- S Africa 207-3; England 149; SA win by 58 runs
- England’s top scorer is Jonny Bairstow with 30
South Africa levelled the series with a mighty 58-run victory over England in Cardiff on a night of glorious rediscovery for the tourists, for whom both Rilee Rossouw and the ability to catch returned in phenomenal style.
The Proteas’ defeat in Wednesday’s opening fixture in Bristol was marked by some hapless fielding but here they were almost faultless. Their improvement was not confined to catching but nevertheless not a single genuine chance went unsnaffled, with Keshav Maharaj providing the highlight with a fabulous diving grab to dismiss Moeen Ali, leaving England’s score at 88 for four and their chances at minimal.
