Commentary
  • 28.5 - FOUR! David Willey to JP Duminy. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. JP Duminy smokes a cover drive to the boundary to finish off the match and series.

    South Africa bounce back with a win, but England take the series 2-1. It all started today with the chaos at the start of the first innings, where England crumbled to 20-6 after five overs. They did manage to get to 153, but that was way too short on a decent batting track. South Africa had no real troubles in the run chase to give themselves a little momentum boost heading into the Champions Trophy.

  • 25.4 - FOUR! Steven Finn to JP Duminy. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. No third man in place, so Duminy guides the ball past a diving gully fielder to the boundary for four.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Jake Ball to Quinton de Kock. Yorker, off stump no foot movement defending, missed. Both openers gone in quick succession. Terrific delivery from Ball. An accurate yorker is too good for de Kock, and he cannot jam the bat down in time to keep it out.

  • 15.1 - Jake Ball to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Hales.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Toby Roland-Jones to Hashim Amla. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, bottom edge. Maiden wicket in ODI's for Roland-Jones. Not a bad scalp either.

  • 14.1 - FOUR! Toby Roland-Jones to Quinton de Kock. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Buffet bowling from England here.

  • 13.3 - Jake Ball to Hashim Amla. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler.

    Lunch taken at Lords. A productive 11 over spell for South Africa, as they now move to being 95 runs away from victory. Amla has been quality, de Kock has been solid. England bowlers have been off the boil. Shouldn't be that long after this interval until these are knocked off.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Keshav Maharaj to Steven Finn. Stock ball half volley, to leg on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by de Villiers. Tame end to a poor innings from England. Finn tries to clip the ball into the legside, but pops it up to mid wicket for the simplest of catches.

    The hosts did well to get to above 150 after being six wickets down in the first five overs. Rabada and Parnell were quality up front, and the catching from the Proteas improved too. Bairstow, Willey and Roland-Jones provided a little bit of resistance, but Maharaj mopped up the tail with three wickets. South Africa are favourites to breeze home to a victory chasing down this small target. England need a miracle.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Keshav Maharaj to Jake Ball. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, bat-pad. Ball goes now. Adrenaline pumping, and he fancied hitting it out the park. Tossed up very high, Ball cleared the front leg and got a thick inside edge onto his pad before it clipped the top of the stumps. Maharaj has nipped in with a couple of wicket and looked impressive.

  • 29.4 - FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Jake Ball. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Similar to what Bairstow tried to do to Maharaj, but Ball connects superbly. He skips down the pitch and crunches it over extra cover for a one bounce four.

  • wicket: OUT! Stumped. Keshav Maharaj to Jonny Bairstow. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Bairstow perishes. End of a gutsy innings from the Yorkshireman. He runs down to the left arm spinner, and gets nowhere near the pitch. A hint of turn takes it past the bat and de Kock has plenty of time to dislodge the bails. South Africa almost have the job done.

  • 27.2 - Keshav Maharaj to Toby Roland-Jones. Stock length ball, middle stump on the back foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Morris.

  • 27.1 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Keshav Maharaj to Toby Roland-Jones. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to backward point for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Maharaj slids one into the pads of Roland-Jones, it skids on past the inside edge and thuds into the front pad. Huge appeal, but turned down, and South Africa review. Umpire's call on hitting the wickets. Slightly too far down leg for it to be overturned.

  • 22.5 - SIX! Chris Morris to Toby Roland-Jones. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs. Bumper from Morris, Roland-Jones is expecting it, so he shuffles back and hammers it over the fine leg boundary for a maximum.

England are pegged back again.

    This partnership is building nicely now, but it needs to continue a lot more for England to get back into the game. South Africa seem to have taken their foot off the gas, and require a wicket to get back into the swing of things.

  • 10.1 - FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Jonny Bairstow. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Bairstow springs back in the crease and thumps a drive off the backfoot through the covers. A bit of a loosener from Maharaj, and it is put away effectively.

  • 8.6 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Jonny Bairstow. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. A drive finally doesn't come off the outside edge! Bairstow murders it on the up through extra cover, and it whistles away to the fence. A risky shot given what's happened before him.

  • 8.5 - Kagiso Rabada to Jonny Bairstow. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 2 runs, fielded by Morkel.

  • 8.4 - APPEAL! Kagiso Rabada to Jonny Bairstow. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to slips for no runs, fielded by Amla, appeal made for L.B.W. Big appeal from Rabada for leg before, as he gets one to come back in this time. The ball passes the inside edge as Bairstow looks to drive, and clips the back thigh. Too high, so the appeal is turned down.

  • 7.1 - FOUR! Wayne Parnell to David Willey. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Parnell feeds Willey a full one onto his pads, and it is nicely whipped through wide mid on for four. England need plenty more of them to be competitive.

  • 5.6 - FOUR! Wayne Parnell to David Willey. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Willey feels for a wide one, and nicks one through the gap between slips and gully. Some fortune for England, but a poor shot again there.

  • 5.5 - Wayne Parnell to David Willey. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, thick edge to gully for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 5.4 - Wayne Parnell to Jonny Bairstow. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, well timed to deep square leg for 3 runs, fielded by Maharaj.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Adil Rashid. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to slips, by du Plessis. Rabada keeps pitching it up, England keep driving, and the outside edges are being gobbled up by the slips. The movement off the slope taking it away from Rashid, who cannot resist flapping at the ball, and another smart catch from Faf at second slip. Carnage.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Jos Buttler. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to slips, by du Plessis. A juicy half volley, Buttler fancies a big piece of it, but a flashing drive takes the outside edge again. Excellent catch from du Plessis diving to his left at second slip. South Africa are all over England.

  • 4.4 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Jos Buttler. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Rabada goes too straight again, and Buttler tucks it off the pads with some nice timing. He finds the gap at mid wicket, and it trickles all the way to the rope.

  • 4.3 - Kagiso Rabada to Jos Buttler. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 4.2 - Kagiso Rabada to Jos Buttler. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by de Villiers.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Alex Hales. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to slips, fielded by Amla. It's all going wrong for England. Hales with a very loose drive outside his off stump. Not much foot movement, a big waft, and the outside edge flies through to Amla for his second catch today.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Wayne Parnell to Eoin Morgan. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Sensational stuff from Parnell. A beauty from the left armer here. Perfect line and length, nipping away from Morgan, and it draws the outside edge to loop through to de Kock. Not much the England captain could do with that, just a quality delivery.

  • 3.5 - Wayne Parnell to Eoin Morgan. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Parnell, fielded by Morkel.

  • 3.4 - Wayne Parnell to Eoin Morgan. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 3.3 - Wayne Parnell to Eoin Morgan. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Parnell.

  • 3.2 - FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Eoin Morgan. Length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. South Africa have a Test Match field with plenty of slips and close in fielders. Morgan decides to counter that with an aggressive style. He charges down to Parnell and thunders a drive over the top for a one bounce four. Brave cricket from the England skipper.

  • 3.1 - Wayne Parnell to Eoin Morgan. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by de Villiers.

  • 2.6 - Kagiso Rabada to Eoin Morgan. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Maharaj.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Wayne Parnell to Joe Root. Seaming in half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad. What a start for South Africa, they have nipped out two in the first two overs. Parnell bowls a jaffer here, moving the ball back into Root just enough to pass the inside edge. The Yorkshireman went to whip it through the legside, slightly fell over the shot, and was trapped in front of middle. The visitors are making use of these bowler friendly conditions this morning.

  • 1.4 - Wayne Parnell to Joe Root. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Rabada.

  • 1.3 - Wayne Parnell to Joe Root. Yorker, outside off stump down the track Steer, to gully for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 0.6 - Kagiso Rabada to Joe Root. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Rabada.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Jason Roy. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to slips, by Amla. Rabada flings it down back in the perfect channel, in that corridor of uncertainty, and Roy snicks one to first slip. Prodded with hard hands, and a healthy edge is grabbed comfortably at shin height by Amla. Roy's poor form continues.

  • 0.4 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Jason Roy. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Wonderfully clipped off the pads from Roy. Rabada errs too straight and it is beautifully picked off through square leg.

  • 0.2 - Kagiso Rabada to Jason Roy. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
