Durban : England held on to their nerves and clinched a thrilling two-run victory over South Africa in the second T20I, and in the process took the ongoing three-match series into what can be expected as an exciting decider.

Chasing a mammoth 205-run target on Friday evening at the Kingsmead, the Proteas needed three off the last two balls , but Tom Curran dismissed Dwaine Pretorius and Bjorn Fortuin to secure the win for the visitors.

After winning the toss, the hosts asked England to bat who got a great start with Jason Roy (40 from 29) and Jonny Barstow (35 from 17) laying a solid base after Jos Buttler fell early.

Star all-rounder Ben Stokes had a rusty start but eventually got into his groove by 47 off 30 balls. However, it was Moeen Ali's blitzing innings of 11-ball 39 which took England past the 200-run park.

Moeen smashed four sixes and three fours and just three of his runs failed to come off boundaries.

Brief Scores: England 204/7 (Ben Stokes 47*, Lungi Ngidi 3/48); South Africa 202/7 (Quinton de Kock 65, Chris Jordan 2/31)
