100 runs up for South Africa. At the end of 21 overs South Africa are 105/3.

Match Summary: A solid win in the end for South Africa and much-needed. It though got a lot closer than they would have liked but they’ll be happy they held their nerve and managed to take a 1-0 lead in the series. Sanju Samson played a wonderful innings but it went in vain. It could have been a lot more different if he took the strike in the 39th over.
