South Africa beat England by 90 runs
Right then! David Miller goes on to the podium and lifts the series trophy along with his teammates, who rejoice and pose for a team photo. With this, the white-ball tour comes to an end after a 1-1 draw in the ODIs, South Africa have gone from 1-0 down to clinch the T20I series 2-1. There is still a lot of action left in this tour but before the focus shifts to the Test series, The Hundred will begin on the 3rd of August. The first Test match will be played after a prolonged break at Lord's on the 17th of August and will begin at 3.30 pm IST (10 am GMT). Our build-up for that game will begin much sooner. Do join us then. Take care and goodbye!
The winning captain of South Africa, David Miller says it's a privilege to play 100 caps for his country. Adds that he thought Rilee Rossouw and Reeza Hendricks batted brilliantly and got them off to a great start. Mentions they quickly forgot about the first game and is happy they bounced back in this series. Adds that Tristan Stubbs is really gifted and mentions that he has showcased it in domestic cricket but it is incredible to see him do it on the big stage. Mentions that everyone in the team is making a remarkable effort. Whenever they are in trouble, someone or the other put their hand up and that's what they need at the moment.
English skipper, Jos Buttler says that they thought it was a big score to chase down but he was confident and they always look to challenge themselves with the bat. Adds that they played disappointingly and lacked intent and the opposition bowled well too. Mentions that this summer has been a realization and they haven't performed up to their potential and have to work on their shortcomings. Says that they have a bit of time to go away and reflect before heading on to the big tournament and they need to have confidence in their players. Mentions that the three T20Is in Australia before the World Cup will be crucial for the team.
Reeza Hendricks WINS THE PLAYER OF THE SERIES AWARD for his incredible effort with the bat throughout the series. He says that he is very happy with his performance. Mentions that overall it is all about team performance and he got great support from his team-mates. Adds whenever he comes out at the crease, he aims at putting up a solid performance and leaving a stamp of authority. Ends by saying they have definiately improved since the defeat in the first game.
Tabraiz Shamsi (4-0-24-5) is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his match-winning spell. Shamsi says that he really enjoyed himself today but all credit goes to the batters and the bowlers who laid the foundation for him. Adds that it is all about helping each other and sometimes his good work helps others and vice-versa. Says that he keeps in his mind about bouncing back and looks to better his outings from the previous games. Adds that his wife told him to get four wickets in the game and hence his celebrations were a bit more animated when he got those wickets.
Moeen Ali wins the Player of the Summer, an award that he gets for producing the most consistent performances throughout the English summer. He starts by saying he has played decently but his side is not on the bright side. Mentions his role in the side is to float around, and go hard whenever he comes out on the track but it did not pay off.
Presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the game, Jos Buttler won the toss and opted to bowl first and given the dimensions of the ground, the par score seemed to be around 170 or so. England made a fast start but Reeza Hendricks and Rilee Rossouw counter-attacked brilliantly before the likes of Aiden Markram and David Miller took on the bowlers. Even with a couple of stop-starts due to rain, the South African batters managed to find the fence with regularity. Only David Willey was on top of his game with the ball for England and Chris Jordan had a rare forgettable outing as he conceded more than 50 runs. With a big score to chase, England needed to click in the Powerplay but the visitors never let them get any sort of momentum in the chase. Their batters were blown away by the opposition bowlers and it was Tabraiz Shamsi who picked up five wickets to seal an easy victory for the Proteas.
England have had a miserable white-ball summer and apart from the mauling of the Netherlands, they have come up short against the heavyweights of World Cricket. Jos Buttler, who was having a stellar year up until taking on full-time captaincy of the white-ball team must now feel dejected, having failed to win a single series at home. Both openers looked vulnerable and got out cheaply and once the middle order was exposed, the required rate had climbed up too high. Caught in between staying at the crease and keeping up with the scoring rate pressure, the English batters were sent back to the hut one by one and barely managed to cross 100 runs. Only Jonny Bairstow managed to bat for a longer period of time but all in all, it has been a very disappointing batting display from the hosts, who were even mocked by their own fans.
Given the way South Africa started this T20I series, conceding plenty of runs and being poor in the field, this has been some performance from them. They bowled well and hanged on to all their catches and there were plenty of them in this game. Keshav Maharaj gave them a good start with the ball but after that, every bowler that came into the attack, played his part and picked up wickets. Both spinners were outstanding but Tabraiz Shamsi was on a different level altogether as he picked up a five-wicket haul in a T20I game and that indeed is a rare sight. The pacers were economical and the Proteas will be proud of the way they have bounced back here after losing the first game of the series by a big margin.
This has been as dominant as it gets from South Africa as they have ripped apart the English batting order to seal a memorable comeback series win, their first T20I series victory in England. The match started with a wicket-maiden from David Willey but since then it has been all Proteas.

OUT! CAUGHT! Straight to the man! Keshav Maharaj bowls this one just a bit slower and angles it into leg stump. Jos Buttler looks to attempt the cut once again by going past the leg stump and gets another outside edge. This time it is a thick one and carries to the man at short third man. Lungi Ngidi takes a simple catch in front of him and bUttler departs once again for a low score.

Lungi Ngidi To Jason Roy
Close but not close enough it seems. Ngidi goes bit wider and angles it into the pads. Jason Roy looks to flick it away but the ball nips back in a long way and pings him on the pads. There is a bit of an appeal from the bowler but it is turned down.

Anrich Nortje To Jason Roy
This is poor from Keshav Maharaj and he has his hand up right away. Length, close to the off pole, Roy stays back and nudges it towards point for a quick run. Maharaj has a wild throw at the bowler's end and there's no one backing up there. The ball runs away into the fence and it will be five runs to Roy.
