Moments after Jason Roy departed with a worrying niggle, England lost Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow in quick succession. While Buttler was deceived by an off-pace ball and holed out to mid-off, Bairstow was a touch late on the ball as he looked to tuck it around the corner, getting trapped plumb. England were in a commanding position at 50/0 after five overs, but the exit of Roy due to an unfortunate strain triggered a mini-collapse in the Herculean 190-run chase.
#England lose Buttler and Bairstow! 💥💥
Eoin Morgan’s side are effectively three down after losing Roy too, Bairstow lbw to Shamsi after Nortje got Buttler – 59-2 and #SouthAfrica have hope again… #T20WorldCup
