'The one thing that kind of eats' Temba Bavuma

"We've got no excuses, we didn't adapt to the conditions in front of us", said Morgan.

De Kock and Bavuma shared a second wicket partnership of 173 off 170 balls, dominating an England team which included only five of the side that won the World Cup a year ago. Instead they were outbowled and outbatted by a South African side that has been in disarray in recent months.

But, because of the impact on some members, the PCA has backed the England and Wales Cricket Board's recommendation to allow two overseas signings in the County Championship, One-Day Cup and T20 Blast for the first time since 2007.

Denly would eventually grow more adventurous to reach his first ODI fifty since September 2009 before dispatching a Lungi Ngidi slower ball for England's first six in the 47th over, after Woakes had driven to mid-off on 40. The absence of Ben Stokes hurt England as Stokes has bailed the team out over and over again in all formats of the game. We lacked the adaptation to the skill level that was needed. In Woakes in particular - who was playing his 100th ODI - Denly found the right partner, and the pair put on 89.

On Tuesday, he lets his anguish out while speaking at the post-match press conference at Cape Town.

"The new boys will learn a lot - the guys making their debut will have got a taste of global cricket".

"We will continue discussions with the European Central Bank, the counties and importantly the players to ensure their rights are protected and their welfare is supported". That can only come through achieving positive results, but along the way they will also need identify young, untested talent that can take the side to the 2023 World Cup in India.

South Africa were 259-3 with two overs and two balls to spare. Now, both the teams will travel to Durban for the second ODI scheduled for Friday.

Denly's selection is certainly curious, however, if England are not planning to factor him into their thinking for that competition, with this three-match series in South Africa effectively marking the beginning of their journey towards it.

Eoin Morgan has been widely praised for his leadership of the England team, while de Kock is something of an unknown quantity in charge of South Africa after the selectors chose to "rest" Faf du Plessis from this series.

"We did brilliantly well to even put what we thought was a competitive score on the board but we were never in a position to put them (Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma) under pressure with the ball by taking wickets consistently", said the bowler.

The wicket-keeper batsman became the sixth-fastest to 15 tons in ODI cricket.

He said: "To be honest it was just good to be on the field. Today was a good start -- but it's only one game". "We'll see how it goes in the near future". "To be honest I did feel the weight of captaincy while I was batting".
