T20 World Cup, England vs South Africa Highlights: South Africa defeated England by 10 runs in their final Super 12 Group 1 match but still missed out on qualifying for the semifinals of the ICC T20 World Cup due to net-run-rate calculations on Saturday. Sent into bat, Rassie van der Dussen struck an unbeaten 94 off 60 balls, while Aiden Markram made 52 not out off 25 deliveries to guide South Africa to the commanding 189 for two. Quinton de Kock scored 27-ball 34.

South Africa then needed to restrict England to 131 to seal their semifinal spot ahead of Australia but failed as the Eoin Morgan-led side finished at 179 for eight.

Brief Scores: South Africa: 189/2 in 20 overs (Rassie van der Dussen 94 not out, Aiden Markram 52 not out; Moeen Ali 1/27).

England: 179/8 in 20 overs (Dawid Malan 33, Liam Livingstone 28; Kagiso Rabada 3/48).

Hat-trick for Kagiso Rabada 👏

Rabada dismisses Adil Rashid and Jordan of consecutive balls and that leads to a hat-trick! First of his T20I career and it's a WC hat-trick!

23:12 (IST)06 Nov 2021
Whatta catch🔥

OUT! Kagiso Rabada gets Chris Woakes on the first ball of the over. Terrific catch on the boundary ropes by Nortje. England need 14 runs to win off the last 5 balls.

23:06 (IST)06 Nov 2021
GONE!

Liam Livingstone (28) falls to Dwaine Pretorius! England are 165/5, need another 25 off last 12 balls.

23:04 (IST)06 Nov 2021
Watch: Livingstone's 112m SIX!

22:56 (IST)06 Nov 2021
Three sixes! SA eliminated

What just happened there? Livingstone is on a rampage. The first one is out of the ground. The next is another maximum and that means the Proteas are officially eliminated! Rabada is not getting the length right. And he continues to get it wrong as Livingstone hits him down the ground for another six! 19 from the over. ENG: 144/3 after 16 ovs

22:42 (IST)06 Nov 2021
WICKET! Caught by Miller!!

Shamsi gets his revenge instantly!  An interesting innings from Moeen Ali, lots of movement in his crease, both moving across and coming down the track, ultimately his demise was coming down the track and mistiming a full ball from Shamsi, who adjusted after being hit for 6 previously.

22:37 (IST)06 Nov 2021
SIX! Moeen on 🔥

Moeen slams this one out of the ground. England are now assured of the top spot in the group.

22:35 (IST)06 Nov 2021
Expensive Over!

Moeen Ali gets the measure of Markram and smashes him for a  SIX! Steps out and goes with the turn and clears extra cover. The next ball is a boundary which is followed by a couple of wides. It ends with 15 runs from the over. ENG: 104/2 after 12 ovs

22:33 (IST)06 Nov 2021
England officially qualify for the semifinal


England qualifies for the semis after reaching 87-2 in 10.4 overs. It had looked certain when they had won 4/4 but shows how a big margin win can change NRR. Now SA need to restrict Eng to 131 to qualify from this group of death else Australia goes through

22:31 (IST)06 Nov 2021
ENG eye NRR

England will be hoping to up their scoring rate from here on, only New Zealand(9.50 rpo) have scored quicker in the final 10 overs of T20Is since the last T20 World Cup than England(9.21 rpo)

22:30 (IST)06 Nov 2021
ENG on top at halfway mark!

Rabada overpitches outside off, Malan gets forward, bends his back leg and creams the cover drive. Bavuma chases but can only escort the ball to the fence. ENG- 81/2 after 10 ovs

22:04 (IST)06 Nov 2021
UPDATE:

Jason Roy will take no further part in today's game

22:04 (IST)06 Nov 2021
SHAMSI BRINGS THE MAGIC

It takes Tabraiz Shamsi just 2 balls to make an impact as he traps Bairstow LBW! England 59/2 after 6.2 overs

22:01 (IST)06 Nov 2021
Breakthrough for South Africa

WICKET! Big wicket for SA, Buttler departs after Roy retires hurt. Buttler is gone for 26 as Nortje celebrates the wicket. ENG 58/1

21:56 (IST)06 Nov 2021
Fifty Up for ENG

50 up for England in 5 overs | The Run rate is 10. Jos Buttler 18* Moeen Ali 8* | England need another 140 runs off 90 balls. The run rate required is 9.33 RPO

21:40 (IST)06 Nov 2021
ENG start off well

After Roy (15*) and Buttler (6*) hit two fours against Nortje in the previous over, the former maintains the momentum. Roy takes on Maharaj and hits him for two classy boundaries through mid on and square leg. ENG: 22/0 (3 overs)

21:34 (IST)06 Nov 2021
Roy, Buttler open for ENG

Jason Roy and Jos Buttler open the chase for England as Keshav Maharaj restarts the proceedings with the ball. A good start from the spinner as he puts early pressure on the pair of batters. Just two runs off the over. ENG: 2/0 (1 over)

21:17 (IST)06 Nov 2021
SA end on 189/2, ENG need 190 to win

Two sixes from Markram (52*) and van der Dussen (94*) each against Jordan in the last over guide their team to a commanding total. A brilliant 103-run stand blew away the bowling attack. England to chase 190. SA: 189/2 (20 overs)

21:06 (IST)06 Nov 2021
Van der Dussen maintains momentum

South Africa are looking unstoppable now! After Markram (35*) hits two fours to bring up the 150-run mark for his team, van der Dussen races into his eighties with a beautiful reverse scoop! His fifth boundary so far. SA: 160/2 (18 overs)
