South Africa defeated England by 58 runs in the second Twenty20 international, thanks in large part to Rilee Rossouw’s undefeated 96.
South Africa won decisively by 58 runs against England in the second Twenty20 international on Thursday in Cardiff, levelling the three-match series at 1-1 thanks to Rilee Rossouw’s unbeaten 96. Reeza Hendricks made 53, the opener’s second fifty in as many days, and Rossouw’s innings served as the cornerstone of a total score of 207-3.
Tabraiz Shamsi, a left-arm wristspinner, went on to take 3-27, Andile Phehlukwayo, an all-rounder, took 3-39, and paceman Lungi Ngidi, a fast bowler, grabbed 2-11 as England, needing to win by 208 runs, were knocked for 149 in the 17th over.
In a considerably improved fielding effort after a subpar performance during a 41-run loss in the series opener at Bristol on Wednesday where England produced an overwhelming 234-6, South Africa also held many good catches.
David Miller, the captain of South Africa, remarked, “It’s a wonderful turnaround from last night. “To clarify a few points, we held a few meetings this morning.”
Jos Buttler, the captain of England, was left to lament that none of his batters scored more runs than Jonny Bairstow’s 30.
A couple people got starts, but they didn’t play the innings that decided the game like Rilee did, he claimed.
“We haven’t exactly delivered what we are potential of.
It’s set up for a fantastic championship match at Southampton (on Sunday).”
Buttler scored 16 runs off of Phehlukwayo in three deliveries (two sixes and a four), only to be caught by Hendricks off a flying top edge and dismissed for 29.
As struggling opener Jason Roy holed out for 20 against Shamsi in the ninth over, England were 77-3, and Hendricks had another excellent catch.
After that, the Proteas defeated England 88–4.
Moeen Ali, who in Bristol had scored England’s fastest T20 fifty off only 16 balls, was out for 28 when he drove Shamsi, but Maharaj managed to hold onto the ball low down while sprinting around from wide long-off.
