SA vs ENG 2nd ODI Twitter reactions: Miller and Bavuma lead SA to emphatic series win | Twitter reactions to South Africa beating England

South Africa secured a sensational series victory in the ongoing One Day International (ODI) series vs England as they chased down 343 with relative ease in the second game of the three-match series at the Mangaung Oval on Sunday.

Under-fire skipper Temba Bavuma starred with 109 off 102 deliveries and was ably supported by dynamic southpaw David Miller notched 58 off 37 deliveries to help the home side get to the total in the final over of the encounter.

The likes of Aiden Markram and Marco Jansen played a fine hand with the bat as well – scoring 49 and 32 runs respectively, with the latter remaining unbeaten until the end with Miller to safely see off the chase.

Frontline English pacers like Chris Woakes and Reece Topley were taken to the cleaners as they conceded 134 runs in their combined 15.1 overs without scalping any dismissal.

Here are some of the reactions on the Protea performance.

Earlier, England put up a scintillating batting performance – scoring 342 in 50 overs courtesy an incredible knock of 94 runs in 82 deliveries by skipper Jos Buttler. Harry Brook was quite flawless in his innings of 80 runs, which included seven boundaries and four sixes.

All-rounder Moeen Ali bagged his first ODI half-century in nearly five years as he took 45 deliveries to get to 51 with six boundaries and a six to form a fruitful 106-run partnership in 14.5 overs with Buttler.
Sam Curran pulled off the finishing act pretty well, hitting three sixes en route the 28 runs he scored in 17 deliveries.

The English top-order arguably flattered to deceive as the trio of Jason Roy, Dawid Malan and Ben Duckett were back in the pavilion by the 17th over.

South Africa have now attained an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. The third ODI will be played at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley, Northern Cape on Wednesday.
