Proteas under perform in PE

By Nomava Nobumba

South Africa roared like lions at Newlands on Friday but went like lambs to the slaughter against England in Port Elizabeth today.

The Proteas could only manage 119 all out in just 36-point-5 overs with top batsmen Graeme Smith scoring two, Hashim Amla 11, AB de Villiers 22 and JP Duminy six runs respectively. The last five wickets fell for just nine runs.

James Anderson was the executioner in chief, taking five wickets for just 23 runs.

Needless to say victory for England is a mere formality to leave South Africa in the position where they must win the final one-day encounter in Durban later this week to share the series.

After ten overs, England had scored 40 runs without loss.
