ENG vs SA Match Highlights

South Africa were put to bat first at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St Lucia by the English skipper Jos Buttler after winning the flip of the coin. The Proteas managed to put up 163 runs on the board in the loss of 6 wickets in their quota of 20 overs.

Following the dismissal of the openers, David Miller played a solid 28-ball 43-run knock before getting dismissed.

Despite getting a fantastic start to the innings, South Africa lost its plot midway through the innings with wickets falling continuously. The English bowlers took over control of the innings and didn’t let the Proteas score heavily in spite of a good partnership upfront.

For England, Jofra Archer returned with three wickets, while one wicket each was picked by Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.

England, meanwhile, couldn’t get a good start to their innings with Phil Salt getting dismissed in the powerplay itself. Soon, Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler were also removed by Keshav Maharaj to further put pressure on the Englishmen.

England began losing wickets and they were suddenly four wickets down at a score of 61 runs in 10 overs. However, Harry Brook and Liam Livingstone came to England’s rescue as the two played a 78-run partnership.

As the partnership began to look threatening, seasoned pacer Kagiso Rabada provided a breakthrough, dismissing Livingstone (33 off 17) while Anrich Nortje removed Harry Brook (53 off 37).

Though England managed to streatch the game till the final over, destiny had some other plans as they eventually fell 7 runs short of the required total against South Africa. England could only score 156 runs in the chase of 163 and lost the contest by 7 runs.
