62.5 - M Ali to D Olivier
OUT! ENGLAND WIN BY 177 RUNS! Ali cleans the last man straightaway to clinch the victory and series for England! How apt as he has been the star performer for the team in this series and he picks up another 5-fer. It was a loopy ball on off and Olivier tried to prod at it off his front foot. The ball took an outside edge and flew to Stokes at first slip who took a regulation catch. THE HOSTS WIN THE SERIES 3-1!
62.4 - M Ali to M Morkel
OUT! Morkel's stay in the middle has come to an end as Ali picks his fourth wicket. It was a loopy ball outside off and Morkel cleared his front leg to try and smack this over the bowlers head. He did not get the direction that he wanted as the ball flew towards mid off. Joe Root back-tracked and kept his eye on the ball to take a good jumping catch. England are a wicket away from a win now!
62.3 - M Ali to K Maharaj
Full and outside off again, driven towards long off for a single.
62.2 - M Ali to K Maharaj
SIX! Some runs in the kitty for Maharaj. It was a tossed up delivery outside off, Maharaj came down the track and sent it sailing over long on. There was a fielder in the deep but only as a spectator.
62.1 - M Ali to K Maharaj
A short ball on middle, pulled towards square leg.
Ov 62: 0 1 0 0 0 W | 1 Run, 1 Wkt
61.6 - J Anderson to K Rabada
OUT! Caught! Number 8 goes! Full and outside off, a touch wider, Rabada drove it uppishly. He could not get enough elevation but what a catch from Tom Westley at short cover. He leapt full stretch and took a wonderful catch. The end is nigh...
61.5 - J Anderson to K Rabada
The length is a touch shorter and KG defends solidly.
61.4 - J Anderson to K Rabada
Fuller again, now Kagiso looks to play the off drive but the ball goes off the inner half of the bat towards the bowler.
61.3 - J Anderson to K Rabada
Full and on middle, pushed back to the bowler off the inner half towards mid on.
61.2 - J Anderson to K Maharaj
Fuller and straighter, Keshav flicks across the line for a single. Ooohs and aaahhs from the fielders.
61.1 - J Anderson to K Maharaj
Outside off, Maharaj pushes inside the line but is beaten.
