England collapse in third one-day global against South Africa

ICC Champions Trophy 2017 South Africa ready for first ICC title

Jonny Bairstow helped to spare the embarrassment, but there proved no way back into the match after England crashed to 20 for six in the first five overs - the worst ever start to a one-day global fixture.

Joe Root's shot was then perhaps a signal of England's mis-adventure when he missed Parnell's full-length inswing to be plumb lbw.

It was never going to be enough, though, as South Africa gave themselves a boost going into next month's Champions Trophy, and Amla led their charge.

Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid fell to consecutive deliveries by Rabada in the fifth over - both to catches by Faf du Plessis at second slip - but Bairstow survived the hat-trick ball.

After a string of games in which they have passed 300 more often than not, England appeared to hit the buffers at precisely the wrong moment ahead of Thursday's tournament opener against Bangladesh at The Oval. With England committed to an aggressive approach, which has served them well in recent times, it was probably the sort of incident that was bound to occur sooner or later.

England had made several changes to their side but none were in the top order. It was not the pulled six off Chris Morris, impressive though that was, but an on-driven four off the same bowler that would have pleased any of the great batsmen who have played at this ground over the years. So, Now it is the time for Hashim Amla. It was especially impressive coming from a No. 9 on debut.

London:South Africa opener Hashim Amla achieved yet another milestone as he became the fastest player to reach 7,000 one-day global runs.

Amla achieved the feat in his 150th innings, beating out the previous fastest Virat Kohli of India who took 161 innings.

JP Duminy and AB de Villiers‚ and their unbroken stand of 55‚ took the visitors home with 21.1 overs remaining. Amla is also the fastest man in ODI history to the landmarks of 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000 and 6000 runs.
