Dawid Malan swipes Kagiso Rabada for a huge six

Dropped catches, some ordinary bowling on South Africa's part and the lethal Jonny Bairstow-Mooen Ali partnership has helped England secure a 1-0 lead. Chris Jordan's accurate death bowling also came to the fore when Tristan Stubbs was unstoppable at one point. South Africa were two down for almost nothing while chasing 235 and that ensured it needed carnage for them to even come close. Reeza Hendricks and Stubbs did their part but that was never enough. England making a mockery of the bowling in the last few overs clearly got them a few more than par.
