Over 4.1 M Morkel bowls a good length delivery to Keaton Jennings, out Caught by de Kock!! Jennings is on move as he looks to defend, never in position to play that and all he could manage was a thick outside edge to the left of de Kock.

Over 18.1 VD Philander bowls a good length delivery to Gary Ballance, out Bowled!! Good length ball jagged back in and Ballance was pushing forward well in front of his body, the inside edge takes a deflection and clatters into the stumps.

Over 29.1 M Morkel bowls a good length delivery to Joe Root, out Caught by de Kock!! Good length ball outside off, just a hint of away movement - that has been there all day, Root goes for the ambitious drive and nicks it to the right of the keeper.

Over 36.3 Keshav Maharaj bowls a tossed up delivery to Ben Stokes, out Caught by de Kock!! Maharaj loops it up, gets it to drift just a touch on off and then dip down as it turns just enough to get an inside egde on Stokes's tentative forward block. Onto the pad then and a juggler for QDK. 

Over 40.1 Keshav Maharaj bowls a tossed up delivery to JM Bairstow, out Bowled!! Pitches on middle, turns away, just enough to beat the outside edge on the uncertain defence. What's next - the timber's cleaned up.

Over 47.1 CH Morris bowls a good length delivery to Moeen Ali, out Caught by du Plessis!! Moeen Ali is on the back foot, thinking about a bouncer and tries to drive a length ball from there, ends up slicing towards backward point. 

Over 47.2 CH Morris bowls a pitched up delivery to SCJ Broad, out LBW! Broad is on the back foot, tries to work from there and misses. The ball struck on the pads and pitching in line too.

Over 48.2 Keshav Maharaj bowls a tossed up delivery to Liam Dawson, out Caught by Amla!!. Liam Dawson sweeps, manages just a top edge that skies behind square on the on-side. Amla settles under it.

Over 51.5 CH Morris bowls a good length delivery to Mark Wood, out Caught by du Plessis!! Another well-directed bouncer, one that climbs on him, gets big as he dangles his bat out in desperation. Off a thick outside splice for second slip to go reverse-cupped
