England's next action is against South Africa A on Tuesday before the one-day series starts back at the Wanderers on Friday. It should be a cracking, and high-scoring, series. In the meantime, don't forget that India and Sri Lanka start a Test series tomorrow (remember cricket in whites with slips and close-catchers?) so tune into Cricinfo for the usual extensive coverage. I'll be back on Friday for the opening ODI, but from now from Andrew McGlashan it's goodbye.

Although Twenty20 results don't always mean much heading into the longer formats, England have some thinking to do about their bowling. They need Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann back fit, while Graham Onions must be considered for the ODIs. The batting actually looks quite good, especially with Pietersen back, Trott in form and Morgan firing. Andrew Strauss will return for the 50-over stuff so, despite being captain today, Cook could well be on the sidelines. Loots Bosman isn't in South Africa's one-day squad at the moment, although that might change after his two T20 innings.

So the series ends level as South Africa win by a huge 84 runs...the match was virtually over after Graeme Smith and Loots Bosman added 170 in 13 overs. England scored less in their whole 20 overs.
