AB de Villiers Scoops England Bowler David Willey Out Of The Stadium

AB de Villiers Scoops England Bowler David Willey Out Of The Stadium”

Something most uncommon happened yesterday, the T20 match between South Africa and England ended up throwing English batsman Jason Roy into a special category, he became one of the few batsmen in the history of the game to be dismissed due to obstructing the field in the second of the three-match T20I series being played between England and South Africa.

Although he appears slightly-built the Surrey paceman surprised several South Africa batsman with his speed on the way to figures of three for 33 in his maximum allowed four overs in the second Twenty20 global at Taunton on Friday.

Proteas skipper AB de Villiers showed his intent from the off, crunching 18 off the tenth over before losing partner Smuts (45) to a Liam Dawson full toss.

Roy shared a 110-run second wicket partnership with Jonny Bairstow (47) but with 29 needed to win off the final three overs, England fell short.

Morgan described it as a 50-50 call but behind the scenes he may seek to stoke up some additional desire among his troops as they look to make it two limited-overs series wins over South Africa this summer and four Twenty20 global wins from four at Sophia Gardens, where AB de Villiers, who saw no issue with the appeal, plays his final match of the tour.

Taunton had waited 34 years to host an England game - the famous son of Somerset, Sir Ian Botham, in his pomp when Sri Lanka paid a visit during the 1983 World Cup.

South Africa might pick more batsmen than usual in the squad because of the increasing likelihood that captain Faf du Plessis will miss the first test at Lord's‚ and because AB de Villiers has chosen not to play in the series.

"I think we have got to give credit to our bowlers".

Andile Phehlukwayo delivered a superb final over for South Africa, but Roy's dismissal was the talking point as it proved to be the pivotal moment in the match.

The deciding game is in Cardiff on Sunday, when the teams are playing for this T20 series but also a solid psychological advantage ahead of the test series starting next month. The South Africans appealed in unison, seeing that Roy would have been run out as he was way short of the ground. Eoin Morgan (captain), 5.

England got off to the ideal start thanks to Curran, who had an instant impact after coming on in the fourth over to bowl Reeza Hendricks with his second ball in global cricket to leave South Africa on 25 for one. It was probably a 50-50 call. "He made us believe that we could win that game from anywhere, and we did". "We lost a game at the wrong time and it's blown up in our faces and it's been a it of a tough time for us as a team".

Morgan has said that the England players like performing at Cardiff and, to be fair, they have a pretty decent record there. "I've bowled a lot of overs and that limited how my pace was".
