South Africa fight back to level T20 series with England

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 14:32

England and South Africa will face each other one final time in the Twenty20 worldwide series at Sophia Gardens on Sunday with the victor taking it all.

As it was, they fell three runs short after Roy's dismissal for 67 sparked a fine fightback from the Proteas, which levelled the worldwide T20 Series at 1-1.

Several South African media outlets report that the 42-year-old's contract expires at the end of the England tour and he must re-apply if he wishes to stay in the role.

South Africa beat England by three runs in a thrilling T20 worldwide to level the series on Friday, as Jason Roy became the first batsman in the game's format to be dismissed for obstructing the field.

South Africa are yet to justify the reason to exclude Chris Morris for the opening game of the series and the all-rounder responded with a man of the match performance in the second game, conceding just 18 runs and picking two wickets in his four over quota.

Tom Curran was called up halfway across the world to England's senior squad in the Caribbean as cover for the injured Jake Ball in March after impressing in the Lions" unofficial "Tests' in Sri Lanka.

Roy and Bairstow both excelled in the reply, but the impressive Morris accounted for the latter and South Africa had a lifeline when Roy was given out after he was adjudged to have deliberately put his body in the way of a throw to the non-striker's end.

The series decider will be played on Sunday at Cardiff.


Earlier, there was some clean hitting from JJ Smuts at the top of the South Africa order and skipper De Villiers provided some genuine class in the middle of the innings. "I thought it was a 50-50 call", Morgan said.

Eoin Morgan on Jason Roy's dismissal: "It was a turning point".

And star batsman de Villiers, as he so often does, upped the tempo further, with four sixes in his 20-ball innings.

Morgan had won the toss earlier in the day as he was confident England could complete a series win by chasing down South Africa on a flat surface with small boundaries all around. Yet South Africa are still in there with a chance of pulling off an unlikely series victory. Livingstone was run out and Dawson could only manage four of the eight needed to secure victory from the final two balls.

"They are entitled to appeal for the dismissal".

De Villiers continued to accelerate, getting down on one one knee to Willey and powering a huge six over his shoulder and into the River Tone.

Chris Morris, dropped twice off Jordan the previous over, was finally caught by Jason Roy in the deep. But he ended up scoring 67 runs off 45 balls and later, England lost the game by 3 runs.

That equation became 25 from 14 after Taunton-born Jos Buttler was bowled by Phehlukwayo.
