England lose it at the death, poor game management from the captain, Morgan who had this game in his hands going into the last ball of the second last over. England had this game, some decent bowling at the death but you have to say that England should've been able to put away the slower ball more effectively. South Africa take a 1-0 lead going into the second T20I, they have won the opening game of each series, but failed to maintain their leads in all of the series' so far.

19.6 - L Ngidi to A Rashid

Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to short mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Steyn, by de Kock.

Another one bites the dust, the game management from England has been shocking, Curran gets a two from the first ball then goes big when they need a run a ball. The on-side was open for one, if not two.

Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Miller.

Wicket! Morgan holes out to Bavuma and England are in a little spot of bother, Morgan departs for a brilliant 52, but did he need to do that, get on strike, then they only need 6 from the last over with a set batter on strike.

18.6 - B Hendricks to E Morgan

Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Bavuma.
W
Another half-volley, and another boundary, much better from England here, Morgan looking to win the game by himself.

18.5 - B Hendricks to E Morgan

Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep cover for 6 runs.

18.4 - B Hendricks to E Morgan

Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

Pulled away for four, England still have a chance at reaching this total with that four, Hendricks just goes for the wrong ball with that bouncer.

18.3 - B Hendricks to E Morgan

Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.
