Commentary

Tricky pitch here in Paarl today, and England's vaunted batting lineup had to dig deep against a determined bowling attack. But once again they were able to summon that little bit extra as they have done recently to polish off another series. Unbeaten in eight consecutive series now, winning seven of them. A dead-rubber in Newlands remains. That's it from us for now. It's a goodbye from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Raju Peethala and Sriram.

Morgan, England captain: We weren't up against the run rate like we were in Newlands. With a short boundary and the wind, we were only one or two big overs away here. Experience helps. Holding your nerve, having been in this situation a number of times. Today's performance was very pleasing. Have to applaud the bowling unit.

This series in particular and probably the next one in India, we need to maximize it in finding roles for everyone. Will be looking to build strength in depth and giving players opportunities.
