    Dale Steyn has been ruled out of the ODI series against England as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury.

    England fall short of 400 by one run, drop the weak link Morgan if we want to get into the 400s and maybe even the 500s.

    England have gone from zero to hero in one-day cricket in the space of less than12 months

    Trevor Bayliss and Paul Farbrace must take huge credit for this - they have created an environment where players are not afraid to fail and can express them selves

    England one-day captain Eoin Morgan says his team will continue to play aggressively, despite defeat by South Africa in a series decider.
    England were bowled out for only 236 in Cape Town, with an AB de Villiers hundred giving the Proteas a 3-2 win.
    "Playing that way is a winning formula, it's just a manner of getting better at it and being more consistent," said Morgan.
    "We're still in the learning phase of our development."
    Since an awful World Cup campaign a year ago, a new positive approach to one-day cricket has seen England win series against New Zealand and Pakistan, as well as narrowly losing to world champions Australia.

    Chris Morris scored 14 runs off the final over and two off the last ball, as Reece Topley failed to gather a return at the stumps and complete a run out that would have forced a Super Over, to give South Africa a nail-biting victory at Newlands.
    All part of the learning curve

    Summary of Tour
    A great result in the test series to win 2-1, all be it the victory was helped by injuries to Steyn and Philander. Still questions to be answered about the batting line-up with regard to an opener and the No 5 slot.
    The white ball games were close (apart from the last T20) and the progression made by England is obvious
