ICC Champions Trophy

SOUTH AFRICA bounced back to bowl England out for just 153, in the third and final one-day at Lord’s on Monday.

Kagiso Rabada (four for 39), Keshav Maharaj (three for 25) and Wayne Parnell (three for 43) did the damage, as England capitulated to 20 for six at one point.

The South Africans caught surely, and had a lot more intensity, after two poor showings in their previous matches.

Rabada just missed out on a five-wicket haul, as Maharaj came back to clean up the tail.

The Proteas spearhead bowled with good speed and control upfront, while Parnell got some encouraging swing.

Morne Morkel, back in the side, bowled four overs for 15 runs, as he looks to get up to speed before the Champions Trophy.

For England, only Jonny Bairstow (51), debutant Toby Roland-Jones (37 not out) and David Willey (26) offered any resistance, before the hosts were rolled out in just 31.1 overs.

England: Eoin Morgan (capt), Jos Buttler, Alex Hales, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Steven Finn, David Willey, Tob Roland-Jones, Jake Ball.

South Africa: AB de Villiers (capt), Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis, David Miller, JP Duminy, Chris Morris, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Morne Morkel.
