England players after wining the match celebrated.

The high-scoring affair at Wankhade between England and South Africa witnessed so many twists. South Africa batting first scored 229 for the loss of six wickets. Quinton de Kock’s early onslaught provided South Africa a rollicking start and Hashim Amla showed his explosive best with 58 run innings off 31 balls.

But, England had the last laugh as they won the humdinger match with two balls remaining. Joe Root scored 83.

Earlier, JP Duminy launched an onslaught in the death over and scored  54 off 28 balls while David  Miller scored 28 off 12 balls.

But, shocking everybody England came up with an epic reply. Alex Hales and Jason Roy gave a solid reply to South African bowlers. The opening duo scattered shots around the Wankhede park in front of thousands of fans. England lost three wickets, but hundred came 8th over of their innings, which is the second fastest in the history of World T20. In 2014, Netherlands  have scored the fastest hundred in World T20 against Ireland at Sylhet.

Hales lost his wicket in the fourth over, Roy also went after playing a blinder of a knock in the fifth over and in the sixth over Stokes has gone after smashing one six and one four.  Joe Root scored 83 run innings off 44 balls that made all the difference in the match.

Morgan’s early departure didn’t slow down England’s attack over the South African bowlers. Buttler  smashed the South African bowlers and keep the momentum going. None of the South African bowlers conceded less than 10 runs par over except Imran Tahir who conceded  eight runs par over.
