Stokes vents fury as Roy controversy costs England win against South Africa

Liam Dawson smashed the penultimate ball for a one-bounce four but the final delivery from the South African seamer beat Dawson and the tourists levelled the three-match series at 1-1.

Chasing 175 to win, England lost Billings early, but Jason Roy and Bairstow made up for it with a 110-run partnership, during which Roy surpassed his fifty. Roy had his back towards the fielder when the ball hit his toes, however, he was looking at the fielder when he was throwing the ball.

But‚ unlike them‚ Kuhn‚ at 33‚ older than them and the owner of seven T20 global caps‚ has not played test cricket. Had it travelled another six inches, it would have left England requiring just two to win from the final ball.

After their Champions Trophy semi-final meltdown against Pakistan, the England captain, Eoin Morgan, bemoaned a lack of knockout experience in his side. It's a hard one and we've been in those circumstances where it's been a bit more black and white, but today I thought it was 50-50.

Morgan described it as a 50-50 call but behind the scenes he may seek to stoke up some additional desire among his troops as they look to make it two limited-overs series wins over South Africa this summer and four Twenty20 worldwide wins from four at Sophia Gardens, where AB de Villiers, who saw no issue with the appeal, plays his final match of the tour.

"Everyone in the changing room thought it could go either way, so it's not massively controversial", Morgan told reporters. You can see why the umpires gave him out. Jason obviously looked at the umpire but after that he ran in a straight line, so that's why it was a 50-50 call. "We didn't deserve to win because we didn't capitalise on the start we had".

In the end, England could manage 171 runs for the loss of six wickets.

Democrat Jon Ossoff vs — Georgia special election
The election outcome will not alter the balance of power in Washington, where Republicans control both chambers of Congress. He has said he grew up in the district and now lives close to Emory University, where his fiancée attends medical school.

It happened off the second ball of 15th over.

AB de Villiers (46) and Farhaan Behardien (32) helped South Africa to post a stiff target for the English team.

Having equalled his career-best T20I score in the first match of this series, he made another 47 here and produced a couple of shots - a cover-driven four off something approaching a yorker from Morkel and a pull for six off the same bowler - that were especially memorable.

The deciding game is in Cardiff on Sunday, when the teams are playing for this T20 series but also a solid psychological advantage ahead of the test series starting next month.

Mangaliso Mosehle fell shortly after, while Jon-Jon Smuts smashed 45 off 35 balls, which included four boundaries and three sixes, before he was dismissed by Liam Dawson.

"It looks a lot worse than it actually is with us appealing like that, but you've got to appeal to get a decision from the umpires".
