England vs South Africa, T20 World Cup 2024 Highlights: South Africa saw off a late fightback from England powered by Harry Brook and Liam Livingstone as they defended a target of 164 and beat the reigning champions by seven runs at the Darren Sammy Stadium in St. Lucia. South Africa scored 163/6 batting first and managed to keep England pinned down for almost the entirety of their chase. Kagiso Rabada dismissed the dangerous Phil Salt in just the second over of the innings. The South African fielders and bowlers kept the pressure on England throughout the first 10 overs, leading to Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow falling while trying big shots. England's collapse continued until Harry Brook started staging a fightback after the 13th over....Read More

Livingstone joined the party and England suddenly raced ahead when they 21 runs in the 17th over. However, South Africa clawed back after that with Livingstone falling to Rabada in the 18th and Brook falling to a quite sensational catch by Aiden Markram in the last over bowled by Nortje. Brook scored 53 runs in 37 balls while Livingstone made 33 in 17.

Earlier, South Africa got off to a strong start batting first thanks almost exclusively to Quinton de Kock. The wicketkeeper-batter scored his second consecutive half-century in just 22 balls. However, his opening partner Reeza Hendricks struggled to get going and while their stand produced 86 runs in 59 balls, Hendricks scored just 19 off 25 balls before falling to Moeen Ali in the 10th over. De Kock fell soon thereafter to Jofra Archer thanks to a brilliant catch from wicketkeeper and captain Jos Buttler on 65 off 38 balls.

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: Quinton de Kock is the player of the match

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: South Africa exploited the powerplay, England couldn't. And well, it wasn't South Africa but Quinton de Kock really who scored all those runs in the powerplay, Reeza Hendricks was struggling to get anything.

“It (the pitch) definitely doesn't play the same as night games. It's completely a different surface compared to the night games. There was a little bit of extra bounce early on. I try to carry on confidence game by game. We bowled really well in the powerplay, and we controlled it very nicely. To be able to defend 160 on a decent wicket is a good effort from us.”

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: South Africa beat England by seven runs!

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: And breath. That was some game and South Africa would feel very good about themselves indeed with this one. They remain unbeaten in the 2024 T20 World Cup, they have won quite a few close ones but this will be doubly satisfying. Not only did they manage to defend a target of 164 against one of the most potent T20 batting lineups in the world, they did it despite having to stave off a late fightback and a momentary collective brain scramble with regards to their sudden tactical shift to try and bowl yorkers to Brook and Livingstone.

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: Baartman has been sent everywhere in this over and this match has turned on its head.

The second is also a full toss and Livingstone smashes that through cover for another four. Baartman just can't stop bowling full tosses, is third is another one and this time it goes for a six over square leg. His fourth is a full toss as well and Livingstone can only toe-end it away to midwicket to run two. Finally Baartman lands the fifth one on length, the batters run a single. Another full toss comes and Brook hits it down the ground for another four. Brook on 47 off 30, Livingstone on 33 off 15.

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: Is this a good surface or a sluggish one? That is what the commentators were wondering halfway through this innings as they saw that everybody apart from Quinton de Kock struggled to score runs. David Miller also got close to getting to a half-century later on but England have well and truly put South Africa through the ringer here. If the pitch is as good as the commentators reckoned before this innings, this should be a real uphill task for South Africa to defend this.

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: First a stunner of a catch to get De Kock, then a ridiculous catch to send back Klaasen, England's captain doing the business here. You had to see it to believe it. Mark Wood bowling his first over in the 14th, Klaasen steps to leg side, the pacer follows him and it ends up being a wide well down the leg side. The batters set off after the ball hits Buttler on the pads and he has to scamper after it. However, he picks it up turns around and unleashes a bullet throw while completely off balance in one slick movement. That hits the stumps at the non-striker's end and Klaasen just continues jogging towards the dressing room. Take a bow Jos!

A brilliant catch to end a brilliant innings.

Mark Wood takes it low, De Kock hangs around though as the umpires send it upstairs. The third umpire takes a long, hard look at it. It was a very low catch indeed and in the end, the third umpire decides that the ball was grounded. England are very unhappy about this, Wood and Buttler arguing with the onfield umpire about this. Well if every player in the world, including the English, hadn't kept complaining about the soft signal, these umpires would have had some power to influence that decision. But, the ICC has taken away the power from the only officials who can see something like this in 3D and England have no choice but to move on. Four more runs in that over, the boundaries have dried up for South Africa.

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: South Africa's record unbeaten run

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: South Africa's victory against USA was their fifth in a row, more than they have ever managed in the T20 World Cup. This is quite a deceptive winning streak though, as the Proteas have looked quite vulnerable a number of times. They may have been playing on tough pitches but that is no excuse for struggling to beat Nepal and the Netherlands. They also seemed to lose the plot for a bit when Andries Gous and Harmeet Singh started getting USA's chase in order in their previous match.

England vs South Africa Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024, ENG vs SA: Those that followed the IPL this season, particularly KKR fans, would know that the Phil Salt is onto something special this year. Against the West Indies, for whom his KKR opening partner in crime Sunil Narine used to play, he unleashed the full array of shots in his arsenal, mostly inside a single over. England were chasing a target of 181 and Salt was on the money right from the get-go. He finished unbeaten on 87 off 47 as England won the match in the 18th over. The catalyst for that was Salt going 4, 6, 4, 6, 6 and 4 in the 16th over by Romario Shepherd. England had needed 40 to win from 30 balls before that over, they needed 10 to win from 20 at the end of it.
