South Africa's Rabada and Parnell dismiss England for 153

South Africa's Rabada and Parnell dismiss England for 153

England - who were without Ben Stokes due to a knee injury - had scored 669 runs in the previous two matches but hopes of another 300-plus total ebbed away very quickly as Kagiso Rabada (4-39) and Wayne Parnell (3-43) tore through their top order.

Finally, South Africa won the match, but it lost the series. Fast bowler Rabada took four wickets for 12 runs in his first three overs.

Roland-Jones' call-up as cover came less than 24 hours ago and the Middlesex paceman responded on his home ground with a battling 37 not out from number nine but had little to bowl at as Hashim Amla (55) kickstarted the untaxing chase. But it was a reminder that, when the ball moves, England remain a little vulnerable. Joe Root (ENG) - 772 6.

More swing from the left-armer found Eoin Morgan's outside edge in his next over, and England's whitewash ambitions were already in jeopardy - all the more so when Alex Hales edged Rabada.

England took out the three game series two-one, but now has only 48 hours to rebuild their shattered confidence before the opening match of the Champions Trophy against Bangladesh on Thursday.

South Africa's AB de Villiers with 874 points, Australia's David Warner with 871 and Kohli with 852 points are at the first, second and third spot respectively.

Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid fell to consecutive deliveries by Rabada in the fifth over - both to catches by Faf du Plessis at second slip - but Bairstow survived the hat-trick ball.

The winning runs came from a attractive Duminy drive to the cover boundary, taking him to 28, while captain De Villers marked his 100th ODI as captain with an unbeaten 27. Because of the failure in the last two games.

Confirmation of that inadequacy was being swiftly delivered while Amla raced to a 51-ball 50.

They put down six catches on Saturday‚ but their only blemish on Monday was the hard chance De Kock spilled off Keshav Maharaj for Jake Ball's wicket.
