South Africa have earned a record-breaking victory over England in the second one-day international, chasing down 343 to prevail by five wickets.
Either side of Ben Duckett’s dismissal for 20, Brook hit seven fours and four maximums during a 74-ball knock of 80, and his exit from the crease was not necessarily felt as Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali took over.
Nevertheless, South Africa never particularly found themselves at a disadvantage throughout their reply, which started with Quinton de Kock and Bavuma putting on 77 for the opening wicket.
Although the former went for 31, Bavuma was ably assisted by Rassie van der Dussen (38) before he departed for 109 off 102 balls, hitting 14 fours and one six.
Adil Rashid was taking punishment with the ball but his dismissals of Van der Dussen and Aiden Markram (49) kept South Africa in check at 282-5, leaving 61 required from 51 balls.
To England’s credit, they pegged South Africa back when it appeared that they would race to victory, but a boundary off the final ball of the penultimate over and a six off the first ball of the final earned South Africa the win with five deliveries remaining.
