England earned a 1-1 draw from their ODI series against South Africa as wickets for Adil Rashid and another Joe Denly half-century set up a two-wicket win over the Proteas in Johannesburg.
South Africa were indebted to David Miller’s unbeaten 69 from 53 balls to put a competitive score on the board after man-of-the-match Rashid had taken 3/51 on his return to the side.
England appeared to be cruising when Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy set about the target in T20 fashion with a partnership of 61 in six overs, before Denly’s 66 in 79 balls took his side to the brink of victory.
But his downfall prompted a dramatic collapse as England slumped from 232/4 to 252/8 before squeaking home thanks to an unbeaten 17 from Moeen Ali.
