Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-38 (Jason Roy, 3.4 ov), 2-52 (Alex Hales, 6.4 ov), 3-53 (Joe Root, 7.1 ov), 4-68 (Ben Stokes, 8.3 ov), 5-81 (Eoin Morgan, 12.2 ov), 6-81 (Moeen Ali, 12.3 ov), 7-108 (Chris Jordan, 16.3 ov), 8-120 (Adil Rashid, 18.1 ov)
16.3 to CJ Jordan, held at the third attempt! Jordan moving to the leg side, Abbott follows him with a slower, shorter delivery and he clubs it to Miller at midwicket who takes it with a juggle (three grabs, actually). 108/7
18.1 to AU Rashid, full outside off, Rashid tries to carve it away over backward point but can't clear the man who takes it above his head. 120/8
3.4 to JJ Roy, picks out the man this time! Back of a length, back-of-the-hand slower ball, Roy going for the pull and it's taken at midwicket. Smart bowling from Rabada. 38/1
6.4 to AD Hales, what a catch! But almost a nasty collision as well! Goodness me...Hales top edges a sweep, the ball goes miles into the air behind square on the leg side. Rabada, running back from short fine leg, and Duminy coming in from deep square both go for the catch. Duminy takes the catch, then Rabada charges into him like a rugby tackle the Springboks would be proud off and, remarkably, Duminy is able to cling onto the catch. Rabada looks a little dazed, but seems okay. 52/2
8.3 to BA Stokes, brilliant bowling! Lovely stuff from Tahir, he beats Stokes with the googly and he's stranded down the pitch. A simple stumping for de Villiers. 68/4
12.2 to EJG Morgan, another for Tahir, he's a heck of a force with the white was outside off, Morgan aiming over the leg side having perhaps picked it as the googly but gets a thick top edge which loops to short third man. 81/5
12.3 to MM Ali, he's on a hat-trick! Moeen has driven a full delivery to cover, where it's superbly held diving to his left by the captain. Somebody catch Tahir, please. He's off again.. 81/6
7.1 to JE Root, and another! Not his best delivery, but it doesn't matter. A length ball outside off, Root tries to drive it square through the off side but picks out point. 53/3

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.75, 93 Mins)135/7
Fall of wickets: 1-31 (AB de Villiers, 4.2 ov), 2-35 (Hashim Amla, 5.3 ov), 3-76 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 12.2 ov), 4-98 (Faf du Plessis, 15.6 ov), 5-103 (Rilee Rossouw, 17.1 ov), 6-114 (David Miller, 18.1 ov), 7-119 (David Wiese, 18.5 ov)
4.2 to AB de Villiers, banged in short, de Villiers top-edges a pull - right into the bread basket of fine leg! Did that beat him for pace? Seemed to skid on as he swiped across the line, big celebration from Jordan, he's sent AB to Z. 31/1
18.1 to DA Miller, pitched up and drilled down the ground, straight to long-on once more! Jordan has another, SA slip-slide again, this game is not giving up... Miller's candle is snuffed out and the pendulum swings. 114/6
18.5 to D Wiese, dragged on! Full and wide as Wiese stepped to leg, swung blindly and chopped the ball into leg stump!. 119/7
5.3 to HM Amla, big leading edge... and Willey dives to snaffle it running in from mid-on! This one stopped on Amla as he tried to play across the line. They are going to check the catch with the third umpire but looks like Willey got both sets of fingers under the ball as he slid forward on his knees. Excellent catch and the game is well and truly afoot!. 35/2
12.2 to JP Duminy, tossed up and flubbed down the ground, straight to long-on! Duminy falls to England's legspinner, couldn't get enough elevation on the shot and Root took it securely at waist height, hurled the ball into the air in celebration. 76/3
15.6 to F du Plessis, darted on the stumps, Faf mows towards wide long-on... towards the safe hands of Stokes, who makes no mistake! The captain picks out a fielder on the boundary this time and the pressure ratchets up another notch. 98/4
17.1 to RR Rossouw, flighted on the stumps, Rossouw sweeps - and loops a top edge to short fine leg! Simple catch and England have another wicket at a key moment!. 103/5
