I tell you what the England backroom staff would make a decent Hong Kong sixes team with Silverwood, Collingwood, Trescothick, Foster, Thorpe and Lewis.

That was easy. Malan has amazed me with his ability in this series. I realize he's the top T20 player in the rankings, but the format being behind test and ODI forms, he still has flown under my radar.

He's keeping Joe Root out of the team.

True. Mind you, Joe has enough on his plate, so just as well he plays second fiddle in T20.

May be a strong case for Malan to be in the ODI team.

Though T20 isn't Joe Root's strongest suit. If they have to rest him for one that would be it.

A pretty ruthless demolition job by England after being set a good target. The lack of experience in South Africa’s ranks told in the end. There are just so many match-winners in the England squad that they are able to cover up for players who are out of form or have an off night.

probably being pedantic, but isn't this cheating?

Probably a case of just over complicating things or trying to be too clever.

Reminds me a bit of when Billy Davis would make a timewasting sub for Forest. He would get word on the pitch and the player who was to come off would trot over to the furthest touchline so when his number came up, he could take an extra 10 seconds getting off the pitch. Probably worked once or twice. After that the refs knew what was going on and no doubt compensated for it. So other than seeing 20 seconds before they came off who was coming off, it became completely pointless.

If it saves a bit of time stopping an unnecessary drinks break, I'm all for it.

Me too. And the time-outs that are in some leagues.

Whatever happened to just going out to bat, bowl and field? A coach can only do so much.

Don't think it was working. 68 runs of the last 4 overs.

It's almost like looking to the dressing room before to deciding to appeal.

According to Statute 3.2 of ICC code of conduct, a batsman taking the DRS can consult with his non striking batsman and fielding team can take the opinion of anyone on the field. No external contact is allowed to influence their decision.

Any fielder can go off the field and get info or a coach on the boundary can pass a message to the bowler re fielder or at a gloves change. I think to have numbers up on the balcony is not on.

As mentioned, whatever info they were passing on yesterday was clearly rubbish.

I have no idea what those signals on the balcony meant. Also, Morgan is hailed as a brilliant captain, so why should he need any help? The commentators yesterday reminded us of Hanse Cronje wearing an earpiece on the field. Not his most heinous sin, however.

yes probably not a big deal, but bit naive of Jos Buttler to spell out what they were up to

I would have said it was cheating but apparently they cleared it.

England cleared the use of the communication with the match referee and anti-corruption officials.

No Stokes or Archer for the ODIs so I guess England will go with the following side:

Roy
Bairstow
Root
Morgan
Buttler
Billings
Woakes
T Curran or Moeen
Rashid
Wood
Stone or Topley

They said the match referee was OK with it so it can't be. As Aggers said it was probably the coach trying to stick his oar in as they get fed up watching passively from the sidelines.

Andy Flower did it with the Multan Sultans in 2019 with guess who...Nathan Leamon.
