OUT! South Africa are bowled out! Back of a length delivery, angling away from Rabada, who looks to slap it away by making room but gets a faint nick and Buttler behind the stumps, stretches to his left and takes a good catch to complete the proceedings. ENGLAND WIN BY 72 RUNS!

NOT OUT! Slight hesitation in the middle! Back of a length delivery, angling away, Rabada looks to pull it but gets a bottom edge onto the pads. The ball rolls on the off side and Kagiso takes off for a single but is sent back by Parnell. Morgan at cover, rushes to the ball and scores a direct hit at the striker's end. The ball ricochets behind and the batsmen run through. Buttler appeals for run out and the umpire takes it upstairs. The replay shows that Rabada's bat was grounded!
