Cardiff [UK]July 29 (ANI): After his team’s 58-run second T20I win over England, South Africa captain David Miller said the bowlers made it easy for him by picking up wickets.

An all-round show from South Africa led by Riley Rossouw and spinner Tabraiz Shamsi helped the visitors to a 58-run win over England in the second T20I of the three-match series in Cardiff on Thursday.

“We’ll get the win. Good turnaround for us. Great game. We had one or two runs to clean up from last night. We picked ourselves up. I’m really impressed with the bowlers. They made it easy for me picking up wickets. I didn’t juggle too much because they were doing really well. Huge boundary there. It was a left-right combination that we have to remember,” Miller said in the post-match presentation.

The three-match series is now tied at 1-1.

In the first innings, South Africa put 207/3 on the board with Riley Rossouw smashing an unbeaten 96 off 55 balls with ten fours and five sixes. Risa Hendricks also scored a superb 53 off just 32 balls. England couldn’t do much damage as spinner Moeen Ali and pacers Richard Gleeson and Chris Jordan could only manage a wicket each.

Chasing 208 runs, England lost wickets regularly and never looked like they would pose a threat. Half the team returned to the hut before they could cross the 100-run mark. Contributions did come from captain Jos Buttler (29), Moeen Ali (28) and Jonny Bairstow (30) but it was not enough to prevent the Proteas from claiming a 58-run victory as the hosts were bowled out for 149. Shamsi (3 /27) became South Africa’s best bowler.

Rossov scored 96 points and was named Man of the Match.

Brief Scores: South Africa: 207/3 (Riley Rossouw 96, Riza Hendricks 53, Moeen Ali 1/17) beat England: 149 in 16.4 overs (Jonny Bairstow 30, Moeen Ali 28, Tabraiz Shamsi 3/27) by 58 series. (ANI)
