SA vs ENG: England lose 3 wickets in the first 10 overs, game well in balance

On paper 147 looks like a very achievable score England can chase considering the batting quality and depth they have, but things have gone differently. Openers Jos Buttler and Jason Roy could only add 25 runs for the 1st wicket whilst Jonny Bairstow tried attempting a slog sweep and got out on just 3.

Tabraiz Shamsi has been the pick of the South African bowlers, picking up 2 wickets in 3 overs conceding only 11 runs.


Although England have lost 3 wickets, with Ben Stokes at the crease the game is still very much alive for England.
