    Update 1839 local (1639 GMT) – RAIN IS BACK! And it’s a bit heavier than the last time. Very teasing. The players are forced off the field and this time the groundsmen are out with the bigger covers. This is really frustrating for everyone. Stay tuned and hang on to the thread of hope…

  • 10:09 PM IST

    The only cover that was protecting the playing area is peeled off. The players are back on and we have not lost any overs this time.

  • 10:07 PM IST

    Update 1834 local (1634 GMT) – The players are going off and the covers are coming on. Wait on, it seems that the rain has stopped. The umpires are waiting in the middle and now they are calling the players back on the field. Huge cheer from the crowd! Only the playing area is covered at the moment.

    11.2 Chris Jordan to Temba Bavuma, out, OUT! Excellent use of the review from England. Bavuma has to walk back and looks like everyone will have to walk back with him as it has started to rain a bit heavily. Jordan strikes in his first over. Slightly shorter around off, Bavuma goes on his back foot and looks to pull. The ball does not usually bounce much in Durban (gone are those bouncy days) and this one too doesn’t. Bavuma misses his attempted shot and the ball hits him on the thigh pad of his back foot. The English players put in a huge appeal but the umpire turns it down. Jordan and Bairstow are confident and they convince Morgan to go upstairs. Morgan signals the ‘T’. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge first shows there is no bat involved. Ball Tracker then comes and England need all three reds as the on-field call is Not Out. The tourists get all three reds in the Ball Tracker as it shows the ball is hitting the leg pole. The on-field decision is overturned and the star from the last game has to walk back to the pavilion.

    Time to trouble the third umpire! England have gone for the referral after the lbw appeal against Bavuma was not entertained by the umpire. He is struck high on the back leg. There is no wood on the Ultra Edge and the Ball Tracker finds it to be crashing onto the leg stump.
