Wayne Parnell’s twin strikes halted England‘s progress in their run-chase against South Africa in the ICC World T20 2014 at Chittagong on March 29. Parnell dismissed Alex Hales and Moeen Ali off consecutive deliveries as England were going above their required run-rate. England are chasing an imposing 197-run target in the T20 World Cup. Eoin Morgan is batting on nine and Jos Buttler is on eight. This is a Group 1 Super 10s match in the T20 World Cup.

After Lumb’s wicket, Hales immediately swung the momentum back in England’s favour with two fours and a six in-a-row off Hendricks in the sixth over. The fours were towards deep square-leg and point. The six was high over deep mid-wicket. Ali got his first four with a cut shot to a wide delivery from Imran Tahir.

Parnell struck in the eighth over as Hales mistimed a lofted drive in the air to Miller at deep extra-cover. He was dismissed for 38 off 22 deliveries. The batsmen crossed and Ali was in strike. He got a thin edge behind as Quinton de Kock took the catch to put Parnell on a hat-trick. Ali was out for 10. Jos Buttler edged the hat-trick ball towards third-man and got of the mark.

After the loss of those two wickets the onus was on Morgan and Buttler to guide England. Morgan played an inside-out shot off Duminy over extra-cover for his first four.

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.
