Baz McCullum is commentating. He's built like a fridge. Absolute man mountain. Clearly keeping on top of his phys even in retirement

Roy probably eats plenty of Candy (he loves) 10 fours by him now I guess

Livingstone is costing us this game. 14 from 16 and a dropped catch. Score or get out. We need a 10 from 5 here.

England in trouble now. Need a boundary and Livingstone needs to slog or get out

Need 12 off the last over.

I think South Africa have done enough to win.

I'm heavily critical of Livingstone he had a poor debut and Jordan had a poor match.

Otherwise, or rather nevertheless, an amazing game.

Well done South Africa!

And to cap it all off Livingstone wastes a delivery with a stupid lap shot then runs himself out.

A pathetic debut, may as well never have turned up

Dawson smashed a four to save some blushes but has to hit four to win off the final ball. Won't happen

South Africa win. Well done.

Livingstone and to a lesser extent Jordan cost us that game.

Livingstone will have to do a lot to have me wanting him back in the team after that appalling debut.

South Africa bowled sharp, though the behaviour of Morris was regrettable and the Roy dismissal controversial but fair enough.

All set for the final in Cardiff!

We did have it until Roy was given out obstructing the field. After that South Africa bowled tighter and the remaining batsmen were not up for it.

For once England's batting was stronger than their bowling.

But credit to South Africa, a thoroughly enjoyable game. I jumped up shouting for joy when Curran took a wicket with his second ball.

There will be more rotation next game by England. The sensible option seems to be to drop Jordan and Livingstone for the two others due a go, who I believe are Malan and someone

And now Livingstone is out first ball trying to switch hit?!

Get him back in county cricket. Completely out of his depth and in no way ready for international cricket. Two nothings with he bat out to stupid brainless shots and dropped one dolly of a catch.

3 quick wickets. Saffer openers are too fragile.

Curran another excellent game. Malan impressive on debut too, top scorer with a solid knock.

Livingstone dire again. Not ready for top flight.

37 needed from 7 balls. England have this wrapped up.

Series victory whoop whoop

Curran takes two! Or does he? Checking if it's a no ball for height?

Win by 19 runs. Excellent well done boys

South Africa had a good middle game and never played poorly. But England were sharp all your so far.

Test matches to follow! Enough of this pyjama cricket.

I admire Morgan decision to rest himself for Malan to have a go. Team player he is.
