  • June 21, 2024 23:27
    ENG 156/6 in 20 overs

    Anrich Nortje will bowl the last over. Nortje to Brook, OUT! What a catch! Brilliant timing for SA to remove set-batter Brook! Brook chips it the in air and Markram runs backwards and completes an astonishing, potentially match-winning catch here! 

    Harry Brook c Markram b Nortje 53(37)

    Jofra Archer takes a single in the next delivery. 13 off four now. Nortje to Curran, FOUR! Poor line from Nortje who bowls down the leg and all it needed was a little glance from Curran to get a much-needed boundary. 9 off 3 now. Curran fails to get the better off the full toss and plays a dot! Is this over for England? 9 off 2 now. He manages just a single as 8 needed off the last ball. Jofra is in the strike and he misses as England bottles this chase by seven runs.

    South Africa continues its unbeaten run to move closer to the semifinal!

  • June 21, 2024 23:08
    ENG 139/4 in 17 overs

    Baartman with his 17th over. Baartman to Livingstone, FOUR! Low full toss on offer for Livingstone, he goes aerial over over for a boundary. FOUR! Another four. This has been a poor over, another full toss, and easy pickings for Livingstone to hit a boundary in the same direction. SIX! This is the breakthrough over. Guess what, another full toss and Livingstone hits a maximum over backward square. FOUR! Poor poor over from Baartman who gives 21 from this over. 25 off the last 3 overs now.

  • June 21, 2024 23:04
    ENG 118/4 in 16 overs

    Anrich Nortje into the attack. Nortje to Brook, FOUR! Brook lofts it over mid-off to start the over with a boundary. FOUR! Another boundary as Brook is turning the tide in favour of England here with his knock. 13 off this over.

  • June 21, 2024 22:42
    ENG 64/4 in 11 overs

    Ottneil Baartman comes back into the attack. Baartman to Ali, OUT! England is losing the plot here. Short and on the body, Ali pulled away but did not time it well as the ball found Maharaj at deep mid-wicket. 

    Moeen Ali c Maharaj b Ottneil Baartman 9(10)

    Liam Livingstone in at number six. Just three off this over. 

  • June 21, 2024 22:36
    ENG 60/3 in 10 overs

  • June 21, 2024 22:32
    ENG 56/3 in 9 overs

    Keshav Maharaj continues with his third over. Maharaj to Buttler, OUT! South Africa is well in the game now. England lost its skipper after Buttler went for a slogsweep but found the fielder at deep mid-wicket in search of a pressure-release shot. 

    Buttler c Klaasen b Maharaj 17 (20)

    Harry Brook is the batter at no. five. Six off this over. 

  • June 21, 2024 22:28
    ENG 50/1 in 8 overs

    Anrich Nortje into the attack now. Another quiet over for South Africa as seven come off this over. England gets to 50.

  • June 21, 2024 22:21
    ENG 43/2 in 7 overs

    Keshav Maharaj continues from around the wicket. He keeps it full and into the middle, Bairstow tries for a reverse sweep not once but twice only to get no runs from them. A couple of singles for Bairstow and then Buttler as the former returns to the strike. Maharaj to Bairstow, OUT! Short and wide from Maharaj, Bairstow tries for a big shot but a brilliant catch by Anrich Nortje gives SA a second wicket. 

    Bairstow c Nortje b Maharaj

    Moeen Ali is the batter at 4. He ends the over with a dot. 

  • June 21, 2024 22:19
    ENG 41/1 in 6 overs

    Ottneil Baartman comes in place of Rabada. Baartman’s pace keeps both batters in a leech as just five come from this over. England manages 41 from PowerPlay. 

  • June 21, 2024 22:17
    ENG 36/1 in 5 overs

    A first change in the bowling attack as Keshav Maharaj comes into the attack in place of Jansen. Buttler gets a quick double in the first delivery. FOUR! Buttler plays reverse sweeps to beat the backward point fielder. Eight come from this over. 

  • June 21, 2024 22:13

  • June 21, 2024 22:06
    ENG 26/1 in 3 overs

    Marco Jansen continues. Bairstow cuts the short ball for a couple to start the over. A front-foot no-ball from Jansen gives a freebie to Bairstow, who opens his arm to get a FOUR in the fifth delivery. 10 comes from this over. 

  • June 21, 2024 22:03
    ENG 16/1 in 2 overs

    Kagiso Rabada from the other end. Buttler gets a single in the second delivery. FOUR! Salt clubs the full ball down the ground to get a boundary at long-off. Rabada errs in his lines to bowl a couple of wides. Rabada to Salt, OUT1 Big wicket for Rabada! A full ball on off, was in the slot for Salt who tried to clear the cover region but a brilliant diving catch by Reeza cut short his stay in the middle. 

    Philip Salt c Reeza Hendricks b Rabada 11(8)

    The new batter, Jonny Bairstow, gets off the mark straightaway with a single off the last delivery of this over. 

  • June 21, 2024 21:55
    ENG 8/0 in 1 over

    Phil Salt and Jos Buttler open for England. Marco Jansen has the new ball. The left-arm pacer uses his height to cramp Salt with short balls. Two dots to start the over. SIX! Short and pulled away nicely by Salt and he gets off the mark in some style. A dot before Salt takes a single, giving the strike to Buttler. Skipper gets off the mark with a single to end the first over. 

  • June 21, 2024 21:46

    The Proteas have been restricted to the lowest first innings total at this venue in the tournament. After scoring 63 runs for no loss in the PowerPlay, South Africa would have definitely hoped for a better total. Quinton de Kock scored a brisk 65 and David Miller provided some late push with an unbeaten 43 off 28 balls. Can South Africa defend this? We will find out soon. 

  • June 21, 2024 21:34
    SA 163/6 in 20 overs

    Archer to bowl the final over. OUT! Sensational diving catch at long-off by Harry Brook and Miller is gone first-ball. OUT! Another excellent catch, this time by Curran, and Marco Jansen is gone first-ball. Archer is on a hat-trick! FOUR! Keshav Maharaj cuts this aerially to deep third, and Wood touches the cushion while trying to parry this back in and that will be a boundary. A single and then a brace off the following deliveries as Archer keeps it tight. Last ball is pace off and Stubbs has to settle for a single as he misses the pull. 

  • June 21, 2024 21:29
    SA 155/4 in 19 overs

    Curran to bowl the penultimate over. Cut away by Miller for a couple as Curran takes the pace off the ball. Full toss, and Miller fails to clear the square-leg boundary. Livingstone pulls off a good effort to keep the ball in for just a couple. SIX! In the slot, Miller gives himself room and launches this over long-off for a maximum. Fourteen runs from the over as Curran ends with 0/29 from his three overs. 

  • June 21, 2024 21:24
    SA 141/4 in 18 overs

    Archer bowls his third over. SIX! Much-needed intent from Miller. Length ball and Miller picks it up and deposits it over square-leg for half a dozen runs. Archer responds with a pace off bouncer and Miller can’t do anything about it. Lets it go. This is pulled away to deep midwicket for a single by Miller. Stubbs tries to go for a reverse-scoop but Archer follows him as the batter backs away outside leg-stump. 

  • June 21, 2024 21:19
    SA 133/4 in 17 overs

    Topley will bowl out. He mixes his variations to good effect and concedes just five runs, including a wide. 

  • June 21, 2024 21:15
    SA 128/4 in 16 overs

    Wood again. FOUR! Length ball and Miller pulls this through midwicket for a boundary. Full and driven to mid-off but straight to the fielder. Beaten! Angling away from the left-hander and Miller slashes and misses. FOUR! Short and Miller swivels and pulls this to the square-leg boundary after a couple of dot balls in a row. Driven to deep point by Miller for a single. FOUR! Drifting down leg-side and Stubbs flicks this fine and past the wicketkeeper to collect a boundary. 

  • June 21, 2024 21:09
    SA 115/4 in 15 overs

    Rashid bowls his last over. FOUR! Miller brings out his reverse-sweep and finds the boundary at point. OUT! Markram is cleaned bowled and South Africa loses its captain. Tossed up by Rashid and Markram ended up dragging this onto his stumps. Tristan Stubbs is off the mark with a single first ball. A single for Miller to end the over and Rashid bowls out with excellent figures of 4/20 from his four overs. 

    Aiden Markram b Adil Rashid 1 (2b)

  • June 21, 2024 21:02
    SA 107/3 in 14 overs

    Mark Wood bowls his first over. Miller starts off with a single through the off-side. Going down leg-side and the ball clips Klaasen’s thigh pad and good stop by Buttler behind the stumps. This is short and going down leg-side. Called wide. That’s 100 up for SA in 13.2 overs. 

    OUT! Klaasen is run out by a fantastic direct-hit from Buttler at the bowler’s end. It was a bouncer that sailed over Klaasen’s head and Miller called for a single as Buttler didn’t collect it cleanly initially. But then he turned around and produced a fantastic run out. FOUR! Miller gets an outside edge and this runs away to the boundary. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:57
    SA 98/2 in 13 overs

    Curran returns. FOUR! Full and hammered through mid-off by Klaasen and he gets his first boundary. Klaasen shuffles across his stumps to flick this on leg-side but misses. Appeal from Curran but not given and Buttler goes upstairs. Wickets is umpire’s call as the ball would have just clipped the middle-stump. But England retains the review. Outside edge now from Miller and goes to short-third on the bounce. Flicked through square-leg by Miller for a single and he gets off the mark. Just six runs from the over. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:50
    SA 92/2 in 12 overs

    Archer returns after a 21-run first over. He starts with a very wide full toss outside off and he will need to bowl that again. Archer now decides to bowl into the pitch, rather than overpitching, as he did in his first over. Just two runs from the first three balls. Slow full toss on the pads to Klaasen and he flicks it away for just a single. OUT! Pace off, short, and De Kock gets an outside edge trying to cut this over short-third. Unbelievable catch by Buttler behind the stumps, as he leaps high to his left to grab this one. Both openers now back in the hut. David Miller is greeted with a bouncer and he ducks under it. 

    Quinton de Kock c Jos Buttler b Jofra Archer 65 (38b 4x4 4x6)

  • June 21, 2024 20:47
    SA 89/1 in 11 overs

    Rashid continues after the break. Right on the money from the leg-spinner. He maintains a tight line on the stumps and just two singles come from the over. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:39
    SA 87/1 in 10 overs

    Moeen will continue. FOUR! Tossed up outside off and De Kock confidently advances down the track and lofts it over cover for a boundary. OUT! Hendricks skies this high in the air and taken at long-on. He stepped out to hit this down the ground but never got to the pitch of the ball, and his bottom hand too came off. Heinrich Klaasen is the new man in. Time for Drinks Break! 

    Reeza Hendricks c Harry Brook b Moeen Ali 19 (25b 1x4)

  • June 21, 2024 20:33
    SA 80/0 in 9 overs

    Rashid again. De Kock slog sweeps as this is pitched outsisde-leg and he finds the fine-leg fielder. The umpires will check if that was taken cleanly. Oh! It looks like Mark Wood may have grassed that one. And given NOT OUT by the TV umpire! De Kock survives. Buttler isn’t happy and has a word with the umpires. But the decision obviously stands. Just five runs from the over. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:30
    SA 75/0 in 8 overs

    Moeen comes back for his second over. A couple of twos for De Kock as he realises it’s about time for some more acceleration. Just six runs from the over. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:28
    SA 69/0 in 7 overs

    De Kock brings up his fifty off 22 balls. The fastest of this tournament. But just six runs from the Adil Rashid over. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:21
    SA 63/0 in 6 overs

    Here comes Sam Curran with the ball. Width outside off and cut away by De Kock for three runs. Liam Livingstone with an awkward effort in the deep to save the boundary. Curran comes around the wicket to Hendricks. He collects a leg-bye as Curran strays on the pads. SIX! Short and pulled away by De Kock for another maximum. He is looking in ominous form today. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:16
    SA 51/0 in 5 overs

    FOUR! Topley continues and De Kock guides this behind point for a boundary. Tapped on the off-side next ball for a single. Going down leg-side and called a wide. Pushed to cover by Hendricks for another single. Full ball and flicked through midwicket by De Kock for one more. Fifty up for SA in 4.5 overs with a single. Clipped to deep square-leg by De Kock for a single to end the over. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:12
    SA 41/0 in 4 overs

    Jofra Archer into the attack. De Kock gets an inside edge and the ball thuds into his upper thigh. He looks in some discomfort. SIX! And he responds with his trademark pick-up shot. Good length ball, too straight and this sails over fine-leg for a maximum. SIX! Too full and De Kock clears his front leg and hammers this over deep midwicket for another maximum. FOUR! Short now and De Kock cuts this over short third for another boundary. Cutter from Archer and De Kock punches this on the off-side for a quick single. FOUR! Short again and pulled away with disdain by Hendricks to the midwicket boundary. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:08
    SA 20/0 in 3 overs

    Topley continues. Hendrick starts off with a single. Cut away by De Kock now for a couple behind point in the deep. Inside edge for De Kock and he collects a single at mid-on. Yorker is tucked away by Hendricks for a single at deep square-leg. Tucked on leg-side for a single by De Kock to end the over. 

  • June 21, 2024 20:04
    SA 14/0 in 2 overs

    Moeen Ali from the other end. Guided behind point by De Kock for a single and he is off the mark. A slip is in place for Hendricks. Flicked through midwicket by him for one more. FOUR! And first show of intent. De Kock steps out and drills this tossed up delivery down the ground for a boundary. SIX! And this sails just over the head of the long-off fielder for a maximum. 

  • June 21, 2024 19:59
    SA 2/0 in 1 over

    Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks will open the batting. Reece Topley with the ball. Over the wicket to Hendricks. On a good length on middle and leg and defended on the leg-side. Still very straight from Topley and flicked on leg-side for another dot ball. Angling away just outside off now and defended to cover. Three dots in a row to start with. Full outside off and driven straight to the cover fielder again. Off the mark with a couple through cover-point. Another dot ball to end the over. Just two runs from it. 

  • June 21, 2024 19:56

    Gros Islet Pitch Report

    In eight innings at this venue so far in the tournament, the 200-run mark has been breached a couple of times, while teams batting first have touched or gone beyond the 180-run mark on every occasion. In the last game at this venue, England overhauled West Indies’ 181-run target in just 17.3 overs. 

    Though runs have come at a brisk pace at this venue, the pitches have good bounce and carry, and also some help for the spinners. Though the fast bowlers have picked more wickets (25) than the tweakers (19), the latter have been more economical (8.21) than their quicker counterparts (9.74).

Jos Buttler’s squad is set to face South Africa at the same venue on Friday, knowing that a win will virtually secure its place in the last four.
