Stokes century punishes South Africa
28 May 2017, 02:10 | Rose Hansen
Ben Stokes warmed up for next week's Champions Trophy with a century as England reached 330-6 in the second One-day global against South Africa on Saturday.
On a heavily overcast morning, South Africa unsurprisingly chose to bowl first after winning the toss, having made three changes to the team who lost on Wednesday at Headingley.
The Proteas required seven runs off the final over after England had totalled 330-6 from their 50 overs and, with David Miller (71) and Chris Morris (36) well set, it seemed as though they would get home with little fuss.
Earlier, England profited from at least six dropped catches after being sent into bat.
England have begun this series with increased security measures promised around the matchvenues after Monday's terror attack in Manchester.
Stokes, cleared to play here after a knee injury scare in the series opener, was dropped first and second ball before going on to equal his career-best 101, hitting 11 fours and three sixes from 79 balls.
He deceived Stokes with a well-flighted delivery that took the left-hander's outside edge only for the ball to go straight through Hashim Amla's hands at slip for four.
South Africa, however, then missed dangerman Stokes twice in his first two balls, with Maharaj again the unfortunate bowler.
Middle-order batsman Farhaan Behardien, all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius and spinner Keshav Maharaj have been brought into the team, with JP Duminy, Wayne Parnell and Imran Tahir left out as the South Africans look to give as many players some game time as possible ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy.
Next ball produced another edge, with de Kock failing to hold a more hard chance. However, after getting injured, he did not bowl for the remainder of the match.
