David Miller was the happy many on Sunday compared to his contemporary Jos Buttler, who saw his England team lose by a crushing 90 runs to South Africa on Sunday in their Twenty20 series.

Chasing down the score of 192 set by South Africa, England was dismissed for 101- their joint-biggest defeat in T20I.

However, it was Tristan Stubbs who caught the eye of everyone with a "Jonty Rhodes" style acrobatic catch on the short-extra cover.

Moeen Ali was brilliantly caught one-handed by a leaping Tristan Stubbs off part-time spinner Markram. Moeen's effort to comfortably find the gap in the field failed after Stubbs ran towards the ball and pulled off a full-length dive to hold onto the ball.

South Africa won the series 2-1.

It continues the tough start to life as England’s white-ball captain for Buttler, who replaced Eoin Morgan in June and saw trusted ally Ben Stokes retire from 50-over cricket a month later.

India had already won two limited-overs series against the hosts by that point and this loss to South Africa, which enjoyed half-centuries by Reeza Hendricks and Aiden Markram in a total of 191-5, leaves the home side low on confidence before this winter’s T20 World Cup.
