21st over: South Africa 65-4 (Elgar 34, Bavuma 2). Thanks Vish. We just did this thing where he pointed to me like he was the director calling ‘Action’ as we did the transition. And action it is with Stokes bending them around corners. Excellent leave Bavuma as one jags back, perhaps two inches separating the ball and the bails.

“Not really worth opening the ticket office tomorrow I think!” suggests David Manby on the email. Not so sure about that. Bavuma is a proper Test player. You might get your money’s worth. Now watch, as he nicks off or something.

Notts have chased down Yorkshire’s 223 to win a T20 at Trent Bridge. The hosts’ overseas Dan Christian sums it up best, the highest successful T20 chase.

South Africa need 492 to win; England need 10 wickets

One number is bigger than the other. Much bigger. Warne’s annoyed, so I think we’ve all done our jobs. Anyway, in better news – look who has rattled off Durham’s first T20 hundred:

WICKET, DECLARATION AND TEA! Bairstow c Rabada b Maharaj 63 (England 313-8 dec)

JB swats Maharaj flat to long-off, Rabada is there and makes the take with a juggle. And that’ll do, says Joe Root. South Africa will require 492 to win. More to the point, they have see our four sessions to save the match – that’s the early tea. Six wickets and 160 of runs in rapid session. There was an inevitability about the declaration, Bairstow’s excellent hitting the best of England’s lower order. Maharaj earned his three wickets for South Africa. A cup of tea for me as well, as I hand back to Vish. Catch you for the final hour.
