Bairstow powers England to T20 victory

Jonny Bairstow powered England to a five-wicket win over South Africa in the first Twenty20 international at Newlands in Cape Town on Friday. Bairstow thrashed 86 not out off 48 balls as England chased down a victory target of 180 with four balls to spare. England were struggling at 34 for three before Bairstow and Ben Stokes (37) changed the momentum of the match with a fourth wicket stand of 85. Even so, South Africa still had a realistic chance of winning as England went into the last four overs needing 51 runs.
