England look to action man Stokes in Champions Trophy

England all-rounders Moeen Ali Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes

It still took an outstanding final over from Mark Wood to keep South Africa at bay by just two runs after David Miller and Chris Morris had taken them to the brink of levelling the series.

Eoin Morgan said that the Proteas deserve a lot of credit for the way they bowled in the first five overs.

Kagiso Rabada wreaked havoc on England's batting line-up with a four-wicket haul, while opener Hashim Amla scored 55 to lead South Africa to a comfortable seven-wicket win in the third ODI at Lord's. Whilst England's openers have struggled, South Africa's have the best recent average of any nation and they set about their business again as Quinton de Kock supported Amla in a stand of 95.

The hosts collapsed to 20-6 in the first five overs after previously dominating the series with the bat.

Jonny Bairstow is breathing down Roy's neck and he did himself no harm by scoring a fluent 51.

Jake Ball was bowled by the spinner, before Steven Finn chipped one up to De Villiers in the 32nd over.

England have rested all-rounders Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali, and paceman Chris Woakes for the third and final one-day global against South Africa on Monday as the trio aim to overcome injury concerns ahead of the Champions Trophy.

They were subsequently bowled out for 153 in only 31.1 overs, before the tourists sealed victory in 28.5 either side of the lunch break in the third and final match of the series.

"I don't know how to explain it really", said England captain Eoin Morgan.

Overlooked for the wicketkeeper's role for England's two ODIs against Ireland earlier in the month and unable to force his way into the opening two clashes of this series, Bairstow had a point to make to the selectors and made it with a typically pugnacious innings - although a century would have bolstered his case no end.

Lake Forest's population has been nearly flat, gaining just six residents past year and losing only nine since 2010. Iowa, as a whole, added 12,696 residents since the previous year, with a new population estimate of 3,134,693.

Jos Buttler edged a drive and was well caught by Faf du Plessis at second slip, and then Adil Rashid went in near action replay next ball to put Rabada on a hat-trick. "We have two hard matches straight up against Australia and England and if we don't start well the tournament's over".

England had a brief flicker of hope as Ball forced Du Plessis to edge behind, but unlike the hosts, South Africa weathered the storm.

Bairstow, England's Test wicket-keeper who many believe should be in England's first-choice ODI side purely as a batsman, stopped the rot.

Bairstow received good support from Yorkshire team-mate Willey before the all-rounder was caught drove Parnell to cover.

Bairstow has staked a strong claim for a regular place in the line-up with three half-centuries in his last four innings and, since the World Cup, has lifted his average by nearly 85 per cent and his strike rate by 22 per cent.
