NatWest Series [South Africa in England] - 5th ODI

England v South Africa

South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 93 balls remaining)

4.2

Steyn to Bopara, no run, length, in the channel outside off, left alone

4.3

Steyn to Bopara, OUT, and now he's gone, second ball edged behind! England are immediately two down and you have to wonder about the logic of promoting Bopara on his current form. He simply pushed indeterminately at a ball he could have left and feathered through to de Villiers, a type of dismissal we've seen a couple of times previously in the series

RS Bopara c †de Villiers b Steyn 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 24/2   RS Bopara 0 (2b)
