Ball By Ball Commentary

Over 45. no runs. Bowler: Duanne Olivier. England: 10-133(rr 2.96)
45.2 OUT! Caught. Duanne Olivier to James Anderson. Short, down leg side on the back foot Steer, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. South Africa square up the series. Jimmy comes out and feathers a catch through to the keeper to give South Africa victory by a huge 340 runs. The visitors have been the better team in all aspects and they thoroughly deserved the win inside four days. It was the bowlers today who were outstanding and from ball one England were troubled by Vernon Philander (3-24) and Morne Morkel, who was very good but went wicket-less.England though still have the same problems with the top order and it might be something that they look at going into the next Test at The Oval along with the batting collapses they keep having. The series has now sprung to life and all eyes will be on the match on Thursday to see if England make changes or they stick with the same team.
45.1 OUT! Caught. Duanne Olivier to Mark Wood. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to gully, by Morris. Catching practice for Morris at gully. Wood fends a short ball off and gets a thick edge which loops to the fielder. Its nearly the end.
Over 44. 3 runs. Bowler: Keshav Maharaj. England: 8-133(rr 3.02)
44.6 Keshav Maharaj to Liam Dawson. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Maharaj.
44.5 OUT! Caught. Keshav Maharaj to Stuart Broad. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air under control to deep mid wicket, by Morkel. Morne Morkel did not have to move more than five yard. He was picked out by Broad with perfection, trying to hit the ball out of the ground. Maharaj has his third and South Africa are two wickets away from victory.
44.4 Keshav Maharaj to Stuart Broad. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
44.3 Keshav Maharaj to Liam Dawson. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Morris.
44.2 Keshav Maharaj to Stuart Broad. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Philander.
44.1 Keshav Maharaj to Liam Dawson. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Amla.
Over 43. 4 runs. Bowler: Vernon Philander. England: 7-130(rr 3.02)

43.5 Vernon Philander to Stuart Broad. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot driving, well timed to cover for no runs, run save by Kuhn.
43.4 FOUR! Vernon Philander to Stuart Broad. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement driving, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. Just clears the man at backward point. A taller man than Bavuma might have taken it.
43.3 Vernon Philander to Stuart Broad. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Kuhn.
43.2 Vernon Philander to Stuart Broad. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Elgar.

41.4 Vernon Philander to Stuart Broad. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Bavuma.
41.3 OUT! Caught & Bowled. Vernon Philander to Ben Stokes. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed back to bowler, fielded by Philander. England are crumbling. Stokes falls for 18 to a very good return catch from Philander. It was hit pretty hard and low but Vernon bent down and grabbed the ball with both hands.
41.2 Vernon Philander to Liam Dawson. Length ball, off stump on the back foot working, to deep square leg for 3 runs, fielded by Olivier.
41.1 Vernon Philander to Ben Stokes. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Morkel.

40.3 OUT! Caught. Keshav Maharaj to Moeen Ali. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to square leg, by Kuhn. Hes gone now. Top edge sweep and the ball goes straight to Kuhn at square leg. South Africa will be feeling happy after they thought they should have had Moeen out earlier in the over.
40.2 APPEAL! Keshav Maharaj to Moeen Ali. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Philander, by de Kock, appeal made for Run Out. The umpire is going to check the run-out but Moeen is home safe.
40.1 APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Keshav Maharaj to Moeen Ali. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. Got him! Moeen gets a feather through to de Kock but he has reviewed immediately. Ultra-edge seems to suggest that there isnt much there unless it is really thin. The decision is overturned, not out.

38.6 FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Moeen Ali. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Morkel. Gift for Moeen. The big fast bowler dives over the ball and sees it go to the rope.

37.3 FOUR! Morne Morkel to Moeen Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, thick edge past deep backward point for 4 runs. Brilliant delivery which squares Moeen up. Morkel doesnt get any reward though as he watches the ball run away across the outfield.
37.2 Morne Morkel to Moeen Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Kuhn.
37.1 Morne Morkel to Moeen Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Elgar.

That will be Lunch on day four and South Africa once again have taken the upper-hand. They have bowled superbly this morning and taken four big scalps and left England in tatters at 79-4. It seems to be a matter of when not if South Africa will win this match and they will be hoping to do it today but the batsmen will want to try and show some fight and not get rolled over.

19.1 OUT! Bowled. Chris Morris to Joe Root. Out-swinging yorker, off stump on the front foot defending, missed. Wow. Unplayable delivery from Chris Morris. Yorker length with a touch of swing and Root is beaten all ends up. Not much any batsmen could do against a delivery as good as that.

12.5 OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Vernon Philander to Gary Ballance. Length ball, to leg no foot movement defending, hit pad. Brilliant review from South Africa. At first Faf was unsure but his bowler convinced him and what a decision. The only problem was where it pitched but as soon as it was in line Ballance was in trouble. It was a lack of bounce that also did for the England number three and South Africa are looking to finish this today.

England are in a heap of trouble after South Africa put them to the sword yesterday and left them a world record chase if they are to win. The South African bowlers will be fresh and raring to go and their burst last night put real pressure on the two opening batsmen. England will know that they have to get through the new ball relatively unscathed and batting should get slightly easier except for the odd ball which has misbehaved. We are in for some fascinating Test cricket.

4.6 Vernon Philander to Alastair Cook. Seaming in back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Kuhn. England see out the final 15 minutes of the day. They were made to work very hard but the important thing was not to lose a wicket. The day has belonged to South Africa though and they are firmly in the driving seat with two full days to try and bowl out England. They also have 473 runs to play with so Faf will be able to place inventive fields to try and get the wickets.The English bowlers tried very hard all day but they were not helped out by the pitch and the situation. A few balls were misbehaving though which will encourage the Proteas bowlers. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

NEW BALL. APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Morne Morkel to Alastair Cook. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement working, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. What a start to the innings. Morkel traps Cook on the crease and the umpires finger goes up immediately. Cook without hesistation asks for the review and it seems a good decision. Impact good but the ball is bouncing over the stumps.
