I hope they haven't forgotten it's a 20 over match and not 50 overs.

I suppose that even if England had decided in advance to play just one spinner throughout the series, they would want injury cover for Rashid.

It looks as if England are using this series to give some players a bit of rope and see if they hang themselves. Hence not having Buttler face the first ball even if a spinner is bowling the first over ... If Roy is pants against spin he can't really be part of the grand plan, because the oppo will just open with two spinners.

My view is that they weren't working very well!

I was thinking of the second half of the innings as I missed the first.

This is an Ian Bell-like T20 innings from Jos.

Ball coming onto the bat nicely under lights with a bit of rain.

Two big overs have put us back in the game.

100 partnership in 53 balls.

Brilliant stuff from these two. I thought the game was done when England had such a poor last five with the ball. That said, a lot of junk from the bowlers.

Much was made of the pitch being slow, but since dusk fell the ball has skidded on.

The bowling has not been good but the spinners have been negated completely.

SA may well have wished they had bowled first.

Hopefully Malan gets a go this over to get 100.

Savage.

Wonder if de Kock had made the run out, would things have been different?

Malan ends on 99*, don't think he'd realised, lol.

It looked a challenging total but this pair made short work of it.

Great performance from Malan and Buttler. Unlucky Malan couldn't get the three figures.

Nope pretty sure he forgot about the wide. Lovely batting anyway, hope he can do the same in Asia.
