All times stated are UK

  1. SA 88-1

    “Top edge central, that,” chirps Jonny Bairstow as Temba Bavuma misses on the sweep.

    YJB isn’t happy about Bavuma running down the middle of the pitch.

    The umpire is having a word now as well.

  2. Post update

    I think the first two overs of Root were a good call. Perhaps the third was one too far.

    SMS Message: If Root gets de Kock out for third time you’d all call Morgan a genius. Fickle. from Matt, Shoreditch

    If Root gets de Kock out for third time you’d all call Morgan a genius. Fickle.

  4. drop-catch

    Bavuma dropped on 28

    Close! Temba Bavuma nicks Adil Rashid and the ball flies very quickly to Joe Root’s right at slip.

    Root gets fingertips on it. Would’ve been a blinder.

    Moeen Ali then does tremendous work to chase the ball down and pull it back inside the rope, saving one run.

  5. Post update

    Adil Rashid is on in his 100th ODI.

    England playing the hits now – Rashid and Moeen bowling the middle overs.

  6. SA 80-1

    De Kock 40, Bavuma 25

    Solid start from Moeen, keeping South Africa to just four singles.

    England could do with picking up a couple of wickets though.

    Moeen Ali enters the fray for his first bowl in international cricket since August…

  9. six

    SA 76-1

    De Kock 38, Bavuma 23

    Hello!

    First six of the match as Quinton de Kock picks it up early and flicks the ball powerfully over deep mid-wicket.

    And that’s time for drinks.

  10. comments

    Max Headroom:Pathetic from England. Bowlers are dominating and then Root comes along and hands them the game. Poor decisions… Why play Rashid if you’re going to bowl Root?

    Jack Allum:This experiment with Root will not work by the looks of it. We’ve got proper spinners in the team. Give them a go…

  11. SA 68-1

    I don’t think bowling Joe Root is the right call here – it’s allowing South Africa fairly easy runs from one end while Chris Jordan keeps it tight at the other.

    Quinton de Kock picks up a dragged back delivery early to scythe it sweetly through third man for four.

    That’s eight from the over.

  12. SA 60-1

    Chris Jordan has continued the fine work of the opening pace bowlers, bowling at good pace and with tight lines and lengths.

    Just one from his third over.

    The commentary box at the Wanderers has to be one of the highest in world cricket.

  14. SA 59-1

    Hmm. Joe Root will bowl bad balls – he over-pitches here and Temba Bavuma caresses it through the covers for four.

  15. Vince helps Sixers to success

    ICYMI, England’s James Vince is a Big Bash winner after his Sydney Sixers franchise beat Melbourne Stars in Saturday’s final. Vince scored 323 runs in 15 matches.

  16. SA 51-1

    De Kock 23, Bavuma 14

    Chris Jordan puts his hands to his head as Quinton de Kock taps one off his pads. Would’ve been plumb if he’d missed it.

    Miserly again from Jordan – just three from the over.

    Crowd slowly filling up. Today started as an overcast day, but there’s more and more blue sky overhead now.

  18. Root drags it back and De Kock doesn’t miss those, cutting away through point for four.

  19. SA 44-1

    Quinton de Kock has nicked Joe Root for four.

    Where was the slip?!

  20. Post update

    England do now turn to Joe Root, who bowled Quinton de Kock cheaply in the abandoned second ODI and also bowled him (for 107 granted) in the first ODI.
