Thanks for joining us tonight. There weren't as many runs as we might have liked, but the excitement was certainly there in that cliffhanger of a finish. 

Goodnight! 

19 Feb 21:25
The Proteas take a 1-0 lead into Sunday's clash in Johannesburg. 
19 Feb 21:25
Despite Morris saving the Proteas once more, Imran Tahir's 4/21 is surely enough to earn him the man-of-the-match award ...
19 Feb 21:23

Just to recap that final over ... Morris and Abbott needed 15 to win at the start. 

19.1 - Abbott single. 14 needed off 5.

19.2 - Morris FOUR. 10 needed off 4.

19.3 - Morris SIX. 4 needed off 3.

19.4 - Dot ball. 4 needed off 2.

19.5 - Morris two. 2 needed off 1.

19.6 - Morris two. Topley drops ball looking to run Abbott out. 

19 Feb 21:20

What drama ... The Proteas really shouldn't have left it that late. 

A lot to think about moving forward, but a win is a win and Morris is the hero once more.

19 Feb 21:19
It looked like Abbott was gone for all money and that we were headed for a Super Over, but Reece Topley dropped the ball as he was trying to whip off the bails and Abbott got home! 
19 Feb 21:18
Morris needed 2 to win off the last ball! He hit it to long-off and Kyle Abbott immediately turned back for the second ...
19 Feb 21:17
PROTEAS WIN! 
19 Feb 21:15
19.4 - Dot! 3 off 3 needed ...
19 Feb 21:14
19.3 SIX! Chris Klusener clears long-on! 4 off 3 needed now ...
19 Feb 21:13
19.2 - FOUR! Morris splits mid-off and sweeper. 10 off 4 needed. 
19 Feb 21:12
19.1 - Abbot single. Morris on strike. 14 off 5 needed. 
19 Feb 21:11
England now surely favourites ... How did that happen? 
19 Feb 21:10
Topley will bowl ...
19 Feb 21:10
SA need 15 off the last over and Abbott is on strike ... 
19 Feb 21:09

WICKET! Wiese is gone! Bowled by Jordan. Chopped on! Morris is going to have to be the hero here for SA. 

16 off 7 needed.

19 Feb 21:07

Wiese hooks and gets two to fine-leg.

SA need 16 off 8 ...

19 Feb 21:07
Single! 18 off 9 now. Wiese on strike ...
19 Feb 21:06

DROPPED! Morris is given a lifeline as Topley misjudges one at third man! He really should have taken that but in the end got nowhere near it. 

19 off 10 ...

19 Feb 21:05

WICKET! Miller is gone! He's picked out Root at long-on and SA are in real trouble now ...

21 off 11 needed ...

Here comes Chris Morris.

19 Feb 21:03
Jordan to bowl, Miller to face ...
19 Feb 21:03
SA 114/5 (18) and need 21 from 12 ...
19 Feb 21:03
FOUR! Miller now gets Ali through the covers and splits sweeper and long-off. 
19 Feb 21:02
SIX! Miller manufactures some room for himself and somewhat awkwardly gets enough on that to get it over long-off. 26 off 14 needed. 
19 Feb 21:00

WICKET! Rossouw goes. He's top edged a sweep off Ali to short fine-leg. Rossouw made 18 off 18. 

SA need 32 off 17 as David Wiese comes in. 

19 Feb 20:58

Good bowling from Jordan, good fielding from England. 

SA now need 32 from 18.

If they don't get over the line here it will be criminal ...

19 Feb 20:55
Sorry, Du Plessis made 25 ... not 35. 
19 Feb 20:54
Proteas need 37 from 24 ...
19 Feb 20:54

WICKET! Du Plessis goes for 35 off 30. He's looked to get that one over the ropes but succeeded in picking out Stokes, who ran around from long-on. 

SA 98/4 and it's tense now. 

David Miller in. 

19 Feb 20:50

England were 94/6 after 15. 

SA are 91/3.

19 Feb 20:48
SIX! That's more like it. Rossouw gets hold of Rashid and hits him over long-on. 
19 Feb 20:47
So the match situation now is that SA need 52 to win from 6 overs. It's certainly not been as comfortable as the hosts would have liked. 
19 Feb 20:46
And he goes for just four ...
19 Feb 20:44
Moeen Ali into the attack now ... 
19 Feb 20:40

WICKET! Duminy gone for 23. He's hit Rashid straight down Joe Root's throat at long-on. 

SA 76/3. Rilee Rossouw the new man in.

19 Feb 20:39
61 from 48 needed ...
19 Feb 20:39

CHANCE! The ball is following Willey tonight. This time it's Du Plessis, who mistimes a pull. Willey makes good ground on the square-leg boundary, but he can't get there even with a desperate dive. 

Faf survives. SA 74/2 (12)

19 Feb 20:35
FOUR! That relieves some pressure! It's full and just outside off-stump and Duminy launches Stokes over extra ...
19 Feb 20:34
Crowd attendance tonight is 19 061 ...
19 Feb 20:33

Just four off that Rashid over and SA are 65/2.

They now need 70 from 54. Should be easy enough, but it's getting just a little tense ...

19 Feb 20:30

SA 61/2 after 10 overs. 

At the same stage England were 74/4.

19 Feb 20:28
CHANCE! Duminy lucky again. Goes after a hook and it drops just short of Ali at fine-leg ...
19 Feb 20:26
78 off 65 needed ...
19 Feb 20:26
Stokes continues. Duminy 11*, Du Plessis 11*. 
19 Feb 20:26
SA 57/2 (9) ...
19 Feb 20:24
FOUR! Rashid is into the attack and he drops that short. Duminy puts it away convincingly ...
19 Feb 20:23

DROPPED! JP Duminy runs down the wicket and hits Stokes a mile high over the inner ring. Willey is running towards the ropes with the ball coming from behind him and he launches himself forwards. It would have been a stunning catch, but he can't hold on. 

SA 50/2 (8)

19 Feb 20:17

SA 43/2 (7)

92 to win off 78 balls ...

19 Feb 20:16
FOUR! Top shot from Du Plessis through the covers. 
19 Feb 20:13

SA 35/2 (6)

Just need to be a little careful here ...

 
  • 19.6 - Reece Topley to Chris Morris. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 2 runs, fielded by Root. What drama to finish off the game! Morris hits it down the ground to Root at long off. It should have only been a single, but Topley fumbles it when the throw comes in and they are able to complete the second run and win the game!

    It may have been low scoring, but what a thrilling game of cricket! Tahir was brilliant with the ball, as was Jordan for England. But in the end the Proteas crawled over the line to a three wicket victory. They now lead the series 1-0.

  • 7.5 - Ben Stokes to JP Duminy. Length ball, down leg side down the track Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on for 2 runs, dropped catch by Willey, fielded by Morgan. Awful shot from Duminy. He runs down the pitch and hacks it straight up in the air. Mid on is up in the circle and has to track back to take the catch.
