OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Imran Tahir. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Root. Tahir goes first ball, he's guided it straight to Joe Root at first slip. Stokes has two wickets in two balls and England complete a dominant victory here at the Oval. Expectations had been set high but these eleven men sure lived up to them today. After leaving some runs out there with the bat England were electric in the field, setting the tone from the very first ball. Each of the bowlers knew their role and executed their plans perfectly, the pressure proving too much for South Africa in the end. That's all from me at the Oval for today, join us again tomorrow when we'll be at Trent Bridge in Nottingham to see Pakistan take on the West Indies.

OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Kagiso Rabada. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Plunkett. Well struck by Rabada but Ben Stokes can do no wrong today and it's gone straight to Liam Plunkett at deep backward square. England have been impressive today.

OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Hashim Amla. Off cutter bouncer, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Banged in short and Amla tried to hook from somewhere above his head. It would probably have been a wide had he not got a little top edge through to Buttler. Amla goes and this game moves closer to its conclusion.

OUT! Caught. Jofra Archer to Rassie van der Dussen. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Ali. Morgan throws the ball to Archer and he's delivered again. Four dot balls followed by a bouncer and van der Dussen mis-times a flat-batted shot. The ball loops up in the air and Moeen takes a simple catch. What an impact this man has had with the ball, he's living up to his billing and he looks pumped too.

APPEAL! Adil Rashid to Andile Phehlukwayo. Googly length ball, down leg side on the back foot defending, hit pad to silly point for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Well I think Phehlukwayo is a very lucky boy indeed. He went back to a very full googly and was struck on the pad. Not out was the decision on the field but England reviewed and were confident. It's landed millimetres outside leg stump, otherwise I think it was out.

Kagiso Rabada to Liam Plunkett. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis. Well I don't think either side will be jumping for joy nor will they be down in the doldrums after that first innings. England could perhaps have scored more but just as each batsman was looking to really push on they got out. South Africa made it difficult for them in the latter part of the innings and England will need to learn from that. We could be in for a close game here, England are going to have to be good in the field and with the ball in hand to defend this score.

OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Ben Stokes. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Amla. Stokes tries the reverse shot again (more of a reverse pull if anything) with the men in the offside in the ring but he's hit it straight to Hashim Amla. Even Stokes was finding it difficult to really get hold of the ball there towards the end with there being no pace to work with. I'm sure the coaches in the England camp will be taking note of that.

That's a great take in the deep by the South African captain diving to his left. Again there's no pace on the ball from Ngidi, his execution has been excellent in this spell. England are not having things all their own way here at the Oval, these last few overs will be very important.
