3rd ODI, Lord's, London 29 May, 2019

Toss won by South Africa (decided to bowl)

South Africa beat England by 7 wickets

Man of the Match: Kagiso Rabada



Four: And Duminy seals the victory for his side with a boundary. South Africa win the contest by seven wickets but then they have lost the three-match series 1-2.


Four: Short and wide from Willey and De Villiers has no problems in finding the offside fence. 


Back to Back boundaries for De Villiers. First a delightful sweep and then a fierce cut shot against Willey. 


Four: De Villiers steps down the track and smashes it past the bowler for a boundary. 


Boundary: Duminy finds the gap between gully and point. The ball races off the bat to the cushions. South Africa are slowly inching towards victory. 


Four: De Villiers strokes it through the offside and to the ropes. It was juicy half-volley from Jones and the South Africa batter had enough time to lean forward and dispatch it. 


De Villiers is finally off the mark after 13 deliveries. It has been a struggle for him. 


Eoin Morgan has four slips in place now for Duminy. The England captain has decided that it is the best time to attack and try and choke South Africa again.


Four: Duminy stands up tall and places one through covers. Delightful cricketing shot from the explosive left-hander. 


Wicket: Ball picks up Du Plesis. There was no need for such a shot. He tried to chase one outside the off stump but only manages to edge it to the keeper. 


Suddenly the ball is moving around a bit and the England seamers have their tail up. One more wicket here can turn the game around. 


Wicket: Ball cleans De Kock up with a peach of a yorker. The ball tailed back in and crashed into the left-hander's citadel. Double strike for England. 


Wicket: Amla falls trying to pull one to the offside. It was not that short to try it and he edges it onto his stumps.


Four: What a delightful cover drive from Amla again. Stroking it through the offside and picking the gap. 


Fifty: What a fine knock it has been for Amla. He edges one from ball but it runs to the ropes giving the Proteas opener his half-century. 


At the break, the Proteas haven't lost a wicket and have reached 59/0. They are well in course to chase the total down. 


Four: Another one. This time leaning into the drive and caressing it through the covers. Amla looks in fine touch. 


Boundary: A delightful backfoot punch from Amla. The ball races through the covers again to the ropes. What timing from the South African opener.  


Amla is doing what he does best, playing the role of an anchor.


South Africa have got off to a great start. Both De Kock and Amla have looked quite steady out there in the middle. 


Four: De Kock gets into the act now with a delightful on drive.  


Four: Amla flicks it off his legs again. This time Jake Ball errs in length. 


Amla looks good today. He needs an outing like this just before the Champions Trophy to be at the top of his game. 


Four: Willey strays in line again and Amla glances it to the fine leg boundary. The England seamer is trying a lot of variety but it isn't paying of at the momement.  


Huge appeal for a caught behind. But the umpire nods against it. Amla survives. 


Four: Strayed into the pads of Amla who flicks it through fine leg for another boundary.  


South Africa have started their chase and Amla hits the very first ball to the ropes. Short and outside off, the batter punches it through the offside gap. 


All Out: A displined bowling attack from the Proteas has helped bundle out England for just 153. Rabada was outstanding with figures of 4/39 


Out: Ball goes for a wild sweep shot and Maharaj cleans him up. England are now 143/9. Just the previous delivery Ball had chipped it to the ropes now he has paid the price for being too greedy.  


Wicket: England have lost their 8th. Only two more left for the South African bowlers to pick. The big scalp of Bairstow!
