England’s batters dominated the game even after their openers departed for low scores. Jonny Bairstow, who took to the field despite fears of an injury, was the star of the day. The right-handed batter slammed 90 off 53 before he was dismissed by Lungi Ngidi in the final ball of the match. However, he got multiple lifelines.
He was given good support by all-rounder Moeen Ali, who smashed 52 off 18. Together, they helped the hosts reach a mammoth total of 234/6 in 20 overs.
In response, South Africa got off to a bad start as they lost Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw early on. Reeza Hendricks scored 57 off 33, but most of the other batters could not stay on the crease long enough.
Tristan Stubbs did make an effort to keep his side in the hunt. The 21-year-old smashed England’s bowlers all over the park to complete his half-century. With 72 of just 28 deliveries, he looked in complete control of the innings and made everyone feel that the Proteas could get past the finish line.
However, he was dismissed by Richard Gleeson when he tried to score on a full-length outside off, but could not power it enough. The ball was easily caught by Jason Roy. Ultimately, South Africa fell short by 41 runs as their 20 overs ended on the score of 193/8.
