Over 20. 12 runs. Bowler: Tom Curran. South Africa: 7-202(rr 10.10)
19.6
W
OUT! Caught. Tom Curran to Bjorn Fortuin. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot Scoop, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short fine leg, by Rashid. That's it! England win a thriller in Durban! What a game, Fortuin goes for the scoop but he holes out to Rashid on the edge of the ring. After the first four balls you backed South Africa to win, but TC brought it back well and managed to go for no runs in his final two balls. The series is tied at 1-1 after two incredible matches, can England pull of a great comeback in the third and final game?
19.5
W
OUT! L.B.W. Tom Curran to Dwaine Pretorius. In-swinging yorker, off stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to. Out! TC with a great in-swinging yorker into Pretorius' toes, the umpire gives him but de Kock screams at Pretorius to review so he does, the decision remains out based on umpires call on both impact and the ball hitting the stumps. South Africa now need three to win with Fortuin on strike.

FOUR! Tom Curran to Dwaine Pretorius. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. Four more, Pretorius with another boundary, Curran all over the place, he goes for a wide yorker, but misses it completely.
19.2

SIX! Tom Curran to Dwaine Pretorius. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Too short from Curran and Pretorius goes big, the slower ball sat up for Pretorius, Curran needs to find a better length for that slower ball.

OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Chris Jordan. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep extra cover, by Bavuma. Bavuma with an insane catch in the deep to get the wicket of Jordan, he nearly took the grab two balls ago with a similar dive, this time he gets round and holds on.

OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Moeen Ali. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Bavuma. A brilliant innings comes to an end with Ali being dismissed for 39 from just 11 balls. That innings has changed the game for England who were looking at 170 at the end of their 20.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Andile Phehlukwayo Wickets : 1
15.1
W
OUT! Bowled. Andile Phehlukwayo to Joe Denly. Slower ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, hit body to. Denly out now, his poor form in T20Is continues, the slower ball beats him all ends up, he tries to pull it but the ball isn't near him, the ball hits his arm and rolls on to the stumps.

OUT! Caught. Dwaine Pretorius to Eoin Morgan. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Bavuma. Wicket! Morgan goes after being caught trying to flat-bat the ball for a boundary, the slower ball gets the man, Morgan is through his shot too early and holes out to Bavuma.

W
OUT! Caught. Tabraiz Shamsi to Jason Roy. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Miller. Wicket! Roy out now, he tries to go big down the ground but doesn't get enough on it for it to go for six, the biggest part of the ground, Roy backed himself, but pays the ultimate price.

W
OUT! Bowled. Andile Phehlukwayo to Jonny Bairstow. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Wicket! Bairstow bowled, this one nipped in a bit and smashed into the top of off. After a nightmare start, Phehlukwayo gets the wicket he wanted, that over has turned on its head with that dismissal.

W
OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Jos Buttler. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Buttler out for 2! Big early wicket for South Africa, he nicks one to de Kock after a good over from Ngidi. Buttler not going well as an opener this series, perhaps it's time for him to drop into the middle order.

OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to David Miller. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Jordan. Miller goes! Big wicket for England, who else but Stokes to take it. The pressure was building, two dots in a row, Miller was playing some expansive strokes as well, this one he felt he could hit, but he holes out to Jordan.

OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Temba Bavuma. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Wicket! Two down now! England on a roll here, Wood bounces Bavuma out, it comes onto the opener too quickly and Bavuma doesn't deal with it well and gloves it to Buttler.

W
OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Quinton de Kock. Full toss, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Stokes. Out! de Kock is caught on the boundary, Stokes with the take in the deep, close to being a no-ball for height, but it looks to be dropping as he makes contact with the ball. That wicket brings an end to a superb innings which has put South Africa in the driving seat here, but England will fancy their chances now that they have their best batter out.
