De Kock scored his second consecutive half-century
Earlier, Quinton de Kock (65) gave a quick start but England restricted South Africa to 163 runs for 6 wickets. De Kock hit four fours and as many sixes in his 65-ball innings. When he was at the crease, South Africa was scoring at a run rate of around 10, but after his dismissal, England made a good comeback in the match. During this, England's fielding was excellent.

Miller scored 43 runs
Apart from De Kock, only David Miller was able to score runs fast for South Africa. He hit four fours and two sixes in his innings of 43 runs off 28 balls. After hitting a four and a six against Moeen in the second over, De Kock opened his account by hitting two sixes and a four off consecutive balls of Archer. In this fourth over of the innings, Reeza Hendricks also hit a four, thanks to which South Africa scored 21 runs.

De Kock got a reprieve on 58
De Kock hit the fourth six of his innings against Karan in the sixth over, helping South Africa score 63 runs without loss in the powerplay. He completed his half-century in 22 balls by stealing a run in the next over. Rashid and Moeen's spin bowling from both ends curbed South Africa's run rate. Meanwhile, De Kock also got a lifeline on Rashid's ball, when Mark Wood caught the ball and placed it close to the ground.

De Kock and Hendricks added 86 for the first wicket
De Kock hit a four against Moeen in the next over but the bowler dismissed Hendricks to break the 86-run partnership for the first wicket. Hendricks could score only 19 runs in 25 balls. To increase the run rate again, South Africa sent Heinrich Klaasen to bat at number three but Butler ran him out by throwing directly from behind the wicket to the bowling end. After this, Butler handed the ball to Archer and this fast bowler proved his decision right by dismissing de Kock. Butler ended his innings by taking a brilliant catch.

Archer took 2 wickets in a row in the last over
Rashid then dismissed South Africa captain Aiden Markram (1) to take the team's score from 86 for no loss to 115 for four in the 15th over. Miller held one end amid the fall of wickets and continued to play big shots. Archer restricted South Africa to 163 runs by taking the wickets of Miller and Marco Jensen (0) on consecutive balls in the last over.
