South Africa pull off last-ball heist to square series

"There is a final to play on Sunday and we are going to be fighting as hard as we can to win that game".

As it was, they fell three runs short after Roy's dismissal for 67 sparked a fine fightback from the Proteas, which levelled the worldwide T20 Series at 1-1.

Surrey's Jason Roy and wicketkeeper batsman Jonny Bairstow shared a 110-run partnership after Tom Curran impressed on debut to restrict the tourists to 174-8.

According to South African media reports, Domingo's contract is up at the end of the England tour and the 42- year-old will have to re-apply for the role if he wished to remain in post.

Cape Town - South Africa beat England by just three runs to win the second Twenty20 global at Taunton on Friday and level the three-match series at 1-1.

Smuts and De Villiers though came together at the fall off the second wicket and the pair really started to put the foot down until Liam Dawson removed Smuts for 45 from 35 balls to leave the score on 96-3.

The rapid rise of Tom Curran looks set to continue after his impressive first outing in an England shirt. Phehlukwayo had a shy at the non striker's end and the ball hit Roy on his boot.

There is no guarantee that he will get the chance to stake that claim in tomorrow's victor takes all decider in Cardiff, but he vowed to try to do even better if he gets the nod.

Opposing captain AB de Villiers added: "We were in the right to ask the question of the umpires".

Captain AB de Villiers and JJ Smuts then started smashing the ball around the ground as the tourists began to put themselves in a risky position and the hosts were in need of a wicket.

"But I don't think anything can prepare you for when you actually get out there - the nerves, the adrenaline".

Meanwhile England captain Eoin Morgan was confident there would be no lingering bitterness between the teams at Cardiff as a result of Roy's unusual dismissal.

As with the ball, South Africa showed more intent with the bat than they had in Southampton but lacked the depth of class to make full use of the favourable batting conditions.

By the time Morgan was dismissed by Dane Paterson England were left needing 11 to win from Phehlukwayo's final over and, after Livingstone was run out, four from the final ball. After dropping a catch in the South Africa innings, the right-hander misfired during the failed chase as a slapstick run out ended a tortured 16 from 18 balls that was a far cry from the way he has bludgeoned attacks for Lancashire and the Lions of late.

The 23-year-old joined up with the squad after the first match of the series, which England won comfortably by nine wickets in a match that saw Mason Crane handed his global bow on his home ground.

De Villiers had smashed 46 from 20 balls - 34 of his runs coming from boundaries - and produced an extraordinary shot to hoist David Willey over his own shoulder for six. The 69mph slower ball that fooled the risky Chris Morris was every bit as impressive as the 87mph yorker to bowl Phehlukwayo.

He was named man of the match for his efforts after his fellow bowlers restricted England to 171 for six, which gave South Africa a three-run win.
