South Africa raced to 83/0 in the 6th over, as Rashid was brought into the attack for the 7th over. DeKock welcomed Rashid with a lovely boundary on a full length delivery. That was a super shot, only Kohli and the likes of Guptil can deliver something amazing like that.
Now England had to use their luck and put their hopes on the golden arms of Moin Ali to get the breakthrough they were desperate for. Moin Ali did wonderful job to dismiss the dangerous hero of South Africa DeKock. He had just completed his half century and if he had continued, it would have been a total disaster for England.
The first ball by Moin Ali was played by DeKock towards the leg side. But unfortunately the ball went into the air and went straight into the hands of the fielder on deep mid wicket. England fielder did not make any mistake this time, he knew how important that catch was. DeKock was dismissed for 52 on just 24 balls. Well played DeKock. It was the most entertaining inning yet again from the young South African.
The South African total has already exceeded 200 in the second last over. The final over is still left. Thanks to JP Duminy, he gave a good stand in the middle order after the failure of Captain and AB DeVilliers.
This was a very beautiful display of powerful batting by South Africa today at the top level. Their middle order was disappointing, but they have given England something to work hard for. The use of feet by DeKock was simply beautiful to watch. It was quite a goo wicket to bat on and he took full advantage of that. Well thinking DeKock.
South Africa are on their way to a big total above 220 for sure in 20 overs. The England batsmen will have to bend themselves to get to it. All the credit goes to the brilliant de Kock at the top order. He was simply incredible with Amla tonight. Captain Plessis would be so proud of this boy at the innings break.
