Umpire Marais During the opening day of the series, Erasmus failed to see the delivery, which resulted in much laughter on Twitter

In the inaugural one-day international match between South Africa and England, there were some magnificent batting runs, and Andrich Nortje delivered an outstanding bowling stint that ultimately won the game for the Proteas.

Marais Erasmus, the on-field umpire, was the subject of a significant amount of post-match discussion due to the fact that he had officiated the game.

While Jason Roy was attempting to deliver packages, Erasmus was shown in a video that has now gone popular on social media entirely oblivious to the situation.

During the delivery, the footage indicated that the umpire had his back turned towards the batsman, but he swiftly turned around to check what was going on out on the field.

South Africa defeated England by a score of 27 runs in the first one-day international match, which took place at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein. The match was played against England. Fast bowlers Sisanda Magala, Anrich Nortje, and Kagiso Rabada were instrumental in the victory.

As Jason Roy and Dawid Malan put up 146 for the first wicket within the first 20 overs of England’s reply to South Africa’s 298 for seven, it appeared that England was going to cruise to an easy victory.

In the end, Roy scored an impressive 113 runs off 91 balls, but the rest of the batting lineup failed miserably.

Malan’s disastrous attempt to pull against a short-pitched ball resulted in his being caught for 59, which allowed Magala to make the decisive breakthrough.

He continued his strong performance by dismissing the first-time batsman Harry Brook leg before wicket for zero runs.

As the contest approached its finale, Magala got three wickets for 46 runs and was chosen man of the match. Nortje collected four wickets for 62 runs, and Rabada took two wickets for 46 runs. Both bowlers were unstoppable.
