Commentary
  • 19.6 - FOUR! Chris Jordan to Morne Morkel. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs.

    Morkel slaps it over mid off but it is not enough for the victory. England take it but 19 runs and also win the series 2-1. It has been a very good game with the young guys standing up and grabbing the initiative. Especially Dawid Malan who hit his maiden fifty and Tom Curran who took a couple while Mason Crane also got his first wicket in international cricket. AB gave his side a bit of belief with a cameo but there wasn't much else until the end of the innings when Mosehle and Phehlukwayo swung the bat. Both teams will be happy with how the series has gone with new faces being brought in but it is now onto the Test series. See you then.

  • 14.1 - SIX! David Willey to Mangaliso Mosehle. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs. He was waiting for anything on his pads and that is exactly what Willey offered. Going with the wind and all the way for six.

  • 13.6 - Chris Jordan to Andile Phehlukwayo. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot cutting, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Billings.

  • 13.6 - Wide Chris Jordan to Andile Phehlukwayo. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Buttler.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Chris Jordan to Farhaan Behardien. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Billings.

Behardian is the latest to fall attempting to drag the ball from outside off stump out to the legside.

  • 13.3 - Chris Jordan to Mangaliso Mosehle. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Billings.

  • 13.2 - Chris Jordan to Farhaan Behardien. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Curran.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Chris Jordan to David Miller. Back of a length, off stump on the front foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Another short ball which does the trick.

  • 11.2 - Chris Jordan to David Miller. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, well timed to fine leg for 2 runs, run save by Crane.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Mason Crane to AB de Villiers. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air under control to deep square leg, by Hales.

  • 10.5 - Mason Crane to David Miller. Googly length ball, down leg side on the back foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Curran.

  • 10.4 - Mason Crane to AB de Villiers. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Livingstone.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to JJ Smuts. Bouncer, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Malan. Quick and short ball which follows Smuts.

  • 8.4 - FOUR! Mason Crane to AB de Villiers. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. A little bit of extra width which enables AB to open his shoulders and smash the ball over cover.

  • 5.5 - FOUR! Liam Plunkett to JJ Smuts. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. Backing away from his stumps again and creamed over cover.

  • 5.4 - SIX! Liam Plunkett to JJ Smuts. Off cutter half volley, to leg backing away Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. He has definitely hit this one. Nearly out of the ground.

  • 5.3 - APPEAL! Liam Plunkett to JJ Smuts. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Buttler, appeal made for Caught. England are confident about this but the umpire is unmoved. Could have been a sound but no reviews in T20s, yet.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Chris Jordan to Chris Morris. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air under control to deep square leg, by Hales. The pinch-hitting tactic hasn't worked for South Africa. Morris doesn't connect fully with the short ball and splices it to Hales, who takes a wonderful catch. He timed the jump and knew where the rope was at all times.

  • 4.1 - Chris Jordan to JJ Smuts. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Buttler.

  • 19.6 - Dane Paterson to Tom Curran. Full toss, outside off stump moves in front driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Hendricks.

    Terrific final over from Paterson restricts England to 181-8 after they were looking like scoring 200 when Dawid Malan was striking the ball beautifully. He was the stand out batsmen and to perform like that on debut was superb. For South Africa they will be thrilled with their death bowling and the momentum is definitely with them going into the next innings.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Dane Paterson to David Willey. Yorker, to leg backing away Steer, missed. Paterson is on another hat-trick. He has got his yorker in when needed and Willey cannot get any bat on it.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Dane Paterson to Jos Buttler. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover, by Smuts. Straight up from Buttler and Smuts steadies himself under the ball. A cameo from the England captain as he finishes with 31 from 22.
