England Beat South Africa in a Thriller

In a thrilling encounter between England and South Africa, England won against South Africa by only 6 runs at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. It was England who won the toss and set to bat. A good early spell from Peterson left England at 15 for 3, Bopara and Trott were the two batsmen for England who helped to take the score board to at least 171 where it looked to be a easy target for the South Africans to chase on. Peterson and Tahir were the pick of the bowlers for South Africa.

South Africa with their experienced openers Hashim Amla and Smith started very well and gave a thought that it would be a very comfortable win for them. But with a fight back performance from the England bowlers, South Africa got into trouble by losing wickets in quick sessions. Stuart Broad was the bowler who really had done damage to the South African tail end and won the match for England in this thrilling match. England won the match with 6 runs and Ravi Bopara was awarded the Man of the Match for 60 runs with the bat.
