South Africa vs England - Highlights & Stats

South Africa started the first game of the three-match T20 series strongly with 43 from Temba Bavuma and 31 from captain Quinton de Kock at the top of the order.

Lungi Ngidi bowled a brilliant last over as gave away only six runs and took a wicket of Tom Curran to restrict England at 176.

"There were faults in what we did and when you lose a game by one run there are many things you can look at. It has nearly gone back a little bit, and I don't know why", the southpaw added.

England wanted simply seven to win off the final over however Ngidi dismissed Tom Curran and Moeen Ali whereas conceding exclusively 5 runs.

South Africa won the first of three T20Is on Wednesday evening by one run in a tightly contested battle at Buffalo Park in East London, writes ANDRE HUISAMEN.

It was only after Roy toe-edged a Beuran Hendricks slower ball to short fine-leg that South Africa managed to squeeze the visitors.

Adil Rashid was bowling beautifully and though he had Rassie van der Dussen (31) lbw, only for DRS to save the batsman, albeit it for just a few deliveries as Ben Stokes (1-24) bounced him out in the next over. "I didn't panic under pressure, they seemed to be cruising but my job was to get wickets".

England had stemmed the flow of runs and Rashid should have had another wicket when Roy put down a skier after the leg-spinner had deceived Jon-Jon Smuts but the next scalp was Curran's (1-41), Chris Jordan taking a brilliant catch as the ball dropped over his shoulder to remove the risky David Miller (16).

Chris Jordan has insisted that England's fast bowlers do not feel as though they are playing for their places in their series in South Africa. However, Jason Roy's dismissal sparked South Africa's resurgence.

The England skipper is now the seventh-highest run-scorer in T20Is.

Whether there is any lingering feeling from that episode is unclear, but the suspicion that Malan's face does not fit was hardly allayed by the selection instead yesterday of Joe Denly, who averages 10.55 in T20 internationals and has a strike-rate of 97 runs per 100 balls against Malan's average of 57.25 and strike-rate of 156, with five fifties and a hundred from his nine appearances.

"It was an outstanding game of cricket, experiences like this, particularly with the World Cup just around the corner, are so valuable to the team", Morgan said at the post-match presentation.

That came down to 23 from 12 and after two singles from the first two balls, Morgan went four, four, six off Hendricks to take England to within touching distance of victory, bringing up his half-century in the process.

"You've got to be on your A-game", he said.

The fact that the home team, the Proteas, got over the line in scintillating fashion by just one run further sent them into a state of deliriousness.
