Wickets for Ball in England defeat

30th May 2017

Warsop's Jake Ball took two wickets on what was otherwise a totally forgettable day for England in the Third One-Day International with South Africa on Monday.

Having already wrapped up the series, Eoin Morgan's side were put into bat by the tourists and collapsed to 20 for 6, Nottinghamshire's Alex Hales one of those to fall cheaply as he was dismissed for just one run.

His county teammate Ball scored seven towards the bottom of the order as England were bowled all out for 153 with just under nineteen overs remaining.

The Welbeck Wizard then took the scalps of Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis but South Africa reached their target with seven wickets and over 21 overs to spare.

Although he described the defeat as a "hiccup" in a series England won 2-1, Morgan admitted after the match that a lesson had been learned "with the bat and ball".

England's next game is their opening match in the Champions Trophy against Bangladesh at the Kia Oval on Thursday, a tournament in which the hosts are favourites.
