England v South Africa

England will take on South Africa in the second of three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) at the Rose Bowl, Southampton.

After Stokes's heroics with the bat had helped England score 330 for six in their 50 overs, South Africa needed 10 runs from the last 10 balls of their innings with five wickets remaining, but an excellent final over from Wood that cost just four runs sealed victory.

With seven runs needed off the final over from Wood (0-48), the duo could manage only four singles, thereby allowing England to win the game by two runs and take the series with it.

South Africa were in cruise control to win the match when they required just 10 runs of 10 balls.

Despite the loss of Behardien, Miller and Chris Morris began teeing off and South Africa looked on track for a magnificent win.

Since he scored three successive half-centuries previous year, Buttler's ODI efforts have brought 25, 31, 10, 11, 14, 0, 7 and 7.

De Kock and captain AB de Villiers steadied the ship with a 96-run partnership, during which both batsmen surpassed their fifties, before De Villiers was caught behind off the bowling of Plunkett for 52 off 50 balls, which included six boundaries.

"But England put you under a lot of pressure, and you have got to make sure you are on top of your game and transfer the pressure back on to them".

Morgan lived dangerously, but his fourth-wicket stand with Stokes was worth 95 by the time De Kock gathered a low catch off Rabada in the 33rd over. The dismissal of Hales was followed by a freak run out of Joe Root, Pretorious deflecting a Morgan drive onto the stumps with the Yorkshireman out of his ground at the non-striker's end. "Hopefully we'll get a clearer picture". The wicketkeeper was spared on 28 when Stokes, with his first delivery of the match, failed to cling on to a hard caught and bowled chance.

He deceived Stokes with a well-flighted delivery that took the left-hander's outside edge only for the ball to go through Amla's hands at slip for four.

The all-rounder then equalled his career-best 101, hitting 11 fours and three sixes from 79 balls.

"We were disappointed with the way we played at Leeds - that s probably the most mistakes we ve made in a game for a while", du Plessis told reporters on Friday.

England allrounder Ben Stokes has conceded his troublesome knee is affecting his bowling following his match-winning hundred against South Africa in Southampton.
