Over 20: Two sixes and a four in yet another expensive over from Jordan help South Africa post 229/4, the second-highest T20I total. England need 230 to win.

(Follow England’s chase)

Over 19: 18 off the over. 211/4

Over 18: 11 off the over. 193/4

Over 17: 9 off Jordan. 182/4

Over 16: 7 off the over and the wicket of Du Plessis. 173/4

15.3 Willey to du Plessis, OUT

Full toss, swings across the line... and picks out deep midwicket! England bag another, du Plessis trying to get a gallop on during the closing stages but he sent the ball sailing towards Roy, running in off the fence to pouch it safely

Over 15: 14 off Stokes. 166/3

Over 14: 13 off the over. 152/3

Over 13: 5 off the over. 139/3

Over 12: 6 off the over. 134/3

11.5 Ali to Amla, OUT

Struck in front - and given! Moeen was bowling over the wicket, fired it in full and Amla’s run without being dismissed, which began against England in Johannesburg, comes to an end 

Over 11: A quiet over, that. 3 off it. 128/2

Over 10: 11 off the over. Amla completes his 50. 125/2

Over 9: 14 off the over and De Villiers’ wicket. 114/2

8.6 Rashid to de Villiers, OUT, got him

Sliced into the off side! It came at a cost but Rashid has bought the wicket of de Villiers!

Over 8: 4 off the over and De Kock’s wicket. 100/1

7.1 Ali to de Kock, OUT

Smashed into the leg side... but he finds the fielder! England have the breakthrough - but have they already been broken? De Kock continued to give the bowling merry hell but this came off the toe of the bat and went straight to the man at deep midwicket

Over 7: 13 off Rashid. 96/0

Over 6: 11 off Ben Stokes’ first over. 83/0

Over 5: 22 off that Jordan over, including four 4’s and a six. 72/0

Over 4: 13 off the over. 50/0

Over 3: 20 off the over. 37/0
