Twitter reactions: Temba Bavuma-inspiring South Africa seal ODI against England


Temba Bavuma struck a superb century while David Miller hit an unbeaten 58 as South Africa beat England by five wickets in the second ODI to seal the three-match series.

Put into bat, England rode on skipper Jos Buttler’s 94 not out and Harry Brook’s 80 to post a formidable total of 342/7 on the scoreboard. Moeen Ali also contributed with 51 while Sam Curran (28 off 17) hit some meaty blows in the slog overs.

But South Africa, in the run-chase, kept required run rate in control, thanks to skipper Bavuma, who played a brilliant knock of 109 (102) comprising 14 fours and a six. Miller showed great composure right through the innings and ensured Bavuma’s effort doesn’t go in vain. The home team reached the set total in 49.1 overs and took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 50-overs series.

When asked about his ton in the post-match presentation, the winning captain Bavuma said: “It was very special.”

He added: “It was very enjoyable. I managed to hit a few out of the middle.”

On the other hand, Buttler lauded both teams’ efforts in the second ODI.

“We didn’t expect the ball to swing as much as it did at the start but to come back and post 340 was a fantastic effort,” said Butler. “It was a brilliant game of cricket and a great chase by South Africa.”
