South Africa in England T20I Series - 1st T20I

England v South Africa

South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

3.4

Morkel to Kieswetter, OUT, dropped into the leg side, Hales came a long way down and was sent back, Kallis throws down the stumps and is run out, total waste for England but a good scalp for South Africa and sharp work, excellent work from Kallis, never a run there

AD Hales run out 11 (15m 6b 2x4 0x6) SR: 183.33

England 27/1   C Kieswetter 16* (16b 2x4 1x6)   JA Morkel 0.4-0-3-0

6.1

Botha to Kieswetter, OUT, and the first ball spins into the front pad and is given out lbw. Nice delivery first up, jags back and strikes Kieswetter in line with off stump, pretty plumb in front, Kieswetter played across it but got done by the turn

C Kieswetter lbw b Botha 25 (28m 24b 3x4 1x6) SR: 104.16

England 40/2   RS Bopara 4* (7b)   J Botha 0.1-0-0-1

7.4

Steyn to Bopara, OUT, can you believe it, Bopara gone again caught at slip and it is exactly the same dismissal as Bopara's other dismissals against South Africa, pushing tentatively forward to a fullish ball just outside off without moving his feet and getting an edge behind the wicket

RS Bopara c Botha b Steyn 6 (19m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

England 50/3   EJG Morgan 7* (5b 1x4)   DW Steyn 1.4-0-3-1

10.2

Botha to Morgan, OUT, bowled him, Morgan chops on! He tried to manufacture another busy shot, against the turn and it was a bit too close, the ball taking a chunk of bat and cannoning on to the wicket

EJG Morgan b Botha 10 (17m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

England 66/4   JM Bairstow 10* (10b 1x4)   J Botha 2.2-0-16-2

12.3

Peterson to Buttler, OUT, bowled him, another one gone! Buttler beaten by the flight and turn, well down the wicket and all at sea, he pushed tamely as the ball span by and clattered into middle and off

JC Buttler b Peterson 6 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

England 76/5   JM Bairstow 14* (14b 1x4)   RJ Peterson 1.3-0-11-1

13.4

Morkel to Bairstow, OUT, gone, tries to go big but holes out to long-on! England are making a right horlicks of this, Bairstow trying to up the pace and punching a lofted drive limply to the man stationed out near the boundary

JM Bairstow c Botha b Morkel 15 (24m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.23

England 80/6   SR Patel 3* (4b)   JA Morkel 2.4-0-11-1

15.3

Peterson to Patel, OUT, hits out and goes, caught in the deep by the diving Kallis. It was boom or bust and Patel was not going to be bailed out, trying to hoick over long-off, didn't get enough bat on it and Kallis ran in to dive full length, sliding along the turf and getting safely under a magnificent catch

SR Patel c Kallis b Peterson 4 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

England 85/7   SCJ Broad 4* (8b)   RJ Peterson 2.3-0-14-2
