Hendricks, Rabada deny Lions sweep

Reeza Hendricks' century and four wickets for Kagiso Rabada helped South Africa A to a comfortable win in their final one-day match against England Lions

South Africa A 287 for 6 (Hendricks 107, Elgar 66, Brooks 3-55) beat England Lions 209 (Bairstow 64, Patel 55, Rabada 4-51) by 78 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball details
Reeza Hendricks' century and four wickets for Kagiso Rabada helped South Africa A to a comfortable win in their final one-day match against England Lions. Jonny Bairstow and Samit Patel managed half-centuries for the Lions but could not prevent defeat for the first time on tour.
Already 3-0 down in the series, South Africa A managed to stave off a clean sweep by the tourists with victory in the final match of the series. Hendricks and captain Dean Elgar put on an opening stand of 149 inside 29 overs and although South Africa A were prevented from reaching 300, with Jack Brooks taking 3 for 55, their total proved more than challenging enough.
The Lions were reduced to 92 for 4 in reply, with Rabada removing James Vince and the dangerous Ben Stokes. Bairstow and Patel kept them up with the rate but Elgar brought himself on to remove Bairstow and the last five wickets fell for 23 runs.
South Africa A had fallen away in their innings, too, after Hendricks and Elgar had given them a significant platform. Adil Rashid broke their partnership, removing Elgar for 66, before a half-century stand between Hendricks and Theunis de Bruyn. Hendricks' hundred came off 123 balls but he was the third wicket to fall, bowled by Tim Bresnan, as the Lions reined the innings in. But Chris Morris cracked 35 off 20 to regain the momentum and set up victory at the last.
