SA vs ENG [Twitter reactions]: Jason Roy’s ton in vain after Rassie van der Dussen’s fine century in 1st ODI


South Africa defeated England in the first One-Day International (ODI) played at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Friday.

After choosing to bat first, the hosts put up a strong performance, with Rassie van der Dussen smashing a brilliant century. Van der Dussen scored 111 off 117 balls, with the help of 6 fours and one six.

Experienced campaigner David Miller also chipped in with valuable contribution, slamming 53 off 56 balls, including 4 fours and 1 six, as the South African team posted 298/7 on the board in their allotted 50 overs. For the touring party, all-rounder Sam Curran picked up three wickets while conceding only 35 runs in 9 overs.

In response, England’s innings got off to a strong start thanks to explosive opener Jason Roy and his partner David Malan. The duo added a dominating stand of 146 for the opening wicket as the tourists looked in complete control.

Roy went on to smash a remarkable hundred, scoring 113 off 91 balls, featuring 11 fours and 4 sixes. Similarly, Malan slammed 59 from 55 deliveries, including 9 boundaries. However, as soon as the duo got out, the rest of England’s batting unit fell like a pack of cards as the Jos Buttler-led side could only manage to reach 271, losing the contest by 27 runs.

South Africa’s bowlers produced an outstanding comeback performance, with Anrich Nortje destroying the English batting order, taking 4 wickets for 62 runs in his quota of 10 overs. Likewise, Sisanda Magala also shined with the ball and bagged a three-wicket haul while giving away 46 runs from 9 overs.
