Thanks very much for following our LIVE UPDATES for what was a cracking match that saw well over 600 runs scored. 
09 Feb 20:59

It means that the series is still alive.

England lead 2-1 going into Friday's 'Pink Drive' clash in Johannesburg.

09 Feb 20:58
A really impressive batting display from the Proteas. Centuries from Amla, De Kock and Du Plessis played well for his 30*.
09 Feb 20:57
THAT'S IT! SA WIN BY SEVEN WICKETS as Du Plessis works one to fine-leg ...
09 Feb 20:57
SIX! Du Plessis smashes the free hit over mid-on and SA need just 1 for victory ...
09 Feb 20:56
Du Plessis dropped at point. But it wouldn't have counted because Stokes' full toss was a no-ball. 
09 Feb 20:55
8 needed now from the last 3 overs. SA 311/3. 
09 Feb 20:54
AB de Villiers is the new man ...
09 Feb 20:53

WICKET! Amla goes caught behind. Jordan went wide, Amla chased it but edged through to Buttler behind the stumps. 

It's the end of a brilliant innings. Amla made 127 from 130, and he has all but taken the Proteas over the line. 

09 Feb 20:51
FOUR! Jordan goes full, but he misses his line and from around the wicket Du Plessis just needs to get some bat on it and it flies past the wicketkeeper and into the boundary. 
09 Feb 20:49
FOUR! Jordan persists with the short stuff and Du Plessis rocks back and just guides the ball towards the fence. 
09 Feb 20:48
18 needed from 30 now ...
09 Feb 20:48
FOUR! As Mike Haysman just said, "The wrists have done it again!" Amla squeezes Stokes through point and the ball finds the ropes. 
09 Feb 20:44
FOUR! Amla flicks Stokes through the leg side. It was in the air, but it didn't matter in the end. 
09 Feb 20:44

FOUR! Du Plessis again. Down the ground. A really good looking stroke. 11 from that over and that surely is that.  

SA 292/2 (44). They need 27 from 36.  

09 Feb 20:42
FOUR! Du Plessis punches a short ball from Jordan past the leg-side gully and it beats fine leg.
09 Feb 20:41
36 off 39 now. Surely South Africa can't lose from here ...
09 Feb 20:39
Jordan back into the attack. All series we've heard about his phenomenal ability to find a yorker length, but we haven't really seen that yet ...
09 Feb 20:38
38 needed from 42 now. SA 281/2 (43)
09 Feb 20:37
FOUR! Du Plessis comes down the wicket to Stokes and makes good contact to beat mid-off. 
09 Feb 20:34
Stokes back into the attack ...
09 Feb 20:33
44 off 48 needed now. SA 275/2 (42)
09 Feb 20:33
SIX! That'll do! Mid-off is up and Amla goes over the top and clears the ropes easily. That really relieves the pressure. 
09 Feb 20:32
FOUR! A welcomed boundary. Not the best stroke as Amla edges Ali, but they all count. 
09 Feb 20:31
At this stage of the game the Proteas will probably be happier with pace. Ali also into his last over now. 
09 Feb 20:30
57 needed off 54 now. That's the end of Rashid, who finishes with 1/45 (10). 
09 Feb 20:26
63 needed off 60. SA 256/2 (40)
09 Feb 20:26
Proteas need to be a little bit careful here. They now need more than a run a ball. Should still be fine, but ...
09 Feb 20:21
Faf du Plessis is the new man for the Proteas, who need 70 from 72.
09 Feb 20:20
WICKET! Wiese is bowled by Ali trying to reverse sweep. The gamble hasn't worked. Gone for 7 off 4. 
09 Feb 20:19
SIX! Wiese! He smashes Ali for a maximum! 
09 Feb 20:19
100 for Amla! That's his 22nd ODI century! It's come off 109 balls. 10 fours and 1 six. 
09 Feb 20:15

NEW MAN IN

Interestingly, it is David Wiese who walks to the wicket at the fall of De Kock's wicket.

09 Feb 20:14

Rashid has struck for England and he has removed De Kock!

The Proteas opener attempted to hit him over mid-off but couldn't quite clear Root who took a good catch above his head. 

Q de Kock c Root b Rashid 135 (147m 117b 16x4 4x6) SR: 115.38

09 Feb 20:13
WICKET!
09 Feb 20:11

Adil Rashid returns to the attack for England.

He has figures of 0/35 in 7 overs. 

09 Feb 20:10

DRINKS BREAK

The Proteas are in full control on 238/0 after 36 overs.

They require 81 from 84 deliveries.

De Kock 135* (115)

Amla 97* (102)

09 Feb 20:07
FOUR! De Kock backs away and cuts a quicker one from Ali. Third man is up, and it races to the boundary. 
09 Feb 20:05
Proteas need less than a run a ball now ...
09 Feb 20:04

FOUR! Amla this time on the leg-side. Short from Topley, Amla doesn't get all of it but he gets enough for back-to-back boundaries.

SA 230/0 (35)

 
09 Feb 20:03
FOUR! Amla gives the sweeper no chance! He's bludgeoned that one through the off-side. He's seeing it like a beach ball now. 
09 Feb 20:00
SIX! That is special from Amla. He shuffles across to the off-side again, Willey bowls down the leg-side and Amla clips him over fine-leg for a maximum. 
09 Feb 19:54
FOUR! De Kock is doing what he wants now. That was short and outside off-stump so, naturally, De Kock pulls it over mid-on for four. 
09 Feb 19:54
FOUR! 200 come sup for the Proteas as De Kock whips one to the square leg fence. Another full toss as Topley looks for the yorker. 
09 Feb 19:50

De Kock gets a bit of luck. Looks to hit Willey out the ground and he times it so badly that it doesn't even carry to the fielder at long-on. 

SA 196/0 (32)

 
  • 46.2 - Ben Stokes to Faf du Plessis. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Topley.

    There is the victory. Du Plessis flicks it off his pads for the final run and South Africa have won by seven wickets, clawing their way back into the series at 2-1.

    At the half way point in the match England will have been fairly satisfied with their efforts. Joe Root batted beautifully for his 125 and was well supported by Hales and Stokes who hit half centuries, though a stuttering finish left them 20 or 30 short of where they could have been.

    Even if England had've set a higher total, they probably wouldn't have defended it due to the superb performance from South Africa's openers. Amla and de Kock both hit scintillating centuries in sharing a stand worth 239, dominating the bowling attack throughout.

    The teams will move onto Johannesburg on Friday for the fourth match of the series.

  • 46.1 - FREE HIT. SIX! Ben Stokes to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs.

    He takes full advantage of the free hit by belting it over long on for six. One to win.

  • 46.1 - No ball Ben Stokes to Faf du Plessis. Beamer, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to cover for 1 run, dropped catch by Morgan.

    Stokes bowls a beamer that is driven to Morgan and he nearly pulls off an outstanding catch, though it wouldn't of counted anyway.

  • 45.6 - Chris Jordan to AB de Villiers. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to mid on for no runs, fielded by Root.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Buttler.

    Amla has to go with just eight runs needed to win. It was another short wide one from Jordan and he gets a feather of an edge on it through to Buttler. There are no celebrations from the England fielders, 311-3.

  • 45.5 - Wide Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Length ball, down leg side no foot movement flick, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Buttler.

  • 44.6 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Hashim Amla. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

  • 44.5 - Ben Stokes to Hashim Amla. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Willey.

  • 44.4 - Ben Stokes to Hashim Amla. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Root.

  • 43.6 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.

    du Plessis is looking in very good touch too which will be a worry for England in the next two matches. Just 27 to win now.

  • 43.4 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to Faf du Plessis. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.

    Easy pickings for du Plessis as he picks that up off his thigh guard with a short arm jab.

  • 43.3 - Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Half volley, down leg side on the back foot glancing, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid.

  • 43.2 - Chris Jordan to Faf du Plessis. Short, down leg side on the back foot flick, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Willey.

  • 42.5 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.

    That's good use of the feet from du Plessis to get to the pitch and drive gloriously past Stokes.

  • 42.3 - Ben Stokes to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Roy.

  • 38.1 - Adil Rashid to Hashim Amla. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Willey.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Moeen Ali to David Wiese. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, missed.

    He may have hit a big six but follows it up with a reverse sweep when the length simply wasn't there and is bowled round his legs. England in with a sniff? Highly unlikely, 249-2.

  • 37.5 - SIX! Moeen Ali to David Wiese. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs.

    That's why Wiese has been moved up the order. He comes down the track and slaps that over the bowler's head for six.

  • 37.4 - Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Jordan.

    Amla moves to his 22nd ODI century by nudging that through the legside. It's come off 109 balls. Top knock.

  • 37.3 - Moeen Ali to David Wiese. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Stokes.

  • 37.2 - FREE HIT. Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break full toss, middle stump down the track driving, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Stokes.

  • 37.1 - Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break full toss, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Roy.

  • 36.6 - Adil Rashid to David Wiese. Leg spinner short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed to backward point for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Quinton de Kock. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air under control to long off, by Root.

    England finally have a wicket! de Kock attempts to go over mid off but doesn't get it right out of the middle and Root takes a good catch above his head. You would imagine it's a consolation for England, 239-1.

  • 36.4 - Adil Rashid to Quinton de Kock. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off for no runs, fielded by Root.

  • 36.3 - Adil Rashid to Hashim Amla. Leg spinner short, middle stump on the back foot pulling, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run.

  • 36.2 - Adil Rashid to Hashim Amla. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for no runs, fielded by Root.

  • 36.1 - Adil Rashid to Hashim Amla. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 35.6 - Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, shy attempt by Topley.

    So at the second Drinks break it looks inevitable that South Africa will go on to win the game. They need another 81 runs off 14 overs but with ten wickets in hand there shouldn't be any pressure. De Kock has been superb for his 135 and you would think he'll be joined in the century club by Amla, who is just three away.

  • 35.5 - Moeen Ali to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Jordan.

  • 35.4 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Quinton de Kock. Off break short, off stump backing away cutting, well timed past third man for 4 runs.

  • 35.3 - Moeen Ali to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Willey.

  • 35.2 - Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Jordan.

  • 35.1 - Moeen Ali to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, to leg on the back foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Hales.

  • 34.6 - FOUR! Reece Topley to Hashim Amla. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Consecutive boundaries for Amla who is having a lot of fun out there. England are still fighting in the field but it's just so difficult to bowl at two batsmen that are so well set.

  • 34.5 - FOUR! Reece Topley to Hashim Amla. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

  • 34.4 - Reece Topley to Quinton de Kock. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed to square leg for 1 run, shy attempt by Morgan, fielded by Roy.

  • 34.3 - Reece Topley to Hashim Amla. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, to mid on for 1 run, direct hit by Root.

  • 34.2 - Reece Topley to Quinton de Kock. Full toss, to leg on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Root.

  • 34.1 - Reece Topley to Quinton de Kock. Full toss, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed to mid on for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 33.6 - SIX! David Willey to Hashim Amla. Length ball, middle stump moves in front flick, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs.

    Willey comes around the wicket and gets nonchalantly despatched over fine leg for six. England are in big danger of losing by ten wickets here.

  • 33.5 - David Willey to Hashim Amla. Short, to leg on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 2 runs, run save by Ali, fielded by Jordan.

  • 33.4 - David Willey to Hashim Amla. Half volley, down leg side on the back foot flick, well timed to deep backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Jordan.

  • 33.3 - David Willey to Hashim Amla. Yorker, to leg on the back foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Root.

  • 33.2 - David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Topley.

  • 33.1 - David Willey to Hashim Amla. Half volley, to leg on the back foot flick, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Jordan.

  • 32.6 - Reece Topley to Hashim Amla. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Morgan.

  • 32.5 - Reece Topley to Quinton de Kock. Full toss, to leg no foot movement glancing, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Willey.

  • 32.4 - FOUR! Reece Topley to Quinton de Kock. Slower ball bouncer, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

  • 32.3 - FOUR! Reece Topley to Quinton de Kock. Full toss, to leg on the back foot flick, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.

    He times the ball and places it perfectly to bring the 200 up for South Africa.

  • 32.2 - Reece Topley to Hashim Amla. Slower length ball, to leg on the back foot glancing, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid.

  • 32.1 - Reece Topley to Hashim Amla. Length ball, off stump on the back foot driving, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Stokes.

  • 31.6 - David Willey to Hashim Amla. Yorker, off stump on the front foot defending, to point for 1 run, shy attempt by Stokes.

  • 31.5 - David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air under control to long on for 1 run, fielded by Topley.

    England will rue their luck there. De Kock completely mistimes the drive, so much so that it falls short of Topley who runs in from the boundary.

  • 31.4 - David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Willey.

  • 31.3 - SIX! David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs.

    Oh dear, oh dear! Willey drops very short and de Kock smashes that miles out of the ground.

  • 31.2 - David Willey to Hashim Amla. Length ball, off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Stokes.

  • 31.1 - David Willey to Hashim Amla. Slower length ball, off stump moves in front working, well timed to deep square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Jordan.

  • 30.6 - Ben Stokes to Hashim Amla. Length ball, off stump on the back foot flick, well timed to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Hales.

  • 30.5 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Hashim Amla. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    That was a perfectly good length ball from Stokes but Amla's class shines through as he wristily flicks that through midwicket with perfect timing. You wouldn't want to speak to Stokes at the moment, it's fair to say.

  • 30.4 - Ben Stokes to Hashim Amla. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Roy.

  • 30.3 - Ben Stokes to Quinton de Kock. Full toss, down leg side no foot movement flick, well timed in the air under control to fine leg for 1 run, run save by Topley.

    That's a wonderful piece of fielding by Topley, sprawling to his right to cut off the boundary.

  • 30.2 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Quinton de Kock. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

  • 30.1 - Ben Stokes to Hashim Amla. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Willey.

  • 29.6 - Chris Jordan to Quinton de Kock. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler.

  • 29.5 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to Quinton de Kock. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.

    Jordan was aiming for another yorker but he just misses his length and is driven gloriously down the ground for four. He's looking ominous at the moment.

  • 29.4 - Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Slower length ball, off stump on the back foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Willey.

  • 29.4 - Wide Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Bouncer, outside off stump on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Buttler.

    Rashid slogs another single out to deep midwicket meaning he and Willey have taken 25 off the last two overs to propel England to 318-8 off their allotted overs. A score of over 300 has never been chased down on this ground, so South Africa will really have to pull something out of the bag to win this one.

    Joe Root was the superstar for England hitting 125, his highest ODI score. Hales (65) and Stokes (53) ably assisted with only Abbott (2-50) going at less than a run a ball. The chase will begin in around half an hour.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kyle Abbott to Chris Jordan. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air under control to deep backward point, by Duminy.

    Abbott is on a hat-trick! It's a slower ball bumper and Jordan can't time the ball well enough to beat Duminy on the deep point boundary, 291-8.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kyle Abbott to Ben Stokes. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, mis-timed in the air under control to long off, by Behardien.

    Stokes fruitful knock comes to an end as he mistimes the ball straight down Behardien's throat at long off. You would think he has done enough to see England over the 300 mark, 291-7.

  • 45.5 - Morne Morkel to Ben Stokes. Full toss, off stump backing away Slog, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Behardien.

    Stokes is annoyed that the full toss didn't go over the rope but he's gone to 50 off just 33 balls so he shouldn't be too harsh on himself!

  • wicket: OUT! Run Out. David Wiese to Joe Root. Full toss, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to silly mid on, fielded by Wiese, by de Kock.

    It's such a shame that this partnership has to end like that. Root nails the ball into the non-strikers stumps and calls the single after the deflection. Both batsmen then end up in a complete mess in the middle of the pitch and Root sacrifices his wicket. It's been a superb knock from him, 269-5.

  • 42.5 - David Wiese to Ben Stokes. Length ball, off stump backing away driving, well timed to long on for 1 run, fielded by Behardien.

  • 42.4 - SIX! David Wiese to Ben Stokes. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

    That is now Joe Root's best score in ODIs.

  • 36.6 - FOUR! Morne Morkel to Ben Stokes. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs.
