    There is some drama going on here.

  • 1:20 AM IST

    19.6 Tom Curran to Bjorn Fortuin, out, OUT c Adil Rashid b Tom Curran. South Africa have lost their seventh wicket.

  • 1:18 AM IST

    Bjorn Fortuin is the next batsman in. Rassie van der Dussen is into his ears straightaway. Do what you want, but do not take less than two! Poor Bjorn, what fortune! To come out at such a stage. Nothing that Rassie can do. Or de Kock. Just hope that Fortuin gets good enough bat on this. 3 to win, 2 for a Super Over.

  • 1:18 AM IST

    19.5 Tom Curran to Dwaine Pretorius, out, OUT! Impact umpire’s call! Wickets hitting umpire’s call and the decision stays. South Africa need 3 from the last ball. Exactly what England needed in the last game. Curran bowls one more yorker this time. Pretorius shuffles across and looks to flick but misses. He gets hit on the pads. An appeal and up goes the finger. Pretorius is walking back disappointed. However, both his captain from the dressing room and van der Dussen want it to be reviewed. Pretorius does take it. Replays roll in and Ultra Edge shows a spike as the ball passes the bat. That though was of the ball hitting the ground. They move forward and it shows that the on-field call stays. An excellent knock from Pretorius comes to an end. Heartbreak for him but he really played well.

  • 1:16 AM IST

    Pretorius is walking off as he has been giving out LBW! Quinton de Kock from the pavillion is screaming and signaling that signal the ‘T’. Van der Dussen too is calling Pretorius back and wants him to review. DP does so. Stokes is arguing that there was a message from inside but the umpire does go ahead and he takes it upstairs. Looks out though. Let’s see Ball Tracker. Inside edge? Yes! Hang on. Getting carried away. No inside edge. The bat has hit the ground.

  • 1:14 AM IST

    19.4 Tom Curran to Dwaine Pretorius, 2 runs, NOT OUT! A brilliant dive from Pretorius saves him. This is a yorker on middle. Pretorius works it through mid-wicket. They take one and go for the second. Stokes picks the ball up and fires it to the keeper. He whips the bails off. Not a big appeal from the English players but it is still taken upstairs. Replays roll in and the umpire has a look at a few of them as the bat seems to be in the air when inside the crease. However, it as grounded before and hence, it is ruled in the favor of the batter. 3 needed in 2.

  • 1:13 AM IST

    The umpire has taken it upstairs! However, there was hardly any appeal from the England players.

  • 1:11 AM IST

    19.3 Tom Curran to Dwaine Pretorius, FOUR, FOUR! 5 needed in 3 now! Pretorius you beauty! Curran offers width now and bowls it wide outside off. DP reaches out for it and hits it wide of the fielder at sweeper cover and bags a boundary. Pretorius is absolutely pumped up.

  • 1:10 AM IST

    19.2 Tom Curran to Dwaine Pretorius, SIX, SIX! The early biggie which South Africa needed in the over. 9 needed in 4 balls. You have to favor the batting side now, right? One more slower one and this time it is on a length. Pretorius was waiting for it. He tonks it over the long on fence for a huge one.

  • 1:09 AM IST

    19.1 Tom Curran to Dwaine Pretorius, no run, A dot to begin! A lovely slower one outside off. Pretorius is done in by the pace. He swings way too early and misses.

  • 1:09 AM IST

    Now then, who will bowl the last over of the game? The series is on the line here, high pressure, Stokes? Curran? It is Tom Curran. The youngster has been given the responsibility. Can he hold his nerves here?

  • 1:08 AM IST

    18.6 Chris Jordan to Dwaine Pretorius, 1 run, A single to end which means 15 needed in the last over. A yorker on off, DP jams it out towards cover for one.

  • 1:07 AM IST

    18.5 Chris Jordan to Dwaine Pretorius, FOUR, EDGY FOUR! Handy, handy boundary! South Africa won’t care how they come as long as they do. A full toss outside off. Pretorius swings but it goes off the outside edge and to the third man fence.

  • 1:06 AM IST

    18.4 Chris Jordan to Dwaine Pretorius, 2 runs, Another two! 20 needed in 8 now! One more yorker. DP looks to jam it out but it goes off the inner half through mid-wicket for a brace.

  • 1:05 AM IST

    18.3 Chris Jordan to Dwaine Pretorius, 2 runs, Tremendous stuff! Good running though! A yorker on middle, it is jammed out towards mid-wicket and the batters take two. 22 needed in 9 balls. Need a big hit do the hosts.

  • 1:05 AM IST

    18.2 Chris Jordan to Rassie van der Dussen, 1 run, Just a single! Jordan though gets away with one there! A full toss on middle, van der Dussen looks to go big but it is a little too quick. He mistimes it high up in the air but it lands safe in the mid on region. A single.

  • 1:04 AM IST

    18.1 Chris Jordan to Dwaine Pretorius, 1 run, Dropped! He actually saved a boundary there! It was clobbered! A full ball around off, Pretorius smashes it towards Jordan who sticks his left hand out but it does not stick again. A single as the ball rolls on the off side.

  • 1:02 AM IST

    17.6 Mark Wood to Rassie van der Dussen, no run, A dot! Still a top over for the hosts! 26 needed in 12. Full and around off, it is smashed but straight to cover. 19 from the over.

  • 1:01 AM IST

    17.5 Mark Wood to Rassie van der Dussen, FOUR, FOUR! 26 needed now in 13. South Africa back in the game! A very full ball outside off, van der Dussen smashes it through covers and it races away to the fence. Still a ball to go, can he end it well?

  • 12:59 AM IST

    17.4 Mark Wood to Rassie van der Dussen, SIX, SIX! Van der Dussen is not going down without a fight! This game is not done yet. 30 needed in 14. Full and on the pads, right in the zone. Van der Dussen flicks it way over the mid-wicket fence for a huge one.

  • 12:59 AM IST

    17.4 Mark Wood to Rassie van der Dussen, wide, 1 run, WIDE! Down the leg side, van der Dussen looks to flick but misses.

  • 12:57 AM IST

    17.3 Mark Wood to Rassie van der Dussen, SIX, SIX! Out of the ground! Wood misses the yorker and ends up serving a full toss. Van der Dussen sends it sailing over the long off fence for a biggie. 37 in 15, can he end the over brilliantly? Two balls to go.

  • 12:56 AM IST

    17.2 Mark Wood to Dwaine Pretorius, 1 run, One more yorker on the pads, DP squirts it out towards deep square leg for one. Singles are something England won’t mind.

  • 12:56 AM IST

    17.1 Mark Wood to Rassie van der Dussen, 1 run, Another delivery which is extremely full, not easy to hit those. The batter only manages to hit it towards cover for one.

  • 12:55 AM IST

    Mark Wood returns. 3-0-20-2 are his figures so far.

  • 12:54 AM IST

    16.6 Chris Jordan to Dwaine Pretorius, no run, A dot to end an over which has probably won England the game and helped them level the series. Full and on off, Pretorius keeps it out towards the left of the bowler. He sets off for a run but is sent back. He sees Jordan misfield and then goes again but is sent back once again. Rightly so, van der Dussen would want to keep strike. 45 needed in 18.

  • 12:53 AM IST

    16.5 Chris Jordan to Dwaine Pretorius, 2 runs, No hat-trick. Misses his yorker by a little. It ends up being a full ball on middle, Pretorius works it through square leg for two.

  • 12:53 AM IST

    Dwaine Pretorius will face the hat-trick ball.

  • 12:52 AM IST

    16.4 Chris Jordan to Andile Phehlukwayo, out, OUT! KABOOM! Cleans him up! Once again Jordan is on a hat-trick. It is another corker of a yorker. Right in the blockhole on middle. Too good for Phehlukwayo. He tries to jam it out but fails to get his bat down in time and it hits the stumps. Pin-drop silence here as they know, their side is staring down the barrel at the moment.

  • 12:51 AM IST

    Andile Phehlukwayo is the new man in.
