Jason Roy was given out for obstruction - the primary of its type in T20

The opener regarded like main the Three Lions to a simple win when he clubbed a superb 67 off 45 balls.

However he was dismissed obstructing the sphere on assessment - and England crashed after that.

It was the primary time ever participant had been given out in that fashion in T20 internationals. And it was controversial at that with each batsman and crowd fuming.

Non-striker Roy appeared to alter course with Morne Morkel’s throw hitting his heel and with South African fielders screaming in enchantment, the out button recorded by the TV umpire.

“It’s a 50-50 name,” stated captain Eoin Morgan. “You would see each side. It’s a tough one. We’ve been in these circumstances earlier than the place it’s extra black and white.

“When Jason obtained out, no-one appeared to take the reins from then”

“When Jason obtained out, no-one appeared to take the reins from then. That’s disappointing. Given the place we have been in, we should always have received.”

South Africa’s levelling of the three-match collection now units issues up for an unlikely decider in Cardiff tomorrow.

Morgan handed debuts to Liam Livingstone and Tom Curran for his or her first imternational in Taunton in 34 years.

And Surrey seamer Curran justified his choice with a formidable Three-33 as South Africa set a 175 run goal.

The Proteas batsmen struggled to familiarize yourself along with his tempo and he was rewarded with the scalps of Reeza Hendricks, Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo.

South Africa skipper AB de Villiers was the mainstay of the guests’ batting with 46 from 20 balls - an innings which included 4 fours and three sixes.

And though barely higher than Wednesday’s 142-Three, the 174-Eight simply didn't appear to be being sufficient with England’s batting energy.

Though Sam Billings was out early, Roy and Jonny Bairstow (47) placed on 110 for the second wicket earlier than the later was Morris’ second sufferer.

Then got here the Roy speaking level. England wanted simply 42 off the final 5 overs on the time.

However they fell aside with Jos Buttler and Morgan each falling cheaply.

It left England needing 12 off the final over to win. However Livingstone and Liam Dawson couldn't flip the South African momentum as Phehlukwayo stored his cool.
