Right, who’s up for another white-ball series? Tough, because you’re getting one: England v South Africa in a three-match, five-day T20 series. They play in Bristol tonight, Cardiff tomorrow and Southampton on Sunday, when not even a 22-man brawl would steal the back page.

Bilateral series are ephemeral, and not in a good way, but this one isn’t without significance. The World Cup is less than three months away, and both teams are finalising their plans. Or, in England’s case, hastily editing them after the retirement of Eoin Morgan.

His replacement Jos Buttler, England’s ace in T20 cricket, had a poor series against India and will be keen to get back to six-hitting normality, if only to silence the media and the troll in his head. At least he won’t be facing Bhuvneshwar Kumar this time. There are a few doubts over England in white-ball cricket just now. An in-form Buttler, and a series win over South Africa, would banish plenty of them.

A year ago, this would have been a home banker. Now, not so much. South Africa have improved significantly in T20s in the last year or so, winning 15 or their last 19 games. (Before that – and yes I am using arbitrary cut-off points to make the stats a bit more impactful, and yes I know Bill Frindall is probably turning in his grave – they’d won three of the previous 18.)

They beat England at last year’s World Cup, only missing a semi-final place on net run-rate, and recently drew 2-2 away to India. Even without the injured captain Temba Bavuma they look a strong side, especially as Kagiso Rabada is back after being rested for the ODIs. Rilee Rossouw, who walloped 93 off 36 balls for Somerset in the T20 Blast the other week, is also in the squad after a six-year absence.

Key parties

The avid gamers are again out at the box, and the six-hitting is set to renew.

Innings spoil

twentieth over: England 234-6 (Curran 1, Jordan 0) A excellent ultimate over from Ngidi – simply seven from it – and he finishes with undoubtedly distinctive figures of 4-0-39-5.

South Africa want 235 to win. On this pitch, it’s no longer past the nation-states.

WICKET! England 233-6 (Bairstow c Roussow b Ngidi 90)

At the 5th time of asking, Jonny Bairstow is taken within the deep. He is going for a savage 52-ball 90, with 8 sixes. And amid the mayhem, Lungi Ngidi has picked up a five-for.

WICKET! England 232-5 (Livingstone c de Kock b Ngidi 5)

Livingstone is stuck in the back of, throwing the bat at a brief one from Ngidi. Three balls closing. Bairstow is on 90 however he’s off strike these days.

nineteenth over: England 227-4 (Bairstow 90, Livingstone 1) This is now Baristow’s absolute best T20I rating. But he’ll need extra, particularly a century, and he strikes nearer via pulling Rabada for six.

An exquisite yorker from Rabada misses Bairstow’s off stump via this a lot. The six apart, that’s an impressive over from Rabada. He finishes with 4-0-30-0, which within the context of this sport is undoubtedly parsimonious.

WICKET! England 218-4 (Ali c de Kock b Ngidi 52)

Ngidi returns, and Bairstow is dropped for the fourth time! This was once a tougher probability for Klaasen, swooping to his left at deep sq. leg, and the ball went thru him to the boundary for 4.

South Africa are everywhere the display. Ngidi bowls a front-foot no-ball, which means that some other loose hit, after which a large, which means that some other loose hit. Moeen chips that one into the gang at midwicket to succeed in a outstanding half-century from 16 ballsthe quickest in England’s T20 historical past.

Moeen falls later within the over, snicking in the back of for 52. It was once a lovely knock: 18 balls, 2×4, 6×6.

seventeenth over: England 201-3 (Bairstow 73, Ali 46) The increasingly more rampant Bairstow pings Phehlukwayo for successive sixes. The first flew over midwicket, the second one went into the auto park at sq. leg. “It was a like a shotgun off the bat!” coos Eoin Morgan on observation.

A frightened Phehlukwayo follows the ones sixes with back-to-back off-side wides, after which Bairstow is dropped once more! This is absurd. He carted a large slower ball directly down the bottom, however Hendricks put down the most simple of catches.

An strange over concludes with Moeen hitting 3 sixes in a row: a lovely force over additional duvet, a top-edged pull over brief positive leg and a simple directly force. Moeen has 46 from 15 balls! Thirty-three from the over.

“There is still time (before he finally has a good innings) for us to say that we need to talk about Moeen,” says Ian Copestake, who handiest wrote than an over in the past. I do like Moeen within the T20 facet, much less so within the ODIs, however I don’t have a lot time to elaborate as a result of each 2nd ball goes into the gang.

sixteenth over: England 168-3 (Bairstow 60, Ali 26) The younger allrounder Tristan Stubbs comes directly to bowl some occasional offspin. Poor sod: his 3rd ball is beasted down the bottom for six via Bairstow, after which Rossouw drops an easy low probability working in from deep midwicket. That’s Bairstow’s 2nd reprieve of the evening.

It will get worse for Stubbs when he bowls a no-ball that Moeen hits for six extra. He pumps the ensuing loose hit down the bottom for 2, which makes it 20 from the over. The South African spinners have blended figures of 8-0-100-0.

fifteenth over: England 148-3 (Bairstow 50, Ali 19) Moeen pulls Phehlukwayo into the gang at sq. leg, the eleventh six of the innings. He drags the following ball for 4, expertly bisecting the lads at deep midwicket and lengthy on.

A excellent over for England ends with Bairstow using a unmarried to succeed in a punishing half-century from 36 balls. He’s having the summer time of his existence.

14th over: England 134-3 (Bairstow 48, Ali 8) The South African captain David Miller gambles via bringing Shamsi again for a 3rd over. Wrong! Bairstow monsters some other brief ball to cow nook for six, and there are 14 runs for the over. Shamsi’s figures are grisly: 3-0-49-0.

thirteenth over: England 120-3 (Bairstow 38, Ali 6) Moeen will get his first boundary, pulling Rabada elegantly in the back of sq. for 4. In world video games in this flooring, Moeen Ali averages 154 with a strike of 159. He made an incredible hundred in opposition to West Indies in 2017, which was once overshadowed via Ben Stokes’ brawl early the next morning.

twelfth over: England 112-3 (Bairstow 36, Ali 0) That was once the ultimate ball of the over.

WICKET! England 112-3 (Malan c de Kock b Phehlukwayo 43)

Six, 4 and out for Dawid Malan. He performed two stunning photographs, launching Phehlukwayo into the gang at midwicket after which over additional duvet, however drove on the subsequent supply and snicked it thru to de Kock. Malan is going for a classy 43 from 23 balls.

eleventh over: England 101-2 (Malan 33, Bairstow 35) Another excellent over from Maharaj, who restricts England to just 3 singles. He finishes with quite unjust figures of 4-0-31-0.

tenth over: England 98-2 (Malan 32, Bairstow 33) It’s honest to mention England are targetting Shamsi. His first over went for 14; the second one has disappeared for 21.

Malan chipped the primary ball elegantly over additional duvet for six, with the ball touchdown at the boundary sponge. Bairstow heaved a boundary to the similar house, cow nook for him, after which pulled a massive six over sq. leg.

That’s beverages.

ninth over: England 77-2 (Malan 25, Bairstow 21) An superb 3rd over from Maharaj yields handiest 4 singles for England. It looks like they want no less than 200 right here.

eighth over: England 73-2 (Malan 23, Bairstow 19) The left-arm legspinner Tabraiz Shamsi comes into the assault. His first ball is a protracted hop that Malan belts flat and tough over midwicket for six. Malan may not be the sector’s No1 batter any further however he nonetheless has an strange document: he averages 42 with a strike fee of 138.

Later within the over Bairstow pulls viciously against deep midwicket, the place Klaasen loses the ball and we could it cross over his proper shoulder for six. It would had been a comfy catch had he no longer overlooked it.

seventh over: England 59-2 (Malan 16, Bairstow 12) After 5 extra low-risk singles, Bairstow alerts the beginning of an unofficial Powerplay via carting Maharaj’s supply over vast long-on for six.

sixth over: England 48-2 (Malan 13, Bairstow 4) The lack of the openers, and a longish tail, method England wish to regroup for a couple of mins. That lets in Andile Phehlukwayo to return into the assault and escape with a horny affordable over – 5 singles from it.

“Isn’t it time to give another opener a go,” says James Burgess. “I appreciate Roy has credit but have you ever seen a T20 international opener more out of form. It’s just painful. Roy is feast or famine.”

Ah, however as Eoin Morgan would possibly say: the longer the famine is going on, the nearer we’re to the dinner party. (Or to a reluctant acceptance that the famine is now everlasting, and due to this fact you will have to retire.)

fifth over: England 43-2 (Malan 10, Bairstow 2) An amazing over from Ngidi – 4 runs, one wicket.

Meanwhilst, right here’s that unbelievable catch from David Miller to brush aside Jos Buttler.

Great catch! 👏👏👏

WICKET! England 41-2 (Roy c Klaasen b Ngidi 8)

A terrible cameo from Jason Roy is over. He was once performed via a trendy slower ball from Ngidi and sliced it excessive within the air to backward level. Roy’s deficient run continues with a 15-ball 8.

4th over: England 39-1 (Roy 6, Malan 9) Malan selections up Rabada over midwicket for six, a startling shot off handiest his 3rd supply. Roy then survives a run-out probability after enjoying tip and run into the covers. There’s an issue, quite merciless regardless that it’s, that it’s a blessing for South Africa that the throw ignored the stumps. Roy is suffering a little and has seven from 13 balls.

third over: England 29-1 (Roy 5, Malan 1) “Apparently Jason Roy is not far from finding his best form,” says Brian Withington. “I’m not entirely sure it’s worth the wait. Bairstow and/or Root as openers for me. I expect he’ll score a brutal fifty now.”

I feel it’s indubitably well worth the wait. After all, they wouldn’t have the 50-over World Cup with out him, and they’d have received the T20 World Cup had he no longer ignored the semi-final thru harm. He’s additionally had those fallow sessions all the way through his profession. That stated, they are able to’t wait endlessly, and there about 25 cabs at the rank.

WICKET! England 28-1 (Buttler c Miller b Ngidi 22)

David Miller takes an impressive catch to brush aside Jos Buttler! One captain has removed the opposite. Buttler had smacked Ngidi for 6 and 4 to transport to 22 from six balls, and was once in search of some other six when he drove Ngidi down the bottom. He didn’t relatively pay money for this time, and Miller backpedalled frantically from mid-off to take a fantastically judged catch over his proper shoulder. That in point of fact was once an excellent take, and Buttler is going for a 7-ball 22.

A 7-ball 22! And other folks nonetheless have the effrontery to mention we are living in a civilised society.

2d over: England 16-0 (Roy 4, Buttler 12) Kagiso Rabada stocks the brand new ball. Roy, nonetheless looking for variety, misses a hack at the run and survives an constructive LBW attraction. Too excessive. But it’s a cracking over from Rabada, simply 3 from it.

1st over: England 13-0 (Roy 2, Buttler 11) South Africa get started with the left-arm spin of Keshav Maharaj, as they did within the ODIs in opposition to Jason Roy. He sweeps a unmarried to get off the mark, after which Buttler will get a first-ball boundary after a misfield from Heinrich Klaasen within the covers.

Buttler ends the over with a impressive six, waved nonchalantly over vast long-on off the again foot.

Here come the avid gamers. It’s overcast in Bristol, so there’s an opportunity the brand new ball will transfer round. Or it would simply fly to all portions.

“Evening Rob,” says Simon McMahon. “On my way home from Edinburgh after today’s T20 between Scotland and New Zealand at the Grange. Atmosphere was, I think understandably, a bit subdued after Monday’s findings of institutionalised racism within Cricket Scotland. Hopefully it will be the start of real and meaningful change.

“As for the cricket itself, Scotland were always up against it after New Zealand posted 225 for five from their 20 overs, but made a decent fist of the chase to lose eventually by 68 runs. Let’s hope for something closer tonight…”

It’s coming house! (reprise)

This isn’t the sort of excellent learn. Chris Woakes is 33 now and has had knee issues for years. He must be a doubt, no longer only for the T20 World Cup in October but in addition subsequent yr’s defence of the 50-over trophy.

This is a in point of fact attention-grabbing piece from James Wallace on how cricket, and existence, have modified within the age of social media. I’ve by no means had such a lot amusing studying a couple of international language.

The groups

England make 3 adjustments from the ultimate T20 in opposition to India. Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran and Adil Rashid exchange Harry Brook, Phil Salt and David Willey.

Rilee Rossouw performs his first world sport since 2016, and the 21-year-old Tristan Stubbs will get some other probability.

England Roy, Buttler (c/wk), Malan, Bairstow, Ali, Livingstone, Curran, Jordan, Rashid, Topley, Gleeson.

South Africa de Kock (wk), Hendricks, Rossouw, Klaasen, Miller (c), Stubbs, Phehlukwayo, Rabada, Maharaj, Ngidi, Shamsi.

South Africa win the toss and bowl

Jos Buttler, who to a lot mirth dropped the coin as he attempted to turn it, stated he would have bowled as neatly. He’s misplaced seven tosses in a row now.

The obstacles at Bristol are in point of fact brief, so this will have to be an overly high-scoring sport.

54m boundary 😂😂 disgrace

Preamble

Right, who’s up for some other white-ball collection? Tough, since you’re getting one: England v South Africa in a three-match, five-day T20 collection. They play in Bristol this night, Cardiff the next day to come and Southampton on Sunday, when no longer even a 22-man brawl would scouse borrow the again web page.

Bilateral collection are ephemeral, and no longer in a great way, however this one isn’t with out importance. The World Cup is not up to 3 months away, and each groups are finalising their plans. Or, in England’s case, swiftly modifying them after the retirement of Eoin Morgan.

His substitute Jos Buttler, England’s ace in T20 cricket, had a deficient collection in opposition to India and shall be prepared to get again to six-hitting normality, if handiest to silence the media and the troll in his head. At least he received’t be going through Bhuvneshwar Kumar this time. There are a couple of doubts over England in white-ball cricket simply now. An in-form Buttler, and a sequence win over South Africa, would banish quite a few them.

A yr in the past, this could had been a house banker. Now, no longer such a lot. South Africa have progressed considerably in T20s within the ultimate yr or so, profitable 15 or their ultimate 19 video games. (Before that – and sure I’m the use of arbitrary cut-off issues to make the stats a little extra impactful, and sure I do know Bill Frindall is most certainly handing over his grave – they’d received 3 of the former 18.)

They beat England finally yr’s World Cup, handiest lacking a semi-final position on internet run-rate, and not too long ago drew 2-2 away to India. Even with out the injured captain Temba Bavuma they appear a robust facet, particularly as Kagiso Rabada is again after being rested for the ODIs. Rilee Rossouw, who walloped 93 off 36 balls for Somerset within the T20 Blast the opposite week, could also be within the squad after a six-year absence.

It’s a excellent check for either side, simply the sort they want in a World Cup yr. See, I’ve nearly talked myself into being fascinated with the collection.

Tonight’s event starts at 6.30pm.
