- England 346-7; South Africa 287 – England win by 59 runs
- Dawid Malan and Jos Buttler hit hundreds
Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan scored backs-to-the-wall centuries but it was Jofra Archer’s stunning return of six for 40 which led England to a consolation victory by 59 runs in the final match of their ODI series at the Diamond Oval on Wednesday night.
Having made an unlikely 346 for seven thanks to a record stand of 232 between the England captain and Malan the hosts refused to be cowed, despite Archer’s brilliance, but they were once again left contemplating the possibility that they could miss out on automatic qualification for the World Cup in October despite winning the series 2-1.
