South Africa claim one-run win over England in T20I thriller

South Africa win thrilling T20 opener by one run as England suffer late collapse England restrict South Africa to 177 in opening T20

Seamer Lungi Ngidi defended seven runs in the final over to bowl South Africa to an unlikely one-run victory as England folded at the death in the first Twenty20 global on Wednesday.

Veteran South Africa pacer Dale Steyn on Wednesday became the country's leading wicket-taker in the shortest format during the first Twenty-20 global against England at the Buffalo Park in Eastern Cape.

"Experiences like this, particularly with a World Cup around the corner, are just so valuable to the team. I didn't panic under pressure, they seemed to be cruising but my job was to get wickets".

Jordan found himself stranded at the non-striker's end in the climax of Wednesday's game, striding out to the middle with five runs needed from four balls only to see Lungi Ngidi close out an improbable win by conceding just three.

In the last over Ngidi dismissed Tom Curran and Moeen Ali, while Adil Rashid was run out off the last ball, trying for an improbable second run which would have tied the scores.

"We never through a cluster of losing wickets, Jason [Roy] and myself established a partnership quite well with the new guys coming in and with the short boundary one side, we never really looked flustered - probably until Ngidi came on in the 18th and probably the last over that he bowled turned the came on its head".

"It was an outstanding game of cricket", added Morgan. For both teams, the strength of their batting is concentrated at the top of the order, led by the two wicket-keepers, Quinton de Kock and Jos Buttler. Both teams gave it absolutely everything and left everything on the field, but in all honesty, I thought in all three departments today (Wednesday) we could make up more than that.

Both innings followed a similar pattern. Each groups scored 68 runs within the first six-over energy play and each had scored 113 runs after 12 overs earlier than slowing down within the closing overs.

Opening batsman Roy was ruthless in reaching his fifty off 22 balls en route to scoring 70 off 38 shipments with 7 fours and 3 6s.

Rassie van der Dussen (31) joined Bavuma and the pair added 63 for the second wicket off 41 deliveries before Van der Dussen fell to Ben Stokes and the innings lost momentum.

England's bowlers pulled it back and Chris Jordan was - like Ngidi - brilliant at the end for his team with 2-28.

DID NOT BAT: M.A. Wood. Andile Phehlukwayo and Beuran Hendricks took two wickets each, while Steyn contributed with one scalp.

At nine down, Adil Rashid was left needing three from the final delivery for victory or two to force a super over, but he could only manage one as the returning Dale Steyn and captain Quinton de Kock combined for a runout that sparked joyous scenes in East London.

MATCH REFEREE: D.C. Boon (Australia).
