SA won by 58 runs.
Player of the match: Rilee Rossouw
 
Right then. It's 1-1 as we head into the decider. A drubbing for each side in this three-match series. Which one will come out on top at the Rose Bowl on Sunday before they shift their focus to the longest format? Well, join us at the weekend to find out. Until then, this is duo of Pratyush and Pragadeesh, signing off. Goodnight, see ya!
Chris Jordan with Sky Sports: I was focused on executing the yorkers, trying to access the situation and bowl accordingly. I am in a good place physically and mentally. I want to stay hungry and that's important. I guess on a ground like this bowling short with a change of pace would really help. We have to look at the things we need to improve on and a couple of days' rest will definitely help. It's going to be a great match and I am looking forward to the decider
Rilee Rossouw is the Player of the Match for his unbeaten knock of 93. Here's what he has to say: (The injury) It's alright. A little bit dizzy but the doctors will get us through it. (attempting the ramp) You have to try and be proactive. Jordan was bowling fantastic yorkers and we've discussed about trying to do something different. I'm very proud to be selected for South Africa again. I've done well in Somerset and felt confident coming into the game. (on missing out on a century) I tried my best for the three figures but we're just glad to get the W. (On his shirt tucked in being a superstition) Not at all. I saw the boys tuck in their shirts and it became a thing. Might become superstitious, we'll see.
David Miller (South African captain): We'll take the win. It's a great turnaround from last night. We took our catches, which we didn't do last night. We executed a lot better and were a bit more clear with our plans. We had a couple of meetings in the morning. We had to pick ourselves up and we did that, which is good. I'm chuffed with the bowlers. They (the bowlers) made it easier for me by picking up wickets all the way through. (Five bowlers) I was juggling them around but the guys executed really well tonight and made my job easier. (On promotion Stubbs) A massive boundary on one side and we spoke about it. The left-right combination was very tactical and we decided to go with it. It's one-one going into the decider. We are pretty excited.
Jos Buttler (England Captain): We are pleased with the way we played but it's not good enough. We could've restricted them better in the middle. I think it was a good wicket and there are a few guys who got the start including me but Rossouw played the match-defining innings. We didn't perform well with the bat and that's something we have to look at and play at the highest level. Consistency-wise, we can do much better. It's gonna be a great decider in Ageas-Bowl
South Africa won by 58 runs

Rilee Rossouw - 96* (55) | Tabraiz Shamsi - 3/27
Jonny Bairstow - 30 (21) | Moeen Ali - 1/17

Well, that's the way the cookie crumbles for England. After a dominant performance at Bristol, they've been brought back down to earth by this spirited and proud Proteas side. After superb half-centuries from Rossouw and Hendricks set the tone for the visitors with the bat in hand, the bowlers did the rest.

Plenty of England batters got starts but failed to convert them into anything significant. While Roy was rusty again, Buttler, Bairstow, and Livingstone couldn't make the most of their decent starts. No significant contribution from any England batter as they lost wickets in clusters and never really got any sort of momentum under their belt.

Proving that cricket is a great leveler, Tabraiz Shamsi roared back after an expensive outing in the first game with figures of 3/27 tonight. Phehlukwayo bagged a three-fer as well with Ngidi picking a brace and Maharaj and Rabada sharing a couple of wickets between them. 

With the pace assisting the spinners slightly, Shamsi and Maharaj's extended spells in the middle overs proved to be the defining factor, allowing Miller to get away with five bowlers which included three overs from Phehlukwayo. England remain far from convincing in the post-Morgan era. Let's see what the captains have to say about this contest.
Well. It seems like an optimistic review from de Kock but he's pretty confident. And well, what do we know? Gleeson's got a tickle on that one. That will be that.
16.4 Lungi Ngidi to Richard Gleeson, slow delivery going down leg, Gleeson tries to turn this away but misses it. Wide called. Oh wait, de Kock has convinced Miller to take the review. It turned out to be a superb review as there is a clear spike in the ultra edge when the ball passed the bat. That's it. South Africa level the series by beating England comprehensively by 58 runs
16.3 Lungi Ngidi to Reece Topley, slow delivery again, Topley swings this across the line and the ball goes towards deep mid-wicket
Reece Topley, RHB, comes to the crease
Jordan has reviewed this one. Clear spike on ultra edge though. He'll have to walk. South Africa just one wicket away now.
16.2 Lungi Ngidi to Chris Jordan, OUT! Jordan reviews it but there was a noise and the umpire had no hesitation. Ngidi tricks Jordan with another slow delivery, he was early into the shot again and gets a nick before de Kock takes a regulation catch

Ultra edge confirms there is a clear spike when the ball passes the bat.
Chris Jordan c Quinton de Kock b Lungi Ngidi 5 (4b 1x4 0x6)
16.1 Lungi Ngidi to Chris Jordan, slow delivery outside off, Jordan was into his shot early and the ball beats his inside edge and through to the keeper
Lungi Ngidi [2.0-0-10-0] is back into the attack

Richard Gleeson, RHB, comes to the crease
That's game-defining over from Andile Phehlukwayo. He was under a bit of pressure to start with Livingstone up against him but he's held his nerve. That should seal the deal for the South Africans. The crowd certainly think so, as most of them move swiftly towards the exit.

15.6 Andile Phehlukwayo to Adil Rashid, BOWLED! Slow back of a hand slow delivery, Rashid moves across, goes down one knee and tries to play a scoop shot. But the ball hits his pad and kisses the leg-stump to light up the zing bails.
Adil Rashid b Andile Phehlukwayo 3 (3b 0x4 0x6)
15.5 Andile Phehlukwayo to Chris Jordan, length delivery outside off, Jordan punches this firmly to sweeper cover and takes a single
15.4 Andile Phehlukwayo to Adil Rashid, finally gets it right and bowls a slow delivery just outside off, Rashid tucks this into the leg-side and takes a single
A hat-trick... of wides!
