      Four fours in a row for South Africa since losing that wicket.

      Two for Miller off Jordan, then two for Markram off Topley.

      Willey bowls David Miller, who was looking very dangerous.

      182-4. 4 balls left of the South African innings.

      Willey gets a third wicket with the final ball of the innings with Stubbs hauling out to Livingstone, who takes a good catch on the boundary.

      192 to win!

      28-1

      Another poor score from the skipper. Jos Buttler gone for 14.

      And there goes the other opener, another disappointing knock from Jason Roy. His place is really in doubt now.

      33-2.

      What a f**king catch that was to get rid of Ali. Stubbs at mid-off leaping in the air at full stretch and taking a fantastic catch.

      59-4 after 10 overs. We've hit just two boundaries in the first half of our innings.

      Chasing over 15 an over now. Bairstow and Livingstone are gonna have to go some here.

      Or rather Bairstow and Curran because Livingstone has just been caught cheaply trying to go on the attack.

      Four to end one over, six to start the next.

      Followed swiftly by the sixth wicket. Curran gone.

      Willey going for a big hack onto the leg side, misses it completely and the ball crashes into middle and leg.

      Seven down.

      Hatrick ball coming up.

      Jordan given out LBW but has reviewed.

      No bat but only just clipping the stumps. Umpires call was originally out so we lose our eighth wicket, still needing 95 from 26.

      He's then caught in the deep to end the game and series.

      South Africa absolutely twatted us today with bat and ball.

      Jason Roy needs dropping. Salt in. Buttler back in the middle order Bairstow opening in the power play.

      First night of the second season of The Hundred tonight.

      Watched bits and bobs last year so decided I'd give it a proper go this time round but I just can't get into it. Don't know why but it's just not doing it for me.

      Shocking start to the series against South Africa.

      116-6 in a rain disrupted day, with only Pope making a score of note with his 61 not out.

      Admittedly haven't seen any of the play as I've been in work all day but it doesn't make good reading when four of your top five all fail to make double figures. And a top partnership of 45 from Pope and Stokes before the skipper was dismissed for 20.

      England were a better team , especially in t20 and 50 over cricket before this new 'bazball' rubbish.

      Forget the ashes ... forget worldcups. With this slog every ball out the park come what may mentality they won't be winning many games sadly.

      McCullum won't last long.

      Lost by an innings to what is a very good South African side - especially their bowling. They've got genuine pace in Nortje and one of the world's best in Rabada. On top of a couple of other solid bowlers. They're decent with the bat and South Africa always field well. Whereas we're very much in transition where our best players have probably already had their best days and those coming into the side just aren't quite up to scratch. Even though we won the series against New Zealand, we didn't play that well as a team. It was really down to the individual brilliance of Root and Bairstow.

      I don't want us to go back to the 90s where two bad Tests on the spin saw you out the side only to be brought back in in a couple of weeks time because your replacement has had his two best Tests. But at the same time, I don't want us to become too loyal to people who constantly fail. I know we've struggled to find a decent pair to open the innings ever since Strauss called it a day but now that Cook has gone as well, we look very poor at the top of the order. Crawley just isn't it cutting it, Lees looks solid at times but doesn't make the big scores, Pope has something about him as everyone says but is still very inconsistent especially as a number 3 and then Root comes in and we're already two or three down for not even a hundred runs. And as good as Rooty is, he can't always bail us out of the sh*t.

      The skipper has hit one century in two years, which isn't enough especially if he wants to use himself as a specialised batsmen rather than the all-rounder - though he did bowl a fair bit in this Test to be fair. Foakes may be our best keeper but his lack of runs, will have people questioning whether a great gloveman is worth more than a great batsman who can also keep wicket to an acceptable level. When you've got Bairstow, Buttler and Billings all capable of taking the gloves then Foakes will be under pressure.

      And then we've got Broad coming in at eight, which just makes our tail too long. I know he's got a Test match century to his name and the other three (Potts, Leach, Anderson) can all do a job and hang around a while but we really do miss a bowling all-rounder like Woakes.

      The whole "bazball" style of play is difficult to criticise because when it works like the New Zealand series, it's the greatest thing we've ever seen. But when it falls on it's arse like it did in this Test then it looks very silly. I wouldn't blame the tactics too much for the result though because I just think South Africa are, right now, a better side than we are. As I would of said New Zealand were but they let us off the hook a lot of the time.
