A win on Sunday will work wonders as South Africa will want to head into the four-match Test series, starting 6 July, on a high.
"Dawid Malan was fantastic on debut".
Debutant Dawid Malan hit 78 from 44 balls to help fire England to 181/8 from their 20 overs. "Worlds gone mad", Vaughan tweeted during the match.
Former England global James Taylor, who was forced to retire in his prime at age 26 after he learned of a serious heart condition, was also unequivocal in his views.
Ex-England batsman James Taylor, working as a BBC radio commentator, reckoned: "Eoin Morgan is England's leader - he should be out there nurturing the young lads and leading the way".
Buttler was thrilled to have won the series, and said: "I thought we had a really good score, Dawid batted on a different wicket, made it look really good on debut".
And fellow Middlesex left-hander Malan responded by making 78 in England's total of 181 for eight.
England's innings then petered out, with Paterson removing Sam Billings (12) before bowling Liam Livingstone for a golden duck as the batsman attempted an extravagant ramp shot. England, who had been 133 for two at the start of the 16th over, lost four wickets for 34 runs before finishing on 171 for six. "I've only played one game, especially with the guys we've got - hopefully they rest a few in the next game as well!" I love scoring runs, and that is all I am going to miss over the next two months.
But Morgan said: "It is very important for the development of the side to see how the youngsters go". The previous best was the 46 that Paul Collingwood made in England's very first T20 worldwide against Australia at Southampton in June 2005. Curran, the son of the late former Zimbabwe worldwide Kevin Curran, struck with just his second ball in global cricket when Reeza Hendricks bottom-edged a pull into his stumps. It was a pretty good score, tough to score when they bowled their variations.
Besides, Malan looked every inch an international-quality player.
"It is a big call".
"It's particularly important (to have big crowds) this year, because at the back end of the year we are likely along with other counties to be bidding for our worldwide programme between the years 2020 and 2024", explained Morris.
Another "big call" for England was to overlook speedster Craig Overton for a debut in the series, with former Test batsman claiming the European Central Bank had "broken their word" over his non-selection. "You start knowing your game, what your strengths and weaknesses are and I'd rather be 29 on my debut and knowing what my strengths are than 21 and not being comfortable".
