Dale Steyn bowled South Africa to a thrilling victory over New Zealand in the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.
New Zealand needed seven off the final over but Steyn took two wickets and ran out Ross Taylor (62) off the last ball to secure a two-run win for his side.
JP Duminy had hit 86 not out from 43 balls as South Africa put on 70 off the last five overs to finish on 170-6.
The win was South Africa’s first of the tournament and leaves England bottom of Group One with the Netherlands.
Former skipper Taylor, who hit three sixes in a row and brought up his fifty from 26 balls, looked like steering New Zealand to victory but, crucially, was not on strike at the start of the final over.
Steyn dismissed Luke Ronchi with the first ball and Nathan McCullum with the penultimate one to leave Taylor needing three off the final delivery.
The former skipper clipped the ball back to Steyn and the fast bowler, who finished with figures of 4-17, ran out the Kiwi to wrap up victory.
New Zealand were in control on 57-0 after seven overs but South Africa struck back with Albie Morkel dismissing Martin Guptill (22) with his first delivery and leg-spinner Imran Tahir having captain Brendon McCullum stumped off a wide in the next over for four.
The enterprising Taylor struck Morne Morkel for three successive sixes and a fifty partnership with Kane Williamson came up in 27 balls.
But Steyn, with the help of a superb diving catch from AB de Villiers, saw off Williamson for 51 and Corey Anderson for seven, while Tahir struck again as the Proteas hit back.
The fact they had such a big total was down to Duminy, who came to the crease in the seventh over with his side on 42-3, after De Villiers lost his balance trying to make room for an extravagant hit and was bowled for five.
The 29-year-old left-hander, who hit his side’s first six in the 12th over, put on a stand of 55 with Hashim Amla before Amla was out for 41 in an unusual manner.
Amla smashed an Anderson delivery straight at Duminy, who deflected the ball high into the air off the handle of his bat, and the bowler took the simplest of catches.
With his side on 100-4 after 15 overs, Duminy accelerated with some inventive shots, including one overhead flick for four and a straight drive that had umpire Aleem Dar ducking for safety.
He hit 22 in boundaries in the final two overs to give South Africa a highly competitive score that just proved enough, and won him the man-of-the-match award.
They return to action on Thursday when they face the Netherlands while England, who lost to New Zealand on Saturday, take on group leaders Sri Lanka on the same day.
