South Africa beat England to seal ODI series victory as captain

South Africa sealed a one-day international series victory over England as captain Temba Bavuma’s century led a brilliant run chase in his side’s five-wicket win.

England looked to have set a strong total as captain Jos Buttler (94 not out) and Harry Brook (80) led the tourists to 342-7 after Bavuma had put them in to bat in Bloemfontein.

However, the Proteas skipper led from the front with 109 from 102 balls, as South Africa kept up with the required rate throughout, before David Miller (58 not out) and Marco Jansen (32 not out) saw them home with five balls to spare after an unbroken stand of 65.

The victory gives South Africa an unassailable 2-0 lead ahead of Wednesday’s series finale, and provides a further boost to their hopes of securing automatic qualification for the World Cup later this year in India.
