Expecting a routine chase down from possibly the best top six to ever play a t20 game? :sneakoff:

It's an astonishingly good top order. We'll almost certainly lose now won't we. :LOL:

England are seriously impressive at the T20 game. They always have someone that can step up when needed. I can't see anyone challenging them next autumn at the World Cup in India.

3 off the last 6 balls.

England found this hard going but should get there in the end!

SA hitting out now. Archer has been battered in his last over, 6 4 4 . 6 2. 😱

SA doing better than they should on this ground.

SA batted well here. 191/3 off 20.

Going to be an interesting run chase!

Astonishing. The highest ever T20 run chase by England completed with 2+ overs to spare 👏 clap

I am not sure this was the highest ever T20 run chase by England. I seem to remember they have chased over 200 before and one time certainly against South Africa in the World Cup year that was won by WI.

I should say Malan is a great find for England but has been performing remarkably well in the T20 format for quite a while now. Really is impressive and one can tell why he is the number 1 ranked T20 batsman.

Apologies, in haste I failed to register the crucial word *these* in the quote from Aggers below
This will be the highest total England will have to chase in these T20s. They have been put to the sword.

Cancelled again, this time due to positive tests within hotel staff.

I think your boys on home soil will provide the main competition - watched virtually all of the IPL and India have some serious young talent coming through in T20 format.
