南非对英格兰 - 事情发生了

您好,欢迎来到第五天的比赛 - 这是一个非常令人兴奋的第五天,我们必须感谢Graeme Smith的出色而及时的宣言。 在我们开始之前,只需几点简单的想法。

尽管吉米安德森说过, 英格兰队无法赢得这场胜利 音高太慢而且平坦。 击球太受抑制了。 这有点不公平吗? 我真的不这么认为。
测试板球很棒。 阿拉斯泰尔库克和安德森面对一个体面但不是很大的攻击这个球场应该是磨砺。 但这些都是巨大的时刻,特别是在第一个小时。 今天可以决定这个系列赛(英格兰队在国外是一个缓慢的先发球员:他们真的,真的只需要挂在那里)。 安德鲁·斯特罗斯迷你时代的暂时前进动力很可能依赖于今天早上发生的事情。
库克和伊恩贝尔今天可以节省他们的溅射测试职业生涯。 注意:一个漂亮的小波浪72将不会,重复,不,做

克里斯埃文斯写道:“为了回应维克马克斯 - 布雷斯南怎么样?当然不是理想的但是在球上可以提供类似的威胁并可能在七分(哇)击球”。 不理想是对的。 布雷斯南似乎是一个体面的全心全意的球员。 但是你有点期待他在新西兰踢球。 大约在1983年。

南非人出局了。 库克和安德森正在路上,看起来非常好学。 那里的凉爽,有点阴天。 下午可能下雨。 但是,可能也没有。

加里·奈勒对贝尔表示支持:“一个漂亮的72可能不会,但如果贝利以100-4的比分进入并在四小时内看到72平局,那么他已经完成了连续第二次测试的工作。”

第7名结束:英格兰11-1(库克4,安德森6)来自De Wet的好,直滑的东西,其中大部分时间是一个孤独的半决赛以一种可怕的嘶吼声唱耶路撒冷。 库克以他的讨厌方式进行辩护并设法留下一对夫妇。 那里没有很棒的动作,但你只需要在第五天的比赛中击中其中一个裂缝。 Ian Copestake敦促:“我希望在英格兰阵营中有一些老式的精神激情.Dongmbuster的主题曲调达到了11,就是那种东西。请不要取悦每个可实现目标的Blairite列表英格兰队的组成成员。“ 团队努力是的,但我担心午餐时间突然不可阻挡的崩溃。

第8局结束:英格兰16-1(库克4,安德森10) Morkel来自另一端,他今天真的可以成为他的摇摆反弹的人。 安德森扮演一个华丽,闪烁的后脚镰,Duminy停在一个深深的沟壑,然后闪过下一个四点到一点。 那是91.8英里每小时,但宽度太大,可爱的卡里普索式拍摄。 有趣的是现在看安德森蝙蝠有多么有趣,他曾经是这样一个小天才。 而Ranil Dissanayake正准备废话:“害怕Gary Naylor对贝尔的评价是球。如果贝尔完成了他的工作,英格兰将有一个第一局的领先,因为他在一个不错的片段得到了一个体面的五十,让他们有机会迫使胜利。贝尔是一个问题,因为他非常好,但不足以决定测试。“ 球,嗯? 战斗谈话。

便门! Anderson c Boucher b De Wet 10(英格兰队16-2)安德森去了,他在一个短暂的防守球员身上,只是轻轻一推,也许是为了向Boucher伸出援手,后者潜入水中接球。 就是这样。 对于游客来说可怕的开始,他们真的需要坐上新球一点。

特罗特是新人,他在折痕上做了漫长的事。

第9局结束:英格兰16-2(库克4,特洛特0)安德森的抓球从腿部一侧脱下手套,从他的臀部挡住一个像样的紧身,快速的球。 然后De Wet带着三个保镖开到Trott,他们全都躲过了。 我以为他们都是很棒的伙伴,一直都在吃饭。 然后,特罗特沿着地面将一个完整的球沿着第三个滑道边缘移动,并且由于内侧边缘而在另一个内线中幸存下来。 这是一个很好的小计划开始,几乎也有效。

Keith Flett仍然闻到......希望。 “库克已经有了设计师胡子的开始,虽然这是模特的公立学校变体。它可以为英格兰的机会提供一些光线。” 是否有公立学校的变体? 库克不去布伦特伍德学校吗? 我认为,不严格公开,下摆下摆。

第10局结束:英格兰队以17-2战胜(库克5号,特罗特0队) Morkel继续向库克队打出一记残余线,他的怪异的角度突然出现,而脚踝突然在最后一刻突然戳出来。 一些不均匀的反弹在那里,但幸运的是,这个庞大的胡子厨师不直 - 很快,93英里每小时。 加里·奈勒正在反击:“第六位击球手确定了两项工作:(i)第一局领先;(ii)在第二局中打出一场比赛挽救。直到贝利在两个方面都失败了他的角色,我们不应该太苛刻。别忘了在加的夫的第五天挽救比赛对赢得灰烬至关重要。“ 我确实认为他在第一次失败了。

第11局结束:英格兰队18-2(库克6,特洛特0)这两位新球保龄球运动员通过直接保龄球让库克处于压力之下。 库克仍然看起来像一个没有打了30年的人拼命想要做什么,并低头发现他手里拿着一把花锹。 这应该是痛苦的吗? 他只有24岁。快乐在哪里? De Wet以88-89英里每小时的速度打保龄球,看起来有点像Dale Steyn克隆,只是没有同样的威胁。 Ranil Dissanayake希望听到一个完整的听证会:“回应加里:我的电子邮件第一次被编辑短片缩短了,但我确实继续声明,鉴于英格兰的攻击远离家乡以证明打击6名专家是合理的,第六,必须做一个包含水密的案件。贝尔失败了。“

第12局结束:英格兰队以19-2战胜(库克7号,特罗特0队)莫克尔在库克和禁区外打满了保龄球。 这是通常的计划,但他不应该忘记长度球背面球场的上下性质。 伊恩·科普斯塔克说:“库克并没有被布伦特伍德学校列为老男孩,但弗兰克兰帕德却是。那么这就是一所优质学校。” 你是对的。 这是贝德福德(我认为有点偏执)。 四流魅力模特Jody Marsh去了布伦特伍德,我相信兰帕德的一年。 这是一个人才输送带。

第13局结束:英格兰队21-2(Cook 8,Trott 1) De Wet在短球上有一些不错的反弹,由库克打出单打,他以一种不寻常的(对他来说)自由的方式打出了那个投篮。 下一个特洛特保持有点低,并击中垫,然后他最终离开标记轻推腿。 Andy Hodgson写道:“也许波兰这里的极度寒冷使我的精神力量陷入困境,但是加里naylor对Ian Bell的辩护,他甚至在加的夫打球?” 看看你流血的自我, 然后回到我身边。 这是什么? 谷歌?

现在它是砾石嗓子苏格兰流行侏儒Makhaya Nutini到碗上。

抱歉。 对不起Makhaya。

14日结束:英格兰22-2(库克8,特罗特2)英格兰队不会赢得这场比赛 - 当然 - 但是我们希望这两个人不会陷入困境。 它们可以在最好的时候变得更加笨拙。 你必须把东西搬到那里,不要让投球手过完后就把碗倒在你身边。 Ntini开始时会对球场中的某些东西产生影响。 哈里斯正准备推出他的绿色和金色品牌的垃圾桶。

15日结束:英格兰22-2(库克8,特罗特2)哈里斯击出一个绝对的zinger,拉近了特洛特的防守弓箭的边缘。 这是一个非常好的方法来开始一个咒语,在那里提出一些疑问。 特罗特刺了一个少女。 有没有其他人看过一些SA球员的评论,特洛特一直有天赋,但“他的脑袋有点混乱”? 你不会猜到的,事实上我认为他是另一回事,一个稳定的头脑。 但也许他是秘密的Withnail而不是我。

16日结束:英格兰26-2(Cook 12,Trott 2) Ntini向Cook做了一个更直的选择,因为它击中了他的前垫,但史蒂夫“Nugget”戴维斯摇了摇头。 非常正确的重播表明它是在外面投球,据Sky Ntini说,在对抗左撇子的测试中只有五个lbws,这是非常少的。 我喜欢史蒂夫戴维斯,他是一名优秀的裁判(看他现在有点震惊)。 SA有两个库克沟和两个奇怪的矮人,两侧都有翻转的高空作业/轻弹。 他用一个严厉的腿侧夹子做了四个回应,并且出于某种原因迎接了Bob Marley的一阵激烈的搅拌。 也许是厨师参考?

17日结束:英格兰26-2(库克12,特罗特2)这是“井井有条的哈罗!” 因为哈里斯对特罗特施加了压力,特洛特现在看起来充满了忧伤和搔痒。 另一个少女,你只是觉得如果他继续这样的话,他会很快得到Trott,从折痕中捅出来。 Andy Hodgson回来了更多:“看起来我的怀疑是正确的,卡迪夫没有贝尔。也许这只是加里的一个热闹的讽刺。太微妙了
我在早上5点醒来后确信我昨天搬家时已经把我女孩的圣诞礼物留在了外面。“那么它是什么?

18日结束:英格兰26-2(库克12,特罗特2)另一位少女。 Cook被第三个击球击中,这个球从全长拉开并且保持有点低。 这是我认为理想的库克情况,以及他在球队中的表现:丑陋,坚韧的击球和坚实的防守。 英格兰几乎是第一个小时,只是守夜人走了 - 这不是一个糟糕的开始,但他们看起来也非常被动,谨慎和折痕,这更令人担忧。

便门! Cook c Smith b Harris 12(英格兰27-3)这就是我的死亡之吻,因为当他向前倾斜时,哈里斯将一个人转向库克,球从内侧边缘飞到了史密斯手中腿。 库克跋涉,现在将是KP,而整个南非的场景都在中间。

19日结束:英格兰队28-3(Pietersen 1,Trott 3) Pietersen马上就出现了方形腿,至少我们不会看到英格兰只是坐在这里,至少有一名击球手将参加比赛奇怪的一击。 Andy Hodgson可以独家透露:“她极不可能做到这一点,所以我可以放心地发现它是一个全长的镜子,太大了,不能被任何理智的人所遗忘,就像我在周围检查时发现的那样。” 非常好。

20日结束:英格兰队33-3(Pietersen 6,Trott 3) Pietersen带着一个荒谬的卡通式巨大的冲刺向前和对手,Nitni跑进碗里,覆盖角度和低弹跳,但也暴露了他的腿部残肢。 通过四个盖子放松了一个更加饱满的球,并没有比那更有力地击球,并且使用了更多的顶级球。 但是Morkel在封面上也是一个非常蹩脚的尝试。 什么时候KP最后一次为英格兰队出场? 伊恩·杜鲁门已准备好陈述显而易见的(但通常未说明):“别介意让他成为队长,难道手镯系列不是给库克长时间休息的理想时间吗?他需要意识到他的位置并不能保证。我们为什么要考虑让我们最糟糕的击球手队长超出我的范围!“ 我也是,伊恩,我也是。

在中间喝。

对阵Pietersen的问题以及他最后一次打出一局真正重要的局面时,对阵三月份的Windies就是102。

21日结束:英格兰34-3(Pietersen 7,Trott 3)当天第一次横扫Pietersen划桨哈里斯,然后我们又回到了Trott的蹲伏前锋。 那里的蝙蝠周围有很多喋喋不休,其中大部分都是快活的,事实上格雷姆史密斯似乎有一个球。 特洛特正在挖掘自己进入一个非常深的洞,只是在那里进行防守。

22日结束:英格兰队34-3(Pietersen 7,Trott 3) De Wet重新回到了Ntini身上并投出了一些类似的高80s,滑倒并且相当直接上下,但更多地攻击了树桩。 Pietersen扮演他很好的站立在折痕和积极的防守(你知道我的意思)甚至做他壮观,双臂举起的假。 伯纳德休斯也做了一些挖掘。 “嗨巴尼 - 根据Statsguru Pietersen的统计,在对阵南非的第四局比赛中平均19.00分(对阵澳大利亚的比赛超过100局)。嗯。” 没关系统计数据,他是一个真正品质的球员,但真的需要一些东西让他再次适合英格兰队。 如果他离开,今天对他来说可能是一个真正的补品。

23日结束:英格兰34-3(彼得森7,特罗特3)哈里斯继续向世界上最无生命的人特罗特提出要求。 SA现在有六个人围着蝙蝠,甚至最后一个球的长跳也在整体防守中被击倒。 他现在有42个球有3个球,真的最好不要出去。 加里·奈勒(Gary Naylor)敦促:“雷格拉,斯旺尼为船长!”。 这是一个好点。 斯旺现在已经在测试团队中占据了一席之地,他是英格兰最大的板球运动员之一。 他会是一个好队长,比库克好多了。 但是在这个国家,我们只选择队长,而不是笑话者。 斯旺作为队长将是一个可爱的举动。

第24局结束:英格兰38-3(Pietersen 8,Trott 5) De Wet继续进行,他的第三个球在拉动时非常拼命地打了一个环状的两个,但是足够安全,Trott狡猾地迷住了所有的守门员拍摄,永远。 这是一个快速的球,高达93英里每小时。 Naylor回来了,这次他不赞成没有投篮:“在High Veldt试图获得平局时没有投篮没什么错.Atherton和Russell在1995年的214场比赛中面对727个球。” 阿瑟顿虽然以精确,钢铁和决心进行辩护。 1995年,他不是特罗特式的刺激者。

第25局结束:英格兰队41-3(Pietersen 9,Trott 7)哈里斯仍然在保龄球比赛中(他们说)被低估了左臂慢速传球。 他的手臂很低,当他打出更快的球时,它实际上就像Malinga一样。 虽然丑陋但有效。 Pietersen将一个人推到了一边,整个SA队都进入了Trott The Block,然后他们摆弄了两条到深的方腿。 Matt L是一个清醒的理智声音:“我同意Swann对于队长会是一个可爱的举动,但我们真的想要把队长的压力放在一个显然只是喜欢打板球的人身上吗?Isn有可能会把这种乐趣从他身上挤掉,说实话,斯旺玩得开心是目前观看英格兰最好的事情。“

26日结束:英格兰46-3(Pietersen 14,Trott 7) De Wet继续前往Pietersen,他在Viv爵士的风格中走过并从一条腿上翻了一下球。 很高兴最终看到一点包含侵略。 Mike Selvey刚刚指出,阿拉斯泰尔库克作为一名唱诗班以奖学金的身份去了贝德福德学校。 毫无疑问,即使是现在,他也只能在更衣室的一个黑暗的角落里自言自语。

我对库克的讽刺言论当然不是迈克的。

第27局结束:英格兰54-3(Pietersen 22,Trott 7)这是一个很好的老KP,就是这样做的方式,当他向哈里斯的第一个球大步跳过并通过盖子四次将它带到英格兰五十 ,然后跳过并且在第三个球中段放松了另外四个球。 这是当天拍摄的一段距离,这也是特洛特用另一种方式打一场测试板球的教训,因为一些近距离的外野手出来了,哈里斯只用一个滑动和一条短腿移动到了检票口。 约翰·斯塔克(John Starbuck)持谨慎乐观的态度:“英国避免在这里失败的可能性很小,最合适的庆祝活动是什么呢?除了胜利之外,香槟将超过顶级,啤酒有点平凡。某种类型的鸡尾酒,或许是鉴于季节,港口或马德拉岛。“ 有什么想法吗?

第28局结束:英格兰队58-3(Pietersen 25,Trott 8) Trott似乎被激怒了:他有一个失误,一个人错过了另一个方式。 那些Morkel保镖也快:根据速度枪93英里每小时。 Pietersen然后放松了另外三个慵懒的封面驱动器,而Duminy正在努力摆脱一些兼职的下旋。

29日结束:英格兰队59-3(Pietersen 26,Trott 8) Pietersen对Duminy的第一个球有一个轻率的削减,一个宽阔的短球,但无法将其击败。 然后他绝对把一个横扫到一个单方面的深方腿,并避免另一个令人讨厌的解雇给一个兼职的投球手,这可能是不公平的,我似乎认为他很容易。 对于被Duminy的第一个球击败的Trott的Sill point,slip和short-leg而且我很抱歉,但是对于旋转,他看起来相当沙哑,甚至是相当平均的旋转。 克里斯伯恩在船长辩论中说:“我希望施特劳斯在未来几年仍然是英格兰的队长。但到了时候,来到这个男孩。贝尔怎么样?他的优势在于他的比赛如此受到抑制,没有什么可能让它变得更糟。“

第30局:英格兰60-3(Pietersen 27,Trott 8) Morkel继续进行,保龄球很快,但有点宽,并没有施加太多真正的压力。 麦圭根奇怪地说道:“这里希望英格兰更衣室承诺我的老板球俱乐部在我们需要一个击球手得分一个世纪并保存一场比赛时所用的同样的激励:之后浴室里所有小伙子的一个漂亮的肥皂擦拭“。 顺便提一下,特洛特有59个球。

31日结束:英格兰66-3(彼得森27,特罗特13) Duminy仍然保持他友好的小休息。 我确实喜欢一个投球手,他的衬衫袖子紧扣着。 它看起来很优雅。 史密斯在树桩麦克风里喊道:“让我们看看你男孩的金色手臂!”,但是这是一个短球,特罗特在经过了一个半小时艰苦的艰苦跋涉之后,用四条腿穿过他的第一个边界进入两个数字。

到目前为止,英格兰队在本届比赛中已经取得了55场比赛,其中有27场比赛。

第32洞:英格兰68-3(Pietersen 28,Trott 14) Morkel继续向Pietersen投球,后者在禁区内挤出一个并开始急转弯但是外野手Duminy无法干净地接球。 投掷和直接命中都会让击球手陷入困境。 Morkel继续向Pietersen提供完整的残余线路,Pietersen疯狂地发出新手套的信号,就像一个易怒的老人被迫在餐厅等待。

短暂的延迟和一些嘘声随着Plunkett终于出现在Pietersen的手套上。 史密斯有几句话。 虽然很棒的东西。 Liam Plunkett再次参加一场测试赛。

第33局结束:英格兰队72胜3负(Pietersen 28岁,特罗特14队)四人左路,特罗特从Duminy身上留下了一个整齐的球,鲍彻只是错过了。 接下来是一些友好的广泛的东西,英格兰将非常乐意面对这一点。 如果他们以平局离开这场比赛,本卡弗知道他的是什么:“我记得喝了一种叫做'Drummy'的东西 - 这是2:1混合物中的端口和白兰地(不记得哪个方向)。适当的装饰饮料,像板球,国际和奇怪的英国人。“

哈里斯从另一端回来代替莫克尔。 蝙蝠周围的六名男子为特洛特,两个傻点。 他们拿着米奇。 “打那个松散的一块!” 叫鲍彻。

第34位结束:英格兰队77-3(Pietersen 28,Trott 18)特洛特终于停止对待哈里斯,就像他在Shane Warne在犁过的场地上打保龄球一样,将哈里斯打到四腿之间,以提升五十岁的伙伴关系

那是午休时间。 英格兰队得分66,更重要的是失去了两个门票。 他们仍然有五个适当的击球手,三个仍然在展馆中,用来保存这个游戏,并且球场并没有真正做多少。 这对英格兰来说是一个磨难,但事情看起来比库克去的时候要好一些。 Sean Ingle在半小时左右的时间里回来了

所以,我们再来一次在天空电视评论框中,有一种谨慎的乐观态度,即英格兰的两名南非人可以稳稳地将这场比赛引向平局。 不过,这些博彩公司更有信心:平局仅为2-5,南非以13-5获胜,英格兰以130-1获胜。 然而,午餐后的早期检票口会带来伊恩贝尔。 他是一个男人,你想要为自己的生命而战吗?

第35位:英格兰队81-3(Pietersen 30,Trott 18) Morne Morkel在9场比赛中以19投9中,以一个有趣的战术开始下午休息:在腿部保龄球打保龄球。 到目前为止,对Bodyline的这个点头没有奏效,KP为一对夫妇轻拍了一条腿,同时还有一个再见,一个没有球。 “我能说到目前为止我对Trotty的比赛有多少兴趣吗?” 加里奈勒说。 你可以,加里。 “对他来说不是华而不实的35,因为他似乎很欣赏你不能把游戏带到反对派,如果你被困在一台笔记本电脑后面分析你是怎么出来的。那些专家们对他的无力感喋喋不休地给自己带来了压力,但是这取决于他是否感觉到 - 我怀疑他不会这样做。另一方面,无论是在中间突然爆发,都会给新击球手带来压力。“

第36局:英格兰88-3(Pietersen 35,Trott 18) Friedel de Wet(7-3-12-1)接管高端。 过去和他的碗头发一样疯狂,Pietersen从中获取了五个 - 四个来自一个不合时宜的驱动器,在中途躲避Morkel笨拙的潜水,另一个从简单的单身躲避。 “午餐后的早期检票口会把保罗科林伍德(不是我前面说过的伊恩贝尔)带到折痕处,是的,他是一个我想要为我的生命而打击的人,”保罗·托比说。 “再说一次,对我来说快速崩溃的一线希望就是有机会在凌晨3点之前上床睡觉,明天早上6点开始变得更加美味。”

第37位:英格兰89-3(Pietersen 39,Trott 18) Morkel继续尝试腿侧,但Pietersen正在舒适地处理他。 这个音调目前拥有与Enid Blyton小说一样多的恶魔。 “快速提问,”迈克尔戴维森说。 “有没有人有什么建议可以购买我的板球爱好女友作为圣诞节的袜子?” 我以前的同事劳伦斯·布斯(Lawrence Booth)的最新消息是什么?屠夫们有什么用途? 和其他精彩的语录。

38岁以上:英格兰队96-3(Pietersen 44,Trott 19)对于Pietersen来说是一个巨大的让步,因为De Wet的直接传球击中了球场并且在中场前面的腿上撞到他之前就死了。 它会出来......但是De Wet的脚距离线路一厘米。 De Wet摇摇头 - 正确 - 没有球的决定然后看着KP击中他的下一次交付四。

第39位:英格兰96-3(Pietersen 44,Trott 19)保罗哈里斯,他的旋转器通常比Sid Little更直,产生了一个绝对的裂土器,而不是旋转得很厉害,并且错过了特洛特的外边缘的一个g whis的胡须。 南非对某事的吸引力 - 一个优势? 难倒? - 但它没有出来。 少女。 “对于现在的想法,它必须是Gideon Haigh关于灰烬的书,”Tom Richards说。 “如果周围有一个更好的板球作家,那我就是一个荷兰人。”

第39局结束:英格兰100-3(Pietersen 48,Trott 19) De Wet的速度肯定在那里 - 有几个90英里每小时的喷射器,包括一个敲打Pietersen的垫子 - 但KP再次能够挑出孤独的坏球并将其引导至4,这次是通过落后点,提升英格兰的100分。看看赔率,平局现在是1-3,南非100-30,英格兰46-1。 他们实际上无法赢得这个,他们可以吗?!

第40位:英格兰106-3(Pietersen 49,Trott 24) Pietersen有机会单打一次推进到中途,但在失误后到达那里。 然后,今天一直是顽固分子模型的特罗特,在通过方腿将哈里斯派往边界之前摇摆不定。 现在剩下55个过剩:南非需要7个小门,英格兰需要258个小门。 “当弗雷迪成为耶稣时,Jarrod Kimber'是一本相当好的,更有趣的灰烬书,”Andy Bradshaw说。 “在Jarrod的第一本书中,当他摒弃了九十年代最伟大的科幻电影”火星攻击“时,这一决定绝不会受到基甸前锋的影响。

第41位:英格兰112-3(Pietersen 53,Trott 25) Pietersen将De Wet推到了midwicket,那是他的50次(76次送出,7次四次)。 “回复:你的评论'英格兰无法赢得它,不是吗?' 不,他们不能,“马特L.”我很惊讶你,肖恩,我本以为你是一位经验丰富的英格兰观察家,他已经学会了必要的愤世嫉俗。其中一个皮特森或特罗特很快就会疯狂地射击,另外一个人将在稍后进行一些比赛。然后Colly和Bell将击败舱门并试图杀死比赛.Bell将进行一次愚蠢的射门,而Colly和Prior将把这一点转向终点线,可能还有一个已故的检票口下降以增加一些最后的戏剧性。“

第42位结束:英格兰116-3(Pietersen 53,Trott 30)哈里斯有很多人挤在球棒上(虽然,奇怪的是,没有中场)但是特罗特仍然完全没有穿过,并且在中途获得另一个边界。 “对于圣诞节的袜子填充物,我可以推荐Alastair Cook的”我的板球年2009年DVD“吗? 加里奈勒说。 “或许也许是一个更好的想法?严肃地说,克里斯托弗道格拉斯的道格拉斯贾丁的传记很便宜,非常值得一读。” Ditto Duncan Hamilton关于Harold Larwood的书。

43岁以上:英格兰116-3(Pietersen 53,Trott 30)保龄球的另一个变化是Ntini替换De Wet并且产生了一个整洁的少女。 “英格兰能赢吗?” Robin Hazlehurst问道。 “不,但更有意思的是,什么样的抽签代表了道德上的胜利?在280-5结束这一天看起来对于英格兰来说是相当安全的,但这表明这个系列已经陷入僵局。加的夫风格在最后一小时内持续了9个不仅会更令人兴奋,它还会真正建立系列的其余部分 - 也许就像夏天一样把动力传递到英格兰;洋葱,我们指望你做一个蒙蒂。“ 我认为英格兰队将很高兴在这里获得280-5的胜利 - 任何形式的抽签都将代表道德上的胜利,尤其是在他们今天早上26-3之后。

第44位结束:英格兰队121-3(Pietersen 57,Trott 30) Pietersen围绕着这个温和转移的下午可能会变成一个激动人心的夜晚 - 在Trott拿到一个单身之后,Pietersen将Harris扫到了另一个边界。 后来在结束时,Amla在短腿上争抢一个接球......然而球只打了垫,而不是蝙蝠。 与此同时,来自我们的板球记者Mike Selvey:“Larwood的书很精彩,但Chris Ryan关于Kim Hughes,Golden Boy的书也是如此。” 它在圣诞节名单上迈克....

第45局:英格兰122-3(Pietersen 57,Trott 30) Ntini诱惑Pietersen在禁区外进入野外斜线,但幸运的是英格兰KP击中了空气而不是皮革。 与此同时,天空,侯赛因和劳埃德正在谈论能否赢得这场比赛。 侯赛因 - 一如既往 - 讲得很有道理。 印度也许能够做到这一点,因为即使他们失去了Tendulkar,他们也会让Sehwag,Laxman,Dhoni等人继续以同样积极的方式击球。 然而,一旦Pietersen走向英格兰,科林伍德将会稳定而又缓慢地击球,而贝尔则缺乏状态,而且跑动率会自动上升。

第46位:英格兰队123-3(Pietersen 57,Trott 31)来自南非的大吸引力,我认为他们声称是特洛特的击球手。 但也可能是lbw。 我们可能会在这里一段时间。 裁判员提到了它:Hawkeye表明影响是在线,但交付将错过树桩。 而且也没有涉及蝙蝠。 所以不要出去。 后来在结束时,Amla在短腿上有一只黑豹的反应,几乎让KP陷入了困境。 这项合作伙伴关系现在已经完成了69次关闭,这就是喝酒。

第47局结束:英格兰队127-3(Pietersen 57,Trott 36) Ntini继续绕着检票口前往Trott,后者一直打球并且未命中,然后抚平一个带来100合作关系的边界(关闭181次交付)。 “一个长袜填充物,实际上可以放入长袜中的一个:来自布鲁姆斯伯里的Jennie Walker的三分之二,”查尔斯·B说道。“在一场测试赛的五天里,一个女人介于两个男人之间,一个人坚持解释所有的规则,另一个认为这就像解释一个笑话,或者她得到它或她没有。她选择谁?只有140页才能找到。“

第48局:英格兰队133-3(Pietersen 62,Trott 37)下午从KP射门,他在开球到边界中段之前在球场上跳舞。 哈里斯看起来缺乏想法; 两次他在腿部桩外投球,两次KP用垫子投球。 同时Gary Naylor回来了。 “我刚刚在塔斯马尼亚的朋友Nestaquin告诉我,人群中有一条旗帜,上面写着GENDER TEST BROAD,”他说。

第49位:英格兰队135-3(Pietersen 62,Trott 37) Ntini继续绕过检票口。 他的第一次交付是在特洛特进行的,他从那里开始对lbw发出响亮的呼吁,但是这次交付在一个6英寸外的腿部残肢上投球。 在特洛特把他从腿上扯下来之后,Ntini转向了检票口,但他仍然没有对特洛特感到高兴,特洛特在他的第二次测试中已经是英格兰队在KP和施特劳斯之后的第三重要击球手了。 “Chistopher Douglas的Jardine传记?Christopher Douglas和Dave Podmore / Ed Reardon一样?说真的?” Tom Van Gucht问道。 汤姆,同样的。

第50局:英格兰135-3(Pietersen 62,Trott 37)所以它继续:Harris投球到Pietersen的垫子,KP主要满足于填补。 而哈里斯的负面策略几乎在那里工作,因为KP试图将交付送走,错过了,并且看着它几乎击中了他的树桩时感到恐怖。

第51局:英格兰队148-3(Pietersen 70,Trott 44) Ntini回到了检票口,但他的战术只是出血。 首先他过度投球,特罗特通过沟壑驾驶四个人。 然后他漂到了腿上,让特罗特穿过一条方腿。 这让Pietersen罢工,他们首先在另一个边界经过第二次滑动,然后将Ntini推倒在地。 Ntini将KP的防守阻挡在他最后的交付中 - 然后沮丧地将其投掷在树桩上。 英格兰现在需要216才能赢得比赛......

第52局:英格兰队149-3(Pietersen 70,Trott 44)更多防守外线腿部残骸 ,哈里斯打保龄球; 更多来自KP的填补。 南非显然希望彼得森能够自己出局。 偶然,
特罗特现在已经在128次交付中获得44次,执行率为34.4,这是Tavaresque的顽固性。 然而Gary Naylor还有另一个比较。 他表示,“Trotty和Thorpey在首次亮相对阵澳大利亚的比赛中均取得了第二局的成绩,并且比较也没有结束。” “来自选择者的电话真是太棒了。”

第53位结束:英格兰155-3(Pietersen 70,Trott 51)保龄球的变化,因为Morkel取代了Ntini,并且立刻有一个巨大的南非呼吁lbw对阵Trott。 我不确定为什么:球确实保持低位,但显然缺少腿部残肢。 A couple off Trott's legs brings up the 150 and then Trott brings up his own fifty (135 balls, seven fours, strike rate 37) with an elegant drive for four. Meanwhile the latest odds - 1-8 the draw, 14-1 South Africa, 16-1 England. England now need 209 to win ...

54th over: England 159-3 (Pietersen 73, Trott 52) Now here's a surprise: the big-boned Jacque Kallis, who wasn't expected to bowl until Durban, replaces Harris. He's bowling at a pretty good pace - there was one at 76mph there - and Boucher, who is standing to the stumps, does well to collect. Four off the over.

55th over: England 159-3 (Pietersen 73, Trott 52) "I was going to say that it's important for the rest of the series to crush the Saffers hopes by not giving them a sniff of victory and these two grinding out unbeaten tons," says David Hindle. But David? "But I keep looking at 40-ish overs and 200 runs and can't help saying 'this is still on'. Is it?" Well, England only need five an over, and the pitch is doing nothing. However, an England victory renains highly unlikely - with no fielding restrictions and a much looser intepretation of the wide rule than in ODI, South Africa can stick half a dozen men on the boundary and bowl well outside off stump if they need to. Maiden from the impressive Morkel.

56th over: England 159-3 (Pietersen 73, Trott 52) Kallis continues to fire cutters at late-period Dominic Cork pace (ie 75mph) and Boucher continues to stand up to him. There's a superb take and attampted stumping in that over, but otherwise Pietersen is happy to fend and block. it's another maiden. England need 205 to win from 39 overs. It's not going to happen, is it?

57th over: England 161-3 (Pietersen 74, Trott 53) This game is drifting towards a draw. A point I've made before, and will no doubt make again: too many pitches in Test cricket are too batsman friendly these days. Why not instruct groundsman to produce a four-day pitch? Games will inevitably, and rightly, spill over to a fifth day for all sorts of reasons, but at least the contest between bat and ball might be more even. Merkel confused Trott by bowling a couple of cutters that over, but otherwise there's little drama.

58th over: England 164-3 (Pietersen 75, Trott 53) Kallis continues to give little away, just one off the over. England now need 202 off 37 overs. "Do my eyes deceive me or are you telling us the German Chancellor bowled the last over?" says Eamon Maloney. 啊。 "What does she bowl, left-wing orthodox?"

59th over: England 169-3 (Pietersen 79, Trott 53) Runs! Pietersen takes a couple through midwicket and, after exchanging singles, adds another three down to third man. 这就是茶。 England need 195 to win off 35 overs, a prospect that is unlikely (the bookies make England 20-1 to win this, with the draw 1-10) but hopefully enough to make you follow the evening session with Barney Ronay. 感谢您的所有电子邮件。 Best, Sean.

你好。 I'm back for coverage right to the end of what seems certain to be a draw barring a bizarre collapse (not impossible) or Strauss declaring a bizarrely heroic and ambitious run-chase (impossible).

John Starbuck is now snowed in: "Worse still, I've no idea what we'll be eating for dinner, but let's hope it's not humble pie. If KP can still restrain himself from the old rushes of blood then we may well all get through this." England will get through it. It's done I'm telling you. But how lovely to be reminded in that last session of what a top class player Kevin Pietersen is and what a difference he makes to England's strut and swagger and scoring rate when he plays well.

60th over: England 172-3 (Pietersen 80, Trott 55) Harris is on again, wheeling away with his deceptive round-arm uglies. Trott works him for a well-ruin two to the leg side, and there's no great turn for all the now quite sombre "Well bowled!" stuff from Boucher.

便门! Pietersen run out 81 (England 172-4) Oh. My. God. A totally surreal run-out as Pietersen drops the ball on the off side and charges for a single without looking, only noticing that Trott hasn't moved as he reaches the far end. That was total suicide and an utterly ludicrous way to get out, never mind when you're saving a Test Match. De Wet just walked to the stumps and took the bails off.

62nd over: England 172-4 (Collingwood 0, Trott 55) Collingwood comes in in the most absurd circumstances. Trott shouted "Nooo!" as soon as KP hit the ball and started to run, but he just kept on going. It was actually quite funny, but also hare-brained and amteurish. England are now back in trouble (a little).

63rd over: England 175-4 (Collingwood 0, Trott 58) Harris still shambling in determinedly, bowling his determined left-arm shambles. Boucher shouts "let's have a look at Bell boys!" the sadist. One nice cover drive for three by Trott in that over.

64th over: England 180-4 (Collingwood 4, Trott 59) De Wet has a huge shout for lbw against Collingwood and it goes to review, even though it looked pretty leg side. And so it is, missing leg stump by miles. Then Collingwood edges a full ball with soft-ish hands and it drops short of second slip. Smith then brings in a silly mid-off for the bat-pad forward thrust and England can thank Pietersen's crazed running for all this renewed pressure, which is lifted briefly as Collingwood drives the final ball of the over for four through cover very nicely. As Tom Hopkins asks: "I've always been of the opinion that there's no excuse for getting run out in a Test Match. Talk me through why you'd even be going for a quick run in these circumstances?" If you're an ass maybe?

65th over: England 180-4 (Collingwood 4, Trott 59) Harris carries on and it's a lot of Yes Harry! Yes Harry! as though he is in fact vigorously copulating with his veteran wicketkeeper, rather than merely bowling a lifeless maiden that Collingwood blocks out.

66th over: England 182-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 60) De Wet is still running in very eagerly, his shirt a little untucked now, but not much happening with the ball. England's right-hand blockers nurdle a single apiece. And talk is already turning to the teams for the next Test. South Africa should have Kallis back bowling and maybe Steyn for De Wet (or even Ntini) so that's already a stronger team. England have a choice about balance. Do they play six batsman and four bowlers? Or do they include Luke Wright instead and play five bastmen, four bowlers plus one nice chap who fields well and has a bit of a go at everything else. For me it's obvious. There is no all-rounder. So you can't play one.

Gary Naylor is being charitable: "KP played five first class matches in the 2009 season. This innings required deeper concentration over a longer period than KP has had to deliver for a very long time - I reckon he was mentally tired and I reckon we should cut him some slack." But... being tired is no real excuse for an international sportsman. It's not as if he had 257. Plus they'd just had tea.

67th over: England 182-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 60) Harris still hurling his javelins. 什么都没发生。 Another moribund maiden. Andy Bradshaw says: "Owais Shah's probably soiled himself laughing at that run out". Which is a lovely image. And Mike Selvey raises an ironical eyebrow and offers an answer to Tom Hopkins' question: "I can offer two reasons - 'red' and 'bull'".

68th over: England 182-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 60) Wow, De Wet bowls a very quick bouncer that goes past Collingwood's nose at 94mph. That was a real effort ball in the middle of a decent tight spell. They keep showing Pietersen on the TV smiling and picking his nose and having a bit of a joke in his England vest. A fine, threatening maiden with the old ball and De Wet looks like a real workhorse.

69th over: England 182-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 60) Here's Harris hurling his World War One stick-grenades. A very tight line on off stump that Trott leaves and blocks and leans on. Still two slips and a short-leg for the non-existent turn and imaginary drift, and another maiden for Harris who has toiled through 22 overs so far.

70th over: England 184-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 61) De Wet is still going and this time he leaps wide of the crease and angles it in to Collingwood, hitting him on the pad. There's a big shout - but will they review it? No, says Boucher, who had the best view, and it was probably going over. Max Dowler argues: "Surely by KP's age stupid dismissals and Red Bull are both unforgivable?" how old is he now anyway? 28? 13? He does seem to have been around for a very long time in one form or other.

71st over: England 185-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 62) Duminy replaces Harris bowling his friendly off-breaks. Trott nudges a single down to third man and Collingwood dead-bats the rest of the over. Maybe KP should ditch the Red Bull have something more mature as a gee-up before he goes out, like a bowl of soup. Any better ideas?

72nd over: England 186-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 63) Ntini has come on for De Wet for a final go at flogging something out of this pitch. Before this Match Ntini had bowled 20414 balls in Tests. That's 20414 sprints in, 20414 leaps sideways and 20414 furiously committed angled right arm seamers. He never really seems very tired. Trott pulls a trampolining bouncer for a single. And Joel Chase wonders "So, should we expect KP to excuse his run out with "that's the way I play"? Again??" Yes, well, he also helped save the game let's not forget with his fluent and aggressive rearguard. That is also the way he plays and he is not England's problem right now.

73rd over: England 191-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 64) Still Duminy's delicately flighted off-breaks, the second of which beats both batsman and keeper for four sleepy byes. "Well bowled Japes," is the call. On teams, Gary Naylor suggests :"How about Adil Rashid for Belly in Durban? His batting in county cricket was excellent, spinners have done a lot of bowling in this match and, if the word is to be believed, Durban offers bounce which is the most important weapon for a leg-spinner." It looks like (a) Rashid isn't quite ready and (b) Strauss and Flower clearly have no faith in him at all.

74th over: England 192-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 65) Ntini goes round the wicket and is clipped off the Trott pads for one. Ntini still looks a tiny bit like Malcolm Marshall as he rushes in before he delivers. Julius Ayodeji muses: "In the oldest pub in England, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem hoping to avoid Ye oldest story in history "England batting collapse". I think we're safe today and we'll soon be seeing Ye captains shake hands and go off for an ice bath.

75th over: England 192-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 65) Duminy still ambling in and delivering his elegantly flung offies, with a nice little twist in the action and a whippy arm, but no real turn or drift or bounce. It's a maiden and it's also drinks. This is now just a countdown.

Tom Hopkins writes: "Is the identity of a potential fifth bowler the only thing we need to be thinking about? I'm not sure we won't need a new opening bat pretty soon." I think you're right. 但谁呢? That's the problem England have. Joe Denly doesn't look a better bet than Cook so Cook goes struggling on, having his net in a Test Match. There are no obvious candidates to force the issue unless I've totally missed someone. Michael Carberry? Er, Scott Newman?

76th over: England 192-4 (Collingwood 5, Trott 65) One ball from Harris that turns in his latest maiden over to Collingwood. And Gary Naylor thinks tiredness is an excuse for sloppily running yourself out on 81. "Test cricket is a very tough game, with batting all day for a draw away from home (yes, I know) one of its biggest challenges." I'm not convinced. Would Steve Waugh be tired? Or make the excuse that he was tired? I saw him make 153 once limping on one leg at the Oval. He didn't look tired.

77th over: England 195-4 (Collingwood 6, Trott 66) Some fiddled singles in another neat but unthreatening Duminy over. The pitch is so slow and his bowling so meek they can just watch it on to the bat and play from the crease. On Cook Al Stewart says: "Might as well keep the travel costs down, put out a call and see if there's a south african who fancies his chances at opening." Or how about giving Goochie a go. He still looks surprisingly youthful .

78th over: England 196-4 (Collingwood 6, Trott 68) More from Harris, and in fact an almost exact replica of his last over. On potential Cook replacements Paul Frame suggests: "Paul Horton? Stephen Moore? The pool for openers is a little dry as Strauss has been so successful over the last 5 years, he's not really allowed anyone else to enter the fray. The shame is that there aren't many openers averaging over 30 in County Cricket at the moment." And that is the problem. You've got to be sure whoever you bring in will score more than Cook, with his regular awkward half-centuries.

79th over: England 201-4 (Collingwood 10, Trott 69) Duminy with more off-spin of the most inoffensive type. The new ball is due at 80 overs and they will surely take it. Oh yes, Gary Naylor mentions James Taylor at Leicestershire who they say is the real deal as a Test batsman, with Trott moving up to open. Could be worth a go if we really think Trott is up to opening in Tests and if he's game. I just find watching Cook bat so sapping and tense-making, all that tinkering and fretting. Collingwood hammers a short ball to the offside square boundary to bring up the 200.

80th over: England 201-4 (Collingwood 10, Trott 69) Harris bowls a wide, flat-ish over to Collingwood that he basically ignores and they're taking the new ball . Ntini is pacing his run.

John Gresty also wants to see Rashid in: "Surely Gary Naylor's suggestion - Rashid for Bell - would strengthen both England's batting and bowling. Talk about a win-win situation. His fielding is of a similarly high standard as well. Is there anybody out there who doesn't want to see a legspinner in an England shirt?" I'd like to see him given a go. Not so sure about the quality of his batting in a Test Match, it's got to be all about the bowling, but why not? He's been on the scene for long enough now, no point in dying wondering.

81st over: England 205-4 (Collingwood 14, Trott 69) Ntini leaps wide and jags one back in that Collingwood leaves - always dicey against Nitini with his angle - gets hit on the pad and it's gone for a review. But it's not going on to hit the stumps so he's OK. Still, that really looked wrong. Using the bat is always the best policy. Collingwood follows that up with a lovely punched four through mid-off off the back foot, some lovely rhythm in that shot and right out of the screws. Robin Hazlehurst wonders: "Whatever happened to Ed Joyce as a replacement Cook? Wasn't he the best thing since beans on toast at some point, but then nothing much came of it?" Some would agree with you. Joyce did get cast aside quite quickly and he's a classy player.

We've had the signal for the last hour, which looks like someone gesturing across a crowded bar that they'll have another pint of Stella if you're buying.

便门! Trott c De Villiers b De Wet 69 (England 205-5) And that is a stunning catch by AB, diving down low to take the ball one handed at third slip as De Wet gets one to leap and catch the shoulder of Trott's bat. A really top class dismissal: great ball, great catch. And, oh blimey, it's Ian Bell.

82nd over: England 205-5 (Collingwood 14, Bell 0) De Wet really using the new ball well there, making Trott drop his bat in agony after that ball caught him on the thumb. England have five wickets left and 14 overs to play and it's a very good job this new ball didn't come ten overs earlier.

83rd over: England 205-5 (Collingwood 14, Bell 0) Collingwood leaves a couple from Ntini that bounce alarmingly high, certainly compared to what went before. Bell has looked quite solid so far, bouncy rather than nervous and defending the new ball, as ever, with some style. Paul Frame points out that this would actually be a really good time for Bell to score 72. And Ntini has a huge lbw shout off the final ball of his over against Collingwood from one that nipped back, but would have gone over. Good decision from Dar.

84th over: England 205-5 (Collingwood 14, Bell 0) De Wet bowls another straight and pacey over to Bell, who gets forward and settles into some perfectly orthodox defence and remembers to leave the one that rears outside off (not the one that;s going to hit your off stump). And Ben Dunn is cautiously optimistic. "Right, it is time for Bell to show he is a man. This is his Waugh-time. Step up and make a statement. "I am not a rabbit to whoever bowls. I am capable of mental strength." I am not refreshing the OBO as I know during the typing of this Bell will have left a straight one imagining the wind will blow it off its path."

85th over: England 205-5 (Collingwood 14, Bell 0) Ntini sends down a maiden to Collingwood, the last ball of which is a shooter that he plays brilliantly, digging it out late. That is great batting. And Phil Sawyer ponders: "It's just started snowing extremely heavily outside. Is it too early to decide that that's it for getting anything done today and might as well reach for the drinks cabinet?" Reach away I say. Nothing ever happens between three o'clock and bedtime on a Sunday, apart from "cosy" TV shows and mild depression.

便门! Bell c Boucher b De Wet 2 (England 207-6) Ah dear, Ian Bell. He's going to get it in the papers tomorrow, but this was a good ball, quick and in the channel on off stump and he played and edged and Boucher took it well. Can England really lose this from here? There are 10.4 overs to go.

86th over: England 207-6 (Collingwood 14, Prior 0) De Wet is bowling very wel and beats Prior outside off with a slippery full ball. England will be very grateful for Collingwood being out there now and - oh look - Pietersen seems to have stopped joking about on the balcony an instead looks quite worried.

87th over: England 208-6 (Collingwood 14, Prior 0) Ntini looks a lot less threatening than De Wet right now and Smith will surely bring on Morkel soon. Collingwood plays out a mild, non-scary maiden with a no-ball in it. And Guy Hornsby is getting it off his - and everyone else's - chest about poor old Belly: "Are we in 2007 all over again? I was halfway through typing an email about how my hangover was eased by waking up to find England putting up a stout readguard action with KP and Trott strangling the attack, sending us to an comfortable draw. But a suicidal run-out, a brilliant catch and a familiarly frightened schoolboy have resulted in my headache returning and another self-inflicted tense finish. We just can't close these out at the moment, can we? We should be taking comfort in a good day's batting and now Bell's put us back in the mixer. Not sure I can add much more to the no doubt flood of anti-Bell spleen, but that was just rubbish, wasn't it?" In Bell's favour, he got a good delivery with the hard new ball.

便门! Prior c Boucher b De Wet 0 (England 208-7) Oh that is a snorter from De Wet, a quick ball on off-stump that leaps and takes the edge of Prior's bat. Not much he could do about that and De Villiers is bowling them close to a win here.

88th over: England 209-7 (Collingwood 14, Prior 0)
De Wet just keeps running in, as he seems to have been doing all day, making a new "Uuuaggh!" noise now too. He has 4-46 off 20 overs and he looks the absolute business right now, a bowler coming back late in the day to produce a potentially match-winning spell. England are in real trouble here.

便门! Broad c Boucher b Harris 0 (England 209-8) A straight-ish ball on off-stump that Broad lunges at and edges to the keeper, and despite a pointless review request from England, that is plainly out. Brilliant captaincy from Smith, as Harris gets his man straight away. It is a collapse now.

89th over: England 211-8 (Collingwood 14, Swann 2) Harris came back on to bowl to try and get Broad out, South Africa presumably having spotted his unease against spin, and he did exactly that. Great stuff from the skipper. Swann plays a short ball through midwicket for two, Collingwood sending him back to keep the strike. England are in emergency survival mode here. And the KP-bashing starts here with john Cox: "All that talent and so little between the ears. Has there ever been, in any sport, a top-class player whose sheer dimwittedness was more frustrating than KP's??"

90th over: England 212-8 (Collingwood 14, Swann 2) De Wet still bowling quick and with some fire, but Collingwood blocks doggedly, a man in his element. South Africa have performed like champions with this new ball. Although had KP stuck about they might not have had the chance to get at that lower middle order. Six overs to go now. And Julius Ayedoji is back with his gloomy prophecies: "In the Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem there is a haunted galleon that brings back luck to all who touch it. I didn't but perhaps others did?" Maybe Ian Bell's been in there.

91st over: England 214-8 (Collingwood 14, Swann 2) Morkel comes on and immediately bowls short at Swann, but a bit wildly too. Swann defends stoutly and even goes for one of his big drives the cheeky scamp. On KP Andy Bradshaw points out: "Yes let's blame the batsmen who top scored and got out 2 hours ago, yes of course its his fault that Bell cant bat, AB took a stunning catch and the pitch and the new ball have blown away our tail." And Gary Naylor agrees:""Has there ever been, in any sport, a top-class player whose sheer dimwittedness was more frustrating than KP's??" Has there ever been, in any sport, a top-class player whose delivers more for his team, yet gets more criticism than KP??" Morkel bowls two no-balls in the over and he really is a bit loose and shabby at times. Five overs left.

92nd over: England 218-8 (Collingwood 18, Swann 2) De Wet keeps on steaming in to Collingwood, staying tight on off stump and making Collingwood play. He just keeps on shuffling forward and blocking stoutly, until he gets a leg-stump half volley and hits it for four, his first runs in nearly an hour. De Wet maybe a little weary and getting towards the end of his spell now. Thomas Hopkins has a sobering thought: "Whatever happens from here, can we all agree that anyone who ever called for Collingwood to be dropped was a moron?". And Mike Down asks: "Do we call him KP because he has got a peanut sized brain? I agree with John Cox, if we lose this test it won't be down to Bell but KPs stupidity." Harsh words, but they will be widely repeated tomorrow whatever happens from here. Four overs left.

便门! Swann lbw b Morkel 2 (England 218-9) Morkel finally bowls on the stumps and nips one back in to Swann that would have hit leg stump but raps him on the knee roll instead. Onions is the new man. England are almost out on their feet here.

93rd over: England 218-9 (Collingwood 18, Onions 0) Morkel ends his over be sending a wide wild one down the leg side and Onions watches it go. Morkel has been a bonus for England here, taking the pressure off and even letting the batsmen leave the ball now and then, but he does bowl proper wicket-taking deliveries. As Gary Naylor notes: "Where's Marcus North when you need him?" Three overs left.

94th over: England 222-9 (Collingwood 22, Onions 0) De Wet manfully still running in and bowling straight and fats, and Collingwood defending brilliantly. This is dramatic Test cricket at the end of five days. You've got to love it - no other sport can give you this, not quite so unexpectedly, and at the end of such a slow-burner. Last ball of the over and Collingwood has to get a single and instead he whips it through square leg for four. so Onions is on strike to Morkel. 噢亲爱的。 That was instinctive I guess. But trouble here for England. Two overs left.

95th over: England 228-9 (Collingwood 26, Onions 1) Onions backs away from his first ball (a no ball) and jabs it down and that was real tail end stuff. He gets in line to the second and blocks, then leaves the third. Four to go. Another edgy leave as Morkel fails to threaten the stumps and Duminy goes to have a word. Bowl the yorker, man, surely. Morkel does exactly that but Onions blocks it and they take a single with two balls to go. He's got to take every delivery he can from here. Can he sneak another single and take the last over? Oh dear, he shuffles down the pitch and ends up clipping it for four through square leg again. That was unlucky. One ball left. And Collingwood can only jab it down: Onions has six balls to save the game, De Wet six to win it. One over left.

Great theatre: it's Ntini coming on to bowl in his 100th Test.

96.1 overs: England 228-9 (Collingwood 26, Onions 1) Onions defends stoutly.

96.2 overs: England 228-9 (Collingwood 26, Onions 1) Onions leaves a wide-ish short one.

96.3 overs: England 228-9 (Collingwood 26, Onions 1) Onions jabs one down again. No straight balls yet.

96.4 overs: England 228-9 (Collingwood 26, Onions 1) A straight one, the shooter, that Onions blocks. Well played!

96.5 overs: England 228-9 (Collingwood 26, Onions 1) On off stump and Onions blocks again. All the fielders in close here.

97th over: England 228-9 (Collingwood 26, Onions 1) Match drawn. Onions saves England, blocking the final ball and punching the air to celebrate a crazy, rollercoaster rearguard. Cardiff all over again for England.

Collingwood finished with 26 not out off 99 balls as England glung on and he really has saved them today. England will feel they did well to survive the day, but it was pointlessly close. Great effort from South Africa, in particular from De Wet. That's all from me for now , thanks for all your emails and good bye.
