England captain Joss Butler told BBC Sport: “It was really fantastic. I thought the way the players got up and took charge during that half – Malan, Bristow and Moeen Ali – was all fantastic. It was great to watch.
“I thought we were smart. We took the pressure when we needed it and put it back when we felt there was an opportunity for them too. We knew we had a lot of strength, but we didn’t try to force it.”
“We were really excited to play this kind of game. We scored over 200 goals against India at Trent Bridge and it was really great here too.”
“We knew it was going to be a tough game. Small pitch and great little gate. It was important to get the wicket back early and I thought match 18 from Chris Jordan was great and it changed the momentum of the game.”
The South African War Department was unable to respond as desired. Riza Hendricks appeared in the first part of the role of Proteus half a century later. Tristan Stubbs stunned the England fans for a while, throwing 72 balls off 28, but keeping wickets, South Africa posted 193 innings for 8 off 20 hits
The ODI series between the two teams ended in a draw as England and South Africa led play before the final game of the series was washed out by rain and if England can win the second T20I against South Africa, it will confirm the T20I series, followed by a three-match Test between the two teams. There will be a series.
