South Africa vs England Jofra Archers Workload A Challenge For Eoin Morgan Who Doesnt Know His Best XI Yet

South Africa's innings was anchored by the experienced Faf du Plessis (58 from 40 balls), who was especially brutal on Tom Curran (1-55), smashing the England seamer for 24 runs in his second over that contributed to the bowler's most expensive figures in global Twenty20 cricket. However, a good partnership between Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes insured that they were always in the game.

Rassie van der Dussen and Heinrich Klaasen provided the finishing impetus as South Africa finished with a score of 179-6. I want to be playing cricket for England - that is first and foremost. Ngidi had Morgan caught in the deep for 12 but one lusty blow from Sam Curran assisted Bairstow, and the Yorkshire batsman finished the game in style as he blasted a four and a six in the final over to see England home by five wickets with four balls to spare. Things started well for England with Sam Curran removing Temba Bavuma in the first over of the match but Quinton de Kock and Du Plessis soon got the Proteas moving, with the latter slapping 24 off Tom Curran's first over including two big sixes. Jofra Archer, Tom Curran, and Chris Jordan contributed with a wicket each. Bairstow started the left-arm wrist spin of Tabariz Shamsi with three sixes on the way to his sixth T20I half-century off just 31 balls.

Bairstow who was sent in at number four probably played one of his best innings. He hit nine fours and four sixes in his innings.

The win will be pleasing for captain Eoin Morgan, who said this week he did not know his best XI in the shortest format but could already have had some questions answered ahead of the second fixture in the three-match series in Paarl tomorrow. Ben Stokes played second fiddle to him and was later dismissed after scoring 37 runs.

England head into the match as favourites but South Africa are well capable of pulling off an upset if they find complacency in the English camp. It was the first worldwide match in South Africa after the break because of the Coronavirus epidemic. England chased down the target in 19.2 overs and now have a 1-0 lead in this series.
