- 2nd ODI: England, 201, bt South Africa, 83, by 118 runs
- Teams level at 1-1 after rain-affected game; decider on Sunday
England’s summer of chaos shows no signs of slowing down as they snatched four wickets from 10 balls for no runs at the start of South Africa’s innings, ultimately claiming a 118-run win to level the series in a contest that accelerated as it went on.
Rain delayed the start of play by almost four hours and both teams were bowled out before completing their allotted 29 overs. But there was certainly no shortage of action. England’s 201 all out proved more than enough as Reece Topley’s two for 17 set the tone in bundling the tourists out for 83.
