I hope this product advertising by commentators never creeps into commentary at Sky.

Not sure what we're doing at the end here, bowling round the wicket, full and wide against Linde and we have 4 men out on the boundary on the leg side. FFS just pack the off side if you're going to do that.

Playing only one spinner is almost always a mistake, regardless of the fact that Moeen is almost certainly a better batsman than whoever he would be replacing.

As much as I love Mo considering the respective form of our bowlers with the bat in the IPL I'm really not sure that's the case.

Bizarre that Stokes has only played 28 T20is.

Lifeline for Roy but he's not looking comfortable out there.

In the run up to the 50 over World Cup, they tended to rest him from t20s and rightly so. Tough to regularly play 3 formats.

Very sluggish and now out. Horrible really.

He can put his feet up and get more comfortable now.

Roy put out of his misery. He looks horrendously out of touch.

Just looking at him it seems a bit deeper than just his form, you can sometimes tell when a batsman is struggling mentally. They were saying he struggled in the lockdown bubble and he opted out of the IPL.

Paarl looks a lovely place to play cricket.

Nortje making an absolute mockery of the fact he was left out the other day. Surely he’s the second pick in all formats (after Rabada).

Why on Earth did Tom Curran get the last over? Defiantly a captains favourite.

He’s been a good death bowler in the past. Captain wants to keep faith, Curran having had slightly better day than on Friday (wicket and a catch).

PS. Do you mean “defiantly” or “definitely”? Both would apply.

They talked about him coming back in before start of play but I’d been under the impression he’d been unwell.

England are making a bit of a meal of this.

Ropey old pitch this one but England need to show their metal on surfaces such as these.

Will be tough now, though Shamsi only has one left, which is in England's favour.

SA just ahead.

Probably Morgan having a look at how he would do under the pressure. This is all about building for the World Cup, I'd say currently this is the first choice team with Tom Curran the most likely to miss out if they want another spinner in the team. Better to have a look at how Currant handles stuff like bowling the last over now, also looking at how he responds to having a bad game the other day.

These two are going to have to up the tempo now.

The pitch isn't doing them any favours but they need to hit out or get out.
