Jofra Archer was the standout bowler for England, taking 3 wickets, while Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali accounted for one wicket each.

The African bowling attack, spearheaded by Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj, who both picked up two wickets, and Otniel Bartman and Enrique Norkhia, who accounted for one wicket apiece, proved decisive.
