BATSMEN IN : - Tim Bresnan 17*, Stuart Broad 1*
BATSMEN OUT : - Michael Lumb 18, Alex Hales 38, Moeen Ali 10, Eoin Morgan 14, Jos Buttler 34, Chris Jordan 16, Ravi Bopara 31
19:49 - Great win by South Africa. It's still uncertain who their opponents in the semi-finals will be, but be sure to join us for that game (either next week Thursday or Friday).
It was good to see AB de Villiers hit form when it really mattered, while Imran Tahir (2 for 27 and Wayne Parnell (3 for 31) proved their worth out there tonight.
Parnell, in particular, struck at the right time when England looked dangerous and proved why he should always be picked ahead of Lonwabo Tsotsobe. He can also add a contribution with the bat and is a better fielder.
No-one gave the Proteas a chance in this event and they're still alive! Perhaps it was a good thing as so often in the past they've struggled to handle the burden of being favourites...
19:48 - QUOTES
"Yes we've lost by three, it's a fantastic game, credit to the players for that, we're heartbroken to come out on the wrong end but AB has taken the game away for us. It didn't go to plan in the last three overs but apart from that it was a good game for us. We've had some guys get going this innings but no outstanding score which you need chasing such a big total,” said England captain Stuart Broad.
"It was a great game. The boys did extremely well. It's very tough conditions to field in. I knew from the start we had to be unpredictable and mix things up. But once again the execution of the bowlers was amazing. I've lost a few as captain in T20s and it was important for me to get the guys through and get Faf back pumped for the semi-finals,” said SA skipper Stuart Broad.

18:18 - OVERS 7: England 71/1.
Nine off the first Tahir over. England on course to reach their target...
18:15 - Leg-spinner Imran Tahir now on. His spell will again be key. It will, however, be tough for him to grip the wet ball...

The South Africans have a tendency to struggle when chasing scores, especially in big games.
And no doubt this is a big game, effectively a quarter-final.
15:11 - England definitely the happier team at the start, having won the toss. SA skipper AB de Villiers says he "absolutely would have liked to bowl first".
It's a night game - a first for SA at this event - so the dew will also make it tough for the bowlers to grip.
