Commentary (South Africa innings)

That's it from us then. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do join us for the 3-match T20I series which starts from 8th of September. Until then, good bye and take care.

Hashim Amla gets the Man of the Match and Series award. This run machine keeps getting better and better. Amla was Man of the Series earlier in the Test series as well where he scored 482 runs.

Hashim Amla scored 335 runs in the series in 4 ODIs at an average of 111.66 and continued his run feast. Since the first ODI was washed out and South Africa won the second one. England bounced back with two consecutive wins to make it 2-1, today South Africa showed great skills and drew the series 2-2.

Hence, South Africa marched on to a 7-wicket victory and drew the series 2-2 and now are back on to the second spot in the ODI rankings. So England remain unbeaten in the ODI series at home since 2009. Both the teams played some solid cricket throughout the series.

A comprehensive victory for South Africa. Restricted England to a small total of 182 earlier and when came out to bat they suffered a few early blows but didn't see any more hiccups later. Hashim Amla finished with 97 not out and the skipper on 75 not out. Anderson bowled a beautiful spell at the start of the innings but all the other bowlers failed later to provide a breakthrough.

That's it from us then. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do join us for the 3-match T20I series which starts from 8th of September. Until then, good bye and take care.

Hashim Amla gets the Man of the Match and Series award. This run machine keeps getting better and better. Amla was Man of the Series earlier in the Test series as well where he scored 482 runs.

Hashim Amla scored 335 runs in the series in 4 ODIs at an average of 111.66 and continued his run feast. Since the first ODI was washed out and South Africa won the second one. England bounced back with two consecutive wins to make it 2-1, today South Africa showed great skills and drew the series 2-2.

Hence, South Africa marched on to a 7-wicket victory and drew the series 2-2 and now are back on to the second spot in the ODI rankings. So England remain unbeaten in the ODI series at home since 2009. Both the teams played some solid cricket throughout the series.

A comprehensive victory for South Africa. Restricted England to a small total of 182 earlier and when came out to bat they suffered a few early blows but didn't see any more hiccups later. Hashim Amla finished with 97 not out and the skipper on 75 not out. Anderson bowled a beautiful spell at the start of the innings but all the other bowlers failed later to provide a breakthrough.
