Ball By Ball Commentary

Over 63. 7 runs. Bowler: Moeen Ali. South Africa: 10-202(rr 3.21)
63.5 OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to Duanne Olivier. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Stokes. Moeen Ali gets another five wicket haul. Two in two for the spinner, as the ball skids on to take the outside edge, and Stokes cleans things up at slip. England were thoroughly professional in wrapping it up quickly, but the tail of South Africa showed little fight once their captain was dismissed. Hashim Amla also showed his class earlier in the day with his super knock of 83. But overall England were the dominant team, and their bowlers, along with some attacking batting, took the game away from their opponents. The series finishes 3-1 to the home side.
63.4 OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to Morne Morkel. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Root. South Africa crumbling to a heavy defeat now. Morkel goes first ball. It is a tame dismissal as he tries to go for the big shot straight away. No chance of getting his timing right this early on, and he shanks it into the hands of mid off.
63.3 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Broad.
63.2 SIX! Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Maharaj fancies playing some shots here. He might as well have a bit of fun. He charges down and launches Moeen over the long on fence for six.
63.1 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to backward square leg for no runs, fielded by Malan.
Over 62. 1 run. Bowler: James Anderson. South Africa: 8-195(rr 3.15)
62.6 OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Kagiso Rabada. Half volley, outside off stump no foot movement driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Westley. Anderson gets a third, England have eight! Anderson goes round the wicket and it works. Rabadas feet are nowhere to be seen, and he limpy drives into the hands of a short cover fielder. Terrific catch from Westley, using all his jump and height to grab on.
62.5 James Anderson to Kagiso Rabada. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Roland-Jones.
62.4 James Anderson to Kagiso Rabada. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Anderson.
62.3 James Anderson to Kagiso Rabada. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Broad.
62.2 James Anderson to Keshav Maharaj. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Malan.

61.5 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track pushing, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Root.
61.4 FOUR! Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. A gentle chip over mid ons head by Maharaj. Didnt look to hit it too hard, and got the elevation to get it away for four.
61.3 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Malan.
61.2 Moeen Ali to Kagiso Rabada. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Westley.
61.1 Moeen Ali to Kagiso Rabada. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Anderson.
Over 60. 4 runs. Bowler: James Anderson. South Africa: 7-188(rr 3.13)

Over 59. 1 run. Bowler: Moeen Ali. South Africa: 7-184(rr 3.12)
59.6 Moeen Ali to Kagiso Rabada. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ali.

59.4 Moeen Ali to Kagiso Rabada. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Anderson.
59.3 APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to long on for 1 run, direct hit by Ali, fielded by Root, appeal made for Run Out. Smashed back to Moeen, who dives and gets a fingertip onto the non-strikers stumps. Appeal for the run out, but Rabada had his bat grounded well behind the line.
59.2 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Stokes.
59.1 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Cook.

58.2 James Anderson to Kagiso Rabada. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
58.1 OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Faf du Plessis. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. Such a loose shot from du Plessis after a grinding innings. Anderson hangs the ball outside off to entice the South African batsman and the bait is taken. A big wafty drive, with not a lot of foot movement, and the outside edge is taken. The end is now in sight.
Over 57. 1 run. Bowler: Moeen Ali. South Africa: 6-183(rr 3.21)
57.6 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Broad. Moeen Ali looking threating with the ball. It is turning so much for him, it is hard to see South Africa surviving this one. Just a matter of time it seems.
57.5 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to backward square leg for no runs, fielded by Roland-Jones.
57.4 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Cook.

Over 55. 3 runs. Bowler: Moeen Ali. South Africa: 6-182(rr 3.31)
55.6 Moeen Ali to Keshav Maharaj. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track flick, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Root. That is tea on day four. It looked as though South Africa were going to get through that session wicketless, and cause some nerves in the England dressing room. Moeen Ali had other ideas though. Hashim Amla played wonderfully well alongside his captain, but three quick wickets from the off spinner mean that his side are into the tail, and only four wickets from victory. England can finish things off in the last session here. Only Du Plessis can save the visitors now.
55.5 Moeen Ali to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Westley.

54.2 FOUR! Toby Roland-Jones to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Attacking stuff from Faf. He skips down the pitch to the paceman and clubs it through mid on for four.
54.1 Toby Roland-Jones to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Broad.
Over 53. 5 runs. Bowler: Moeen Ali. South Africa: 6-173(rr 3.26)
53.6 OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to Theunis de Bruyn. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Stokes. Two in three balls for Moeen! What a cricketer this man is turning out to be for England. De Bruyn was expecting some turn, but the ball skidded straight on to take the edge once more. Stokes was ready and waiting to gobble it up at first slip. All of a sudden this could finish quite quickly. Great period for the hosts.
53.5 Moeen Ali to Theunis de Bruyn. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
53.4 OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to Quinton de Kock. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to slips, by Cook. Tossed up high and wide into the footmarks, de Kock is tempted into the drive, and edged straight to second slip. It was very full, but still spun enough to take the nick, and Cook took a sharp chance down low.
53.3 Moeen Ali to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ali.
53.2 Moeen Ali to Faf du Plessis. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Westley.
53.1 FOUR! Moeen Ali to Faf du Plessis. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Du Plessis also gets through to a half century. Shovelled a full delivery through wide mid on, and Root cannot make the diving stop. Excellent innings from the Proteas captain.
Over 52. 5 runs. Bowler: Toby Roland-Jones. South Africa: 4-168(rr 3.23)
52.6 Toby Roland-Jones to Faf du Plessis. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Anderson.

51.2 OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad. Englands main man in this series, Moeen Ali, gets the vital wicket of Hashim Amla! South Africas number three is back in the crease to clip to leg, but the sharp spin takes the ball past the inside edge. Hit on the knee roll, he shuffled across his crease, but the umpire says not out. England review for the third time today, and it is the second time it has paid off. Impact in line and hitting leg stump. What a crucial breakthrough.
51.1 Moeen Ali to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run.
Over 50. 7 runs. Bowler: Toby Roland-Jones. South Africa: 3-162(rr 3.24)

23.5 APPEAL! James Anderson to Hashim Amla. Seaming away length ball, off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Bairstow, appeal made for Caught. A pearler from Anderson. Like a quick leg break from the veteran. Excellent decision from the umpire, as it looked as though Hashim snicked behind. The ball flicked the back thigh through to the keeper though, so Amla survives.

22.4 APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings, appeal made for L.B.W. Amla hides the bat behind the pad when defending, so there is a huge appeal for leg before. He was clearly outside the line, but England think that he isnt playing a shot. Umpire says not out, and it wouldve crashed into the wickets. Interesting moment.

19.6 OUT! Caught. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Toby Roland-Jones to Temba Bavuma. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. England go to lunch with a third wicket in the bag. Roland-Jones again doesnt appeal for the caught behind. A nagging delivery outside the off stump, Bavuma hangs the bat out, and gets the finest of edges through to the keeper. Excitement behind the wicket, but the umpire originally gave not out. A second review taken, and a spike on ultra-edge means that Bavuma has to go.Great session for the home side. Awesome bowling from Anderson and Broad up front. They probably deserved more than they got. Just need seven wickets to win, and the hosts will be confident of wrapping it up before the end of the day. Afternoon session to come after the break.

18.6 FOUR! Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Brilliantly played by Amla. He goes right back in the crease, waits for the ball to turn, then whips it through the legside off the hip. Timing was sensational.
18.5 Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Westley.

16.5 APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Temba Bavuma. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, by Jennings, appeal made for Caught. Half a shout for a catch at bat-pad, but Jennings at short leg quickly said there was no contact with wood. Sharp spin from Moeen early on. Ominous signs for South Africa.

15.2 FOUR! Toby Roland-Jones to Temba Bavuma. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Streaky boundary for Bavuma. He has a little feel for it outside off stump, and gets a thick edge that rolls along the turf. Out of reach of the diving gully for four.

Anderson and Broad are turning it on at Old Trafford. Still have Roland-Jones, Stokes and Moeen to come. Where is the relief going to come from for them?

11.1 OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Heino Kuhn. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to slips, by Cook. Jimmy joins the party. No swing, but seam on this occasion, and Kuhn goes fishing outside the off stump. A hard prod away from his body, and a healthy edge flies through to Cook at first slip. It was coming. South Africas cautious defence is playing into Englands hands.

9.6 James Anderson to Hashim Amla. Out-swinging back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Ali. South Africa going nowhere. So difficult to score with the accuracy of Anderson and Broad though and the pitch is doing all sorts. They need to scrap their way through this period in whatever way possible.

7.2 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. James Anderson to Heino Kuhn. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Bairstow, appeal made for Caught. England are convinced that Kuhn has nicked one behind, but the umpire is unmoved. A corker of a delivery from Anderson, swinging it sharply away from the opener. A tentative prod forward, but it misses the outside edge. The review was taken, but replays confirm that the onfield was correct.

4.4 OUT! Caught. Stuart Broad to Dean Elgar. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. Its a jaffer from Elgar, he actually did well to get some bat on it through to Bairstow in the end. Angled into the left hander, jagged away off the seam, and it kisses the outside edge through to the keeper for the catch. Perfect start for the hosts. It looks incredibly tricky for the batsmen in these conditions.

These are ideal conditions for the swing of Jimmy Anderson. He is hooping it round corners and squares Kuhn up here. Looks to clip the ball to leg but edges between the gap in the slips for four. Wonderful bowling.
