England snatch dramatic win over South Africa to claim ODI cricket series

Frederick Owens | 28 May, 2017, 02:05

England take on South Africa in the second ODI at The Rose Bowl and will hope to take an unassailable lead in the three-match series.

Stokes took a full part in England's training on Friday, having bowled just two overs in the 72-run win over the tourists in the opening rubber on Wednesday at Headingley before leaving the pitch for treatment on a sore left knee.

His early exit prompted concerns that he could miss the start of the ICC Champions Trophy, but the 25-year-old has been able to shake off the problem.

On a day of six dropped catches by South Africa, it was Stokes who made them pay most heavily with his second one-day global hundred, along with Jos Buttler's 46-ball 50 and telling runs too from Eoin Morgan.

Stokes finally fell in the 44th over when he holed out in the deep to give debutante left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj (1-72) his lone wicket.

South Africa's reply of 328/5 was powered by opener Quinton de Kock's 98 until he was caught behind off Moeen Ali in the 36th over.

But only singles followed as Miller and Morris ran out of steam.

With England set for a busy 2017, which will end with the Ashes in Australia, Stokes may not be risked. Stokes received reprieves off his first two deliveries.

Things could only get better for Stokes, and they did dramatically: he reached his century off 77 balls with 11 fours and three sixes before being caught at long-off.

Stokes hoisted both Phehlukwayo and Chris Morris high over deep midwicket for sixes.

Morgan then needed to summon pace again for a much-needed wicket after De Villiers had joined De Kock in another significant stand.

De Villiers, who made a sparkling 52 at better than a run-a-ball, gloved a well-directed short delivery from fast bowler Liam Plunkett (three for 64) through to wicket-keeper Buttler.
