Eoin Morgan sees South Africa rout as timely lesson for England

Kagiso Rabada picked a four-wicket haul in the game England players celebrating the series victory   Kagiso Rabada

Stokes bowled just two overs before suffering pain in his left knee as the hosts enjoyed a confidence-boosting 72-run win in Leeds just a week out from the Champions Trophy tournament in England and Wales featuring cricket's leading eight ODI nations.

England were more than a little miffed afterwards at a wicket that they felt was more suitable for the first day of a Test match than an ODI.

"But South Africa bowled beautifully".

South Africa made 156-3 in 28.5 overs, built on a 95-run opening stand between Hashim Amla (55) and Quinton de Kock (34).

Jonny Bairstow (51) offered some resistance but England were bowled out for 153 with 18.5 overs remaining.

Morgan focused on the things that England did right in the first two ODIs instead of searching for excuses for failure at Lord's. "There was something there for the bowlers today that all of us could capitalise", said Rabada.

Cricket South Africa has started a process to fill the post and Domingo has not indicated whether he intends to apply to keep his job.

The June 1-18 Champions Trophy is being held in England and Wales and contested by the top eight sides in the one-day global rankings.

So too were paceman Liam Plunkett, as well as off-spinner Moeen Ali.

He was soon stumped on the charge as the slow left-armer found a touch of spin, having hit three half-centuries in his last four ODI innings - spread over 11 matches as England have preferred others when available in their heavyweight middle order.

England still won the three-match series 2-1.

Morgan added: "I'm not anxious".


With the platform constructed, Buttler bent himself upon destruction during the latter stages.

Wood defended a target of seven off six balls in the last over.

Rabada was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets, while Parnell and Maharaj snapped up three wickets apiece.

"We want to perform, get people in to watch the game and have a fun day".

He unfurled a range of destructive shots, sending Andile Phehlukwayo and Chris Morris for three massive sixes.

After a top-edge off Rabada flew high between keeper and slip, Stokes followed up with a dismissive thump back down the ground and a single to bring up his half-century from 48 balls.

"I'd like to think it doesn't", he said.

With overhead conditions providing just a touch of assistance for the seamers early on, England had struggled through the initial Powerplay.

England take on South Africa in the third and final ODI at Lord's before they begin their Champions Trophy against Bangladesh at The Oval later this week. It could have been even better, had Pretorius clung on to a tough opportunity off Morgan.

The victory puts England in place to complete a bilateral whitewash over South Africa for the first time in 26 years.

England were faltering at 80 for three when Stokes came into bat.
