South Africa

287/10(43.1 Overs)

For South Africa, Ngidi began brilliantly with three in no time but that was it! The others failed to take wickets to capitalize on the start Lungi Ngidi gave them and after that they just could not stem the run-flow. Most of the bowlers were taken to the cleaners and South Africa will not be happy with how things stand at the moment.

Now the target is a big one but we saw South Africa chase something similar in the last game. Can they do it again or will the England bowlers have their say this time? Join us for the chase in a bit.

The two began slowly, really slowly actually, England were going for under 4 per over for the first 15 overs or so but such was the nature of the wicket, it was doing a bit but the two weathered the storm and once they got their eye in, they really took the bowlers to the cleaners. They added over 200 and took the game away from England. At one time, 350 looked possible but England lost a few wickets towards the end which did not let them get to that mark.

What a recovery that is! Let me remind you, England were 3 down for below 20 and they have ended with a score more than their last game. To add to that, they have managed to score over 200 runs in the last 20 overs. Absolutly unreal and they have just the two men to thank for this, Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan! Outstanding tons from them has taken England to a score which we feel is well above par.

South Africa (Playing XI) - Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma (C), Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen (WK), Marco Jansen, Wayne Parnell, Sisanda Magala, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi.

Toss - South Africa have won the toss and will bowl first!

For South Africa, Ngidi began brilliantly with three in no time but that was it! The others failed to take wickets to capitalize on the start Lungi Ngidi gave them and after that they just could not stem the run-flow. Most of the bowlers were taken to the cleaners and South Africa will not be happy with how things stand at the moment.

Now the target is a big one but we saw South Africa chase something similar in the last game. Can they do it again or will the England bowlers have their say this time? Join us for the chase in a bit.

The two began slowly, really slowly actually, England were going for under 4 per over for the first 15 overs or so but such was the nature of the wicket, it was doing a bit but the two weathered the storm and once they got their eye in, they really took the bowlers to the cleaners. They added over 200 and took the game away from England. At one time, 350 looked possible but England lost a few wickets towards the end which did not let them get to that mark.

What a recovery that is! Let me remind you, England were 3 down for below 20 and they have ended with a score more than their last game. To add to that, they have managed to score over 200 runs in the last 20 overs. Absolutly unreal and they have just the two men to thank for this, Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan! Outstanding tons from them has taken England to a score which we feel is well above par.
