England could not chase down 175 against South Africa.

England were utterly dominating against South Africa in the first T20 international. They chased down a modest total with ease to win the first game and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. AB de Villiers and Farhan Behardien were excellent for South Africa in the first match as they took their team from 32 for 3 to 142. But, it was never enough as Jason Roy took the South Africa to the ropes. South Africa need to pose a bigger challenge in the second game. England meanwhile have handed debuts to Liam Livingstone and Tom Curran in the second game. Taunton is hosting an international game after a long time. It is a bit overcast as well.
