Feb. 12, 2020
Cape Town - South Africa have beaten England by 1 run to win the first T20 international in a three-match series at Buffalo Park in East London.
Set 179 to win, England's reply was driven by opener Jason Roy who scored 70 off just 38 balls.
He was well supported by captain Eoin Morgan (52) but brilliant bowling by Lungi Ngidi in the final over saw him defend just seven runs to bring victory to the home side.
Earlier, the Proteas began their innings well, with 101 coming off the first 10 overs thanks to a fine 43 from Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen (31) and Quinton de Kock (31).
