Commentary
In over# 78
Runs : 1 Bowler: Mark Wood Wickets : 1
Over 78. 1 run. Bowler: Mark Wood. South Africa: 10-274(rr 3.51)
77.1
W
OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Anrich Nortje. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Another strangle down the legside which is backed up by the technology. Good use of the review system from Root to wrap up the game and the series. 3-1 in South Africa is a brilliant effort from this young England side.Super day of Test cricket which see-sawed both ways. First England were on top then South Africa battled back and asked the English camp plenty of questions. Once the partnership between the impressive Rassie van der Dussen and Faf du Plessis was broken though the rest fell like a pack of cards.Hard fought series between two tough teams and now it is all eyes on the white ball arena which starts on the 4th February.

W
OUT! Run Out. Joe Root to Anrich Nortje. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, to mid on, fielded by Sibley, by Buttler. Things go from bad to worse for the Proteas. Hug mix-up in the middle as Nortje sprints for the single but his partner is ball watching. Both end up at one end with the ball going to the other.

W
OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Woakes. That's the wicket England were after. It was always going to be nervy while de Kock was at the crease, especially when he's swinging the bat. One shot too mamy though and Woakes takes a simple chance.

OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Vernon Philander. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Not the way Vernon Philander would have wanted to go out. Strangled down the legside as the ball brushes the glove. Every single person at the ground stands and applauds a great career. Nice touch also from the England players to go up to him and shake his hand. What a man.

SIX! Beuran Hendricks to Mark Wood. Back of a length, down leg side backing away driving, well timed in the air under control over deep cover for 6 runs. And again, Wood with six of his own, he gives himself some room to hit the ball onto the off-side and creams one for six.
97.1
6
SIX! Beuran Hendricks to Stuart Broad. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Tame short ball to Broad, he pulls it away over deep mid-wicket for six, South Africa don't look interested here, the wheels have come off.
In over# 95
Runs : 6 Bowler: Dane Paterson Wickets : 0
94.3
6
SIX! Dane Paterson to Stuart Broad. Slower length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Slower ball from Paterson smashed down the ground for six, that maximum also brings up the fifty partnership in just 27 balls.
In over# 94
Runs : 6 Bowler: Beuran Hendricks Wickets : 0
93.3
6
SIX! Beuran Hendricks to Mark Wood. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. Six! Expensive over so far for Hendricks, 14 off it so far, Wood pulls this one for six again.
In over# 93
Runs : 12 Bowler: Dane Paterson Wickets : 0
92.6
6
SIX! Dane Paterson to Stuart Broad. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs. Six more! Broad hit the short ball well, pulls Paterson for six. South Africa need to stop this final wicket partnership, not only because the batters will lose focus in the field but also because runs are being piled on for England, increasing their lead.
92.2
6
SIX! Dane Paterson to Stuart Broad. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Broad with another big drive, this time for six, superb timing. Broad showing his quality at the crease for England, the first time in a long while.
In over# 91
Runs : 6 Bowler: Dane Paterson Wickets : 0
90.6
6
SIX! Dane Paterson to Mark Wood. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control over deep backward point for 6 runs. Six from Wood! He's going to throw his bat at everything now that Broad is in with him, this could get out of hand if Wood keeps striking them this well.
In over# 61
Runs : 6 Bowler: Dwaine Pretorius Wickets : 0
60.5
6
SIX! Dwaine Pretorius to Joe Root. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Six! Root absolutely crushes this! That's more like it! Root looking to get some quick runs to end the days play.

50.5
6
SIX! Joe Denly to Rassie van der Dussen. Leg spinner short, middle stump on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Dragged down halfway down the pitch and Rassie has ample time to pick his spot. Decides to take the ball over the top and clears the fence easily.

26.5
6
SIX! Joe Root to Rassie van der Dussen. Off break length ball, down leg side down the track Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. How about this for confidence. Takes on the man at deep midwicket and clears him comfortably. This is a tactic the England captain did not expect to see.
