Match Timings: 17:00 local time (16:00 GMT)

Opener of their team JT Smuts gone with duck, RR Hendricks scored just three runs, DA Miller’s wicket dismissed at nine. AB de Villiers scored 65 runs of 58 balls not out and F Behardien scored 64 runs off 52 deliveries not out. MA Wood took two wickets and DJ Willey took one wicket. Other side England’s opener JJ Roy smashed 28 runs of just 14 balls and out, when his wicket dismissed then it was 4.1 134.2 kph, reverse sweep, and plumb! Well, maybe he thought he was having too much of a good time. Roy dons the hair-shirt, and returns to self-flagellation as he picks the wrong ball for improvisation. Full and straight, and up goes the finger 45/1. AD Hales scored 47 runs off 38 balls, it was JM Bairstow who smashed all South African bowlers all around the park. He scored 60 runs off 35 balls. Now what will happen in today’s match watch in highlights.

The weather has retreated from the white heat of the past few days, but a pleasantly cloudy afternoon is in prospect. Given Taunton’s reputation for limited-overs batting tracks, if England bat first, it’s hard to see them doing anything other than planting the front foot, and aiming for the Quantocks. The first-class pitches do tend to sit up for the spinners, however… For South Africa, it’s hard to see how they can justify the exclusion of Chris Morris and his heavy artillery, but with quota issues to consider, there are always extra factors at play in their selection. Wayne Parnell was heavily criticised for another leaky day at the office – his 23-run over to Roy was effectively game over – but his ability to clear the ropes cannot be discounted for a team who clearly need more oomph in their batting.

It’s hard to know what to expect from this match, and the series finale in Cardiff as well, on account of England’s stated commitment to pack-shuffling. Each of their five debutants has been guaranteed an outing at some stage, which means that, even though Mason Crane’s hugely composed debut should have earned him the right to give his legspin another rip, those short boundaries at the County Ground may prompt a change of tactic – and where better to blood Somerset’s Craig Overton than on his very own ground? One enforced change will be the omission of Mark Wood, who was only ever going to play the first match, as England wrap his race-horse-delicate body up in cotton wool before the Test series. Liam Plunkett is the obvious deck-hitting alternative. Among the batters, Dawid Malan and Liam Livingstone, Lancashire’s star in the making, are both itching to get a hit, though they are hardly alone after the Ageas Bowl mismatch. Surely they won’t dare rest Bairstow just as he becomes an automatic pick? The less volcanic option would be to blood Dawid Malan as an opener and give Hales a day off to top up his tan.
