    With Denly's illness, Eoin Morgan and Adil Rashid are the sole survivors from the only T20 match that England have played against South Africa on this ground, in 2009. Rashid was flogged - his first over went for 25, including four sixes, after which point captain Alastair Cook (!) decided not to bowl him again.

    You're looking up which cricketers you share a birthday with now, aren't you?

  3. Post update

    I was born on 1 April (honestly). I share a birthday with David Gower, Stephen Fleming and Jofra Archer.

    If you take me out, that's the makings of a decent side.

    Whilst we're talking T20, you might have missed that England's women won their World Cup warm-up match against New Zealand overnight. The tournament begins on Friday and TMS will have the action live on the wireless.

    Dawid Malan, by the way, will slot in at number four.

    So, for all of the 'Denly or Malan, where does Buttler bat?' chat, England have simply gone for their four top-order players in the top four.

    Jason Roy, Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan is the sort of thing a fielding captain will have nightmares about.

    England captain Eoin Morgan: "The pitch is not what we're used to here but hopefully we can adapt. Joe Denly is ill so we have brought in Dawid Malan. Dawid, in his time in international cricket, has been exceptional.

    "We've learnt a huge amount in this series. We were slow to start in East London but were exceptional in the last game. Hopefully we are getting better as we go on."

    South Africa captain Quinton de Kock: "We want to bat first and put the English under pressure. It's 1-1 and the final game in the series so runs on the board may be key today. We need to win the pressure moments, be clever in how we do things and I think we'll do well."

  11. Post update

    Eoin Morgan says he wanted to chase anyway.

    Interestingly, when asked about another player being hit by illness (remember the problems England had at the beginning of the Test series), he says it's something that needs looking at.

    "We can't carry on like this," he says.

  12. South Africa win the toss and bat

    But that might not be the biggest headline from the toss.

    Joe Denly is ill so misses out. Dawid Malan comes in to bat at four for England.

    In fact, would anyone be against this series being decided in a super over?

    Hold that thought, the skippers are on the way for the toss...

  14. Post update

    In the shared two matches of this T20 series, England are 380-16 and South Africa are 379-15. You can't get a wet newspaper between them.

    Today, the decider comes from Centurion Park. It should be an absolute belter.

    Cricket, eh?
