And that brings us to the end of our coverage of Match 1 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, with the home side streets ahead of the Proteas today in all departments. The 104-run win has given them a massive boost in terms of Net Run Rate right at the outset of their campaign, and Eoin Morgan's men will hope to keep the party going when they take on Pakistan at Trent Bridge on Monday. South Africa, on the other hand, will have to try and put this embarrassing loss behind and start afresh when they take on Bangladesh this Sunday at the same venue. 

Meanwhile, we have West Indies vs Pakistan at Trent Bridge taking place tomorrow. Do join us in our coverage of the second game of the 12th edition of the ICC World Cup. For now, we bid you all good night!

Eoin Morgan, England captain: "It's more satisfying than normal. We were very good today. The smart cricket that we played shows our improvement over the years. (On Stokes) He's had a full day today. That catch was outstanding. The bowling unit did really get off to a great start. Learnt from the South Africans and then put it to use. (On Archer) It's outstanding for a young guy just starting his career. He's taking it in his stride. (Fielding) It's an area we're always trying to improve on. We're always looking for match-winning contributions on the field. 

22:22 (IST)

Faf du Plessis, South Africa captain: We brought it back really well. Two wickets upfront and we felt like 3 down in the first few overs with Amla's injury. I thought 300 was a par score. We were bowling cutters basically at the back end. It (starting with spin) was a plan. We wanted to target the openers with leg spin, especially Roy. Was tryng something different and it worked. England batted well. When you chase big score, you need partnerships. You need a momentum at the start. Amla is okay now. He was a little all over the place when he came to bat again. 

22:13 (IST)

Ben Stokes, to no one's surprise, is the Man of the Match for his all-round performance

Stokes: I had a little bit of a panic to be honest. Was a little further than I should've been. Luckily it stuck. I didn't really know how to react. The message was to get to 310-330. So we tried to pace it. Towards the end, boundaries were hard to come by, but psychologically, getting past 300 was big. Fantastic turnaround today.

After 39.5 overs,South Africa 207/10 ( Lungi Ngidi 6 , )

Stokes concedes eight runs off the first three deliveries of his third over, including a boundary to Rabada off the first delivery, but the New Zealand-born all-rounder wraps it up by dismissing Rabada and Tahir off successive deliveries to finish with figures of 2/12. South Africa's innings doesn't last 40 overs in the end, as they crumble to a 104-run loss in the end. Superb start for the tournament hosts, who have been heavily favoured to end their World Cup hoodoo this time around.

And there we have it. South Africa’s batting failed them although there’s no calling this a choke. England simple batted to their potential, or as close to their potential as they were allowed to by a resolutely tight South African attack. Well played, England. Especially that man Archer. Bet you no-one’s going to say he shouldn’t have been picked now.

OUT! What a day for Stokes! He top-scores for England with 89, takes a mind-blowing catch in the deep, and now collects wickets of back-to-back deliveries as South Africa are bowled out for 207.

The captain has done more than most to transform England from no-hopers at the last World Cup to the most exciting team going into the 2019 edition.

After enduring humiliating lessons from a group-stage exit four years ago, Morgan set about pushing England to plan for and win this World Cup, conveniently being staged on home grounds across the next six weeks and four days. The resurgence has been incredible.

South Africa, meanwhile, will be without one of its best fast bowlers. Dale Steyn's old right shoulder injury flared in April in the Indian Premier League and he was not ready in time for the start of the World Cup. He was picked in the squad in the expectation he will recover, and South Africa believe he will be fit to play its third game on 5 June against India.

The South Africa battery will still be impressive. There are Kagiso Rabada, who was over a back injury he sustained on 1 May, Lungi Ngidi, coming back from a side strain, Andile Phehlukwayo, and the retiring-but-menacing leg-spinner, Imran Tahir.
