Bowling change for South Africa, Chris Morris runs in.
 
  • 19.4 - Kyle Abbott to Moeen Ali. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, in the air under control to long off for 1 run, fielded by Steyn. Moeen chips it down the ground for a single, England win by two wickets. Quite unbelievable stuff from England as they successfully chase down the highest total ever in T20's. Roy and Hales set the tone first up, every ball needed to go and it did. The dew didn't help the South Africans towards the back end but the innings of Joe Root was phenomenal. 83 runs from 44 balls under that much pressure and to do it without offering a chance was remarkable. He is, unsurprisingly, man of the match.

    England now sit third in the table and register their first victory.

  • 19.3 - Kyle Abbott to Moeen Ali. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by du Plessis.

  • wicket: OUT! Run Out. Kyle Abbott to Moeen Ali. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to cover, fielded by Miller, by de Villiers. Two wickets in two balls. Moeen punches to mid off and the two are unsure where to go or not. Miller gathers and Willey is out of his ground.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kyle Abbott to Chris Jordan. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Duminy. It may not matter really but that's a superb catch from Duminy. Jordan fetches it a long way from off stump and pulls to the fielder running backwards.

  • 18.6 - Kagiso Rabada to Chris Jordan. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Miller.

  • 18.5 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Chris Jordan. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Misses the yorker by a big margin, Jordan hammers it to deep cover and England need two to win.

  • 18.4 - Kagiso Rabada to Moeen Ali. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Duminy.

  • 18.3 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Moeen Ali. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Joe Root. In-swinging full toss, middle stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Miller. Root is caught on the boundary. Had that gone all the way it would surely have been the game for England. It's a high full toss, not no ball height, and Root doesn't quite get the contact and Miller does well to take it on the boundary edge.

    There aren't enough words to describe that innings. The temperament, the skill, the innovation.

  • 18.1 - Kagiso Rabada to Joe Root. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Abbott.

  • 17.6 - Chris Morris to Moeen Ali. Half volley, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad past third man for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Abbott.

  • 17.5 - Chris Morris to Moeen Ali. Yorker, wide outside off stump on the front foot pushing, bottom edge to backward point for no runs, fielded by Amla.

  • 17.4 - Chris Morris to Joe Root. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Amla.

  • 17.3 - FOUR! Chris Morris to Joe Root. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs.

  • 17.2 - FOUR! Chris Morris to Joe Root. Length ball, wide outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. That ball should never, ever have gone to third man. He opens his hands at the point of contact to deflect it over the off side, sublime batting.

  • 17.1 - FOUR! Chris Morris to Joe Root. Length ball, down leg side backing away glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs.

  • 16.6 - Kyle Abbott to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging yorker, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to point for no runs, fielded by Morris.

  • 16.5 - Kyle Abbott to Joe Root. Full toss, wide outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 16.4 - Kyle Abbott to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging yorker, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Morris.

  • 16.2 - SIX! Kyle Abbott to Joe Root. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Root holds the pose beautifully. Straight on off stump and Root just chips right over long on, that's the best of them all.

  • 16.1 - FOUR! Kyle Abbott to Joe Root. In-swinging half volley, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs.

  • 15.6 - Imran Tahir to Joe Root. Leg spinner full toss, to leg on the front foot sweeping, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Amla.

  • 15.5 - Imran Tahir to Moeen Ali. Googly half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Duminy.

  • wicket: OUT! Stumped. Imran Tahir to Jos Buttler. Googly length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, missed to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. The wrong one from Tahir. Buttler runs right by it, to the outside of the ball and misses his connection. De Kock looks as though he completes the stumping but he goes chasing after the ball as if to signify he's fumbled the ball. Replays show he did have the balls in the gloves and Buttler has to go.

  • 15.3 - Imran Tahir to Joe Root. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot Scoop, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to third man for 1 run, fielded by Steyn.

  • 14.3 - SIX! Chris Morris to Joe Root. In-swinging full toss, off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed in the air under control over third man for 6 runs. Short third manup in the circle so what does Root do? Get down low and catch the sweep on the full to go to a 50 off 29 balls.

  • 14.2 - Chris Morris to Jos Buttler. In-swinging yorker, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 14.1 - Chris Morris to Joe Root. In-swinging half volley, off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, run save by Miller.

  • 12.6 - Dale Steyn to Joe Root. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Duminy.

  • 12.5 - FOUR! Dale Steyn to Joe Root. Full toss, down leg side on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Straight from Steyn, too straight as Root glances it off his pads. A quick outfield certainly has helped the run scoring today.

  • 12.4 - Dale Steyn to Joe Root. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by de Villiers.

  • 12.3 - Dale Steyn to Jos Buttler. Off cutter length ball, off stump on the front foot working, mis-timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Miller.

  • 11.6 - SIX! JP Duminy to Jos Buttler. Off break back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. Think the shorter balls must be some kind of ploy from Duminy but they're just sitting up for the batsman to hit. Buttler turns round and with quick hands pulls over deep backward square.

  • 11.5 - JP Duminy to Joe Root. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Miller.

  • 11.4 - JP Duminy to Joe Root. Off break length ball, middle stump on the back foot pulling, well timed to deep square leg for 2 runs, run save by Amla.

  • 10.6 - FOUR! Chris Morris to Jos Buttler. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Bowls short and wide when both point and third man are up in the circle. It's easy for Buttler to spoon it over the aforementioned fielders.

  • 10.4 - Chris Morris to Jos Buttler. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 10.1 - Chris Morris to Jos Buttler. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot working, inside edge to slips for 1 run, fielded by Abbott.

  • 9.6 - SIX! JP Duminy to Joe Root. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Finally Root makes Duminy pay by bowling his short stuff. Pulled well over midwicket.

Straight in and out of the hands of Abbott at short fine leg. It was on the legs, a porr delivery but Hales flicked it straight to the fielder.

  • 0.6 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Jason Roy. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. 21 off the over, best of the lot from Roy as he delivers the perfect on drive.

  • 0.4 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Jason Roy. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Quick hands from Roy enables him to hit squarer and whips it to the boundary in a flash.

  • 19.6 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to David Miller. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. A brute of a shot to finish off the innings. Almost sums the whole 20 overs up really, carnage from the bat and poor from the bowlers.

    Such a dynamic batting effort from the South Africans, three batsmen got half centuries, all getting there in double quick time. England's bowling, especially in the powerplay was horrifcally bad. They did come back into it slightly with the spin of Moeen and Rashid. 229 should be more than enough though.

  • 19.5 - SIX! Chris Jordan to David Miller. Full toss, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. The bottom hand of Miller comes into play as he fetches it off his pads to go over deep square leg.

  • 19.4 - Chris Jordan to JP Duminy. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover for 1 run, dropped catch by Morgan. The captain has to fling himself forwards and shells it onto the turf. Another drop.

  • 19.2 - SIX! Chris Jordan to JP Duminy. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Full toss. A big swing from the left hander. He's added real impetus at the back end of the innings.

  • 18.2 - SIX! Reece Topley to JP Duminy. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep cover for 6 runs. Swing through the line from Duminy. He's a long way from the ball but slots this over cover.

  • 17.4 - SIX! David Willey to David Miller. Full toss, down leg side backing away driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

  • 17.2 - David Willey to David Miller. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Topley.

  • 15.4 - Wide David Willey to JP Duminy. Yorker, down leg side on the front foot glancing, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Buttler.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. David Willey to Faf du Plessis. Full toss, off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Roy. Clever bowling from Willey as he almost entirely cuts off the off side to Faf. All fielders are deep on the leg side and Willey tempts the batsman to hit over there. He does and Roy hardly has to move.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, off stump moves in front slog sweeping, hit pad. Moeen and Rashid have tied the South Africans down, relatively speaking. Amla goes down to sweep, the ball keeps low and he's struck adjacent to off stump. That would have hit the middle of middle.

  • 11.4 - Moeen Ali to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Stokes.

  • 11.3 - Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Topley.

  • 9.6 - SIX! Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to AB de Villiers. Leg spinner length ball, off stump down the track driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by Morgan. Pulls the length back and with AB coming down he doesn't get to the pitch, a bit of spin catches the outside portion of the bat and loops up to the inner ring.

  • 8.5 - Adil Rashid to AB de Villiers. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, inside edge back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Rashid.

  • 8.4 - SIX! Adil Rashid to AB de Villiers. Slider length ball, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. The quicker one from Rashid, out of the front of the hand. De Villiers hangs back and pulls it hard and flat.

  • 8.3 - SIX! Adil Rashid to AB de Villiers. Leg spinner half volley, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. When AB comes running down at you there's little that the bowler can do. Gets it on the half volley and hits handsomely over long on.

  • 8.2 - APPEAL! Adil Rashid to AB de Villiers. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Just sliding down the leg side.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, off stump down the track Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Hales. A wicket. My word. De Kock just gets a bit away from from the pitch and ends up hitting it squarer than intended. Hales takes a relatively comfortable catch.

  • 6.6 - SIX! Adil Rashid to Hashim Amla. Leg spinner full toss, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Amla just catches it before the bounce and biffs it over midwicket. Amla may even beat de Kock (in terms of balls) to 50.

  • 6.5 - Adil Rashid to Quinton de Kock. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Morgan.

  • 6.4 - Adil Rashid to Hashim Amla. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Roy, fielded by Stokes.

  • 6.2 - Adil Rashid to Quinton de Kock. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot working, to short leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid.

  • 6.1 - FOUR! Adil Rashid to Quinton de Kock. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Backlift from off side to leg and he just places this so well. Half century from 21 deliveries and his stature in international Cricket just gets bigger and bigger.

  • 5.6 - Ben Stokes to Quinton de Kock. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Hales.

  • 5.5 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Quinton de Kock. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. Reads the slower ball. Hits through the line and with all the man up during the powerplay it's utter carnage.

  • 5.3 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Hashim Amla. Half volley, wide outside off stump moves in front driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

  • 4.6 - APPEAL! Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Yorker, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to slips for no runs, by Rashid, appeal made for Caught. Amla opens the face and it seems to bump off the turf before going to short third man. The umpires just check to see whether it's a bump ball.

  • 4.5 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Out-swinging half volley, wide outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. Wide and full. Amla is good but it's just so easy to whack over the off side.

  • 4.4 - SIX! Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Slower ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs. Slower delivery on the pads. Amla just waits and scoops it over the top of short fine leg.

  • 4.3 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Slower length ball, wide outside off stump on the back foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs.

  • 4.2 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Half volley, to leg moves in front flick, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Without being too extreme this could be the game already over. Magnificent manipulation of the bowling from these two, the boundary count has gone crazy, where's an abacus when you need one.

  • 4.1 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to Hashim Amla. Half volley, wide outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs.

  • 3.4 - Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover for 1 run, dropped catch by Topley.

  • 3.3 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Quick hands through the ball. Pretty dire bowling so far but a fantastic shot nonetheless.

  • 3.1 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Hashim Amla. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs.

  • 2.6 - SIX! David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control over deep cover for 6 runs. Gives himself some room now on the leg side, a 91 metre six from de Kock and it's absolutely wonderful batting.

  • 2.4 - FOUR! David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs.

  • 2.3 - SIX! David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. The slower one from Willey but de Kock is already down the pitch at the bowler. He gets sufficient elevation to blast his second maximum of the innings.

  • 2.2 - David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump moves in front flick, hit pad to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Willey.

  • 2.1 - David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler.

  • 1.6 - APPEAL! Reece Topley to Hashim Amla. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to point for no runs, fielded by Roy, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • 1.4 - FOUR! Reece Topley to Quinton de Kock. Out-swinging half volley, wide outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

  • 1.1 - SIX! Reece Topley to Quinton de Kock. Out-swinging length ball, wide outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep cover for 6 runs. Width allows de kock to free the arms. Doesn't try to overhit it and just pushes it beautifully over extra cover for six.

  • 0.5 - David Willey to Quinton de Kock. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Roy.
