Dawid Malan helps England edge to a four-wicket win over South Africa to wrap up the Twenty20 series with a game to spare.
Excellent win for England in third world conditions. England once again showed their class. Hopefully make it three wins in a row. Removed

"third world"? Really?

Conditions were fine. Conditions were identical for both teams. Pitch was slow, not unplayable.

Good old Amy, can't commentate and can't be bothered to look up where Malan was born. Poor journalism if ever there was! Still, anything is better than listening to Gough spew his words on Talksport.

I do believe that the BBC and certain subscribers hate to see England win. All I can say is long may you be disappointed.
Yes - no doubt there are too many white heterosexual males in the squad for the BBC’s liking. Removed

Any chance of Hales returning? He's been on the naughty step for a long time
I don’t think Morgan would sanction it, he seems to have taken a stance. Hales is the new Pietersen when it comes to being non grata within the international set up. Players have done worse, Stokes among them. It seems to be personal Removed

It may be a bit personal, but also Hales continued, Stokes used the Bristol incident to grow as a person and player. Hales then got caught doing drugs.
If that messed up the team dynamic, I can see why they don't want him back.

Hales was part of the Bristol incident don’t forget. He’s also failed drug tests and other incidents.

The difference seems to be that after Bristol Stokes has been squeaky clean whereas Hales has had other issues.

Not saying whether it’s the right or wrong approach but the failed drug test before the World Cup was when he was dropped for good after being told he was on his last warning.

Hales is out because there are Players in that T 20 squad who will be out if Hales comes back in.When left out Morgan said it was that he disrupted the Team philosophy of team England. Think he as learned his lesson after two years.Still first signing in the franchise stuff .How can he put it right if not given chance

I can listen to the WBBL and Australia v India so why can't I listen to England v South Africa?
BBC diversity. They’ve pumped so much money into ensuring every programme has additional BAME presenter that there’s no money left. Removed
Correct - even though research commissioned by The Times (February 2019) found that BAME, homosexual and bisexual people were already greatly over-represented on TV. Removed

Not quite right.

1. The South African Charles Llewellyn is generally accredited to be the first bowler of left-arm wrist spin at the Test level.

2. Walter Robins, the man bowled by Achong, said to the umpire "Fancy being done by a bloody Chinaman!" which is not *really* a compliment, is it?
Go and have a cry then. Removed

You seem to be the only one getting all riled up. My comment was a calm explanation as to why his comment was incorrect.

Grow up a bit.

it"s becoming a joke. No less than Seven of England"s side were NOT even born or brought up in the uk The icc has to put a stop this nonsense of effectively buying off players with large money contracts by England and Australia from less well off boards. of course players should not have to be born in the county they play for .But seven ,eight or nine. joke l

Wikipedia says that in regards to Ellis Achong that when someone got out to him they stated that ‘they got done by a bloody chinaman’. Would sound like it was intended as an insult to me.

Crikey I do wonder on today's society and Sport to think of that.

Need to go and Kill or be Killed attitude or we come worse off playing sport especially.

Dominate a team and success look at the Aussies they more or less started no nonsense attitude in Follow ons. Plus the Windies on their ferocious hostile bowling at us ok we did have the Bodyline series too. ??

We get ripped off in UK ... time and time again ... if the few are not stealing pension pots .. the vast profit making companies are making you pay stupid sums of money to watch sport .. the government hire advisors with your tax money to provide advice that a 50 day old pot of coleslaw in the back of a students fridge would give you for nothing .. etc etc Removed

A bit disappointed that Shamsi is now designated a left arm wrist spinner rather than the traditional 'Chinaman'. The term as far as I am aware has never been used in a derogatory way in Cricket, and if anything should be considered a compliment for a rare skill. I expect next 'cow corner' will be done away with as it is considered to be animal cruelty!
