Abu Dhabi: Adam Milne is proving to be a threat to the English opponent as he dismissed the opener for just 13 runs off his very first ball.

Bairstow came to the crease with Jos Buttler as Jason Roy was ruled out of the game against South Africa due to injury.

The opening partnership scored 37 runs before the loss of wickets after 5.1 overs. Bairstow leaned into a cover drive to play Milne, sliding this flat towards cover, where Williamson dives further to the left to pick it up.
