The Proteas outplayed England in the series-decider in Southampton.

Tabraiz Shamsi starred with the ball in South Africa's victory | GettySouth Africa produced an all-round show to register a thumping 90-run victory over England in the third T20I in Southampton on Sunday (July 30).

Invited to bat first, the visitors rode on half-centuries from Reeza Hendricks (70 off 50 balls) and Aiden Markram (51* off 36 balls) to post 191/5 on the board. David Miller (22 off 9 balls) and Rilee Rossouw (31 off 18 balls) also made handy contributions with the bat.

David Willey was the stand-out bowler for England as he claimed three scalps by conceding 25 runs in his four overs.  

Defending the total, the Proteas bowlers displayed a collective brilliance to bundle out the hosts for a paltry 101 in 16.4 overs. Tabraiz Shamsi starred with the ball, returning with the figures of 5 for 24 in his four overs whereas Keshav Maharaj (2/21), Andile Phehlukwayo (1/23), Anrich Nortje (1/12), and Markram (1/5) shared the remaining five wickets among them.

It was a listless batting display from England as no one managed to touch the 30-run mark and most of them fell for a single-digit score. Jonny Bairstow was the top scorer with 27.

With this victory, the South Africa team, led by David Miller, clinched the three-match T20I series 2-1.

For their dominant display, the tourists received rich praise from the cricket fraternity on Twitter.
