W
OUT! Run Out. Lungi Ngidi to Adil Rashid. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to short mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Steyn, by de Kock. England lose it at the death, poor game management from the captain, Morgan who had this game in his hands going into the last ball of the second last over. England had this game, some decent bowling at the death but you have to say that England should've been able to put away the slower ball more effectively. South Africa take a 1-0 lead going into the second T20I, they have won the opening game of each series, but failed to maintain their leads in all of the series' so far.
19.5
W
OUT! Bowled. Lungi Ngidi to Moeen Ali. Slower ball yorker, off stump down the track driving, missed to. Two wickets this over, England have collapsed again and South Africa need to stop a two to win this one. Ali clean bowled.

W
OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Tom Curran. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Miller. Another one bites the dust, the game management from England has been shocking, Curran gets a two from the first ball then goes big when they need a run a ball. The on-side was open for one, if not two.

OUT! Caught. Beuran Hendricks to Eoin Morgan. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Bavuma. Wicket! Morgan holes out to Bavuma and England are in a little spot of bother, Morgan departs for a brilliant 52, but did he need to do that, get on strike, then they only need 6 from the last over with a set batter on strike.
18.5

SIX! Beuran Hendricks to Eoin Morgan. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep cover for 6 runs. Another half-volley, and another boundary, much better from England here, Morgan looking to win the game by himself.

Stokes departs for 4, he is caught by Miller, another slower ball from Ngidi, Ngidi hasn't bowled one faster ball this over, why can't England hit the slower ball? They should be expecting the slower ball by now.

Denly's brief innings comes to an end after he holes out to van der Dussen in the deep. The question has to be asked of the selection of Denly, with Malan doing so well against New Zealand, why should he be dropped?

OUT! Run Out. Chris Jordan to Andile Phehlukwayo. Length ball, middle stump backing away driving, to silly mid on, fielded by Jordan. Last ball and Phehlukwayo is run out, England manage to limit South Africa to 177 for 8, just eight runs coming off the last 12 balls which is incredible from Wood and Jordan. England will fancy their chances here, they have big hitter throughout the order and will be able to learn from South Africa's mistakes.

OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Temba Bavuma. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short fine leg, by Ali. Bavuma out! That drop doesn't cost England too many runs, Ali takes his chance after Bavuma goes for another sweep, this time he over-reaches for the ball and holes out to short fine leg. Great innings from him, he has taken it to the England bowlers and put crucial runs on the board.

Start of South Africa Innings. Good afternoon and welcome to the first T20I of the series between South Africa and England at East London. After the ODI series finished on a 1-1 draw after England got back to winning ways by beating the hosts in the last match of the series. We now move to East London for the some more action, England have got Buttler and Stokes back after they were rested for the ODI series, Wood is also back with the squad after his successful test series. As for South Africa, the big news with their squad is the return of Dale Steyn, there was a possibility of AB returning to the side after he expressed interest in returning for the T20 World Cup, but he has not been selected for the series. The start of the T20I series is nearly upon us, will England be able to beat the hosts in their backyard?

England lose it at the death, poor game management from the captain, Morgan who had this game in his hands going into the last ball of the second last over. England had this game, some decent bowling at the death but you have to say that England should've been able to put away the slower ball more effectively.
