But Bairstow fell to Chris Morris (2-18) and Roy was out two overs later, adjudged to have obstructed the field as he scrambled to make his ground and avoid a run out in the big turning point in the game.

But then Bairstow went for 47 and, crucially, Roy was adjudged to have obstructed the field as he attempted to return to his crease after a mix-up with Liam Livingstone. If his second six - thumped straight into the River Taff off Morkel -was the most brutal strike in his clinical assault, then the most audacious was the shot that brought up his half-century from 31 balls.as Tahir was dinked through fine leg to the delight of a almost full house.

Roy was the key wicket that the Proteas wanted and they got it in weird circumstances when he was given out for obstructing the field on 67 which really angered the England fans and players.

With Jos Buttler and captain Eoin Morgan falling not long after, the hosts were left needing 12 runs to win off the final over, which was bowled by Andile Phehlukwayo.

The 2nd T20I came right down to the wire with the last ball yielding a result as South Africa won by 3 runs to keep themselves alive in the bilateral T20I series.

Morris was the most successful bowler with two wickets, while Phehlukwayo and Dane Paterson claimed one wicket each.

He said: "We showed a lot of fight".

Roy was clearly aghast but Morgan insisted it had been a "50-50 call". We lost by 19 runs and I can think of 20-plus runs we threw away in the field with silly mistakes.

The game will start at 7 PM IST. Morgan has always been his own man and, while the end might not justify the means for some, the 15,000 supporters that packed out Sophia Gardens under overcast skies could scarcely say they did not get bang for their buck on the day.

But he also showed touch too in flipping leg-spinner Imran Tahir over short fine leg for a four that saw him to fifty. I asked the boys to take it one ball at a time. "Dawid batted on a different wicket to the rest of us".

So it nearly proved here as he piled the misery on the South African bowlers, particularly Phehlukwayo who was dispatched to the boundary three times in one over.

But the match swung South Africa's way when Durban-born Roy became the first player in a Twenty20 global to be given out obstructing the field.

By the end of it, they needed 40 to win from the final 24 deliveries. It's an honour to play for SA, so very happy.

"It's quite easy to lie down and get beaten quickly". "I would have second guessed myself and changed it (the decision to bowl first)". "[Cardiff on Sunday] It's going to be exciting, someone has to lose, try not to be us".
