England have done it! What a final over from Wood. It's back of a length, Morris heaves across the line and it rebounds off his back leg to the off side
England win by two runs and go 2-0 up in the series. What a finish! South Africa will wonder how they did get over the line after Miller and Morris did so well. But England - Ball and Wood - did not concede more than a single off the last 10 balls of the innings. There are bigger fish to fry over the next few weeks, but South Africa have head in hands and England are lapping up the applause from the crowd.
John: "Hey Andrew,just wondering how many comments you've got with 'C' word in them in the last 5 minutes" Oh, a few.
Let's just recap: England made 330, based around Ben Stokes' century and Jos Buttler finished things off. As at Headingley, South Africa were well placed in the chase but England managed to get AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock close together. While Morris and Miller cut loose, it appeared the wicket of Farhaan Behardien might have done more harm than good for England.
Imran: "Hey Andrew, and how many comments you've about Behardien's selection or his inning in them in the last 5 minutes ??" Almost as many as the 'c' word!
JT: "Bravo, Woody. Ice cool."
I'll bring you the presentation in a moment...AB de Villiers "I thought the boys played so well at the end, England got their plans well at the end. Unfortunate we didn't get across the line, but proud of the effort. We lost myself and Quinny together so it could have been easier, but we batted very deep. We were a little careless [in the field] and there was a bit of faulty thinking. There were probably four or five overs that went too big and cost us the game. I can't be unhappy, we fought right to end and probably had it in the back for most of that last half hour."
Eoin Morgan "Those are the sorts of games you really want to win. You learn a lot more. The game got away from us quite a lot. Woody was awesome. The tournament is bound to be pretty tight so this sort of prep is ideal. We are always trying to improve, Wood and Ball were using different skills than they usually would. The conditions we batted under this morning it was pretty difficult to get going."
Man of the Match is Ben Stokes "It just shows what a bit of pace on the ball can do. Rabada and Morris show it as well, hard to strike 90mph cleanly. You want to be in those situations. Woody, the nerve he showed, to defend seven was an amazing effort. A massive confidence booster. The bowling is getting effected by the knee, got a few more scans coming up, batting and fielding is fine. It's nice to hit the ball well, to have form behind you. Hopefully we can continue this form."
Phew! Well, that just about wraps things up for today. A fantastic all-round game of cricket. Thanks for joining us and we'll be back for the final ODI at Lord's on Monday - we'll also have coverage of India's warm-up match against New Zealand tomorrow. For now, from Andrew Miller and Andrew McGlashan it's goodbye.
Goodness me. South Africa need four off the last ball to win. What an effort from Wood
dot ball! And an appeal for a gloved pull. Was a short ball, very well directed, not called wide. Oh, the drama. Did it clip the arm?
Wood has done very well here...4 off 2 needed. Still one blow for Morris
that's out of the screws, but only a single as the pull shot races to deep square...nearly took the square leg umpire
5 off 3
dot ball! Short of a length, follows the batsman as he moves outside leg, beats the top edge
Still in hand for South Africa
short again, pulled to long leg...was struck sweetly but almost straight at the fielder
short, down the leg side, pulled to long leg...fielder quickly on it, so just the single
So, 7 off 6 needed. Any late drama?
full, swings across the line, an appeal for lbw as he scuttles through to the keeper...inside edge
fuller, swings across the line, takes the back leg and deflects towards backward point and, in fact, England are reviewing for the lbw. High on the back leg, heading leg side. Going over leg stump
another short ball, Morris takes his eyes of it but manages to pull to long leg
South Africa have done the hardwork now. Viv: "Taking the wicket of Fudge is indeed hurting England now. "
keeps it short, pulled to deep midwicket
goes shorter and that's rifled square through the off side with thunderous power...magnificent striking from Miller
that's into the crowd as well, a clean strike through a full delivery which goes straight down the ground and South Africa motoring
that's huge! Swings it back South Africa's way. Poor ball, went length, Morris just stood there and heaved it over wide long-on. Wood knows he got that one wrong
charges down the pitch, Wood goes short (and fast) again, Morris can't make contact as he swings across the line
good comeback by Wood, a yorker outside off stump and Morris drives over the top of it
there's a boundary, again it's short from Wood and it flies off the top edge as Morris hooks...did him for pace, really, but South Africa won't care
he's crunched that, a short ball, but straight to Stokes at deep midwicket
round the wicket, Miller moving miles outside leg, follows him and it takes the thigh pad behind square...Miller gambles on the second. Better throw from Buttler would have been tight
Back to Mark Wood
a short ball, and a dot ball, angled over leg side, Morris can't make contact with his pull
another low full toss, flicked over the leg side, between deep square and deep midwicket
