Lunch – Day 3 England lead by 189 runs with 8 wickets remaining, they scored 53 runs with two wickets down, AN Cook scored 10 runs off 19 balls and out when 6.1 driven and gone! Cook lines up the drive, away from his body, finds a thick edge and de Bruyn in the gully cleans up! Reward for Morkel, who has been brilliant all Test, and just a hint of an opening for South Africa 16/1. T Westley contributed just nine and dismissed when it was 10.6 edged to gully! Is this the innings for Morkel? Goes full outside off, brings the drive from Westley, he slices across the ball a little and it’s safely taken at waist height 30/2.

Live scorecard and ball-by-ball commentary
James Anderson was denied a maiden five-wicket haul at Old Trafford, but still finished with figures of 4 for 38 in 17 overs, his best in seven Tests on his home ground, as England wrapped up South Africa’s first innings for 226 on the third morning of the fourth Investec Test.
The final wicket was, however, claimed from the James Anderson End, when Stuart Broad, who had resumed midway through his 15th over following last night’s dismissal of Kagiso Rabada, had Duanne Olivier caught on the pull for 4, his spiralling top-edge nestling in Jonny Bairstow’s gloves.
