Morgan defends dropping himself for SA finale

Morgan defends dropping himself for SA finale”

Dawid Malan revealed he tapped into the knowledge of former Australia worldwide Adam Voges before starring on his Twenty20 debut for England against South Africa.

England batsman Jason became the first ever batsman to be given out obstructing the field in T20 Internationals (T20I) during his side's three-run defeat against South Africa at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton on Friday.

Crane's third over went 4, 6, 6, 1, 1 before de Villiers was caught above his head by Alex Hales at deep square leg.

Malan, who will turn 30 in just over two months, admitted he thought his chance of playing global cricket may have gone. The Middlesex left-hander's brutal debut innings of 78, followed by a professional shutout by the bowlers, took England to a 19-run victory over South Africa in Cardiff and with it a Twenty20 series win. They gave only 42 runs in last five overs and picked up five wickets as well.

He achieved the feat during the third and final Twenty20 global (T20I) on Sunday, which England won by 19 runs.

England limited overs captain Eoin Morgan insisted he did the right thing for the team's "development" by dropping himself for the third T20 worldwide against South Africa at Cardiff on Sunday.

England skipper Eoin Morgan had no complaints about the Roy dismissal or the performance of his debutants Livingstone and seamer Tom Curran, who took three wickets.

Roy had 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.

England had enjoyed early success as South Africa's reply started in familiar fashion. If his second six - thumped straight into the River Taff off Morkel -was the most brutal strike in his clinical assault, then the most audacious was the shot that brought up his half-century from 31 balls.as Tahir was dinked through fine leg to the delight of a almost full house. Fair play to the young twirly man, he had the confidence to keep tossing up the ball when one of the game's superstars was whacking him.

"All the best teams in the world have players have that depth and you have to if you want to produce a really good side".

"It is a fantastic experience to play for your country and to contribute in a win like that on debut is fantastic", he said. "But Mason showed great heart and character to get his wicket".

"We let ourselves down in the field with a couple of fumbles and a few dropped catches", De Villiers said.

"I don't think playing one game, you can't think you've made it", Malan told Sky Sports 2.
