Can't get too worked up about the loss given who was missing.  Pretty pointless playing 50 over matches at this point of the tournament cycle, but money talks I suppose.

With the team selection, its pretty clear that the majority of the focus is on the upcoming T20 WC.

For a ODI, the line up was a batsman short and not sure there is much point playing Banton at 6. Got to be opening or no 3 if in the team.

Good to see Rashid back in the team and bowling well. SA 140-4 after 30 overs.

The spin has worked well for England so far today with Root Rashid and Ali all looking dangerous. England have been mostly good in the field as well. SA 208-7 off 45.

Made an easy win into a tight win, some can't help throwing wickets away.

Some shocking fielding from England in the first t20i, we will have done well to keep the chase below 200 now.

It looks a shocking outfield which isnít helping. They look lethargic in the field at the moment.

Brilliant final few overs has completely changed this game. The delivery to get Hendricks just was spectacular
