England are at 47 for one after five overs against South Africa in the ICC World T20 2014 at Chittagong on March 29. England are chasing an imposing 197-run target in the T20 World Cup. Alex Hales is batting on 23 and Moeen Ali is on one. This is a Group 1 Super 10s match in the T20 World Cup.

JP Duminy began proceedings for South Africa. Hales began England’s run-chase with a cover drive for four. Hales then swept a full delivery behind square on the leg side for consecutive fours. Albie Morkel shared the new ball with Duminy. He bowled a short and wide delivery and Hales cut it to the point fielder. The South African players celebrated, but the umpire called it for a front-foot no-ball. Replays showed that the decision has a harsh one as Morkel landed his foot just behind the crease.

Immediately Hales struck back-to-back fours through cover to add fuel to the fire. Beuran Hendricks bowled a length delivery and Lumb clubbed it over deep mid-wicket for a six to get of the mark. There was a mix-up between Hales and Lumb in the fourth over. Lumb sent Hales back after nudging one on the leg side. Dale Steyn missed with his throw as Hales was short of his crease. Hales’s momentum made him destroy the stumps though.

Lumb then played a lofted cover-drive to a full delivery from Steyn and got a big six. Lumb then struck a full delivery from Wayne Parnell in the air down the ground for a four. The next delivery was a low full-toss, but Lumb hit it straight to David Miller at short extra-cover. He was out for 18 off 14 deliveries.

Earlier, England captain Stuart Broad won the toss and elected to bowl first. England are unchanged from their brilliant win over Sri Lanka. South Africa are led by AB de Villiers as Faf du Plessis is serving a one-match suspension. Farhaan Behardien comes in for du Plessis. Wayne Parnell replaces Lonwabo Tsotobe.

South Africa posted an imposing total of 196 for five in their 20 overs against England. Hashim Amla scored a fluent 56 off 37 deliveries with six fours and two sixes at the top of the order. Although, it was AB de Villiers’s brilliant 28-ball 69 that powered South Africa in the end. He struck nine fours and three sixes in his extra-ordinary innings.
