hander, left alone
  , Abbott to Rashid, 1 run, a low full toss to finish, Rashid heaves it into the leg side, to the man on the fence - just a single to finish with
  , Abbott to Rashid, no run, full outside off, dips in late as Rashid swings and misses
  , Abbott to Willey, 1 run, low full toss from Abbott, can only squeeze this out through the covers
  , Abbott to Willey, SIX, now Willey gets in on the act, smoking six into the crowd at deep square leg! Picks it up off a length and biffs it beyond the ropes with a grimace
  , Abbott to Willey, 2 runs, pitched up and kerplunked through the covers, hard running from Rashid ensures they get two
  , Abbott to Willey, 2 runs, slower ball, Willey rolls his wrists on a pull, gets a bottom edge behind square
  , Rabada to Rashid, SIX, clobbered! Full toss from Rabada and Rashid absolutely nails a homer over wide long-off
  , Rabada to Rashid, FOUR, full and straight but not quite full enough and Rashid whips it wristily through square leg, this time he beats the man out there to get four - 300 up
  , Rabada to Rashid, no run, pitched up outside off, driven into the ground, back to Rabada
  , Rabada to Rashid, 2 runs, scooped off the legs for a couple wide of the man at deep square
  , Rabada to Rashid, no run, short ball, Rashid swishes and misses... Looked like it might have been over his head from the side angle
  , Rabada to Willey, 1 run, pitched up and dug out into the leg side, bobbles wide of Rabada in his follow through
  , Abbott to Rashid, no run, good length, rolls his fingers over it, Rashid tries a cute late dab and misses - super over from Abbott
  , Abbott to Willey, 1 run, pitched up and this time he swings through the line, drives to the cover sweeper
  , Abbott to Willey, no run, beaten! Lovely delivery, particularly to a No. 9 who's face one ball, draws him forward and past the outside edge
  , Abbott to Willey, 1 wide, dug in short, outside off and Willey looks at it disdainfully... Fine by the umpires
  , Abbott to Jordan, OUT, two in two, Jordan sends it down the throat of deep extra cover! Canny slower ball from Abbott, anticipating the big shot and Jordan lemming-ed it straight to the man on the fence. England could get bowled out here
  , Abbott to Stokes, OUT, leans back and attempts to smack the ball into Pretoria... but he picks out long-off! A lively intervention from Stokes, keeping England's legs whirring, but they are beginning to look like Wile E Coyote after run over a cliff edge
  , Abbott to Jordan, 1 run, low full toss, Jordan reaches out to slap through cover point
  , Rabada to Jordan, 1 run, pitched up and splunked down the ground to long-on
