    England captain Eoin Morgan: “The performance and level of intensity was improved. I honestly think South Africa had the better of the conditions. The ball skidded on and tested our bowlers.

    “The standout for us today was Moeen Ali. To come in and strike the ball like that was such a match-winning innings. Chris Jordan was outstanding. He leads the attack, has a cool, calm head and delivers when it matters. He’s a guy you want in your side.”

  2. Man of the match

    England’s Moeen Ali, who scored 39 off 11 balls: “It was nice to go out and middle a few to get going and then I went on instinct, to put pressure on the bowlers.”

    South Africa captain Quinton de Kock: “It is great cricket. Both teams are playing really good cricket. They came out and fought right to the end and unfortunately we didn’t come across the line.

    England’s Chris Jordan, speaking to Sky Sports: “I don’t think we bowled too badly up front – it was just good batting – but we held our nerve at the end. Tom Curran did well, recovering from conceding two boundaries to produce that.

    “TC is a very good death bowler and has skills which nobody else has. If he has an instinct about something, you have to let him go with it. He bowled all of that final over on instinct and blocked out all the suggestions we made about bowling a yorker for the final ball, and thankfully he did. I’d back him to defend eight, so I was pleased to give him 15 to play with.”

    Tom Curran was mobbed after the catch was taken. We have seen a sensational game of cricket.

    It looked like South Africa had won it when three runs were needed with two balls but Curran took two wickets in two balls to win it for England.
