    Never liked them tbh but these two against SA have matched the summer for drama, you could not write if you tried. Unbelievable.

    Second Twenty20 international, Durban
    England 204-7 (20.0 overs):
    Stokes 47*, Roy 40, Moeen 39; Ngidi 3-48
    South Africa 202-7 (20.0 overs): De Kock 65, Van der Dussen 43*
    England win by two runs
    Scorecard
    England held their nerve to level the series against South Africa with a thrilling two-run victory in the second Twenty20 international in Durban.

    The hosts needed three off the last two balls to reach their target of 205, but Tom Curran dismissed Dwaine Pretorius and Bjorn Fortuin to secure the win.

    Chris Jordan had seemingly put the total beyond South Africa's reach with two wickets in consecutive balls before Rassie van der Dussen (43 not out) and Pretorius (25) fought back to leave their side needing 15 from the final over.

    Pretorius hit a six and a four to put the Proteas on the brink, but Curran responded with a superb yorker to remove him lbw.

    And then the England bowler bravely sent down a slower ball that Fortuin ramped to Adil Rashid at short fine leg, leaving the hosts agonisingly short on 202-7.

    Moeen Ali's sublime 39 off 11 balls and Ben Stokes' fine unbeaten 47 off 30 balls had earlier propelled the tourists to 204-7 off their 20 overs.

    Proteas captain Quinton de Kock hit a stunning 22-ball 65 to get his side's chase off to a fantastic start before England pegged them back.

    Having fluffed their lines to lose the first T20 by one run on Wednesday, England did not capitulate when South Africa roared back this time.

    The series, level at 1-1, concludes with the third T20 at Centurion on Sunday at 12:30 GMT.
